COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly Tail Wagger Black IPA
A Big Bold Hoppy IPA that finishes with a dark twist.
True to its IPA roots Dogzilla has a massive hop presence that is Piney and Citrusy. A malty backbone, along with the dark malt gives it a bit of a roasty finish. Brewed with Simcoe and Cascade Hops, Pale Malt, Munich, and Black Barley.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
Kind of a murky chestnut brown with a thin bubbly head. The aroma is very toasty and earthy, both from malt and hops. Toasty palate with earthy hops, a dull bitterness and unfortunately not much brightness. Gets chewy towards the finish, possibly with some alcohol. Just needed something for me to latch onto.

Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours black with a slight, beige head. Fruity, orange citrus hop aroma with underlying roast. Pleasantly sweet with notes of grapefruit, caramel and dark malts with some piney bitters. Medium bodied with average or low carbonation. Lightly roasted malts and some resiny hops to finish. Quite nice.

bhensonb (11360) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Very dark color, but there is lots of ruby on the edges. The head is multifinger beige. Aromas of resin and floral hop with roasted malt. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Taste is astringent hop with reasonably toasted malt. There is a lot of herb or floral aspect. Maybe even a little grassiness. Sort of puckers the mouth in the finish. Lots going on with this one. With time I can imagine there is a bit of sour. But maybe it’s just astringency.
