COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA has an Intense hop aroma and strong malt body, followed by a smooth clean finish. Pacific Northwest malted barley with hops from the fields of Yakima have come together to create this IPA that is very hoppy but very balanced with complex malt flavors. The IPA is best served cool, not ice cold so as not to subdue the hop aroma. The perfect beer for any day.

12 oz can. Pours bright gold and a bit hazy. Medium head. Fresh piney hops. Taste is the same with some lemony citric flavors. Not much of a balance here-mostly just a hop bomb. Decent.

maxwelldeux (3500) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Can. Pours a hazy copper color with a moderate white head on there. Nose is definitely hoppy, with some floral and grassy bits coming through for me. Taste is nicely light and bitter, but with a maltier backbone that I expected, and some nice toasting coming through. Decent brew.

Fritz123 (939) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Can from a trade with Darrel. Thanks! Pours a golden orange with a thick white head and great spider lacing throughout. Aroma is pungent and slightly dank with pine, resin, and fresh cut grasses. The taste is also pungent and dank with fresh pine, weeds, grasses and pasture. Mostly light body and somewhat of a dry finish.

Laughing Dog India Pale Ale has a very thick, off-white head, a mostly clear, golden appearance, with tiny white specs suspended throughout, a few lazy ascending bubbles, and fairly heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet malts and piney hops. Taste is of the same, with an overriding sugariness, and there is an underlying hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and slick, and Laughing Dog India Pale Ale finishes semi-dry and easily drinkable. No alcohol shows up with this beer. I suggest checking this out. RJT

Can pour. Somewhat cloudy orangish yellow with white head. Aroma of sweet citrus hops. Creamy smooth with the right amount of malt. Was expecting more with the type of hops but does leave a slight lingering bitterness to chew on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jdb288 (480) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Fresh can. Pours clear orange/gold with no head. Aroma is grass, hay, some floral/citrus, more grapefruit than others. Malt comes through here heavily...overly sweet but the hop/resin/pine tones are good.

12 oz can. Pours a nice golden amber with little head. Great malty flavor with a balanced hop load. Not too bitter with a medium palate. Great drinking IPA!
