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.

Served in a pint glass from a 12 oz. bottle. Very tasty India Pale! Poured hazy golden with about a 2 finger of off white creamy head. Lots of carbonation bubbles coming from the bottom. The smell was instant pine and citrus...very hop forward on the nose. Taste was floral, citrus and bitter hops up front soon followed by a mild malt sweetness. Lots of oily hop resin and stickiness on the palate. Overall I would say this was a fantastic representation of a well crafted IPA. Great offering from Laughing Dog...will definitely buy this again!

Draft 10 oz glass at the brewery taproom; Sexy orange-amber and nicely lacing as it goes down the glass. Wow, this is a wonderful, big citrusy and hoppy brew in the true spirit of NW USA IPAs ... grapefruity, resin and sticking to my gullet. This is awesome with a capital A. (#2902, 5/17/07)

on Tap at the brewery: light golden copper color somewhat cloudy with a huge piney/citrusy hop nose, good carbonation with a nice long lasting head, great lacing all the way to the bottom of the glass. I have been trying all of this brewerys beers with my brother and can say I have yet to have a bad one I see a post that someone had a bad experience must have been a bad tap or bottle as this brewery has turned out nothing but good brews in my opinion.as a side note I have succumbed to the hop side and now cannot get away from them

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2009 wild and hoppy, like it was made in some cabin up in northern idaho. one of my favorite ipas flavors are all over the place, sweet, bitter, pungent and a very resiny finish.

355ml Bottle. Pours a nice golden orange. Rich hoppy aroma, smooth and balanced from start to finish. I poured this after a short (3 hr) road trip and the timing was perfect. Very drinkable.

Draft at The Hydra in Sandpoint, ID. Nice amber/orange color, good white to slightly off-white head. Nice malt flavor and good hop bite. Very clean flavors, nice and fresh. the hop flavor was top notch (piney, bit of grapefruit/citrus and herbs). Hop flavor stays there for a bit. Very good IPA. Reminds me of an IPA old Bert Grant (RIP) made in Yakima.
