Lived up to the name of trying to be a big dog... might try a little harder but still a great ale, I thought it had a nice sweet malty flavor that turned hoppy towards the end. Great color though, but as a IPA wish it had more of a bite
On tap at the brewery. A light golden amber with thin off-white head. A classic old-school IPA with lots of floral spice and a light malty sweetness. Long sticky bitter finish. Sledutah (7788) - Utah, USA - MAY 21, 2016

Clear golden with a medium sized white head, good lacing. Aroma and flavors of citrus with a crisp, dry finish
Draft at the source. Hazy golden color. Nice fruity aroma. Taste has lightly bitter grapefruit and pineapple. Nice. BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - JAN 5, 2015
On tap at the Reno Brewpub. Some citrus and caramel. Unbalanced and weak. Finishes with a light bitterness and an odd aftertaste. slowrunner77 (12569) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 15, 2014
"had higher hopes for this one, but this is the kind of beer that’s puts BB in the "eh" category. Aroma is ok, but a little too understated. Body is nice, but nothing special. Flavor is a little unbalanced, leaning way more towards the bitter and little citrusy or floral hops in there. Not enough malt either. All said and done, it was still an IPA, but a below average one."

Dark Golden pour nice dense white head golden lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and a touch of caramel AMD a hint of nuttiness. Avg palate. Flavor followed aroma pretty clear a light bitterness in the finish. Pretty good. oRos (1675) - sacramento, California, USA - AUG 19, 2013
On tap at brew brothers in Reno. Taste is nutty with a weird aftertaste. Color is on the amber side. Cybercat (6009) - Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Comes out of the tap a hazy dark honey-amber. Got little head, but this apparently was an artifact of the pour. Strong aroma is very hoppy and has a good undertone of grapefruit. Hoppy flavor is somewhat bitter and, like the aroma, has a grapefruit underpinning. Texture has good body and fizz. If not an outstanding IPA, still a worthy one.

On tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy amber pour with an off-white head. Citrus, bitter hops, orange, and lightly bready. Decent. Bif (2306) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - JUL 22, 2010
On Tap- Has a clear Copper color with a decent head that faded fairly quickly with very little lacing. Nice clean grainy aroma with a trace of a citrus-sweetness. Has a mild citrus and hops taste with a so-so bitterness. Fairly medium body & smooth. fairly well balanced but expected a bit more. Decent beer, maybe good for a couple. Considering the brew house is in the middle of the Eldorado Casino, its a nice oasis.
