Poured a cloudy amber color...WOW. Hop smell is huge from the get go..Taste was sweetness immediately followed by hop overkill...I sure wish I could like hops better, but alas, I am not a hop head...Not a favorite of mine...The alcohol did seem very well hidden tho!

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2007 Wow. Bottle. I dont get where all of the highly carbonated reviews come from. My head died off fast and did not bubble long. Very hoppy, but not without a blast of candy coated goodness first. This beer is very sweet off the get go but leaves any hop head happy towards the end of the swallow.

Fresh hop aroma. Slightly sweet with big malty flavor and dark fruits. Huge finish with late aromatic hop flavors.

Pours out a hazy nectarine. Head quickly disapates to a soapy film. Nose- fruity hops- smells promising! Taste- tropical fruit (pineapple, mango, grapefruit). Has quite bitter finish- dry tobacco on finish. Mouthfeel- carbonation is fairly high. This beer becomes slightly astringent and a little boozy as I get into it. Very good beer- not quite up to Hop Slam quality, but worth seeking out.

12oz bottle-pours a big foamy to rocky light tan head and copper/amber color. Aroma is lots of sweet and bitter lemon/citrus hops. Taste starts a dry raw hops then some medium malt starts to come through. Alcohol. The bitter hops stays through the aftertaste. A bit much for me. Occasional. OK carbonation.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Bottle; Poured a brownish orange; a little murky; with not much off white head. Aroma of caramel malt and citrus hops. Strong pine presence too. Flavor has an initial strong hop presence; Sticky and smooth. Lacks alot of complexity, but there is some. Some caramel malt and grapefruit/citrus. Very good, but not great. Very much like a double IPA

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Poured from Stone Brewery tap with a cloudy orange tinge. Aroma of some malty caramel and very nice hps. Pine with some citrus lemon. Head was white tan. On the palate the brew is smooth and creamy. The flavor has a strong hop characyer along with a little sweet malt. Nice complexity and finish of good duration.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2007 Poured a burnt orange. Aroma of caramel, toffee and piny grapefruit bitter hops. Tastes first of caramel malt sweetness, then pine. Sweetness lingers throught the finish but theres plenty of grapefruit and a good hop flavor, followed by a lasting bitter finish. Good, but not as nicely put together as it could be.

Had this again on its own and I liked much more than the original rating reflects. Great aroma, big sweet malt flavor, and a big fruity flowery and piny hop presence, all combined well. The aftertaste has a bit too much char for my taste. This kinda like Oskar Blues Gordon, but a bit stronger, with a less pleasant finish.

12 oz bottle. Deep copper, with a tight thin head. Bit of a malt and hop aroma, but not too overpowering. Bitter, almost like an IPA, medium heavy body and a bit astringent. This beer is serious and intense, not as refreshing as I had hoped.

Bottled. Poured a tawny, cloudy orange with a tan head. Resin and grapefruit nose. The flavor is citrusy and the finish is tremendously hoppy, with a hint of alcohol. A fine offering from Flying Dog.
