milewide (2168) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2008 Amber color. Medium body. Grapefruit up front with lingering bitterness---which I like. Only the "amber-red" color and name seperate this from a DIPA, IMO. ABV over powers all other flavors.

Bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a medium white head. Aromas included piney hops, citrus, and some malt. I get a little more citrus in the flavor than in the aroma. The malt is present but a bit dominated by the hop bitterness. Finish is dry and bitter. One of the better flying dog brews.

cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Bottle: Pours dark amber in color with a pretty sizeable amount of white head. Smell is very piney and earthy. Taste is pretty similar, piney, earthy, but with some maltiness to it, almost caramel like. This is a pretty good beer overall.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 Pours dark amber forming a medium sized foamy head. Aroma of strong piney hops, malty sugars. Flavor is of strong yummy hops with a particular malty and bitter finish.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Pours copper with thick off-white head. Strong floral hop aroma, a little sweet cotton candy, with a slight alcohol bite. Strong citrus bitterness with a bit of toffee smoothness. Nothing incredibly original, but delicious nonetheless.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2007 12 oz bottle. Just like the original Wild Dog, only repackaged w/ a new name. Very comparable to Gordon. Doughy, malty sweetness w/ an excellent hop nose but huge piney flavor. A really nice brew.

tennisjoel (1418) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Pour is dark red with a generous sized creamy head, which is off white in color. Very nice aroma of citrus and grapefruit, similar to a two hearted or hopslam. The flavor backs it up, as well. Right along the same lines the flavor, and a very nice bitter bite. I also taste almost a skunk like peppery finish, and its a little dry. Im extremely impressed with this beer. One of my favorite strong ales up there with Arrogant Bastard and the like.

First sip conjured visions of tea steeped with a sweaty gym sock, full of bile. Second sip left me shuddering, i cant believe this beer can be this bitter and not be balanced by citricy overtones. Talk about bitter beer face! Beer starts out okay, highly bitter finish lingering like the last partygoer when you want to go to sleep! Do see some positive qualities to this beer, but dont think Ill waste another $6.99.

Had this at the brewery the week after release. This is a well balanced beer, higly complex, and a pleasure.

doormouse (14) - Hastings on Hudson, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Amber color, white billowing head, nice lacing, faint aroma of hops, doughy, sweet smell, faint aroma of hops. Taste is strong and overpowering, very bitter almost sour with flavors of dried hops and pine. Biting aftertaste doesnt know when to quit.
