Has a really strong citrusy aroma. Taste is dominated by alcohol though. I mediocre at best strong ale. not a good blend of malt and hops

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2007 On tap at Ortinos Northside. Pours a thick orange brown, looked like apple cider with a small off white head that left great lacing. Aroma is slightly sour up front. Some citrus and almost belgian type spices and alcohol. Flavor is where the hops come in. Hops were slightly dry hopped. Grapefruit and other citrus. 7-4-7-4-16 Re-rate from 12 oz bottle in 2007. Pours a hazy orange amber with a foamy off white rocky/lacing head. Aroma of sweet candy citrus, light pine, caramel malt and some grapefruit. Flavors of the same a nice mix of candy sweet caramel malts with tons of hop flavor. Very well done DIPA...glad to see this one available in 12 oz bottles now. Hop bitterness and malt sweetness are balanced...but the bitterness that lingers in this one is really nice.

Thanks to beeryum for this beer.

Mmm... double pale ales. Always classifed as "American Strong Ales", but in my book they stand on their own. Popped the cork on this one and knew immediately from the fresh bitter grapefruit and sugar candy aroma that wafted up my nose that this was going to be a good experience. Poured an effervescent dark amber with a large creamy off-white haed. Taste is grapefruit and grass hops with a huge malt backbone.. sticky and sweet. Warming alcohol teases the palate and warms all the way down. Soft carbonation on this gives it a creamy mouthfeel. Clean and crisp grapefruit belches allow me to relive the experience time and time again after Ive set down the glass. Ok, so maybe Im a sucker for loads of hops in a big beer, but I dont care... I love this. Wow, Flying Dog can brew good beer... who knew?

Sampled at RBESG 2005.
A hazy dark orange beer with a thick off-white head. Typical American IPA aroma, bitter hoppy and nutty with tones of yeast and a touch of earthly hoppyness. Soft and smooth bitter and biding hoppy flavor with fruit and nut in there as well. A nice and well balanced IIPA, very classic American.

Pour is clear amber with a nice dense tan skin of a head...smell is big pine with some grapefruit along with strong biscuity malt... taste is very sweet with caramel and alcohol along with a warming hop bitterness...finish is sweet but quick...

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2005
Bottle. Very hoppy, as i expect from the style. Full on lychee, grapefruit and pine attack, loads of orange citrus aswell. It came across as a little too sweet and sticky. Loads of sweet hop flavours, too much so i thought. Alittle unbalanced, but undeniably tasty.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Tap. Didnt even get the nose in the glass and you could smell the citrus hopy aroma. Deep amber body color with good off white head and real good lacing. Alcohol seemed to be hidden in this one with a good balance of moderate sweet flavor holding back the hop bite that is trying to break though. Was smooth on the palate and somewhat of a dry aftertaste. Good beer.

Bottle. Copper color. About half a glass of foamy white head. Very malty. Hoppy finish but not overly so. Kind of sweet

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Not as hoppy as I thought it would be, though it still brings a lot to the table in the flavor department. Nice color, with a wafting honey-and-hops aroma. Tastes include pine, grass, cookie, caramel, honey, and a little bit of bubblegum. A very sticky, thick mouthfel, that truly coats your mouth. Aftertaste is dry and hoppy.

Red orange color with a small offwhite head. Honey, caramel, some vinous notes, and a piney, grassy Cascade family hop aroma. Orange peel, molasses, and an artifical chemical fruit taste. Alcohol heat and sour fruit in the finish. Mouthfeel is heavy and sticky.
