UPDATED: AUG 3, 2007 Bottle #3432. Poured a nice amber color with a medium foamy head. Some suspended particles. The aroma was a nice citrus and spicy hop scent with some malt in the background. Wow, thats strong! Great hop presence (spicy and citrus), with a solid malty caramel backbone. Significant alcohol presence and very flavorful overall. Bright and sweet as it warms. Body was slick and warm medium overall. These guys made a really fine 2IPA. Too bad its an anniversary brew. Id buy it all the time.

The only addition or change I would make from the 12 oz bottle addition is that the hop flavor is much more to the pine/spruce side of things as opposed to my initial comments. Same score.

(On bottle at RBESG 2005)Say the name three time fast; I dare you.Warm orange colour with a white head. Pretty hoppy, yes, but with a lot of sugar too, almost too much for the hops to handle. Syruppy mouthfill, burning finish of the hops, way too much for me. When the taste butts recovered, they detected some burnt abricot and almond too.

madsberg (11634) - Sborg, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2005
Bottled @ RBESG2005: Golden coloured. Unclear. Off white head. Sweet and marcipany aroma. Herbal and hoppy. Quite delicous. Flavour is hoppy, herbal and somewhat floral. Sweetness and fruit balance the hops quite well. Ends on a caramelly bitterness. Is very smooth and surprisingly easy to drink. Really good one.

Crockett (1112) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2005
I dont know what it is about these strong Pale ales that I love. Pours clear sticky copper with a medium sized tan/beige head. Huge grapefruit, caramel and chewy malt nose. Mouthfeel like a thick rich barleywine. Cotton candy, citrus, butter. Very smooth. Caramel, marshmallow. Bitters are well concealed behind the sweet toasted malts. Fisish is rich soft and warming with a tinge of hop/alcohol heat. Very nice.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2005
RBSG 05 - strong grassy aroma, with some hints of malts in the background. the pour was a caramel brown, clear, and a nice white head that laced down the sides of the glass. a sweet grassy, pine flavor starts off backed up by a caramel malt center that balances things very evenly. even the aftertaste was well blended and didnt overwhelm with bitterness or sweetness. a very enjoyable brew, and no hint at all of the abv.

RBSG 05. This is one of Flying Dog’s best along with Gonzo. Medium amber with a nice sticky white head and good lace. Aroma is loaded with citrus and piney hops and backed by a fair amount of sweet caramel malts. The flavor is dominated by hops and backed by enough malt that it makes the flavor very resiny with sticky piney hops, instead of just being a hop tea. Big mouthfeel, from all the malt. As it warms it becomes a bit too thick and is almost medicinal in the taste.
