COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flying Dog Brewery will celebrate its 20th Anniversary a few months early on Friday, September 25th (the brewery turns 20 next year). The brewery will be sampling the new Raging Bitch Belgian-style India Pale Ale at the Flying dog Brats And Gonzo party in Denver that day as part of the Great American Beer Fest happening that week (unscramble the FBAG acronym to get GABF). More info about the fest can be found on the official Flying Dog blog. The beer also appeared on draft at this past weekends Gonzofest party. Al from Hop Talk was in attendance and reported on his blog, I understand its made from an augmented Snake Dog wort with an exclusive Belgian yeast strain (called Diablo) and dry-hopped with a load of Amarillo hops. Theyre calling it a Belgian IPA. It was really good. It had that hop bite from a big, bad American IPA with the banana and bubblegum from the Belgian yeast. Some may remember a beer called, Raging Bitch Birch Beer, that Flying Dog introduced on April 1st. Whereas that low-gravity series beer was a joke, this beer is anything but at 8% ABV (60 IBU). Propaganda from the label: Two inflammatory wordsone wild drink. Nectar imprisoned in a bottle. Let it out. It is cruel to keep a wild animal locked up. Uncap it. Release itstand back! Wallow in its golden glow in a glass beneath a white foaming head. Remember, enjoying a RAGING BITCH, unleashed, untamed, unbridled and in heat is pure GONZO!! It has taken 20 years to get from there to here. Enjoy! Ralph Steadman

Bottle 33cl, a clear golden amber beer with good head. Nose is very hopy on resin and citrus. Aroma is honey and resin like, not too sweet a very nice ipa with long bitterness on aftertaste, very easy drinkable, some hay notes and fruity ginger hints. Nice, one more ....

MarkBarnes (415) - Waterville, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2011
July 12, 2011; 12 oz. bottle. Viewed the label with some skepticism, but this is a surprisingly hefty & tasty mash-up of Belgian and India Pale Ales. Sampled this at a party, and am looking forward to bringing some home to rate at my leisure.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Poured a clear medium orange color. The head was two fingers high with a lasting off white head. Smelled of orange marmalade, flower blossom, clove, baking spices, and distinct lemon/lime. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with mild bitterness and a light warming alcohol effect that imparted a somewhat astringent perfumy note. I tasted baking spices, grapefruit, clove, and pale malt.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2011
Light orange colored with little yellow head. Rich peachy aroma with sweet banana, caramel, and grassy, flowery hops. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is also grassy with nice peach tones, some soft yeasty note comes up too. Aftertaste is grassy too, lasting flowers here too.

Cobra (1100) - - JUL 4, 2011
12 oz. longneck brown bottle. Coded under UPC label of 324A11. Im guessing this was bottled on March 24, 2011. Anyway, it poured out a deep amber / copper color, with a foamy white head. Aromas right off the bat are of funky Belgian yeast. Some background hop aromas, but nothing worth writing home about. Funky barnyard, some horse blanket, and burnt sugar flavors. Alcohol is well hidden amongst the funkiness. Medium mouthfeel, slightly slick on the tongue. Finished slightly barnyardish. Decent effort overall.

Benzai (15346) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2011
A nice beer from Flying Dog. Light hints of grapefruit in the smell and taste, and lovely bitterness. Full body, good carbonation. Sure I will drink this again.

Kristall-Knig (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2011
Geruch sehr zitrusbehaftet hopfig. Antrunk slich, dann bergehend in Maracujatne. Abgangs verblat das sehr dominante Maracujaaroma etwas und macht Ananasnoten Platz. Moderat bitter ablaufend. Erstaunlich gutes Bier dieser Brauerei. Sehr aromatisch - gut.Test vom 1.7.2010

LomYst (879) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2011
very nice hoppy, fruity aroma containing hints of pineapple and citrus....taste is fat and bitter and extremly hop infested... i might be a bit drunk right now, but i can always recognize a great double IPA
