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

TET (2929) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2011 Copperbrown beer with a medium and beige head. Complex and interesting aroma, fruits, oranges, spicyness, yeast, peaches grapefruits and some flowers. Almost full bodied, nice carbonation and nice to drink. Taste is strong, resinous, pine needles, spicyness, fruits, pine needles and peppers. Lots of bitterness and its resinous in the beginning and then turns into peppery, long and dry end. As named, quite feisty beer, complex and great aroma, taste is more regular, that is more spicy and tight; nice belgian IPA, definedly worth to try.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 11, 2011
A lovely breed of translucent orange/amber heels below a light head of white. She smells like a wet bitch: musky orange peels and old cantaloupe with a hint of pine. A medium body of malty pine with hints of friend plantain and pepper. Finish is long and bitter with a lingering of pepper on the tongue. Extremely drinkable for 8.3% but definitely lacking in the Belgian department. Id like a little more yeasty, fruity, funky out of this raging bitch.

spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2011
12 oz. bottle from HyVee Marion Ar: Lots of Belgo banana aroma but nicely complemented by peach and clove notes. Ap: Hazy copper-amber pour with a huge pillowy off-white head atop my tulip. Lovely circles of lace. Damn good looking beer. T: Mild caramelly maltiness. Not hugely hopped for an IPA this big; finish is lightly tannic with nice peach flavors. P: Medium, slightly sticky body. Carbonation is somewhat mild. O: Probably the best Belgo-IPA Ive ever had. Im not usually a fan of Flying Dog, but this is a damn good beer.

Bottle in a trade from paco-- thanks man! I drank this straight from the bottle while landscaping my front yard on the first nice day of spring, so Im guessing it looked nice. Aroma off the neck was full on citrus and pine, very aromatic. Fresh citrus and stone fruit hop character, bitter finish with a peppery dryness. I sucked this back in about 10 minutes. Fantastic.

Beaver (1762) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a clear copper gold with a medium white head that quickly diminishes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is soapy bubblegum with a little spicy hops.

The flavor is floral malts with some earthy yeast, leading to a medium spicy dry bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, I dont really care for Belgian IPAs, but this is one of the better ones Ive had.
