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 weekend’s Gonzofest party. Al from Hop Talk was in attendance and reported on his blog, “I understand it’s made from an augmented Snake Dog wort with an exclusive Belgian yeast strain (called Diablo) and dry-hopped with a load of Amarillo hops. They’re 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 words…one wild drink. Nectar imprisoned in a bottle. Let it out. It is cruel to keep a wild animal locked up. Uncap it. Release it…stand 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

Really like belguims and Ipas, thought it would be a match made in heaven. Too much asprin in the flavor. The belguim aspects did not come across great. Good beer just not as good as I was hoping from ratings and description.

Aroma is complex: strawberry but also carrot and cucumber. Same on the taste. Mindbogling are the amount of little flavors. Bitterness is just enough. Special beer on tap at Hesp.

Darker golden color with hint of carbonation, thin head. Candi sugar sweet with hint of spice in the aroma. Spicy with dry hop flavor. Carbonation enhances the bite. Primarily an IPA but hints of Belgian character do come through in appropriate ways. Decent but would prefer a bit less hop profile.

3.9
TET (3031) - 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 it’s 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. I’d like a little more yeasty, fruity, funky out of this raging bitch.

3.5

UPDATED: APR 21, 2013 Aroma - floral, herbs, citrus, hops Appearance - clear red-orange Taste - Sweet, fruity with a slight bitter aftertaste Palate - oily feel, light body, average carbonation, bitter finish

Bottle Excellent tasting beer. Still not big on Belgian style beers but this one is helping me grow my world of beer. Will repeat but not going to run back for any just yet. =)
