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

Rather interesting IPA that Ive been enjoying off and on for the past few months. Raging Bitch has the best of both worlds; Belgian yeast and Amarillo hops. An interesting hop to match up. This amber bodied IPA delivers full flavor. Flying Dog now an East Coast brewery is producing unique beers.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 23, 2011
Tap at Omaha Jacks. Rating #754. Hazy orangish pour with a nice white head that left some real nice lacing. Nice piney aroma, its what an ipa should smell like. Flavor was real nice, nice bitterness, smooth and pretty delicious. (1670)

williamstome (1809) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 23, 2011
Orange-brown pour, small head. Aroma is sweet fruit citrus hops. Flavor is sweet and hoppy, with a lot of malt to balance it. Crisp.

LoFi (1714) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2011
Bottle. Amber with an off-white head. Aroma: belgian yeast, fruity, nuts or chick peas, alcohol and hints of red wine. Taste: oranges, grapefruit, yeast, bubble gum, some nuts, medium bitter with a slight acidity. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. More Belgian-style than IPA, and not very interesting.

cleverlobo (319) - Connecticut, USA - APR 19, 2011
bottle; clear light orange with moderate white head; aroma-sweet, citrus. As it is sitting out, I cant eventually detect the banana/bubble gum but not sure I could come up with that one without help; taste-moderate sweetness throughout, mild bitterness and carbonation. My first belgian style IPA and I can honestly say I was hoping for more bitterness, but pleasant otherwise.

emarkd (100) - Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small frothy white head. Aroma is nicely complex - citrus, oranges, apricot, banana, bubblegum, a hint of barnyard. Nice. Tastes of grapefruit and orange peel up front with some spicy notes coming in later. A bit sweet, caramel, but not too much. Finish is piney, bitter, and lasts. A touch of alcohol warming in there, too. Good stuff.

fabiomarcio (21) - Sabaudia, ITALY - APR 17, 2011
Bottiglia, Caffetteria Malug - Sabaudia - LT. ambrata, limpida con bella schiuma iniziale compatta che per svanisce subito, grande struttura, porta al naso sentori floreali molto complessi, in bocca asciutta ma lascia un amaro estremamente bilanciato e persistente che non svanisce nemmeno dopo essersi lavati i denti... ottima

stabzmcgee (72) - Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2011
Aroma is floral and fruity almost like bubblegum. Appearance is golden brown with a nice tan white head on pour that dissipates but leaves a slight trace behind. Taste is that of a Belgian yeast that is a banana-bubble gum taste. Palate is a dash of bitterness from hops with a thin but long finish. Slightly fizzy on carbonation. Overall its not my bag but i can appreciate it as a decent Belgian take on an IPA.
