A=Light golden-copper with medium head, leaving great lacing which sticks to the glass a good while.
S&T=More on the malty side. I notice a lot of sweet malt/barley, and less hops. Hops are there, just more restrained for me. Tasty, though not an ideal IPA.
M=Medium, with average carbonation.
Very good, an interesting new style for me. Though I prefer hoppier, this is a nice change. Will have again sometime. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours golden with white head. Nose has spicy phenolic yeast with florals bananas and pear. Flavors are spicy, floral, honeydew, and grass. Long soft bitterness. Good clean fermentation. Hops, yeast, and well attenuation all working nicely here. Why am I just know finding out about this beer? Empalmado24 (5) - USA - JAN 5, 2011 does not count
This is the first IPA I have enjoyed. That makes me happy. You can really smell the hops on this one but it doesn’t taste like your chewing on pine cones. Very nice balance Flying Dog. I appreaciate your work. Woot! Woot! bkurtz (1093) - MOROCCO - JAN 5, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Poured a clear amber/golden with a smallish white head. It has that IPA hoppiness right away and then some grassy, fruit notes. Great Beer. joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Aroma of yeast and resins, and underlying grassy hops. Cloudy clay orange color, almost white creamy head, and lots of soapy lacing. Taste is nicely balanced, and definitely has the belgian beer character it claims. Spicy hops and dark malt with a spicy finish.

Aroma: nuts, chocolate, herbs, and fruits. Strong fragrances, intensive presence of hops in it. Taste is strong with slight bitterness. badwhale (420) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Bottle to glass mug. Pours a yellow / copper hue. Slightly cloudy. Sparse head, with decent lacing. Smells of apples, or olives. Has a nice hop bite to it, floral notes and some citrus, like grapefruit. Very nice. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2010
Tap at Max’s Baltimore. Dark amber with no head. Looks plain but the nose attracts attention; caramel and spiced hops scent is awesome. Flavour is freaky Belgian. Thin but cool cinamon, caramel and hops with a hint of Belgian flavour. Tastes like candy!! BlackEyePA (573) - USA - DEC 29, 2010
Great beer! Right on point. I was very impressed and loved it all the way through. The IPA style was really working magic and I was suckered in and now Im a believer in this one. The palate is saturated but in a great way if u are an IPA hoppy lover. Spicy, hoppy, floral, spice and back of sweet candy, just a hint. Delicious, the color was awesome, a little cloudy orange-brown-gold. Smell was great, bread, hop, yum. Overall, would like to have a couple of these, really nice. madsberg (11770) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2010
