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

Pours a shade of copper with a relatively small of white head. Smell is citrus like fruits with some spice notes. Taste is interesting, has a bit of complexity and then gets shot down by a booze kick. Almost too much going on for my liking, and then I dont like how it finishes for an IPA. Still not terrible, however not something Id likely get again.

Whiskey copper color in the glass. Aroma of some honeydew, bananas, dried cherries and alcohol. Fruity alcohol flavors: dried fruit, some clove and toasty malt trailing notes. Overall, its very good. Assertive yet flavorful. Good!

dragonlady1010 (30) - Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Orange gold with a light haze. Low off-white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is dominated by resiny and citrusy hops but also has notes of banana, clove, nutmeg and a hint of bread. Well-balanced flavor with that definite Belgian character...hoppy, fruity, caramelly, yeasty, sweet with a drier finish. Nice carbonation. The hoppiness lingers on long after the bitch is gone.

Nagyon stt rnyalat barns vrses szn-hasonlt a whiskyre- kzepes mretű piszkosfehr habkoronval. Az illata nagyon sszetett s furcsa. Virgos-citrusos illatfelhő, ami sokkszerűen csap meg, de aztn bejn valami erős prklt, fsts illat, nagyon klns, jabb prhuzam a whiskyvel? Az ze fantasztikus, van benne minden: citrusflk grapfruit-tal s naranccsal az len, bodza, s őszi gymlcsk, meg cspp karamells desks z. Ez mr egy keserűbb trtnet, rendesen kiszrt mindent, amit r. Ennek ellenre nagyon lehet inni, ktelező hzi feladat mindenkinek!

Draft in Pubhub Katy Tx. Initially full-on grapefruit zest refreshment. Then super mouthfeel and fruity roundness. Clear bright dark amber. Superb example of this fusion of beer cultures.

boto (2178) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - DEC 6, 2010
12oz. bottle: This one pours an orangish-golden color. There was a small off white head on it that doesnt linger long. Nice big hop nose. Pine, citrus and maybe even a touch of pineapple mixed together. Smells like some Belgian spices and breadiness in there also. The taste is good. There is a nice hop bite to the beer (mainly citrus), with a decent malt body behind it. Get some of the Belgian notes in the peppery spices and a touch of breadiness to it.
