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

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2010
$8.99/6 pack. Central Market. San Antonio, TX. A very clear golden brown with an almost red hue to and a small head. The aroma has a nice fruitiness to it and that distinct Belgian yeast character. A pleasurable and very nice aroma. The hops mix very well with the yeast. The taste is again fruity at first then the yeast contributes banana, pepper, and other spice that I cant finger. The yeast also seems to add bitterness along with the hops. You know I was real surprised with this one and kind of changed my opinion of Flying Dog. Personally I think this is the best "Belgian IPA" I have tried.

Clear, light copper colour, with good white head. Cool gonzo artwork on the bottle. Fruity, hoppy aroma. Taste is initially sweet, then hop bitterness overtakes. Feels light (non-viscous) in the mouth with nice hop flavour. Very well balanced for 60 IBUs. My kind of IPA.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2010
hazy orange-tea color, thin white head with large bubbles and light lacing. Nose of honeycomb, pepper, and grass. Lightly floral Flavor of orange and tea, a bit medicinal with warmth. Thin, bubbly body. never really comes together, reminiscent of Weyerbacher.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2014 Sweet brown sugar aroma, it makes me remember Lagunitas Brown Sugga Brew, purs golden, taste is similar to bown shugga, bittersweet, delicious, medium boddy.

the only other beer ive had that claims this category would be hop devil, another wierd beer. this beer tatses like....well, read the description. thats a good place to start. i also detect a peppery spiciness. the banana and bubble gum are there. faint. the hoppiness will bring happyness but its not really over the top hoppy. for less than 10 bucks you get pretty messed up and you get original steadman artwork so BUY THIS BEER!

BeerMePodcast (96) - Palm Desert, California, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Medium head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is orange, some lemon, banana, bubblegum. Great estery, fruity flavor with a solid, but not long-lasting bitterness. Some definite alcohol warmness but just the right amount. Somewhat crisp but lingers on the tongue a little. This is my first Flying Dog and I am very impressed.

weitz15 (576) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Dark, hazy yellow pour with a cream head. This is one of those beers that doesnt excel in any one area, but really jumps out with its novelty. Creamy fruity aroma. Creamy, hoppy flavor. Very unique.

Ron (3888) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Aroma is a mix of yeast and hops with citrus and caramel. Pours amber with foamy head. flavor is sweet for an ipa, but floral and fruity hops are there. Medium body, dry with long bittersweet finish.
