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

john44 (2718) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2017
Draft Half Pint at White Horse American Beer Festival 2010, Parsons Green, London in July 2010 - Orangey-Gold in colour. Very Hoppy; piney resinous hops. Yeasty; Belgian yeast. Fruity; citrus orange, grapefruit and tropical fruits. Very dry finish. Expected aggressive or harsh, but got smooth and well balanced. Fairly easy drinking. Liked this a lot. Lovely IPA! (2010-07)

Bottle - Definitely has that cross style taste. Floral but not over powering with a lingering bitterness on the palate. My palate is honestly confused by this beer. Not a fan of Belgian beer but was hopefully with the IPA mix.

Bottiglia 35cl. Color ambra con poca schiuma bianca. Aroma carico di malto e luppolo. Amara, nonostante faccia pi di 8 gradi, lalcool nascosto e per niente fastidioso. Finale lungo, molto interessante.
