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 golden with a big white head. Smells hoppy, spicey, and big belgian yeast. Smooth feel, hops balance well with the belgian yeast. Grassy, smooth, and a good deal of body.

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.

Amber in colour, decent sized head and lacing. Aroma is typical tropical mangoes, pine and grassy hops similar to most IPAs. Taste is of big juicy mangoes, finish is a malty caramel which makes it slightly unique. Gave me a bit of a sore head in the morning. Price Paid: 1.50 (out of date).

355ml bottle @ 8.3% from whole foods market. Pours dark Amber with off-White medium head. (Drinking out of an un-suitable glass). Harsh taste, very bitter. full body. long finish. A very interesting drink, probably shouldnt have drank on an empty stomach.

Pours a nice golden color with fine head. Aromatics of light hops and banana, apple, citrus notes with some sourness detected (not bad). A somewhat flat palate with a slightly bitter or lambic finish but a full mouth feel. I find it pretty appealing.
