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 weekend’s Gonzofest party. Al from Hop Talk was in attendance and reported on his blog, “I understand it’s made from an augmented Snake Dog wort with an exclusive Belgian yeast strain (called Diablo) and dry-hopped with a load of Amarillo hops. They’re 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 words…one wild drink. Nectar imprisoned in a bottle. Let it out. It is cruel to keep a wild animal locked up. Uncap it. Release it…stand 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

This is one of the best IPA’s Ive ever tried. It is a heavier bodied IPA than most American style IPA’s, so don’t expect it to be a thirst quencher. But it has both a heavy hop presence and a nice wild Belgian yeast flavour that somehow pairs perfectly. An intense brew, high alcohol, strong flavour, medium-full bodied. The yeasty flavour adds a depth of flavour not found in many IPA’s, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to try such a wonderful brew.

Clear orange with a huge white head. Smells of fruity hops and pine needles with notes of yeast. Fruity flavour with pine needles with notes of spices and yeast.

Not the best Belgian style IPA. Tastes alright but the after taste is kinda overwhelming after one bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Klart, gyllent med fint skum. Ananas, sitrus, høy og litt funk i duften. Avstemt bitterhet i smaken sammen med noe steinfrukt.

brandy cools (27) - antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2017 the aroma is sweetish fruity with a hint of yeast. it's a golden pretty clear brew with a head that rather quickly dissapears. that taste starts out pretty caramel-like sweet but turns to a longlasting bitternes quickly. it has a full body, a great balance and a soft carbonation. All these things combine to a really good beer, not great but really good. Best new try in a long while.

A beautifully balanced full bodied beer. The taste, look and head all show you this is a serious beer.

evannell (1377) - Kraków, POLAND - OCT 4, 2017
Opalizująca pomarańcza, wpadająca w bursztyn. Aromat - karmel, grejpfrut, mango. Pewnie nie domyśliłbym się, że są tu belgijskie drożdże. W smaku już bardziej, coś tam wychodzi. Ale głównie jest tu karmel, skontrowany pokaźną goryczką. Potrzebuję wypić jeszcze jedno, bo jest coś, czego nie umiałem określić. A potem to już było następne piwo.
