ChrisPants' rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Pours deep orange, nearing brown. Head starts at 1/2 inch and stays to play, with a touch of lacing down the glass. Grapefruit, sour cherry, and a snit of honey. Body is a bit more mobile than I’d like to see, but is definitely not too thin. Finishes triumphantly in an eclectic celebration of the hop. Why is this ranked so low in the style percentage? Maybe I have a great batch here. I’m liking it.

Lovely label. Good beer. Ipa like an an ipa should be. Mouthfeel could be better. Aftertaste a bit too alcoholic imo.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours a copper color with an off-white head. Aromas of floral hops, citrus and some malt. Taste is fairly well-balanced if not boring. British style IPA for sure.

Obviously been a minute, but I don’t remember this being so different than the newer version, so here’s the same rating: Well balanced well hopped single IPA. Nothing special here, just a good drinking brew, especially in summer!

This rating is a memory of the old brew. I’ve always been a fan of Flying Dog (and have also long been a fan of IPAs) and remember being very excited to try this years ago. The result was not what I had expected and was a huge disappointment. Having had the newer brew on numerous occasions I have to say it is much more like what I expected out of a flying dog IPA when I first had this a long time ago.

Koelschtrinker (21844) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Sehr hopfig-trockener Geruch, zudem aromatisch und etwas karamellig. Der Antrunk ist vom amerikanischem Hopfen geprägt, trocken, aromatisch. Der würzige Hopfen wird extrem süß und wirkt deutlich übertrieben, auch im Abgang ist der volle Hopfen zu deutlich präsent und unterdrückt andere Aromen weitgehend. Lecker, aber nicht so gut dosiert.
Test vom 27.3.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,11,11,12,8,12 - 11,20
