Snake Dog IPA

Nice looking pour, with a good head and some nice lacing. Golden orange color, but really one of the lighter colored American IPA’s that I have seen.

Very light and easy drinking hop bitterness in the taste and the aroma. Not at all heavy, which is both a good and bad thing. It makes the beer very drinkable, but it lacks the hop punch of a typical American micro IPA. For that reason, added to the Flying Dog artwork, availability, price and marketing, you have a great crossover beer. For the same reason I suspect that this will disappoint many BA’s, and certainly this is not a typical hoppy, American IPA.

Lingering hop bitterness in the finish, but this is slightly soapy and only mildly citrus grapefruit in taste.

I enjoyed this, but it is a long way from the typical American IPA style.
