A recent gift from my father after his trip to Cinnci. Actually, his entire trunk was full of beer- six six packs! Thanks dad, this is going to be a busy blog month.
I have to say this is much better than the other ales I have tried from Flying Dog. This is a very 'sticky' IPA with a good amount of sweet malts that pair with the milder hops fairly well. Not one of those extreme IPAs but there is nothing wrong with that when the beer is as flavorful as this one is. I can see myself buying quite a few of these in the future.
I found myself going for my 'non blog' Snake Dog IPAs whenever I was heading to the fridge even with all the selection I had. I think that is a pretty strong endorsement right there.
