Beer Review: Flying Dog – Snake Dog


More cunning than a snake in the bush…Snake Dog India Pale Ale is a Colorado-style IPA, power hopped with specialty hops from the Pacific Northwest. This is the brewery’s hop monster, and the citrus fruit aroma will hypnotize the senses of the most hardcore of craft drinkers. 15 Plato, 60 IBU, Crystal Malt, Warrior and Columbus hops, and dry hopped with Columbus.

Flying Dog – Snake Dog


The beer pours with a golden amber colour with creamy off white head. The aroma of summer flowers, pineapple and lemon find their way through the hoppy over tones.  The taste is  tropical fruit with a sweet yet gentle notes of pineapple, mango and reminiscences of other tropical fruits. The finish pleasantly dry, almost sweet and bitter in equal proportions. It is a full bodied IPA that is low in carbonation. There is a medium bitterness as the hop takes hold of your taste buds, with a rather pleasant tangy aftertaste.
