I have never been a fan of Flying Dog beers – they make good beer, but it’s not my style and has always seemed too weak. The beer guy at my local Whole Foods recommended this one and I thought “OK, why not?” What a shock when I opened this up and got the fruity hop, citrusy smell. Then the taste! The real hop taste knocks your block off with a flavor of bitter, resin hop overload - the flavor dissipates a bit too quickly and the bitterness lingers a bit too long (wish it were the opposite), but this is a good beer. Lots of Belgian style apple pie type flavor with spice and sweetness - but not overload. I had to look at the label again to make sure this was a Flying Dog beer? Yes, it was – what a pleasant surprise.
