Flying Dog Snake Dog IPA ....

Tonight I will try a second beer from Flying Dog Brewery, a Snake Dog IPA.  7.1% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.  The Flying Dog web site shows 60 IBUs.

This beer poured with a medium to large, cream colored head.  The beer color is a lighter golden honey.  For aroma, I get some citrus (orange) and spice.  The citrus in the taste leans more towards grapefruit, as it has that kind of sour bitterness.  There is some malt that cuts into the hops, but the hoppy bitterness dominates.  There is also a little sweetness towards the finish, but it ends dry and with a lingering bitterness on the aftertaste.
