Flying Dog Raging Bitch
Raging Bitch was brewed by Flying Dog to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Flying Dog was brewed as an American I.P.A. with Belgian yeast. This beer checks in at a whopping 8.3% ABV, and 60 IBU's.
Marcus Guiliano of Aroma Thyme Bistro, in Ellenville, NY called me the other day to come in and try this new beer.
Raging Bitch pours a clear, amber color with a thumb width, off white head. The aroma is amazing, with a citrus and pine hop aroma. The body is smooth, hoppy throughout, with pale malt in the middle and grassy notes. The finish leaves a very nice lingering dryness. The beer leaves a decent amount of hanging lace on the glass. Overall, this is just a flat out great beer. It is an A+ beer from the nose to the finish. Well-balanced, gret flavor and really memorable.
