Flying Dog Brewery put out the new Raging Bitch Belgian-style India Pale Ale at the Flying dog Brats And Gonzo party in Denver in September. Made from an augmented Snake Dog wort with an exclusive Belgian yeast strain (called Diablo) and dry-hopped with a load of Amarillo hops, they’ve called it a Belgian IPA. Reviews have been good. It’s got a hop bite from a big, bad American IPA with the banana and bubblegum from the Belgian yeast.
Some may remember a beer called Raging Bitch Birch Beer that Flying Dog introduced earlier in the year. This beer is is not like the former lightweight and comes in at 8% ABV (60 IBU). This is a year-rounder worth trying. I saw it in action at an even last weekend and all I can say is hold it proudly and stand your ground. It’s a fine beer and generally available.
