We’ve had mixed experiences with Flying Dog brews here at The Brewclub, Scott tried a few between 2009 and 2012 but wasn’t overly impressed. My only experience to date was ‘International Arms Race’ – a battle with Brewdog to brew a hop free IPA and that too failed to impress.
So I encountered this brew with some trepidation.
It pours very pale gold, with a thin white head that laces as it rapidly fades.
There’s not too much nose to speak of, some citrus, but it’s mostly bready.
The flavour is metallic, citrus, piney… hints of grapefruit and black pepper, it could possibly make a good session IPA on a summer’s day.
All in all I found this to a pleasant enough quaffing brew, but pretty insubstantial, I’m sure I’ll find a Flying Dog brew that floats my boat one day, but this isn’t it.
