Beer Review | Flying Dog: Snake Dog IPA

Flying Dog: Snake Dog IPA   Rating = 92   Rating = 81

Once again, another out of date IPA. The bottle is dated Sept/6/2012 and it is currently Feb 22th, 2013.  So instead of reviewing it on camera, I'm going to let you know how it holds up over time.

ABV: 7.1%
IBU: 60
Color: Medium Straw Gold
Malts: C-60
Hops: Warrior and Columbus
Bottle Code: Best by code in Julian format. 250A12


A half pinky of a white creamy head formed.


Almost no carbonation.  It's very very light.  In appearance, the beer looks almost flat.


A sort of cardboardy aroma.
A light hop spiciness.
Malt doesn't really come through the other aroma.


This is the first time I've ever experienced the cardboard flavor.  It is stronger in the taste than in the aroma.  I am extremely disappointed.
The beer is almost flat.


I would say that this beer is just old.  It expired in September.  But I had an IPA the other day that was older than this and it was absolutely excellent.  I don't know what the heck is wrong with this beer.
It's pretty gross. Not gross enough to pour out. But pretty close.


Based on the style, I'd give this beer a "D"
