Woho! my first thread :D and what better topic than one of my passions in life, beer.
The reason for this thread is simple, I want to discover new and exiting brews I havn't had the pleasure to taste yet
So please include where it is from etc. so there is a possibility of getting to sample it someday (either by import or visiting the country)
rules: 1 or 2 beers (2 if it is impossible to decide, try to keep it to one).
(feel free to use it as a template or make your own)
Beer: Raging Bitch
Brewery: Flying Dog Brewery
Origin Country: United States - Maryland
Type: Belgian style - India Pale Ale
IBU (if applicable): 60
Everything below is biased and my opinion, not facts
Why I like it:
First of all, Flying dog is a hell of a brewery (don't think they have a brew I dislike yet).
But this beer is their crown jewel if you are fond if IPA's
The beer is very bitter so it takes some getting used to (do not drink this if you are planning to drink a lager afterwards, it will probably taste like water)
but it has a very nice fruity flavour that at first just exlpodes in your mouth, then it softly just lingers. It is a beer you drink for a good 20-30min to savour the moment.
Best glass to drink it from is a Sniffer glass, pictured below with the bottle.
In Sweden this is a fairly common beer to find in well-stocked pubs that focus on quality beer, examples are (in Stockholm):
Man in the moon Bar (tegnergatan), Monks (Gamla stan & Wallingatan) & The Bishops Arms (franchise, international)
Hope that this tread will be interesting for some of you out there.
And remember, there is no such thing as bad beer, just opinions.
