is beautifully balanced between the Belgian fruity and citrus hop
characteristics at the relatively high alcohol at 8.3% ABV. Raging
Bitch comes on the heels of Flying Dog being honored as Mid Sized

the brewery's 20th Anniversary and is now available year round.
Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: Pours an amber color with hints of red. 1" white head
with a few large bubbles hanging out at the top. Dissipates to a
thin film with lacing down the glass.
Aroma: Initial floral hop aroma with a yeasty belgian backbone and
finishing of citrus hops. Smells like a wheat beer and IPA mixed
with an orange on top.
Taste: Mostly belgian up front, which is delicious.. finishes with a
hop taste. The yeast / malt provide a strong belgian taste upon
first sip. Nice hop aftertaste provides a clean finish and lingering
Mouthfeel: Medium body. Appropriate carbonation for the style.
Finishes crisp and leaves you wanting more.
Overall: Good beer, great name. Want to see more of this style
across the board. Have been impressed with this brewery. Will never
forget how this helped break the ice with the girlfriends mom by
recommending it to her while out to dinner.
The Flying Dog Story
In 1983, a series of events in the Himalayas involving under
prepared hikers, an unfaithful Sherpa, a scared-shitless donkey, and
quickly consumed contraband led to the creation of the Flying Dog
That's right, philosophy. It wasn't until 1990 that beer came into
From a brewpub in Aspen, Colorado to a full-fledged Denver brewery,
and then to a state-of-the-art brewing facility in Frederick,
Maryland, Flying Dog stands for not only extraordinary beer, but
also for standing tall, doing great things, and not letting anyone
make you eat shit.
For the past 20 years, we’ve done just that. We produce world-class
craft beers and continue to push the envelope with experimental
brews and limited-edition one-offs. All the while, we continuously
pay homage to our Gonzo Godfathers – George Stranahan, Hunter S.
Thompson, and Ralph Steadman.
Most importantly, we have a lot of fun doing it. And we never take
ourselves too seriously.
