We think the founding fathers had Raging Bitch in mind when they penned the First Amendment way back in 1789. Over 200 years later our freedom of speech is still being challenged–and where there is smoke, there is likely fire. Stand for something . Make an empact. That’s Gonzo, and that’s Flying Dog.

Raging Bitch Homepage Headline
Raging Bitch Character
“Two inflammatory words… one wild drink. Nectar imprisoned in a bottle. Let it out. It is cruel to keep a wild animal locked up. Uncap it. Release it….stand back!! Wallow in its golden glow in a glass beneath a white foaming head. Remember, enjoying a RAGING BITCH  unleashed, untamed, unbridled- and in heat- is pure GONZO!! It has taken 20 years to get from there to here. Enjoy!”
 
BEER LOVER’S REVIEW:Poured into a NB globe, clear copper. Smooth pour nets a two finger white head that settles slowly into a nice layer and leaves spotty lacing on the glass.

Tangerine, other citrus and pine backing from the hops. Yeast adds notes of clove, white pepper and orange peel. A little funky and sweet, taffy come to mind. Malt profile is a little thin and grainy but allows the spices and yeast to shine through before the hops arrive. Cloves, tangerine peel, and some banana all surface before a cleansing bitter finish supplied by piney and lightly citrus hops. The after taste is lingering bitterness and slightly tart. Bright and stinging carbonation, perhaps a little overdone. Malt bill makes this seem slightly thin on the body through out the drink and alcohol rears it’s head in a few spots. I wish this could finish a bit more bitter and dry and less fruity and tart.

Well this was quite a nice introduction to the style in my opinion witbeer Belgian spices with IPA bitterness and hops make for a very refreshing combination. I think I would prefer this over a saison or witbeer in the summer, just so I could get my hop kick. Filtration helped this beer achieve great bold flavor but lacks in the mouthfeel a bit.
