DSC_7104Brewery: Laughing Dog Brewing

ABV: unknown (please add a comment if you know!)

Review: This is a curious beer. I found it in the bargain basket in my local supermarket, priced at $1.00. With no pre-conceptions or notions, I was firstly struck by the dense, cloudy body, topped by a substantial head. At first taste, it’s clear that this IPA is in the same league as many of its Northwest compatriots – very hoppy, strong malt flavors and traces of caramel. The aftertaste is rich, sticky and strongly hopped. Without further bottles to check, my judgment is still a preliminary one. While tasting, I had no idea of the ABV, but guessed it was north of 5%. A complex, curious brew worth a taste. Whenever I find more than a single bottle, I’ll give it a more lengthy tasting. 

Food pairing: This IPA would partner very well with seafood or spicy food.
