Beer Review 55 // Flying Dog Easy IPA

New brewery hitting the blog! This time I'm checking out Flying Dog from Maryland. Picked up a pack of these from my last trip down to the states. It was the can art that attracted me to them, with the creepy Moomin style creature. Let's see how it goes.

Details

Name: Easy IPA
Style: Session IPA
Brewery: Flying Dog Brewery
Country: Maryland, USA.
Price: $2.50 USA - 12oz Can
ABV: 4.7%

Commercial Fluff:
Aromas of grapefruit and subtle spice meld into lemon and pine hop notes balanced with crisp cracker malt. Pair this with tailgates, mowing the lawn, and anything else that calls for a light, yet flavorful, beer.

Own Opinion

Sight: Light hazy golden yellow, tidy white head. Classic looking IPA.
Aroma: Straight off I get a lemon citrus and peach aroma, which soon makes way to a slight malty biscuit hit.
Taste: Pretty standard. Easy to drink with a gentle hop profile. Finishes with a moderate bitterness. Very easy to finish a six pack.
Would I buy it again? Most likely not. It was fun to try and I did finish the pack. The problem is there are better versions of this style out there. This is a great intro beer for the less experienced.

As always let me know your thoughts. I love getting the feedback.
