Flying Dog Sriracha Pale Ale (Brewhouse Rarities)

Posted: November 17, 2015 in Chile Beer, Flying Dog Brewery, Reviews

The other half and I are watching “The Real Housewives Of New Jersey” tonight. It’s the episode about Teresa being in prison. I don’t know why I enjoy reality television so much, but it’s a good distraction from a rough day at work. Awhile back, Val brought me a six-pack of this and I had really high hopes for it, although it seemed a bit gimmicky to me.

ABV: 5.5%

Style: Chile Beer

Trivia: The website suggests pairing this with Thai food.

Random: The reunion shows are the best. There’s always some sort of drama on them.

When I poured this beer into the bottle, it came out with a two finger, white head that dissipated quickly. It left no lacing on the glass, but it left an eighth of a finger of crown. The body was a clear, light orange color with high carbonation visible. The nose had grapefruit pith with light chili pepper. The taste started with grapefruit and quickly went into earthy, spicy chili peppers. Right after that note came through, it went into sweet, toasted malt. It made the end spice not very hot and the beer not very effective. It had a medium thick body with moderate carbonation. The finish was quick with the sweet malt and chili pepper. This was $1.75 for the bottle, which broke down to $.15 per ounce. This beer was a slight disappointment and one that I wouldn’t rush back to have. I think the concept was good, but the execution could have been better.
