Anyway, moving on to the beer. Unlike the original K9 movie, which was fun and harmless, the K-9 Cruiser is a little boring and; well I suppose not harmless at 7.4%. The aroma is full of caramel malt, orange and a sort of effervescent fizz. On tasting, the orange rears it's head in the form of bitter orange pith. In fact it's extremely bitter all around and begs the question, is this really only 30IBU? That's 7 less than bog standard Sierra Nevada pale ale and this seems far more intense. Overall the bitter orange drowns out anything else that might be interesting in the beer. My advice, forget the seasonal and pick up one of the many other excellent Flying Dog beers available.
