Yeah, they've got a couple of good brews, but I like the Pale Ale the best. Dunno about hopping, but did you notice that the cover art is from Ralph Steadman? He of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and several other of Hunter S. Thompson's books.

There's a large quantity of brews that come out of Colorado that are great. I'm not a big IPA fan but I do enjoy Flying Dog's In-Heat Wheat and their Tire Biter Golden (I think that's the name).

Their Gonzo porter was stellar as well.

We get Flying Dog here as well. I have tried their Amber Lager and it was pretty good. I haven't had a chance to try any of the others yet. I think the label art is pretty cool too.

I've only tried their IPA - I think it's called Snake Dog IPA - and thought it was pretty decent. Gotta dig the artwork for sure

I know it is dry hopped with Cascade in the Pale Ale. It says it right on the web site.

According to this site it's Ralph Steadman, but they do give mention to Hunter S. Thompson being a similar style artist.

For the money, I think their IPA is one of the best available. Their pale is really good, too.

They do have some affiliation with Hunter S. Thompson, too. I don't recall what, exactly, but I believe the owners were friends of his. Hence the "Gonzo" porter.
