Ravens Brewing Co. – Flying Dutchman North East IPA Review

Ravens Brewing Co. Flying Dutchman North East IPA BottleRavens Brewing Company in Abbotsford released their Flying Dutchman North East IPA in early October.  The beer pours a cloudy golden orange with three fingers of off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing behind in the glass.  The aroma is of mango, passion fruit, tangerine, and apricot, with a subtle note of melon.  In the mouth the Flying Dutchman offers flavours of stone fruit, lychee, tropical fruit, some light caramel, with a light lemon note.  This beer has a surprisingly light mouthfeel with a lingering bitterness that is welcome, although uncharacteristic of the style.

Alcohol – 6.8%
