55 Industrial Park Road

Ponderay, ID
Est. 2005 

Brain Damage Quotient = 6.9 % ABV

Postmortem Brew Review
Deep mahogany red on the pour. (Pour slowly/carefully)
Citrus and piney with hints of roasted malt and even less of coffee.

Billowy tan 
head, easily three fingers high.
Great amount of draped lacing.
Hops that last throughout the session balanced nicely with a rich malty presence.
Medium to full bodied.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Sixty nine IBU's go into the makeup of this Black IPA, (a.k.a. Cascadian Black Ale). A malty backbone bridges the firmament to all those hops and imparts the rich inky blackness of color. This style has come from out of the northwest and is in fast company with The Reaper. I really do enjoy a well done Black IPA.

On the whimsical side, Laughing Dog has taken some poetic license to tweak the words of "Godzilla" from Blue Oyster Cult.

With a purposeful growl and a terrible sound
He pulls the rack of kegs all down
He picks up a bottle and he throws it back down
As he walks through the kegs toward the center of town
Oh no, they say he's got to go
Go, go Dogzilla!

Humorous and true to the name Laughing Dog. If you find some, get some.
