This Dog's a Pussycat

New from Laughing Dog Brewery is their Devil Dog Imperial IPA. Sounds promising, with the use of Columbus, Ahtanum, and Simcoe hops, right? But what's up with them using Munich and Caramel malts? I don't usually review too harshly, if at all, because I am more about promoting craft beers in general. But I don't understand Laughing Dog basically dumbing down the beer with those darker malts. There's a picture of a Yellow Lab on the label. It should at least have been a Chocolate Lab. That picture is misleading, and I want my $11.99 back. Yes, my $11.99. I spent that much when I could have gotten a Maharaja or Marble DIPA for way cheaper and enjoyed them more. Laughing Dog is a good brewery, but I was disappointed by this one.
