Bottle. Nice hoppy, yet balanced flavor. Nice bitterness. Plus the Ralph Steadman art is great.

Rich amber color, with a head that left the scene rather quickly. Tiny lace. Nice, hoppy aroma, but it does not overwhelm that sense like so many other ales I’ve had. The flavor can be described about the same way. Malts play a definite role in helping to tame the hops. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Very drinkable beer, and I believe it would compliment a lot of lighter dishes.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 Bright reddish-amber color. Not much head, though this could have been due more to the pour than the beer. Malty, soapy aroma. Bitter, hoppy, soapy flavor with a malty, metallic aftertaste. Not my style...didn’t like this one much.

This ale has a good bitter and crisp chop to it. I would describe the hoppiness as light yet pepperry; they seem to deliver a decent deal of bitterness and overall flavor. Relatively speaking however, compared to other more full-bodied pales, this remains very crisp with a short-lived palate that lives more in the nose aferwards than on the tongue. It is a refreshing, aromatic and effervescent pale ale, just a notch below the top shelf.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 OK, so what do you think of when you hear doggie style? Try punchen that into your google video search and see what happens in the cesspool. Typical aroma of flying dog, slightly fruity. Transparent but ever so slightly hazy. If you didn’t look closely you may not notice. Similar flavor of FD IPA but the only thing missing is the intense bitter lingering finish common of most IPAs. This brew is on par with Schell, lancaster and great lakes american pale ales. I view amercan pale ales as ales that are one step under IPA in intensity but about the same flavor.

Clear amber, small off-white head. Fruit, malt and a little banana aromas. Some spice in the flavor and a bit of a harsh bitter finish.

Very hoppy, almost like an IPA in that regard. Thin white head, slightly sour, with an amber color.

Derek881 (1247) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Sampled on draft in a neighborhood restaurant. A classic amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is mostly of light citrus hops, with a slight malt presence. Flavor was somewhat bitter, perhaps slightly sour. The texture was somewhat thin and the body was on the light side. Not a very distinctive ale, but got the job done.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - DEC 2, 2006
An amber beer, with a white, creamy and fast disappearing head, that leaves some laces on the glass. The aroma is very good, aromatic, with the Cascade hops that gives citrusy notes (especially grapefruit). Also the flavour is hoppy, with a soft mouthfeel, bitter, but not overly, and a pleasant citrusy aftertaste. A satisfacting and easy drinking american pale ale. Suggested. A good beer if you want to start to know how is American beer.
