Standing in the grocery and looking for a beer to go with chillin at my lake house for the weekend, and I noticed the very cool slider scales on the six pack cartons of the Flying Dog beers which give an indication of how hoppy and dark the beer. This one was a decent choice for the purpose. Fresh, very hoppy aroma. Flavor was weighted to the hops but it also had a good malt backbone and medium body. Nice and flavorful, as well as refreshing on the first really warm weekend in north Florida. Better than I expected, and the best of the Flying Dogs regular lineup that I have had so far (Road Dog, Tire Bite). A decent APA for $7.19 for a six pack at a country grocery an hour away from Jacksonville FL.

Nice American Pale Ale, it has a nice smooth flavor, a little fruit flavor that I couldn’ tmake out but I could still taste the hops which is what I like in pale ales.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Raw honey amber with a small but persistant cap of light tan head. For a dry hopped beer the aroma level is pretty low. Some orange peel and cinnamon, a touch of gingerbread sweetness, oregano, a little bit of cold sweat. Flavor is kind of a light grainy maltiness with just a touch of the syrup that canned peaches come in. Hop presense is mild, but of the chewy, resiny variety. Nice moderate level of carbonation. A little touch of green vegital quality to the finish. Not a bad APA. I bet this one improves a lot on tap.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2007 Draught at Flying Saucer, San Antonio, 2006-12-23, 6-3-7-4-14=34
Hazy amber color, nice creamy head. Simple aroma. The body is not very strong, but with a good mix of malt caramel and hop, lightly fruity taste. Long bitterness.

Bottle, 2006-03-13, 7-3-5-3-12=30
Beautiful amber color. Not strong aroma, but resiny. Very light taste, with some apricot fruitness. Below expectations..

I think Rajendra said it all in his rating. Classic american style pale ale. This beer had everything that this style should have. Copper in color, with a thick, foamy head. Strong floral hops aroma. It makes you think an ass kicking is coming to your palate, but the flavor is not as great as the aroma. I hate to make this sound bad, because I believe this beer is actually just the opposite. It is good. If you look at the packaging on the six pack it indicates that this is a light bodied, hoppy beer. The hops are just average. This makes this an awesome sessional. Perfect for a boatside session on the dock, in the 95 degree summer heat. Just thinking about it makes me want to drink more. Like I said. Classic of the style. Another winner for the boys at Flying Dog

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 Bottle from Utobeer. In terms of labels, I think this brewery wins. Attractive red/copper colour with beige head. Warm spice, malt, hop aroma. Tangerine fruit. Good dry malt. Good balance. Flavours are quite understated. Fine if not overly special. Bizarrely a flavour on the finish reminded me of cucumber. Don’t know why. 3.2/5.0 Re-rate, bottle from Utobeer. Amber, lasting beige head. Lovely aroma of classic grapefruit PNW hops, piney resinous hop. After a long day with too much rain and cycling, this was perfect supping beer. Decent earthy malts and then this very good piney resiny hop. Nice balance, needs more malt maybe. Good pale ale mind.

Pours a bronzy copper. Taste is fresh and light, with moderate hops followed by a backbone of light malt…finish is a bit watery as this isn’t as bitter nor as dry as I prefer in a beer. But as the point is made it is very good for its style.
