COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dry Hopped with a load of Cascade hops grown in the Pacific Northwest. Doggie Style has enough hop character to satisfy hop-heads, but isn’t overpoweringly hoppy. It’s brilliant amber-copper color and pleasant malt flavor comes from the addition of Carastan malts.

This is one of my favorite american pale ales. It pushes the hop limit without being an IPA. Very similar to a SNPA, but a little better in my book. Even a friend of mine who basicly only drinks SNPA said "Damn, this is an excallent beer. Maybe better than SNPA." It is just not as readily available as SNPA is to me.

Dark amber body, with a small white head. Nice moderate hoppy aroma (resiny, pine) is a good indicator as to what to expect in the flavour. Bit of malt at first blush, backs up a fairly moderate amount of hoppy bitterness. Moderate is relative, I like mine hoppier but this is definitely acceptable and hoppier than many. Average palate. Quite quaffable, and pleasant but hardly a revelation. Cheers Ralph!

Amber colour - looks a lot like their Old Scratch Amber. Aroma and flavour both remind me of a good batch of homemade iced tea laced with hops. A bit of woodiness in the flavour as well. Aroma is actually hoppier than the flavour, but otherwise, it’s pretty well balanced and pleasant.

thegreenrooster (3243) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Pour is orange with a white head. Aroma of hops hit you first thing. Flavor is slightly hoppy but more of a malt backbone. This is a beer that smells better than it tastes. Not really bad but a tad to thin.

Indy (87) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Good hop/fruit aroma. Light copper-red in color, it tastes surprisingly balanced. Decent hop kick, but doesn’t quite go far enough in my opinion. Slightly watery, but not really enough to make me dislike it in any way. I like this beer, and I buy it often. I’d really like to find it on tap.

Bottle. Pour is light red with medium-sized light tan head that leaves plenty of lace. Aroma is strongly of grassy hops, mildly woody and some citrus fruit. Taste is a little fruity and pretty well-balanced. Not as hoppy as the aroma would make it seem. The sweet malts just give it a stale taste. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Not worth trying again.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 22, 2005
12 oz bottle. Very clear light bronze color with a slight but lasting top...woody-fruity (baked apricots) and a bit of wet pine in the aroma...predominantly sweet flavor, assertive dry late hops...watery finish, thin and perhaps a touch brackish/salty. Drinkable, certainly unremarkable.

TChrome (1420) - Bedford, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Pouring cooper brown in color with a somewhat retained beige colored head. Aroma has notes of citric hops, and some earth maltiness too. Not hoppy enough flavor to be one of my favorites, however combines a nice hop, earthy malt balance. Pretty good for the style. I will probably keep some of these around this summer.

Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 21, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2005 Grassy and hoppy aroma, stronger than in SNPA. Drank it from the bottle, though -- unsure how it looks. Very hoppy APA. Great grassy/citrussy flavor. Malt is still present, but very nicely hopped. Great always there APA.

This is hoppy. Hoppy Hoppy Hoppy. If one were to bottle rabbits, I bet it would taste like this...or blood and fur. At any rate, hoppy, not good draught, don’t do that. Bottle is fine for me, thanks.
