One of my favorites, though Iím not crazy about the other flying dog beers that iíve tried so far. Fruity and clean, light and hoppy.

An amber color with a small head. Aroma is a tad citrus and the taste has a similar flavor. Not much to say about this one.

Smell had citrus, graitfruit and caramel. The taste was the same but one dimensional. I was looking for layers and did not get them. Good Pale Ale none the less.

Pours an amber body. Aroma is hoppy and earthy. Flavor is the same dominated by caramel. Nothing special.

This tastes like a home brew recipie that has been refined but not tweaked to perfection. I swear I taste Irish Moss in this one. A better than average pale ale but just slightly. Sad to say since itís a CO brew. I need to taste more of the FD brews to get a better sense of them as a whole. Not impressed with this one....very blah. Flat on the taste aroma and flavor. Maybe itís the in between micro and macro market they were going for because I get the sense, based on distribution of the FD beers that they do well. Cheers!

2005 bottle consumed 9/6/2005. Sweet and hoppy once the cap is popped. Quite fresh and powerful smelling. Bit of buttercream backing, but lots of nice tangerines and pineapples. Sharp and spicy, quite perfumey and leafy; the hops stick out nicely, but thereís a good caramel backing in there. Rusty, copper-amber color with a small beige head, moderate retention, no lacing. Clear and filtered/force carbonated. As the hoppiness recedes some sweet nutty and fruity tones are felt. Flavor is perfumey and lightly citric with a good spiciness mixed with caramel. Fruity, pleasant, spicy. Fairly vacuous mouthfeel, but not nearly as bad as most filtered beers. Cherries, oranges. . fade to light nutty caramel.

Suposedly the pick of the litter. (other than specialties) Pours a nice spotty head with a reddish orange hue. good hop aroma, not much backbone. Not much hop in the mouth, but the aftertaste is dry and somewhat bitter. While watery, its smooth and refreshing. Someone told me it was written up in some large market newspaper, but I cannot quite understand why?

Draft At Taco Mac in Chattanooga. Dark amber color with a moderate white head that diminished slowly. Moderate hop and malt aroma. Medium body. Moderate hop flavor with a moderate sweet bitter finish.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2005
Fairly hoppy aroma with a touch of malt sweetness. Copper with a decent sized bubbly white head. Grapefruit bitterness and crisp hoppiness rests atop a very mild malt foundation. Very uncomplicated beer. Decent.

With a deep color for the style, this one tastes of floral hops dampened by an earthy maltiness. Altogether a good, drinkable pale ale that doesnít offer anything too exciting besides the artwork on the label.
