GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Draught. Thick off white head that laced the glass. Appealing malty, brown sugar and flowery hop aroma. Buttery caramel, brown sugar and citrus hop flavors are well balanced. Mild hop bitterness. Smooth finish wit the hoppiness creeping up the palate into the nose. Very good.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 Bottle. Amber with a medium head. Aroma of bittersweet Cascade hops. Flavors of more of the cascade hops, but not overly bitter. Very well balanced and extremely drinkable. Way to go Doggie Style. I always knew I liked ya.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2005
On draught. Golden, almost amber, with a foamy white head. Hops present in the aroma were not overpowering. Easy drinking for an APA since it seems the hops have been reverse-Lagassied (i.e. kicked down a notch). Some malt sweetness to match the some-hop bitterness. Probably not a bad beginner brew for someone new to the style.

blankboy (6633) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2005
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with a large dissipating off-white head. This bottle is approx. a year old and the aroma of hops, caramel and sweet malt still smells fresh. Flavour has a nice balanced blend of hops and malt -- I usually prefer my Ales hoppier then this but this just tastes really good. A really good session beer.

Padron4KM (690) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - OCT 14, 2005
12 oz bottle from a mixed 12 pack. 200A05 printed on the lower corner of the label. july 31 05 I assume.
Pours out clear amber bordering on caramel in color, with a thick two finger head you could almost float a quarter on. Looks promising.
Aroma is light caramel and grapefruit.
Flavor is sort of bland, a little caramel and some citrus zest.
ok

Ayumbomb (63) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2005
I realizing more and more that I should give up on Fying Dog. I thought that this pale ale kinda had a IPA taste (which for me is a bad thing). See for yourself.

bu11zeye (12314) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2005
(Draught) Pours a clear amber body with an average white head. Aroma of mild grapefruit and caramel. Flavor of mild hops and caramel malt.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 10, 2005
The aroma had light fermented fruit, grapefruits, citrus, orange zest, and a light malt note. The flavor had a thin orange note w/ light fruit and slight grapefruits. The beer poured a golden orange color w/ yellow highlights; thin head and lacing. The mouthfeel was light and carbonated.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2010 Draft. Much better than the bottle I tried years ago. Dark amber, fresh herbal aroma, and a solid dose of cascade hoppiness. Just the right ’weight’ for a bar quaffer. Finishes dry and tart. Nice.
