UPDATED: MAR 16, 2006 This was the first of the Flying Dog Brewery I had had, but had known about it for some time. Itís not my favorite of the bunch, but itís very drinkable and, at least the first 6 pack I had had, not as hoppy as most Pale Aleís Iíve had. Overall, a very good "drinking" beer. Pours a slightly dark amber (a dark cider color) with medium "fizz" head.

pours clear copper with a frothy head. very hoppy smell and bitter taste confirms it. decent but probably a step below their IPA.

patrick767 (3951) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 9, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2005 bottle - This is a nice pale ale, and is on the high end of the bitterness scale for the style. It has a somewhat malty aroma, but the taste and aftertaste is dominated by the hops. This brew is a pretty good choice, though certainly not the best of whatís probably my favorite style, the pale ale.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Tap. Slight hops on the nose with a faded amber colour. Not much difference in flavor with the Flying Dog IPA actually. A much better pale ale than the IPA, but still nothing overwhelming.

albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 6, 2005
Deep amber color, nicely lasting creamy/rocky off-white head, leaves a nice lace. Mild resiny hop aroma, caramelly hints and a bit of pepper. Smooth tasting malty brew with a slightly bitter finish.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 [bottle - 12 oz] Clear orange. No head. Some lacing though. The description says itís supposed to have lots of hops, but the aroma doesnít really have much to it. Some sweet malts, and it took me a minute to find any of the hops. The taste on the other hand has a nice hop flavor to it. Lots of hops up front with a slightly sweet taste following it and then a crisp and slightly dry hoppy finish. The aftertaste is a cross between hops and citrus.
