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 isnít overpoweringly hoppy. Itís brilliant amber-copper color and pleasant malt flavor comes from the addition of Carastan malts.

Dark amber. Crisp and clear. Lasting caramel skiff and light lacing. Strong, but not overpowing, grapefruit aroma mixed with light caramel and interesting fruit scents. Above average for the style. There are some complex but unidentifiable flavours that mix with the defining hops. Finish is fruity but drops off quickly leaving a lingering hop taste.

Tap @ Flying Saucer - Lot of hops in this one. Although not my favorite style, it didnít go to waste. Found it drinkable and not too bitter. Very impressive amber appearance and head, not what I expected a pale to look like. The added spiciness really helped the finish.

Nice Beer. On the pour :great amber colour,strong tan head,big bubbles and huge lacing.Some hops noted on the pour in the nose. On the taste:Starts sweet and malty,with a touch of carmal,then in come the hops,real nice too,I have had IPAís with less hops.this reminds me of a classic English pale ale,only sweeter inspite of the extra hops. Nice body and mouthfeel,good body.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 What a drinkable ale. I could drink millions of these in a row and be satisfied. Very thirst quenching. On tap at Opal Divineís in Austin. Good looking. Dark copper, penny colored body broken by a myriad of fizzy carbonation bubbles. Beautiful thick tan head that lingers on and on. Nose is overflowing with Cascades. Smells excellent. Florally and cloyingly candy like like cascades are if done right. Malt backbone not present in bouquet. This brew goes down very easy, perhaps too easy. I drank this in five minutes. Deceptive. Most pales begin with a very woody cedary or oaky quality on the forefront. This eventually gives way to the taste of the hops you smelled as you tipped the glass. This brew is no exception. Very oaky on the front end. Malt presence is dominant on the forefront. This is juxtaposed with a healthy dose of carbonation that matches the malt well because the hops are so brilliant and yet not overpowering. Mouthfeel is quenching rather than weighty. Good brew get 2 sixers cause they wonít last long. grat

On tap at The Gate. Poured light red/amber, with a slight hoppy aroma. Taste had a minimal bitterness with some fruit, almost cherry and mild hoppiness.

Pours orasnge/amber. Aroma is grapefruit, but not overpowering. Taste is hoppy, but subtle. Body is too thin. It seems that itís trying to be more, but doesnít quite make it.

Iím a huge fan of pale ales and this is a very respectable one. Also it is a very creative label and funny name...doggie style %)

I had just had a Sam Smith Nut Brown ale the night before I tried this beer. For so much less money I was expecting less distinctive flavor, But the Flying Dog Pale Ale had a lot of bright hoppy tang. There is almost to much flavor in the after taste which is pungent and bittersweet. The aftertaste tends to hang on to your palate more than many other ales, but mostly if I tried to drink to quickly. For the money you can’t beat this beer. It cost less than Sam Adams at the grocery store where I found it. I am looking forward to trying the very affordable line of flying dog beers.

Bottle. Pours light amber/brown, small head. Good hoppy, citrus, wood aroma to start. Flavor is not bad, hoppy but not over the top, good malt base, there was something off that I could not put my finger on, but good non-the less. Medium/light mouth feel.
