On tap. I really enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Pours a brown/amber color with a slight cream head. Hops are there obviously but there is an earthy malt presence that gives this beer some body and substance. Hopefully this stuff is the same way out of the bottle.

tap. pours almost amber brown with a thin light grey head. aroma is light pine. but mostly orange citrus hop. taste is singed hops and husky notes. citrus hop taste in the finish. doesn’t sit well on the tongue. the 2nd half of this is harder to drink than the first.

Not too bad for an APA, but not mind-blowing by any means. This brew pours a light amber hue and has a pretty one-dimensional basic APA flavor, but still, here in CO its easy to find this beer really cheap and it’s a great brew to drink whilst mowing the lawn.

Nice appearance but the flavor was a bit primative. If nothing else, the name is a conversation piece!

An everyday beer. Great clean fresh taste with some citrus, grapefruit flavor. Good beer.

Draft at Melting Pot. Light Amber color. Medium Head. Citrus Aroma and hoppy flavor. Great alternative to the everyday pale ale.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 4, 2005
Dark copper, decent head retention. Light bodied, very dry, pine and citrus flavors, rusty malt flavor, slightly resin ous. Dryness and light honey don’t balance well with the resinousnes.

A balanced, drinkable offering. I don’t remember too many details as I had it several nights ago, but worth trying. Best offering from Flying Dog I’ve tried.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2005 I was not immpressed with this, pale ale with some watery taste. Nothing special, but drinkable.Re-rate 6-30-05 I must have been in a bad mood. This was really a nice PA. Color was burnt orange. Very nice hops, this was much better then my first immperssion.

I have to admit that I was drawn to this beer ’cause of the ’naughty’ name it features as its moniker. Nonetheless, I’ll call this one Pale Ale light, as the hops just aren’t as pronounced as they should be, and the malt doesn’t assert itself enough. Fair beer, but not one to go out of your way for.
