Amber in colour with hints of gold. This particular bottle was WAY over-carbonated. It took over 20 minutes to get all of it into a glass! Nice cascade hop aroma with a bit of malty sweetness drifting in afterwards. Flavors were of bland watered down malts, with little of the hop presence that was apparent from the smell. A real let down.

Orange in color, OK head. Biscuit malt nose with a hop bitter finish. Caramel and biscuit malts fade into sort of a muddled hop bitternes. A touch of hay. Not my thing.

a nice hoppy APA. might be a little too sweet and hoppy for my tastes, but still a solid beer. AMber with a nice head and little noticable carbonation. A lack of malt keeps it from excelling.

Nice white head on a golden/amber body. Crystal clear. Great hoppy aroma. Nice clean mouthfeel. Plenty of hop character without going overboard. Tons of lacing. Went extremely well with some grilled tandoori lamb. I could drink a few of these in an evening.

Amber with an off-white head. The aroma prepares you for good things. Intense hoppy citrus nose. But the taste doesnít come through. Weak and watery and very bland. Itís surprising that its ratings are this high.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Gorgeous copper coloring - this is as attractive a APA as I can remember. Cascade hops are readily apparent in the nose but the hops kick is not as strong as might be expected. Of course Iím drinking this after finishing off an DFH 90 minute IPA so my taste buds may be out of whack. A good and easy-drinking APA but not one of the best

Bottle. Deep copper, frothy head for a PA. Grassy hops, lasting aftertaste, bitter but not overmuch. Pretty good.

A haiku... Finally, good beer. From a brewery that stinks, This one is solid.

The head didnít stick around too long, but it was nice while it lasted. The colour is a nice amber. The taste was very good, well balanced with a good hop character. Very enjoyable session beer.

Perfect aroma and appearancee, although the head is disappointing. Taste doesnít live up to the appearancec but is a good APA nonetheless. Flying Dogís flagship is a pleasant and drinkable ale.
