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.

After sampling a couple of these today, Iíve found that the quality of the beer has greatly diminished. There was a strange skunky-ness in the background and there seems to be a starch like corn flavor. This was a 3.5 rating before.

This puppy pours an amber / mahogany colored body with a respectable off white frothy head. The aroma is both heavy with malt and hops, aromatic citrus hops, caramel malts.
The flavor is well balanced, nice toasty pine notes with a pronounced grapefruit zest character. Finish is crisp, bitter/sweet and dry.
Overall, this turned out to be a far better APA than I was expecting, recommended!

Great hop aroma and decent head. Pleasant hoppy flavor but I thought the body was a bit thin.

Had some warnings this brand wouldn't be very good. You must have gotten a bad bottle like I did with Bell's Oberon. This stuff is very good and is very sweet and bitter like a pale ale should be. Nice head. A little Lacing. I think this is a very good brew.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2003 Very dark amber with almost no head. Extremely hoppy aroma. Very nice. The malt flavor balanced a nicely bitter finish with a lingering dry aftertaste. Not watery. Very nice, I want another one.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2004 Bottle pours a nice clear amber with a decent head and nice lace. The aroma is quite hoppy to the point of almost acting to clear my sinuses. The flavor is very hoppy with some malt to balance it well. The palate is good for an APA. I like this.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2003
(draught) Clear dark amber. No head. Citrussy, lemonbalm-like hops aroma. Nutty and citrussy hoppy flavour - good American hops. But there's precious little malt to balance. Very little body. OK - but nothing more.

Pours a darker copper with small head. Nice hoppy aroma. Malt flavors with a hop finish. Decent Pale.

Pretty hoppy but didn't ruin my palette. My first from this brewery. Not the worst pale ale, at least.

Very drinkable American Pale Ale. Clean, fresh cascade hops. hopefully in twenty years the U.S will be known for APA's such as this, rather than the macro piss-water brews. Love the artwork also.
