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 isn’t overpoweringly hoppy. It’s brilliant amber-copper color and pleasant malt flavor comes from the addition of Carastan malts.

Nice color and pretty cream-colored off white head. Aroma was straight ahead cascades. Very hoppy beer, which is not a bad thing. the problem is that there was not enough malt balance. not really a traditional pale ale. There are better versions of an APA. A little disappointed.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2003 Bottle, no expiration date. This is a very nice APA with more modest hopping than many these days. Hop aroma and taste is typical of American hops with citrusy grapefruit. Instead of trying to outdo others in the hops, these guys make a well balanced decently hopped beer. A great session APA. I upped the score after retasting. I want to cosy up to a keg of this stuff....

egajdzis (5196) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2003 Poured a light amber color with a small head that left a little lacing. Citrus hoppy aroma, with a fairly bitter hop taste.

3fourths (7801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2003
UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Draft rating: Nice leafy fresh hop nose, light citrus and sweet gummy sugars. Fresh tasting with a light honey note among the refreshing and light hop lemon and sweet orange flavors. Considerably better on draft. Bottle rating: The aroma is interesting: old leather and west coast hops mixed a bit freakishly. The initial taste has a nice hop body, but the mid-drink and the finish are not so enjoyable: some stale fruit and vegetable flavors. Has to be the best of the three beers sampled tonight, even thought I rated it lowest. That doesn’t say much as I took from the store only what I have not tried (minus any lagers or malt liquors). This rating was a 2.9 for bottle.

A wonderful Pale Ale! I love the coppery color, the citrus nose, delicious hoppiness,nice mouthfeel, medium malt middle, and the grapefruit aftertaste. Just the right amount of everything - and great with food! The waiter at our local Old Chicago Pizza Parlour recommended it from among the 110 beers they carry, and I was not disappointed. This beer compares well with my long time favorite, Bridgeport IPA.

Golden amber color and aroma of soft hops and malt. Quite hoppy and crisp. A fairly decent pale ale overall.

what a normal pale ale should taste like, except for the bitof floral hops that was showing too far out of the spectrum, besides that it is a normal good beer

cAPSLOCK (155) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2003
Somewhat spicy with a sweet nose, moderate head and pretty lace. A good Amercan pale ale. So many others are thin... this isn't, but at the beer doesn't really make me want lots more.

Awesome artwork that is backed up by one of the best examples of a pale ale ive had. It reminds me of an english pale ale: thick flavors that dont overpower, substance in the body with no water. it finishes with a crispy bitterness. The nose is what i call the flying dog nose...most of their ales seem to have this candyish, sweet nose that kind of reminds me of sweet potatoes.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 I bought this because the bottle featured art by the engish artist, Ralph Steadman. Steadman, being quite a unique artist brought my attention to the lone six pack on the shelf at the store. I thought, "here's a new beer that, even if I don't like the beer, at least I'll have a cool bit of packaging to do with what I please...". Here's the suprise: not only do the box and bottle feature the art of Ralph Steadman, but the beer within if absolutely fantastic. Pours a deep red/honey color, good initial head that diminishes to a fine khaki layer that rests on top pf the beer, aroma is definite hops, a bit of grapefruit, a little bubblegum. Flavor is light, yet finely detailed. good hop character blends smoothly with malts to form a perfect mild quencher of a beer that has enough flavor to make it interesting. Palate is just a bit thin. The name is great, the packaging absolutely top notch, and the beer worthy of the image it presents. Highly recommended. ODDLY ENOUGH: I've looked for this beer again, and sadly cannot find it. The sixer I bought was all alone on the shelf, didn't register in the store's computer, and cannot be found again. How odd...
