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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2003
(sampled draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, Sweden) Amber color with a thick foamy white head. Hoppy aroma. A bit thin in flavour and body. Some grassy and hoppy oily notes was found. Hmmm...avarge.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - SEP 18, 2003
12 oz. brown bottle. No freshness date seen anywhere. Sorry folks, I just don't see it. This is not a great beer by any stretch of the imagination. Poured out a very dark orange - copper color. Not appropriate for the style. Too dark. No head to speak of, no lacing either. Not much in the way of malty aromas, slight hoppy aroma though. Thin body, with little or no mouthfeel to it. Watery tasting & bland also. Not a good beer in my book.

amber color with decent fizzy head, I always love cascade hops and these are present in spades. Drinkable in quantity, nice APA

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2003
As shiny and coppery as a freshly minted penny. Medium-sized, fizzy, persistent, eggshell head. Very well-hopped. Evergreen, citrus and white pepper in the aroma. Tart and tangy flavor. Well-balanced with an adequate amount of malt. Mostly this beer is about hops, though. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Tart, tangy and piney finish.

boto (1826) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - SEP 9, 2003
Draught: Sampled at the Ct River Brewers Festival. This beer was a golden, almost yellow color. The aroma and taste were both somewhat thin. There was some hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Definitely a dog.

lstorie3 (17) - Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA - SEP 4, 2003
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.

EKGoldings (526) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2003
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 (5253) - 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 (7861) - 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.

palliko (12) - Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2003
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.
