pintbypint (2976) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2004
355ml brown bottle. Dark orange pour, frothy off white head, very creamy and lacy. Earthy nose with some light citrusy hop and some caramel. Decent maltiness and a satisfying hoppiness.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 15, 2004
Light brown with big head that fades quickly leaving a nice lace. Hop nose with light citrus and vanilla. Med weight with a light mouthfeel and drying finish. Basic hop flavors and light malt character. Not bad.

jigglyjock (165) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2005 Not what I expected from a pale ale. It poured a rich deep amber color. Scent of a rich hoppy beer. Tasted hoppy with a nice bitter aftertaste. The hop flavor is really piney. The best beer Iíve had from Flying Dog.

Crockett (1032) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2004
My bottle read "Classic Pale Ale", the rest of the information and the goofy label are exactly the same. Pours big amber with an off white head. Melony hop, cedar and caramel aroma. Flavours are balanced bittersweet. Burnt sugar, caramel, pithy tangerine sweetness. Sharp medicinal anise/licorice. Some earth, tarragon and mint. The Hop bite dies off quickly. Itís true to character, but it isnít as punchy as the nose might suggest. No overachiever.

obxdude10 (2121) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2004
Amber color with a huge off-white head, nice lacing around the glass, decent hoppy nose with lots of malt involved as well, subtle hop flavors with even more subtle malt tones, a bit thin in taste & body, nice hoppy finish & aftertaste though

piscator34 (2152) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 8, 2004
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.

Kinz (3527) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2004
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.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2004
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.

BearBrewer (86) - New York, east village, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2004
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.
