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.

This is a really nice beer, nice golden color with a small head, citrus smell, very hoppy and flavorful.

Light honey color. Thin inconsequential head. Nice aroma. Decent flavor. Subdued hops. Good finish. Nice beer.

Amber color, small head. Typical pine aroma but not as noticable as other west coast pales. Taste is also mild. Does not live up to its label art.

Moderate amber colour, slight head. Starts a little watery (needs some more malt), but finishes with a nice, dry hoppiness. This is a decent American Pale, but not quite up there with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale or Victory HopDevil IPA. At a buck a beer, I would recommend giving it a try.

Medium/dark clear amber, good foam. An enjoyable pale ale with enough malt character to keep me interested, although the finish is just a bit thin.

Dark golden colour, amber perhaps. Nice head which stays for a long period of time. Very hoppy smell with hints of spice. Spicy hoppy taste too, but an unsatisfying amount of hops. A fairly good flavour for the intial two seconds, then fades away very quick.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2003
Spicy hops and a touch of malt in the aroma. I don't get the 'load of Cascade hops', its not very citrusy. Clear amber color, good head retention and lacing. Pleasant blend of spicy hops and malt in the flavor, not huge, but very enjoyable. A good pizza-and-wings kind of beer.

WabashMan (1007) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2003
A nice, spicy hopped American pale. Fairly dry flavor, despite low ABV. The beginning of the pint is fairly hoppy, but the strength fades near the end, and it all tastes a little watery. Nice, good, but not spectacular by any stretch of the imagination.

I wasn't very impressed with this. Glad I had the barleywine first or I might not have drank it. Pours a brownish amber with a decent head. That's when it hit me. Cascade and hoppy bitterness. Moreso than any beer I've had in a while. Upon reading the description it seems it shouldn't be this hoppy, but mine is. Taste seems a bit sweet but has the bitterness from the hops I don't care for. Finishes a little dry but with a bitter kick. Not my cup of tea.

This really nice ale has "enough hop character to satisfy hop-heads" (flying dog website). Being a hophead myself, I couldn't stop trying to get all the flavor out of each sip. Very satisfying and unique brew that must have come from some very clean lines and a fresh keg. It left nothing to be desired.
