DocLock (8246) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2004
Pours dark straw. Aroma of hops, citrus, and honey. Tastes crisp, with malt, hops, slight honey, and black pepper flavors. Like all Flying Dog beers, this one finishes exceptionally clean, crisp, and smooth.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2004
Dark amber with a tan-coloured head that is quite persistant. Smells like a pine forest, with citrus and juniper hints. There are also some yeasty, bready aromas in this one. Flavour is also quite hoppy, citrus, pine, and a good malt profile. The flavour is slightly less intense than the aroma would suggest. Very little bitterness considering the hoppy aroma. This is an interesting brew that I would definitely drink again.

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2004
Hoppy flavour and I love Cascade hops. A little weak in the body but overall a nice crisp hoppy beer.

mockerboy (52) - Kansas, USA - APR 8, 2004
It doesn't pour pale and is too hoppy. It also goes flat very easily. A little fruity with a bad aftertaste. I wouldn't have this one again.

AlabastorJones (810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2004
First beer rated on my new computer, nice appearance, clear but dark coloring, almost no head, tart hoppy nose, nice flavor but its brought down by the watery finish, hoppy bite in the initial flavor, some mild fruity sweetness, but it quickly diminishes, like Joey Gladstone's stand up career.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2004
Nice clear orange/gold body. Off-white small fizzy head mostly dissipates. Aroma is nice with caramelly/butterscotchy grapefruit hops. Slightly soured taste, with some bread and lemon hops. Tastes good enough, but isn't spectacular. Is ok overall, but could have improved the flavor slightly.

sloth (2582) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2004
Medium sized offwhite head, fair retention and lace. Clear amber colored brew, sharp. Large fruity nose, some citrus also. Medium body. Medium sweet malt flavors, biscuity along with fruity hop flavors. Finish is a tad sweet, a decent pale ale though.

Bov (10060) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 1, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2007 clear reddish-amber colour with a solid creamy pale beige head; nice lacing, generous flowery aromatic hoppiness; slightly oily mouthfeel; medium to full-bodied; a touch of sweetness soon met by a fair bitterness; long flowery, hoppy aftertaste - pleasant

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Pours clear and golden with nice head, good lacing from initial head. Not much to speak of thereafter. Great aroma! Fruit and honey; it smells like juice. The flavor, however, does not deliver. Weak flavor, lightly fruity, lightly hops bitter: nothing exciting. =[ Mouthfeel is nice medium. Overall: drinkable beer, smells great, but not spectacular.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 29, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2007 This was quite a surprise on my tongue. A very good pale ale that is fairly hoppy with right balance of malts.
