a really smooth pale ale, not too light,but light enough not to offend newbies to the style. Had a crisp hopp aroma with a faint malt presance. Flavor was primarily hops. Needs a head with retention, head almost disappered while i poured it.

A decent pale ale, light and hoppy. Goes down smooth, and pleasant. Decent session beer.

My first Flying Dog. Not really what I expected out of an APA. Reddish amber color with a decent off white head. Not really a strong hoppy aroma. A little citrus. Pretty good malty flavor. The hops there weren’t really great either. good beer.

Dark amber. Crisp and clear. Lasting caramel skiff and light lacing. Strong, but not overpowing, grapefruit aroma mixed with light caramel and interesting fruit scents. Above average for the style. There are some complex but unidentifiable flavours that mix with the defining hops. Finish is fruity but drops off quickly leaving a lingering hop taste.

Tap @ Flying Saucer - Lot of hops in this one. Although not my favorite style, it didn’t go to waste. Found it drinkable and not too bitter. Very impressive amber appearance and head, not what I expected a pale to look like. The added spiciness really helped the finish.

Nice Beer. On the pour :great amber colour,strong tan head,big bubbles and huge lacing.Some hops noted on the pour in the nose. On the taste:Starts sweet and malty,with a touch of carmal,then in come the hops,real nice too,I have had IPA’s with less hops.this reminds me of a classic English pale ale,only sweeter inspite of the extra hops. Nice body and mouthfeel,good body.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 What a drinkable ale. I could drink millions of these in a row and be satisfied. Very thirst quenching. On tap at Opal Divine’s in Austin. Good looking. Dark copper, penny colored body broken by a myriad of fizzy carbonation bubbles. Beautiful thick tan head that lingers on and on. Nose is overflowing with Cascades. Smells excellent. Florally and cloyingly candy like like cascades are if done right. Malt backbone not present in bouquet. This brew goes down very easy, perhaps too easy. I drank this in five minutes. Deceptive. Most pales begin with a very woody cedary or oaky quality on the forefront. This eventually gives way to the taste of the hops you smelled as you tipped the glass. This brew is no exception. Very oaky on the front end. Malt presence is dominant on the forefront. This is juxtaposed with a healthy dose of carbonation that matches the malt well because the hops are so brilliant and yet not overpowering. Mouthfeel is quenching rather than weighty. Good brew get 2 sixers cause they won’t last long. grat

On tap at The Gate. Poured light red/amber, with a slight hoppy aroma. Taste had a minimal bitterness with some fruit, almost cherry and mild hoppiness.

Pours orasnge/amber. Aroma is grapefruit, but not overpowering. Taste is hoppy, but subtle. Body is too thin. It seems that it’s trying to be more, but doesn’t quite make it.
