Ok, this is my 3rd beer in a row by Flying Dog brewery, and they are all starting to taste the same...which isn't a bad thing! Nice hoppy flavor, taste a lot like their Scottish ale.

A clear amber color, topped by a tan head. There is a hoppy slightly piney, slightly citrusy aroma. There is a hint of malt under the hoppy aromatics as well. Nicely bitter up front in the mouth. There is a light maltiness in the finish. The beer is a bit too cold at first, so I warm it up for a bit. The hop flavor is a mix of piney, & orange/ citrusy. Finishes with a good pale ale level of bitterness. There is an after taste here that I cannot quite pin down, it is part of the hop flavor. Perhaps a hint of menthol in the finish, along with a bit of grassy hop flavor. This is a good solid example of an American Pale ale.

(Bottle) Pours a thin, white head and a orange-copper body. Fruity cascade hops nose with a thin, hoppy but not overpowering taste. Nice!

Amber coloured with nice thick head which laces. Nice hoppy aroma with a little citrus, nice malts with west coast resinous hops (cascade?).

I enjoyed this one pretty well. I like how the hoppiness wasn't as in-your-face as some other well known examples of similar styles. Very refreshing.

eraserhd10 (226) - new haven, Connecticut, USA - NOV 22, 2003
As usual, this bottle is easily recognized by the unimitable Ralph Steadman's artwork. A hopsy and slightly bitter concoction that is a pretty red-brown in color. A cool beer and a good beer, but I just didn't find it to be a great beer! A bit too pungent and sweet & soury for me. Hearty taste and a bit weak on the finish.

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 17, 2003
This started off as something good.... However it nosed-dived quickly. Slightly citrusy with a really bad aftertaste. This beer was across from a pale ale and a wheat beer, but it became neither in the end. The best I can say is that this beer started off with a good idea. But thanks to BeerandBlues2 for giving me this one.

Hangover (1110) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Wonderfully stong citrusy, hoppy aroma. Pours amber with a lasting, yet very thin head. Man you can tell they don't skimp on the hops in this beer... slightly acidic aftertaste, but definitely drinkable. A surprisingly good beer. I will buy this again.

BeerandBlues2 (11971) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Wonderful pine aroma reminding me of a mango. Clear dark amber color. Starts with a heavy bitter flavor and finishes a little lighter. Medium on the palate with an oily feel.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2005 Tried this again in the bottle. The body is a dark amber with a very thin head. The aroma is grapefruit and flowers. The taste is dark bread and grapefruit from the hops. Very nicely balanced. Really, a pretty good pale ale.
