Standard pale ale amber. Single note of piney hops. Mildly astringent, and lacking in the malt department. There’s a strange sour pinapple thing going on in the finish. A disjointed effort, but not entirely bad.

Needs some more hops, otherwise it isn’t real bad.

GABF 2002: A middy APA. Hoppy, but not hoppy enough. Sort of on the light side.

One of the few beers from Flying dog that I’m not fond of. Don’t get me wrong, its a decent beer, but they do better ones. Average A.P.A. I wish there were more hops in this beer.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 4, 2002
a deep amber body is topped with little head. the aroma is sweet and fruity, and is well balanced between malt and hops. the flavor is malty with notes of sweet fruit and turns quickly to bitter and hoppy.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2002
Cascades in the nose, light to medium amber body, not too much head but I chilled this one too much. Mild interpretation of an APA; clean flavor with restrained hops. A touch watery, as are all the FD ales I’ve tried.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2004 Update: I just had a really good experience with this beer. I have always hated Flying Dog's subpar micros, but my last sample of this tasted like a very fresh SNPA. Not bad, actually. Old: A nice looking pour. The malt has a liettle more dirt than most APAs. Some bright fruit. Good, but have the sense that this has been done so many times before and to better effect.

I do love a good pale ale, and this one didn’t dissapoint, but it didn’t wow either. Copper beauty with hoppy flave and malty finish.

Sort of spicy maltiness. Could always benefit from more hops. I always like getting the flying dog beers when I do run across them cuz their labels are pretty sweet.

Pretty good pale ale. I wouldn’t take it over sierra nevada, but it is worth trying. The bottle is pretty entertaining, too.
