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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a golden copper color. The head is a two finger white shade, with a foamy texture and decent retention. Nice lacing is left behind on the glass. S: Actually, Iím mildly impressed here. Thereís a decent (if not explosive) hit of mango and melon on the nose, with some of the crackery malts coming through after it sits in the glass slightly. This is actually a lot better than I remembered. T: Hops hit the palate first, but without any bitterness - just some nice tropical flavors. Toffee-esque malts come through on the finish, maybe slightly too assertively. Slight piny hints right after the swallow, too. Itís exactly what a good pale ale should be: balanced, easy to drink, satisfying, and refreshing. M: Thereís a very crisp bite which helps to mitigate some of the thick-feeling maltiness and semi-sweet finish. Itís carbonated enough to help make it drinkable. O: This must have been reformulated somewhere along the way, because I donít remember this being so good. It wonít blow the mind, but it will make a great everyday go-to beer.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into a goblet. Amber and pretty clear with a off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops, pine, caramel, toasted malts and light skunky stale notes. Similar flavor, medium bitter hops balanced by mild sweet malts. Average body, pretty creamy and smooth with a crisp, light dry finish that lingers.

Got this one at the Mezz in tap. It was a good brew. Not much nose to this one but the taste had more to offer. It has a mild piney hoppy flavor, without a ton of booze, which makes it a good session beer.

12 ounce bottle pours a clear light copper color with a moderate amount of head that dissipates in one minute and nice lacing. Moderate citrus aroma as well as some earthy smell as well. Nice sipping beer with a bit of a harsh aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Drinking date: 19 February 2014) slightly hazy orange/amber colour with a thin layer of head. Lovely hoppy aroma of bread, pineapple and grapefruit. Not very powerfull aroma, more would have been better. But still, a lovely aroma. The taste is very good. Fresh, fruity and not too bitter, but still bitter. A little bit of sweetness at the end. The aftertaste is a nice bitterness, it stays not really long. In the mouth it also feels not too watery, but it is watery enough, so exactly right. The carbonation is also exactly right. Overall, I really enjoyed this beer. Good aroma, lovely taste, refreshing beer. Thatís why it gets the total score of 4.0! :)

Bottle. Copper with medium white head. Aroma of resinous pine hops and grain. Light/medium body with resinous hop bitterness and some malt body.

Paled amber, short lived white head, visible carb. Smells like oversweet coppers - and by that I mean a bunch of 2p coins in a bucket with flat coke. Odd but not horrific. Skids of sweet hop initially with a decent malt thrust. Decent carbonation and steadily gets maltier as it warms up. Soft lemon resin towards the finish and a well found caramac bump on the linger. Thought this would be a bit more juicy.

Butelka 0.3L. Złote, klarowne iskrzące. Piana w kolorze złamanej bieli, śrendioobfita, dość drobna ale niestety szybo dziurawi się. Lekko oblepia szkło. Aromat przyjemny, średniointensywny, przede wszystkim chmielowy: cytrusy i żywica. lekko wyczuwalne nuty karmelowe. W smaku bielmo grejpfruta, czuć cytrus, ktůry szybko przechodzi w goryczkę. Piwo wytrawne ze średnim nasyceniem. Ciało niskie. Goryczka grejpfrutowa, średniointensywna, krůtka. Finisz zdecydowanie wytrawny, lekko suchy. Bardzo przyjemne, chmielowe APA
