Pours fairly dark for a pale ale. Decent head. Very citrusy aroma from the hops. This beer has a good balance for one in a style known to be high in IBU’s. I don’t typically like pale or india pale ales but I could easily appreciate this one.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2010 Bottled. An amber coloured beer with a tan puddle of a head. The aroma is nice and hoppy. The hops giving belief the beer will be more bitter than most APAs. The taste is bitter as imagined. Good hoppiness but quite an astringent chocolate lime thing going on in the aftertaste which detracts from the overall impression.Score 3.4
Subsequent ratings scored 3.4, 3.6, 3.6 and 3.5. Average becomes 3.5.

Rballs01 (282) - Madison, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Pours fizzy and quick. Deep mohogany in color with a fluffy thick head. The hops and malt combined into one great scent. One balanced beer. Average in flavor. Big for a pale ale.

Chucks66 (85) - Beachwood, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Pours with a off-white head, hazy amber color. Citrus hop aroma. Nice blast of cascade hop flavor, nice citrus and grapefuit balanced by a malt background that dims the hop bitterness. This is what I expect an american pale ale to taste like. Very drinkable

ilikestuff (224) - Irving, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Better than most pale ales. Has a more bitter hoppy flavor to it, not as much hop as an IPA though. A little darker than expected with a nice golden amber color and light tan fluffy head that goes away pretty quick. Great malty aroma at first, then little aroma afterwards. A nice drinking beer.

Pours a very clear amber, copper, much darker than I expected. Somewhat thick, off-white head. Hops appear in the nose and on the tongue. Enjoyed it much more than Flying Dog’s IPA. Not a big Pale Ale fan, but this is one of the most enjoyable I’ve tasted thus far.

YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2006 Nice amber orange color. Small head. Nice malt nose. Chewey hoppy and grape taste- very floral - medium long lasting.

frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2006
Pours a deep, coppery/amber with minimal carbonation and a lasting, cream-colored head that falls in sudsy peaks. Aroma finds mouthwatering, peppery PNW hops with notes of powdered (instant) lemon-tea. The taste may let down those who were led on by the well-hopped nose, but this brew is extremely flavorful and sessionable. There is a mild hop bite (grapefruit and lemon) but the whole of the flavor is balanced and reminiscent of an ESB with a biscuity profile and strains of tea in the finish. I do believe this is the Flying Dog flagship and must comment that it is as well-made and easy-to-drink as those by Goose Island, Bell’s, New Belgium, etc.

Bottle from qdog. Pours a deep amber color and clear. Smallish white head dissipates quickly, moderate lacing left behind. Aroma is a bit oxidized, hints of cardboard. Some caramel. Hops aren’t terribly evident in nose. Medium bodied with fair carbonation. Cardboardy flavors, some caramel, not much hop action going on in flavor. I am guessing an older bottle here. Underwhelming.
