I HATED this beer the first time I drank it. True I was new to beer, but it made me scared of IPA's for awhile. Having said that, now I enjoy IPA's. This beer is nothing specail, yet surely not worthy of "HATE"ing. I enjoyed the very lite hops of this brew. It was still somewhat odd. Another flying dog down.
Lovely label. Good beer. Ipa like an an ipa should be. Mouthfeel could be better. Aftertaste a bit too alcoholic imo. rouhlas (3584) - GREECE - JUL 30, 2015

Very good beer with just the right amount of hoppiness. Smooth IPA as well willisread (3293) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours a copper color with an off-white head. Aromas of floral hops, citrus and some malt. Taste is fairly well-balanced if not boring. British style IPA for sure. BierMeHoos (587) - Maryland, USA - OCT 3, 2014

Obviously been a minute, but I don’t remember this being so different than the newer version, so here’s the same rating: Well balanced well hopped single IPA. Nothing special here, just a good drinking brew, especially in summer! adavis234 (287) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2011
This rating is a memory of the old brew. I’ve always been a fan of Flying Dog (and have also long been a fan of IPAs) and remember being very excited to try this years ago. The result was not what I had expected and was a huge disappointment. Having had the newer brew on numerous occasions I have to say it is much more like what I expected out of a flying dog IPA when I first had this a long time ago.
