UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 (4/8/08, 12oz bottle, thanks Peregrinari) Large and fluffy beige head atop clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, grapefruit/orange, light pine. Taste is moderately sweet, orange/grapefruit, caramel, light cookie. Soft, light-medium body with some resin. (8/4/7/3/14)

(1/19/03) Clear amber body with minimal tan head. Aroma is sharply cascade hoppy. Tasting it, I understood where the name came from -- it’s got a mild malty body, until you get to the strong HOPpiness in the BACK of the taste. Finishes with moderately sweet grapefruit that doesn’t linger. (8/4/7/3/14)

Dogbrick (13036) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Cask version at Fat Head’s in Pittsburgh. Pours a dark amber color with a thin off-white head. Thin and foamy lacing. The aroma is outstanding: Citrus hops, malt, caramel and fruit. Very smooth body, with a strong floral hops flavor, followed by malt and spice. The finish is slick and earthy hops and malt.
