Notes/Commercial Description:
Turbodog is a dark brown ale brewed with Willamette hops and a combination of pale, crystal and chocolate malts. This combination gives Turbodog its rich body and color and a sweet chocolate toffee-like flavor. Turbodog began as a specialty ale but has gained a huge loyal following and has become one of our flagship brews.

To me, this beer has a small malty nose.
It’s predominant flavor is hops. Dark color almost stout like, but I’d
call it a brown ale. The mouthfeel is that of a "lite" beer. The hops flavor dissolves on the pallet and turns to water like consistency, although the finish is clean but not particularly long lasting. Overall I’d lump it in the lighter bodied brown ale department. Not bad, but I believe there are better/more satisfying.
