2.58/5  rDev -22.3%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from bottle into Bruery tulip. Never heard of this brewery before. Appearance is golden orange. Vigorous pour yet the carbonation dies down quickly. For an extra pale ale, there is pretty much no hop smell. It smells and tastes more like a lager or pilsner to me. It has that grainy, adjuncty taste to it. Very little hop profile. Mouthfeel is fine.

Overall, I may have got a bad bottle. No date on the bottle, so I can't say really. It's an okay beer at best, but it certainly doesn't taste like an extra pale ale (or a pale ale for that matter)

3.83/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

DATE TASTED: May 4, 2014... GLASSWARE: Howard's Pub pint... OCCASION: toilet--replaced; lawn--cut; bathroom--painted = beer time!... APPEARANCE: creamy white head that attractively flairs; dark golden straw-colored, evenly effervescent body; drains evenly... AROMA: vibrant citric (mostly orange with some melon and pear as well) and floral notes with some light caramel malts--accessible and intriguing... PALATE: soft, lagerish body,, equally creamy and thinly taut--sessionable and perfectly at home...TASTE: Flying Fish continues to leave me a happy consumer, as this pale ale a strong profile fits within the genre well and yet is memorable enough to e sought again--maybe not at the bottle shop, but in a restaurant or bar...
