3.5/5  rDev -3.8%

Very solid, but not oustanding, pale ale. Color of both beer & head a shade darker than what one expects from a PA. Robust, fruity taste and very substantial mouthfeel with an almost syrupy sweet overtone. A little light on the bitterness and carbonation. I'm thinking that's why it might be lacking that crystal-clear sort of *zing* that distinguishes the very best this style has to offer.

Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale from Flying Dog Brewery,yet another first. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this brew's got a 1.5 finger thick that caps off a clear, amberish yellow body complimented by droopy lacing

I'm getting aromas of straight up HOPS!

Tastes like hops, quite certainly. I'm also getting a minute bit of, dare I say, malt sweetness. If it weren't for that balancing factor, this brew may have been above my IBU tolerance. Its refreshing all in all.

Mouthfeel is clean and smooth. Not very much lingering elements such as hop oil.


Overall a 3.5 for Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale from Flying Dog Brewery. It was more tame than I thought it was going to be, which is fine by me. I'm slowly, just now starting to get into IPAs and APAs. I enjoyed this since it wasn't too extreme, the malt taste did its job awesomely. I'll probably get this brew again.

3.74/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. Label says 237A14.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a spackly sheet of surface foam. Non-resilient lacing slides quickly down the glass.

S- Decent blend of bready malt and mild herbal hops.

T- Bitter from front to back with the bready malt creating a good backdrop. Dry finish.

M- Slightly sharp from the hops with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- A nice amount of hop bitterness keeps this one drinking nicely. Nothing stands out in particular but it's good for what it is.

O-

4.01/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance- Golden and copper, cloudy appearance. Medium head with a little lacing.

Smell- Floral hop aroma. Grassy/pine.

Taste- Nice citrus flavor with light grapefruit and orange. Good malt flavor to balance the hop presence which is slightly more than most pale ales.

Mouthfeel- Light, drinkable, refreshing.

Overall- A light but complex beer that is great for those who are just getting into craft beers. A beer that can be enjoyed one after another.
