3.05/5 rDev -16%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A- Poured into a tall pilsner glass. Foamy, two finger head that retains ok and laces adequately. Color is deep golden to amber and translucent.
S- Somewhat hoppy, but very faint. Hops are not distinct enough to pick out flavors, just slightly on the citrus side.
T- Very watery and not very distinct. Just like the smell, it is very faint and nondescript. Slight hops bitterness is present, but not prominent.
M- Light and carbonated. Easy to drink weight. Kind of watery. Could put these down for hours if there was a taste profile.
Overall, I'm pretty disappointed here. Flying Dog is usually solid, but this pale ale is just average at best. Very watered down and just bland.

I tried this on tap at the Bulldog Ale House in Roselle, IL. $5 for a pint glass, but just $2 all day on Thursdays.
The beer poured a crystal clear dark amber color with a 1½ finger off-white head. Head retention was great, lasting several minutes, and there was quite a bit of slippery lacing that slid down the glass with each sip.
Mild pine, mild citrus, and mild malt aroma. Quite pleasant, actually.
This is a mild pine and citrus hop flavored beer. Good pine and grapefruit taste with some lemon in there as well. Crystal malt adds some balance but it never becomes very sweet. Bitterness is there but it's not overpowering - just 35 IBU's. I liked this beer.
Medium body with fairly high carbonation, although when I tried the bottled version the carbonation was only moderate.
Not as bitter as some pale ales, which makes it easy to drink. I found the big hop flavor without the big hop bitterness to be an interesting and welcoming touch.

a: amber copper body. three finger high thick rocky head. excellent lacing and retention.
s: citrus hops, bread, touch of pine and caramel.
t: bready up front with a semi sweet body. mainly citrus hops and caramel with a touch of brown sugar.
m: light, maybe a little too thin. good carbonation with a clean finish.
o: pretty good apa. will be buying more of these. just wish it had more of a hop profile with a fuller body.
