    Not sure if this has already been posted or discussed here, but my buddy told me about this yesterday and sent me a link to Flying Dog's blog. Definitely interested in trying this soon.

    Here is a link to their blog: Flying Dog Blog

    Per the Blog:
    "*Dialed back the Caramel Malt by 40%
    *Increased the whirlpool addition of Cascade hops from 8.5 to 20 pounds
    *Added Simcoe and Citra dry hop additions to the existing Cascade dry hop, while increasing the total dry hop by 14 pounds

    The result is a more complex hop aroma, slightly lighter body, and, overall, a better-balanced beer. Our brewers were able to bring out the most desirable characteristics in each hop variety in this new recipe. As soon as we tried the first pilot batch we were hooked.

    We have already begun shipping this new recipe for Doggie Style out to our wholesalers, so you'll see it on our shelves soon."

    Yep, I thought it was nicely balanced as it was. I think the term has come to be misunderstood. 'Balanced' for a clientele that must have their face blown off with hops is not my idea of it.
    Wish they'd left it alone.

    They didn't need to do that with this beer. There are almost no "traditional" pale ales anymore that are readily available. My brother is going to be disappointed. It was one of his favorites.
     
  5. Hmm, I may like this beer a lot more now...anyone know if this will be noted on the 6 pack somehow? Not a huge flying dog fan (most are nothing great) but this could be an interesting pale ale and is different enough from the old one to be considered a new beer.

    Sorry to everyone who enjoyed the old recipe, maybe instead they should have just made a new beer, a hoppy pale ale / session ipa of sorts.
