My 2nd Growler I picked up last Friday.

Poured into my Big Dog's pint glass a very nice clean/clear dark golden yellow color, very very nice carbonation, HUGE three-finger foamy white head, which lasts abit and then tapers off into some very nice sticky lacing. The nose is hoppy, with a nice touch of malts. The taste is pretty hoppy, but not like their IPAs, but very nice. nice malt blend. Medium body, with a very nice dry/bitter finish for a pale ale. Overall another pretty awesome brew from Big Dog's, thanks Dave.

On tap at Pub 365 in Las Vegas. Pours a light effervescent hue with minimal frothing. Mellow aroma replete with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile.

Pours a hearty golden color with a solid 1" of white head and above average retention. Really stuck this appearance. Aroma was hoppy, simcoe and amarillo I believe.

Good brisk hop bitterness and a light toasted pale malt body. Carbonation is dialed in and provides extra levity to the 65ibuish beer. This might be my favorite Big Dog beer. Starting to get some good evolution recipe and execution wise from these guys. Had this at that Nevada Beer festival on the Truckee River. Usual flavor descriptors of grapefruit, green needles. One of the more enjoyable hoppy hot weather beers made in Las Vegas.
