Very good overall brew.
Classic pale ale flavor.

Cannot really taste the malt, so malt lovers look elsewhere, but that is to be expected from a beer of this variety.

Decent head with some lacing (don't expect too much though).

Citrus undertones with a refreshing dry finish.

Great beer you can drink in great quantities.

Good work Flying Dog.

12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass.

A: Amber/orange color with terrific foamy head. Retention and lacing were fantastic.

S: Prominent smell of generous citrus and floral hops.

T: Very good balance of bready malt and bitter hop taste...hints of grapefruit. Dry/bitter finish, very crisp.

M: Body is on the medium/lighter-side, and very refreshing and crisp. Carbonation is quite ample.

D: Terrific APA, I found this to be very refreshing and sessionable. This is definitely one I will remember and plan on making a go-to.
