look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Very non-descript IPA, not very much flavor besides a vague bitterness and some oily hop acidity, heavy on the malt and not exactly a refreshing option

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from fresh 16 oz can.
Look was a very nice copper, with a large head that dissipated quickly, with a bit of lacing that lasts till the end.
Smell was of citrus, grapefruit mostly, and some pine.
Tasted very nice, with good hoppiness, not overly bitter.
Feel was good, smooth, very easy drinking for 7% ABV.
Overall, very nice IPA offering.

Pours a slightly hazy orangish honey color with a thick white cap that lingers and leaves good lacing. Aroma is citrus hop forward. Flavor follows with lots of citrus and a good hop bite. Feel is fresh and crisp, well carbonated. Overall a decent beer without being special.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a light copper with a moderate white head. This is a solid, citrusy (predominantly grapefruit) IPA with a caramel malt backbone. A decent example of an old-school American IPA.

Some have said this is underwhelming, however I find it to be a really nice, smooth drink. First drink I had from Flying Dog, will definitely look into there other flavors. Lots of grapefruit, not overly filling.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a tall clear pint glass. Hazy, faded gold color. Soapy, thick white head that dissipates quickly, good lacing. Moderately-high carbonation.

Lots of citrus and tropical hops in the smell. Pineapple, kiwi, cantaloupe, oranges, grapefruit, other notes of pine, resin, and grain, along with herbal and floral notes.

Piney, hoppy composition that is not too dominating, but has a bitter aftertaste and sweet malty balance. Notes of grapefruit, oranges, pineapple, grain, and other citrus and tropical flavors. Feels richly smooth.

A respectable American IPA. Exactly what I was looking for, an easy drinking IPA. Well done flying dog. This is a good one to mass produce/distribute.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A pretty much straight-down-the-middle IPA. Aromas and flavor track closely, with lots of piney and citrus notes (mostly grapefruit). There's some balance in the flavor, but it's still on the aggressive West Coast side.
