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.

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.

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.

Pretty good light orange spice flavored hoppiness. Light filling sensation. Slightly bitter. Nice cloudy gold beer. A good wood working beer. Better than blue moon imo as a orangesque beer. 1in head on heavy pour. Overall good satisfying ipa. Will buy again.
