Flying Dog "Doggie Style"
Flying Dog Brewery - Frederick, Maryland USA
American Pale Ale (ABV 5.5%) (IBU 35)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.4/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a hazy golden dark amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that reduced to a thin film with a medium collar allowing for some good spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a straw malt, a floral hop and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit) and a bit of honey.

The taste was a mild malty sweet with a note of caramel from the start and finished mildly bitter with a very light sweetness and had notes of honey and citrus towards the end. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow with a nice mild bitter citrus ending.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a semi-dry texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall a very well put together Pale Ale, just the right amount of bitter and sweet making it a very enjoyable and drinkable brew...
