Commercial Description
Dry Hopped with a load of Cascade hops grown in the Pacific Northwest. Doggie Style has enough hop character to satisfy hop-heads, but isn’t overpoweringly hoppy. It’s brilliant amber-copper color and pleasant malt flavor comes from the addition of Carastan malts.

    An ale with the smoothness of a lager. A light to dark color accents its heavy yet airy body.

    [Best served in a Shaker glass]

    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 a very enjoyable and drinkable brew...

    I think flying dog is a pretty sweet brewery with some great products, but I didn't like this beer as much as I thought I would. I still give it a good rating because it is quality, but it doesn't make my list of top pale ales. 2 pts for having a sweet label, -5 for overpromising and underdelivering.

    This is a great MD brew. One of the better pale ales you can get in the mid atlantic. There are subtle flavors that linger on the tongue and make you really enjoy it

    Nice strong pale ale. Name speaks for itself...I can really taste the malts at the finish and it went great with my pizza. Definetly going to go back for seconds.

    A very nice hoppy ale. Spicey up front with a nice "not to intense" bitter finish. Small head but intense aroma that prepares you nicely for the beer.
