Doggie Style (Flying Dog)

This classic Pale Ale was one of my contrasting pales in Beer 101. It was set with the Boulevard in the tasting set. While both have the caramel flavors and colors, this has a different hop profile.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This amber-colored brew had a a thick foamy off-white head. Bitter hops and caramel malt were the main smells.

Taste: It was a little pithy hoppy, that sort of flat (yet acid) bitter. It had a clean sweetness. It's not a wild pale ale, but it has the flavors that push it into a different class than your standard brews. It's a solid pale.

From the Flying Dog site:
The alpha of the pack, Doggie Style complements a wide range of foods. Flavor notes: Grassy, citrus, and slight perfume hop aromas with subtlety sweet malt body.
