Flying Dog Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale

Fresh on the heels of a legendary American Pale Ale, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, is Flying Dog Brewery’s Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale.  It doesn’t have much of an aroma.   There are some slightly hops scents there, but not much.   It has a light-to-medium weight body, and citrus dominates the flavor, with orange fading to bitter orange peel in the finish.  Not much of the pine that I’d expect from an American Pale Ale.  It’s a decent beer, and maybe I’m not doing it justice by reviewing it directly after the Sierra Nevada, but I just don’t like this one as much.

I give it a 3.7 out of 5.
