Flying Dog Pale Ale

Flying Dog Pale Ale

Gonzo journalist and long time friend of Flying Dog owner George Stranahan, Hunter S Thompson was a large influence on the creation of Flying Dog brand. The unique labels and branding are the work of artist co-conspirator Ralph Steadman.
Style Pale Ale
Country American Beers
ABV 5.5%
Serving Temp 6 to 8°C
Bottle Size 355ml

The Flying Dog Pale Ale is a great example of the American Pale Ale style. Nicely balanced and very drinkable, this pale ale keeps the hop-heads happy while pleasing those who are just looking for a pleasant drink.

A good dose of Cascade hops give off those fantastic Pacific Northwest notes: lemon, orange, and sweet grapes. A nutty and caramel maltiness is contrasted by a grassy hop-bitterness that lingers just long enough. This sparkling amber-coloured American pale ale is a well-made and highly enjoyable beer.

  • Always Good

    Review by Ninja Terrier

    Flying Dog is a brewery who's beers are always looked forward to by me. This brew delivered all that I was expecting from this great brewery. (Posted on 13/04/2017)

  • Nice beer

    Review by Dead Derek

    This is a good quality beer, not too strong or hoppy, just pleasant to drink! Slightly preferred the same brewer's canned beers, but they seem to be mainly IPAs, so this is a really good alternative to those. (Posted on 26/03/2017)

  • Drinkable

    Review by Rich

    Not overly heavy on the hops for an American pale, so good for a session! (Posted on 21/02/2017)

  • Great Beer

    Review by James

  • Delicious IPA

    Review by Jim

    This is one of my favourites i've ordered from here, would highly recommend to anyone who likes a good hoppy IPA (Posted on 24/11/2016)

  • Very nice

    Review by Andrew

    I wanted something a little lighter than the IPAs I've been drinking recently and this pretty much fit the bill.

    A little bolder than I had actually expected but very drinkable and something I'd happily buy again (Posted on 06/10/2016)

  • Solid pale American style

    Tasty and refreshing American craft ale. Fruity enough to pack a decent flavour hit. Particularly tasty when quaffed from a Hunter S Thompson inspired glass! (Posted on 13/05/2016)

  • Packed full of flavour

    Review by good_head

  • Run of the Mill Pale Ale

    Review by Ay Pee Horne

    Not one of Flying Dog's best efforts. That said, if you're looking for a refreshing, sessionable pale ale then this is probably going to do the job. It's just that it doesn't really stand out at all. A bit bland. (Posted on 11/06/2015)

  • well balanced beer

    Review by wreck

    Light, refreshing, hoppy... lovely well balanced IPA that is very drinkable. Maybe a bit too much so!! Lovely. (Posted on 14/04/2015)

  • Take it doggie style...

    Review by RachB

    Take it doggie style and not like a Raging Bitch. Raging Bitch by Flying Dog is a firm fave, this one will be too... (Posted on 16/03/2015)
