Double Dog Double Pale Ale Back by popular demand, our original "Wild Dog Release" is back, and this time it’s for good. Double Dog Double Pale Ale is a generously hopped ale with a deep red color and pours with a nice frothy head. The abundance of hops will conjure some provocative aromas with hints of raisins and citrus.

Bottle. Labeled ’Double Dog Double Pale Ale’. Fuck me, a 10.5% Pale Ale! Sorry, a "Double" Pale Ale. Pours a slightly hazy orange-copper with an average size diminishing fluffy off-white head. Very nice aroma, lots of piney hops followed by sweet malt, bread and a hint of alcohol. Flavour’s also very hoppy, lots of pine and resin, along with plenty of malt, some spices and a long bitter alcoholic finish. Nice medium body. Seems weird to call this a Double Pale as opposed to a Double IPA but whatever, it’s a damn good beer!

Hop monster. Strong aroma of hops, like a pine forest. Strong taste of hops, like chewing on a pine cone. Not necessarily bad. Alcohol is well masked by the hops. Warming, and yummy....I like alcohol. Looks good, with a little frothy white head. Ummm...yeah...this is good.

Big aroma, lots of malts and a great citrus hop finish. Real solid beer - grab a 4-pack on Tuesday and crack one open after work for four days straight. You’ll be happy on Friday and every day between.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 6, 2007
12 oz. bottle from Holiday Wine Cellars. Pours a hazed med. to dark orangey amber, with a small off-white head. Aroma is a lot like a DIPA, with a big caramel and toasty malt backbone, bold orange and pine hops. Huge malt character, brown sugar and toffee with prominent citrus and piney hops, and a spicy, astringent finish and an alcohol burn. Occurs also somewhat like a hoppy BarleyWine, Full body and smooth yet tingly carbonation.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear copper color. Head was thick, off white, and lasted forever. Attractive malty caramel aroma with grapefruity hops and a touch of alcohol. Dry on the tongue with assertive hop bitterness that lingers and lingers. Grapefruity hops mercilessly dominate the flavor, but the malty backbone is still strong. Wow I liked this one.

adavis234 (286) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2007
12 oz bottle. Deep copper pour with a two finger thick beige head. Aroma is malty and floral with hints of a fruit. Thick and creamy with a strong flavor of hops and alcohol. A delicious beer that exceeded expectations.

Suttree (5638) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Murky orangey brown, nice dense beige head. Resiny, almost cedar like aroma, maybe even some juniper, too. Thick, rich palate. Some notes of caramel up front, and a big woodsy hop finish.

ChazMania (659) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 1, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2009 Bottle, received in trade. This is a great beer that I had no expectations of. Thick and malty pour with a robust hop finish. As we say in my area, Me Gusta! Re-rated on Oct 16, 2009. Originally rated May 1, 2007. I’m lowering my score from a 4.0 to a 3.5. Maybe the recipe changed, or my palate has changed. This tastes more like a really hot boozy barleywine than a double pale. Still worth trying, but man it’s lacking balance for me right now.

DirtyMartini (194) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 1, 2007
solid offering from a brewery ive been less than impressed with in the past. nice copper color with a nice floral hop aroma. flavor was of sweet malts with a nice bitterness to follow and a citrusy/piney hop flavor. drinks rather easy and would definitely have again.

Hangover (1094) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Copper pour with a nice-sized and lasting tan head. Thick lacing. Floral hop nose with some earthy malts. Surprisingly full-bodied and creamy. Floral and pine hops up front. Malty middle, with a lot of wood and breadiness. Alcohol definitely warms towards the finish. Resinous hoppy finish, bitter. Alcohol is also in the finish, but it’s not distracting... just adds more bite to the strong hops. I love me a double and this one is up there with my favorites! I’m glad they have this in 4 packs now... I never got the bomber because it was like 13 bucks. This 4 pack was 8.
