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.

Bottled. Beer is lightly hazy, medium amber with an average-sized, light brown, frothy, diminishing, but mostly lasting head. Clingy, lasting, creamy cuff of lace on the snifter.<P> First impression on the nose is like breaking up a hop party. The aroma is malty with a light note of toasted grain, moderate note of biscuity caramel; Hoppy with heavy notes of resin/pine, cologne-like herbal, moderate grapefruit oil, lighter notes of dried apricot and green grass; Yeasty with a light of dough; Moderate notes of alcohol.<P> The flavor is is heavily bitter, heavily sweet, light-to-moderately acidic and boozy warm with a long, lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. Light astringency on gums.<P> The beer is full, the texture is syrupy and the carbonation is lively.<P> A hot hop wall without a lot of complexity. Not bad, but not liver-worthy.

120z Double Dog - Vintage 07c - Aroma of chewy earthy hops, caramel and pine. Pours transparent copper with a small head adn decent lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a ton of pine and alcohol. Palate is tart and crisp. Tasty and eye-popping.

Bottle. Small, off-white head (completely dissapated). Cloudy dark orange body. Good lacing. Strong citrus, some grass, and light caramel were all noticed-maybe a bit too much hops and not enough malts. Good carbonation. Medium bodied. Dry textured. Light alcohol present. This is a good american strong.

Great beer if you want to feel like you just had a mouthfull of hops for the next hour. I bought a 4 pack and had to give the other three away. I liked the first few sips, but after that I only tasted the IBU’s. Dont get me wrong I like the hoppier beers, but I also enjoy balance, and this one is off to one side.

Amber/brown, cloudy, with a very robust khaki head. Grassy, hoppy nose, with a good dose of grapefuit, some caramel. Flavor is a bit musty, very citric--lots of grapefruit. Strong bitterness is balanced somewhat by a light caramel sweetness. Great, creamy mouthfeel. A worthy hop monster.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2007
12 oz bottle marked Vintage 07B. Slightly hazy deep amber body under a large beige head of moderate duration yet leaivng a nice lace. Big hoppy aroma - pine,bitter citrus, pepper, with a base of dark, ripe fruit. Medium to heavy body with some syrupy richness initially, followed by a bitter asrtringency. Very light carbonation adds to the feeling of thickness. Flavor of brown sugar, quickly steps into hthe background as a hige grapefruit bitterness takes over. The finish is long and bitter. Certainly one of the best offerings from flying dog.

This is a big beer. Really attractive looking big beer. Hazy cidery color with a thick head. Big grapefruit and pine aroma. Resinous body, a bit astringent. Big malty palate. Not bad. Alcohol totally disguised.

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!
