COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Dog Double Pale Ale Back by popular demand, our original "Wild Dog Release" is back, and this time itís 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.

12oz bottle. hue is rich mahogany with hints of ruby. it looks a little thicker than most FD brews. head is fluffy and thick. lacing is apparent. aromas are thick; full of brown sugar, HOPS, spruce, pine sap, a hint of toasted malts here. i could see this topping pancakes and replacin my aunt jemimas. i also get an aroma of the way that chewy caramel or taffy tastes. itís pretty nice. it tastes thick, and mirrors the aromas almost perfectly, but adding a slight oaky-dryness. dbl dog finishes slightly bitter, but not too offensive, just appropriate. the one bit of confusion here is in the name. i had wild dog, and it tasted nothing similar. i much prefer the sequel here.

The beer is a very hazy, dark apricot amber color with a small white head. Strong citrus hop smell - grapefruit for sure. The flavor is buttermilk biscuits, grapefruits, and lemons. The palate is med. - full. Overall a great beer.

Cybercat (4029) - Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2007
Wildly hoppy! Color is rich cloudy brown, promising an excellent brew. The very aroma is loaded with hoppiness and has hints of evergreen. Flavor is very hoppy and will overwhelm anyone not used to such a beer. Surprisingly, it is not super-bitter, but very drinkable if you like your beers hoppy. Recommended to all hop fanatics.

12oz bottle, as the reincarnated Double Dog, this treats me more as an IIPA rather than American strong, dark copper color with small white head, delightfully strong nose of citrus and floral just what i had hoped for, Alcohol is not really present to me as the hop profile is immense, a great brew very pleased i got to grab some.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2007
This beer is excellent, being both citrus-y and crisp in flavor, despite a very ugly-duckling appearance. This beer pours a murky, cloudy, dull appearance with good head formation. It is the ugliest beer Iíve liked...ever. Aroma is very bitter with lots of pineapple sweetness. Flavor is more delicious over-ripe pineapple with lots of dry bitterness. This beer is very crisp for the style; mouthfeel is not at all sticky despite lots of sweetness. This beer also has a substantial warming presence. Excellent.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2007
Hazed copper, thick creamy off white head. Fresh hoppy nose of crushed pine and white grapefruit, with softer notes of juicy pineapple and sweet malt. Pine resin bitterness up front that slowly unfolds into a peppered grapefruit and earthy tone. Full bodied, medium carbonation, in your face bitter finish. D-IPA all the way here. Hop fix heaven without a doubt...

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 6, 2007
THOUGHTS: The aroma was nice except for some underlying thing I couldnít put a finger.Flavor was a littl too one sided. This is almost an example of hops gone bad. There are plenty of hoppy beers that I like, but they have some malt balance. The initial flavor is pretty good but the finish is too full of hops. Pretty good, but was hoping for better. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark orange-copper with a small, off-white head that lasted for a while and left good lacing. The aroma was mostly heavy pine and grapefruit hops. Some light alcohol was also noticeable along with a very light something or other that was unpleasant to me. Hardly any malt. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and moderately to heavily bitter, while the finish was moderate to heavy sweetness and heavy to harsh bitterness with a long duration. The body was medium to full and so dry it almost made my tongue go numb with fizzy carbonation and a metallic and light lacoholic finish.

MrBunn (2572) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2007
UPDATED: APR 7, 2007 Bottle. Wonderful aroma of hops with all their pine and citrus splendor. Body is a deep amber/ light copper and has a one finger head covering up top. Flavor starts out OK with a little bit of a caramel sweet malt character, but then falls apart as the hops go absolutely wild and unbalance the whole thing. I like a lot of hops and a nice bitter finish, but this one doesnít work.

American Strong Ale? Seriously? This screams IIPA to me. Pours a dark and murky orange. Aroma is very floral with citrus hops and a slight nose of sulphur, maybe the bottle is bad? The taste is citrus hops with very little malt to make out. Itís quite bitter but hides the abv well. Pretty solid IIPA, I mean ASA.
