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.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 12 oz bottle. Poured a murky-cloudy orange with a slight head. The aroma was very strong...and scared me. The taste attacked my tongue without mercy and left an aftertaste of some sort of sour fruit. A monster of a beer.RERATE:::: on draft at pony with Linh. 5 years, 1 month and 9 days later and Iím interested to see the change in my palate, or perhaps in the beer itself. Pours a deep, hazy orange body with a soapy white lacing - looks like the cask pour. Aroma is cinnamon and nutmeg. Linh says it reminds her of a chai tea. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of ginger, tea, cinnamon, lots of hot booze, and bitter hops. I think this would be interesting if they dialed back the alcohol a bit. Overall too boozy and a bit unbalanced, but still unique. +0.4

12oz bottle. Hazy orange with a medium head. Fair lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and oily resin. Taste bring out the caramel malt. It actually has a fare backbone of malt. Oily and alcoholic texture. Medium-full body. Iíd almost say that this is reaching for the plinys, but it falls just short.

20-Mar-07 12oz bottle, Double Dog. Iíll be damned. I didnít realize this was the Wild Dog. Iím glad itís much more affordably priced now. Seems to have not lost much, if anything, with the growth in production and for that iím thankful. Hazy cherry amber color with thin but lasting off-white head that sheets lace. Aroma is huge and inviting with a nice mix of citrus and pine plus touches of sweet bubblegum, some rosemary, and light backnotes of cat piss and petroleum (?). Mouthfeel is huge, viscous, and chewy with resinous biting hops. Alcohol comes through with an unfortunately harsh bite in the finish and is the only serious fault Iím finding with the stuff...then again, it IS a 10.5% brew so thereís bound to be some alcohol presence. The flavor is round and full with a solid maltiness found in chewy marzipan, apricot, and cracker flavors. Really a unique brew and a nice job by the brewers of asserting this beer as a huge pale ale, not a generic IIPA. The price (now) is right, too. I have to admit that Iím shocked by the score Iím giving this brew.

Orange-hued red pour has an instantly lively nose of fresh, assertive hops suggesting citrus and pine. Palate is heavy with lively carbonation. Flavor is really a treat with an initial hop bite that mellows through some sweet caramel malts, and ends with a lasting dryness. This definitely resembles some of the best recent examples of American barleywines with an excellent hop bitterness and malt sweetness interplay. If not the best brew from Flying Dog, then very close.

MikeHernandez (50) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2007
Aroma is heavy hops, spruce, grapefruit. Average, frothy, white head that is mostly lasting. Cloudy body, tiny body particles, very dense. Orangish red in hue, could call it amber. Initial flavor is sweet and slightly acidic, bitter finish, duration of finish is long. Full bodied, creamy, average carbonation, bitter finish. Powerful hopping with excellent malt balance covers all traces of the high alcohol content of this ale, well done. I was nervous this would be overhopped, turns out I had nothing to worry about. Good job by flying dog brewery!

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 18, 2007
12 Oz Bottle. Crispy bready rich hop aroma of citrus oils, creamy fragrant pine and volatile florals. A great concoction of hoppiness. Lightly hazed pour of orange-amber, with a deluxe silky soap of banana-tinted cream. Sticky sheets of lacing. Flavor is a warming sweet glow of banana skin, lime peel, candied figs and pear nectar. Itís along the lines of the hop-heavy aroma, but melds nicely with the malt character and isnít destructively bitter. The hop flavors were well built here and in combination with the malt, make a luscious light fruitness. Finishes a tough sticky sweet, but a mouthful of hop cones help dry it out. For 10.5% alcohol itís extremely adept at concealing it! A very nice beer. Thanks Josh!

Cloudy, orange amber. Smell of hops, pine, lemon, grass, malt, caramel, alcohol, rye, grapefruit and alcohol. Tastes the same but even better. Very thick and chewey. Wonderful hop bitterness. I love it. Must get more.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Bottle: Copper colored pour with an off white head. Aroma, earthy and citrus hop notes, some hints of pine as well, with some caramel in the back ground. Flavor, caramel up front, a nice earthy bitterness on the finish, some piny notes as well. Really good stuff, I was surprised.

This beer is now available in 4 packs of 12 oz bottles, tasted it at the brewery. Very delicious. Too heavy to have more than 2. High alcohol content, more hoppy but not overpowering. If you go to the flying dog brewery, tell Devon I said hi. She knows her shit.
