3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours hazy, copper colored, with a decent sized off white head that settles, some lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, floral hops. Flavor is grapefruit, pine, orange, caramel malt, bitter hops. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, finishes tongue numbing bitter. Rock solid, though nothing really sets it apart.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bouteille de 12 oz achetée chez Oak Tree Discount (South Plainfield, NJ). Arôme: Odeur fortement houblonné (Agrumes et fleurs). Apparence: La couleur est ambrée voilée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col beige mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’ananas et de pamplemousse. Longue durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est plein. Forte effervescence en bouche. L’arrière goût est astringent. Malheureusement cette bière est trop houblonnée pour moi. (Rating #960)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Dark amber color. Big fruity hop nose, full of spoiled oranges and pine sap. Thick, a bit frothy, big on the palate. Flavors of sweet pine, sour grapefruit and lemon citrus. Bitter and coarse all over, with a wonderful oily sap and juicy orange finish, very dry and bitter. A good beer from a brewery I tend not to like.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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. it’s 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.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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 I’ve 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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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...
