COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2008 (Bottle) Pours slightly hazy amber with a white head. Hoppy, grassy aroma with rasin and pine. Mango, tangerine, pineapple and other fruits. Sticky malt. Hints of dried figgs and canned pears. I can imagine that it has lost some hops after two years, but still -pretty darn yummy. sweet, fruity, thick and sticky mouthfeel with a nice bitter hoppy ending. Mango. Hints of figgs and raisins. Small notes of shellfish. Medium to big body. Second try: (Bottle) Pours deep reddish amber. The aroma is of citrus/resin/floral like hops and cookie/mild caramel malt. Very fruity with tones of kiwi, mango, starfruit, pears and tangerine. Notes of creamy/doughy yeast. Some acetone alcohol warmth. Hints of vanilla. The flavour is hoppy up front with resin, grapefruit and roses. Malt brings tones of buttery cookies and caramel. Fruity in the flavour as well with tones of pineapple, apricot and orange peel. The mouthfeel is round and sticky. Light sweet with a medium to full bitter/dry palate. Medium full bodied. This is a very good example of an IIPA and one of the better, if not the best beer from this brewery.

MHED (114) - lisle, USA - NOV 10, 2006
2004 10 yr. anniversary bottle #8375 aged very nicley poured 11-106.Poured heavy forming nice frothy white creamy head.,amber red in color. Aroma of friut cake and dark cherry. Huge sweet malty flavor quickly shifts to balanced mix of floral/spice hop.finishes warm from alchohol and is a tongue peircing monster of a beer... Way more like a barley wine than a douple pale ale as the label claims. Don’t tackle the bottle alone...

Had to go to a liquor store to get this one. Fantastic, a really rich taste that lasts. Good level of bitterness to finish.

Bottle. Poured cloudy copper with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex citrus hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium bitter finish of long duration. Shared with freinds and got a positive response from all.

Cloudy amber with a tan head. Resiny pine and citrus nose, some floral notes. Big malty flavor, but remains balanced, somehow. Creamy mouthfeel. Flying Dog finally impresses me!

Tasting at Immy’s. Large bottle. Hazy orange pour with tan head. Nose is resiny orange, herbal and floral, a little bit of everything in there along with grapes. Flavor is resiny pine and herbal, mixing with the caramel malts. Creamy palate. One of the standouts at the tasting.

unclemattie (4262) - Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2006
I’ve had a 750mL bottle cellared for two years. Gave it to beerlamb for her 25th B-Day today. BOTTLE #8065 Poured a beautiful amber with a little bit floating around in it. Right from the cork, hop florals from the cork all the way to the bottlom of the rocks glass. Heavenly hop bitterness through the entire brew. From start to finish. If only every Flying Dog tasted as powerful as this masterpiece, American Double PA. A Hop Masterpiece!

(05.04.06) One pint, 9.4 oz green bottle from DiCarlo’s, Mundelein, IL. 10th anniversary limited edition no. 8695. 9% ABV. Limited edition 8695. Bottled September 2004. Poured hazy amber with long lasting large creamy white head. Soft carbonation. Intense hop bouquet. Medium bodied ale that starts with light malt sweetness. Malt, flowers and hop flavors. Smooth and rich tasting with complex character. Finishes with light malt fade and hop bitterness. Firm malt foundation. Well-balanced with edge towards hop flavor, not bitterness. An exquisite ale. Wish I had stocked up on this ale when I had a chance.
