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, 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 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...

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.

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.

Lots of hops and warming alcohol. This one just doesnít have the polish. A bit rough to drink with an herbal / burnt caramel flavor.

outside of the gonzo, this is top notch for the brewery...aroma and flavor of abundant floral and bitter hops...very biting and somewhat boozy...nice hazy golden, amber body...nice palate; this is a huge beer that only suffers because it is somewhat hard to drink

freekyp (1949) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2007
Another supremely hoppy imperial IPA disguised under a different name. Potent alcohol, strong whiskey notes, and uber-bitter grapefruity hop finish. Is it good?: yup. Is it groundbreaking?: no way. Enough of this already. There is more to beer than being "extreme". As good as this is (and it is good), it bores me. Typical of the "over-the-top" American beer movement. Iím more impressed by branching out (gruit!, double white ale!!) than attempting to leapfrog countless others who have tried their hand at an uber hoppy monster ale.

Pours a hazy yellow orange color with a white head. Aroma is of some malts with citrus hops. Flavor is malty with a moderate bitter hop finish.
