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.

Silphium’s hiccup-inspiring offering at a tasting that I hosted last year. Really cool bottle, but, overall, a quite bland Double Pale Ale. The high alcohol was present throughout, actually covering some of the hoppiness that i was craving from it. Malts were caramelly with tingly alcohol. Some pininess and sappiness snuck through but would have been incredible to taste more.

This is a pretty big brew. I found I smelled the alcohol more than I actually tasted it. I was expecting more malt flavor, but this is still pretty tasty.

Cloudy appearance, copper color with a slight orange hue, generous & soft off-white head, nice lacing around the glass, nose well-balanced with both hoppiness & maltiness in the aroma, notes of pine & earth, full-bodied, smooth & drinkable, very well-balanced body of flavors as well, lots of bitter hoppiness, dry & sticky, excellent malt profile to back it all up, dry & bitter finish with more notes of hops & malt, very good pale ale

BBB63 (6083) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2005
Bottle #1020: Rich golden hue topped by a big frothy slightly off-white head and outstanding lace. The aroma has notes of piney and grassy hops, grapefruit, bready malt, and a hint of pepper. The taste starts with a hoppy citric bite but quickly has a earthy and chewy backbone. A leafy and grassy nature is also part of the palate and comes off almost over-the-top. The finish has major lingering grapefruit and bitterness. The feel is subdued and sticky, more metallic and mineral character in the aftertaste than I would have liked. Nice but not great beer, missing that extra something to kick it in gear. Worth a try.

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 24, 2005
Pours brown, with a white head. Aroma is grassy hops and malts. Taste is malty, caramel, and hoppy. It’s full bodied and with a long aftertaste.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2005
Lively sweet hop aroma. Head dies quick but leaves some nice lacing. Dark copper color. Full bodied ale, very sweet up front but quickly balances with a bright citrus and estery hop flavor. Some may find this cloying, not me. Not too much flavor from the malt, but the heavy body makes up for it. Finish is clean, slightly hoppy. Flying Dog finally pulled it off and made a really good beer.

radiomgb (2262) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2005
Bottle. Orange-brown in colour. The aroma was of citrus hops, some mild spices and malt near the back. The flavour was of mild citrus, caramel, some earth and some alcohol. Medium body, high carbonation. Finishes is medium length, some alcohol heat.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - APR 15, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2005 Wow. It’s a pity Flying Dog doesn’t do this one all the time. Excellent strong ale. Bottled September 2004, No. 8506. Pours a hazy brown with an inch-thick creamy head. Wonderful aroma of hops and spice, maybe a touch of dried fruit. Flavor is a rich, complex bittersweet mixture of raisins, plums, warm alcohol and malt with a strong hop presence. What a great beer.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 12, 2005
Woody aroma with strong hops, touch of spice in the nose. Alcohol and malts show late. Appearance was slightly hazy, with white blanket on top. Initially very bitter, with time more fruity (plums). Warming alcohol added extra dimension. Decent, complex, big brew.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 11, 2005
The beer withdraws from the 750ml brown bottle a glassy deep mahogany color with a mountainous head that is light tan in color and the texture semi-creamy, after its eventual demise the lace leaves a thick and sticky sheet to cling mightily to the glass. Nose has a delectable hop floral aroma along with a sweet cotton candy like tone, fresh and crisp, makes your mouth water. Start is quite sweet, not cloying mind you with the grain profile pronounced; the top is fair to middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is moderate in acidity, the hops are delightfully spicy and the 9 percent ABV is felt in the aftertaste and the tummy as it warms you through, a fine drinking beer and one I found delightful to drink, wish I had bought more.
