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.

Heavy, sweet, resinous, fruity (pineapple, grapefruit) nose; slick, sticky and sweet malt front end with flavor to match; some pine, wood, and toffee notes; not a huge, but a substantial bitterness on the finish to go with the huge hop aromas and flavors; pretty balanced, complex and tasty

Pours a rusty amber with a large creamy head that sticks around. Aroma is big piney and citrusy hops with a strong sticky sweet malt. Flavor is a mix of hard caramel and piney and citrusy hops. There is also a little smokeyness that I think comes from the deep caramel and bitterness mixing. Interesting with the deep hard caramel backing and very good but it just doesn’t beg me to drink it as much as some other IIPAs and American Strongs.

orange to red in color, 2" 0ff white head, smells of sweet spice, taste is sweet with a little alc bite on the end, med-heavy body, not enough carbonation, nothing to back up the sweetness, might be good with some waffles.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2005
dark color, big head. nice pine aroma, not as overpowing as some brews. i found the flavoe disappointing (perhaps because it is a bit medicinal). however, i could get used to it. a good entry.

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - MAY 2, 2005
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 (6154) - 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.
