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.

TimE (3827) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 25, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2007 Creamy white head. Deep amber copper color. Citrusy nose with a good dose of caramel malt and apple and peaches representing the hops. Thick body that is too sweet for my liking with apples and oranges. Dry moderately bitter finish. I found a sample was more than enough. The thick sweetness just got to me.

Creamy lasting light brown head. Pretty red amber liquid. Sweet hop aroma. Flavour is hops, thick sweetness and hops. Delicious.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Big citrusy and resiny hop aroma, solid caramel malt, light fruitiness with peppery alcohol. Ruby amber color, dense beige head, a few yeast chunkies floating around. Intense flavor, lots of sweet caramel malt balanced by resiny hop bitterness, alcohol flavors are more noticeable. Lingering bitterness in the finish. Full body with moderate carbonation, Basically a double IPA with more malt character, which I guess makes it a barleywine? Either way, it’s pretty good.

Ah, very kind gift from my old boss. Big as I might have expected. Wild to be sure. The mix of hops and malt is at once familiar and new in an alluring way to me. Rich and robust and worthy of the wild Steadman artwork.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2007 <P>June 2007 Double Dog Pale Ale, small bottle shared by DuctTape. Bah, stupid name changes! Oh well at least it was a good one. Golden amber body with a small creamy white head (3+). Big hoppy aroma, the profile is interesting with lightly leafy and green notes to the hops. Hard to elaborate on why, but the hops where just different enough to make me stand up and take notice. Pleasant bitterness with a light resiny character and a very interesting hop profile throughout. Average palate. Alcohol does not give any indication that it is this strong. This is lovely, but I could see it becoming a bit much after a bottle or two. Very nice re-discovery, thanks Steve! 8/3+/8-9/3/16 - 4.0 <P>RBSG 2005 as Wild Dog. One that got away, missed this at Radekfest this year. Amber body, moderate off white head. very nice hoppy aroma succumbs to raucous alcohol wave. Hoppy resiny flavour with a caramel malt riptide deep below. Dry hoppy finish, medium palate. Interesting. 7/4/7/4/15 - 3.7

Dogbrick (9096) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2005
On draught at Boston’s Bistro in Dayton. Hazy reddish orange color with a thick light tan head. Sticky rings of lacing. Lots of citrusy fruit in the nose along with hops. Medium-bodied and soft around the edges with muted but tasty hops, pine and more citrus flavor. The finish is zesty with peppery hops. After quite awhile of not bothering with Flying Dog I have been pretty impressed with the Gonzo Porter and now this.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2005
Cloudy orange hoppy (citrusy and piney) with sweet caramel maltiness offset by more hoppiness. Lingers very nicely - quiteenjoyable.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Bottle #1600 from Liquor Barn, Louisville, KY. Pours orange brown with a medium creamy beige head. Lots of hops in the aroma: grapefruit and light pine. Flavor is sweet malts and of course, the big hop bite. I like it and it is, to me, easily Flying Dog’s best beer.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2007 New rating, I previously had this as Wild Dog. My notes were pretty much the same. However, this one had a little more up front grapefruit. Nicely done. Purchased my bottle in Paducah, KY on my return trip from the Nooga. Bottle number 1506. Pours a dark and hazy amber. A thin and persistent tan colored head. The aroma is sweet caramel and some hay. There is also grapefruit, peanuts and some pine. The taste is awesome. Notes of caramel, oak and vanilla. There is also bread crust, muted grapefruit and a little bit of pine. I love the malt backbone here. I imagine that the few months of aging probably smoothed out this big boy. I am very impressed. Flying Dog should consider making this a regular offering, but with a lower price tag.
