COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours up a rich very dark golden with a very large, bubbly, well retained off white head. Aroma is scumptous with very big pine notes, a bit of alcohol and a touch of malt. Flavor is not as hoppy as the aroma suggest. That said there is enjoyable hop bitterness, but also some significant carmel maltiness as well. Very well hidden alcohol. Good stuff and a paradigm shift for Flying Dog.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 A hop-headís delight! Hazy gold color with a decent frizzy head, this has a hop aroma that attacks you. Pine, grapefruit, orange, all aggressively leap from the drink. Good bitter stuff, carrying the same hop tastes. Iíd have given a higher overall rating, but I had a hard time finding the malts here. I didnít think Flying Dogs had this in them. League of Strange Beer Drinkers approved!

Big hop bite and a bitterness that lingers into the finish. Nicely balanced by the malt backbone. Very nicely done. League of Strange Beer Drinkers approved!

Dark gold to copper pour with a thin off-white head. Floral, citrusy hop aroma. Lots of malt in the flavor, and also hints of light dried fruits. Good hop bitterness to balance out the maltiness. A very fine brew.

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2005
Thanks to Goldtwins for this one. Bottle #1033 This is one of Flying dogs better efforts. Big, bold and hoppy, this starts with a deep gold pour that provides plenty of malt and hop aroma. Some sweetness and alcohol, but overall not too shabby.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2007 I could smell the hops from the minute I unlodged the cork (and I do mean unlodge since it required a corkscrew). Dark golden and slightly hazy appearance. The smell is very promising. Hops are similar to 90 minute but more smoothed out by the malt. The malt is initially good in being able to carry the hop but then gets carried away and becomes cloyingly sweet. Each sip confirms this. Aroma and initial taste are good, but the sweetness on the finish is overdone. re-rate march í07 12oz bottle - much more balanced. Big hops and big sweet fruity malt. Well done.

Terminus (3148) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 31, 2005
bottle #94-shared with whaleman-thanks to my secret santa for sending this brew my way. pours a rich cpooer hue with a small off-white rocky head. resiny, piney sugary hop aroma. flavors were very hoppy-resiny and piney with a touch of sweetness. high bitterness. pretty straight forward but effective. easily the best FD beer so far. I wish they would make something like this as a regular. THis beer is kinda like double bastard with a dose more hops. a very nice ASA.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Copper body with a ruby tone and a thick and foamy off-white head. Very fresh, big hoppy nose with notes of grapefruit, mango, juniper and a fruity malt and crystal malt underbelly. Very hoppy, resinous flavor with lots of fresh evergreen qualities. Toasty malt background. This is a hop monster. Screams DIPA all the way. Whatever the style designation, Flying Dog hit the nail squarely on the head with this one.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 29, 2005
750 ml corked and caged bottle pours a hazy glowing amber-copper with a thick creamy off-white head that leaves a nice lace in my glass. Fresh hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pine, resinous sticky pineapple and grapefruit flavors , has a full thick, sticky and slightly syrupy mouthfeel that finishes with a lingering hop bitterness, nice.

WabashMan (1007) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2007 Iím usually not crazy for the Flying Dog brews, but this one stands out among their products. Big, hoppy, rich, almost vinous flavors. A nice burgundy color and a good head with lovely lace. Really their best Iíve had.
