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.

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.

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.

strong aroma-- sweet and hoppy, kind of malty. acidic, hoppy, carmel, almost like a mix between an amber, a fruit beer and an IPA. coats the mouth. ... ya, i’d fly the dog again...

shadey (1896) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 7, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2007 Rating for Wild Dog: Ruby red color. Very pretty. Creamy white head. Very interesting aroma. Some sweetness, some hops, hints of alcohol. Odd hoppy flavor. Alcohol twang. 7/4/4/3/12

RERATE: For Double Dog Pale Ale in 12oz bottle. Pour is a deep dark orange color with a nice white head of sticky lace. Aroma is strong and up-front hops with a strong caramel malt backdrop. The flavor is strong bitter hops with a good caramel backbone that is able to keep up with the obvious hop level. I don’t know that I would say the 10% alcohol is well-hidden, but it is hardly as dominant as some have reported. I would say this is one of Flying Dog’s better offerings.

Ungstrup (29277) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 7, 2005
A hazy amber beer with a light brown head. The aroma is sweet hoppy - like sticking your head into a hop plant. The flavor is sweet hoppy with notes of hop acids, caramel, leading to a powerful, sweet sticky and slightly dry end.

Oakes (12447) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2005
Slightly hazy copper-amber colour. Some woody hop notes and crystal malts. Resiny, with lots of crystal malt, and a little toasty.

BeerandBlues2 (9667) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2005
Bottled September 2004, no. 8398. Pours caramel nut brown with copper and amber tones and a huge off-white frothy head. Produces thick and clingy lacing. Fragrant floral hop aroma with a strong pine nose. Initial draw is alcohol caramel nalt with a dry hoppiness that trys to steal your breath, then finishes dry and malty with faint yeast notes. The flavor mellows as you drink more and the hoppiness seems less hoppy but is still very noticeable. Warm full-bodied palate that starts dry and somewhat spicy yet contains a subtle creaminess.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - APR 5, 2005
A very nicely balanced beer considering how hoppy and strong the beer was. Nice melony malt prescence. This beer doesn’t overdo it, but manages to be damn flavorful. I did enjoy it.

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 5, 2005
Bottle. Hazy copper colour with a off-white head. Heavy hoppy, pine, light sweet aroma and a hoppy bitter dry taste. Medium to full body and a long very bitter dry finish. Great !!!
