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.

I donít know what it is about these strong Pale ales that I love. Pours clear sticky copper with a medium sized tan/beige head. Huge grapefruit, caramel and chewy malt nose. Mouthfeel like a thick rich barleywine. Cotton candy, citrus, butter. Very smooth. Caramel, marshmallow. Bitters are well concealed behind the sweet toasted malts. Fisish is rich soft and warming with a tinge of hop/alcohol heat. Very nice.

RBSG í05 - strong grassy aroma, with some hints of malts in the background. the pour was a caramel brown, clear, and a nice white head that laced down the sides of the glass. a sweet grassy, pine flavor starts off backed up by a caramel malt center that balances things very evenly. even the aftertaste was well blended and didnt overwhelm with bitterness or sweetness. a very enjoyable brew, and no hint at all of the abv.

RBSG 05. This is one of Flying Dog’s best along with Gonzo. Medium amber with a nice sticky white head and good lace. Aroma is loaded with citrus and piney hops and backed by a fair amount of sweet caramel malts. The flavor is dominated by hops and backed by enough malt that it makes the flavor very resiny with sticky piney hops, instead of just being a hop tea. Big mouthfeel, from all the malt. As it warms it becomes a bit too thick and is almost medicinal in the taste.

TimE (3990) - 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, itís 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
