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.

A very nicely balanced beer considering how hoppy and strong the beer was. Nice melony malt prescence. This beer doesnít 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 !!!

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2005
A citrus/malt aroma, opaque copper/orange, and a little toffee head. Full malt flavour is noted then hops present themselves. Medium bodied, well balanced and some of the alcohol is apparent. Nice one! Thanks wolhfs.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2005
Hazy reddish amber w/ generous, creamy dark beige head. Big, fresh grapefruit aroma w/ notes of caramel in the background. Thick, chewy, very viscous feel. Flavour is sweet & malty (caramel, cookie dough) w/ a fresh hoppy character & fruity notes. Alcohol is a little too present. Overall a little unbalanced.

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 3, 2005
Thanks to Wohlfs for this one! Sweet grapefruity nose, slightly astringent, a bit vinous. I donít know what is going on here - tobacco, brown sugar sweetness. Nice smooth body but something about this beer strikes me as odd.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2005 trappist; sept. 04í; 8254 / worst cork experience ever. half the cork broke when i tried releasing it from the bottle, then - donít ask - i ended up having to poke the remaining supercork down into the contents, which caused a lot of corky foam and spillage. oh, and some of the glass broke. ugh. GOD knows if i swallowed bits of glass, but it was worth it... / really dark amber body with orange highlight. awesome thick, sparkly, bone white head that loves to lounge. good, chaotic lacing. some things look like floaties, but itís probably cork and glass... / delicious, sticky, cremey, and smooth brew. flavors of pine, wood, grapefruit, orange, caramel, smoke, and yeah itís hoppy, but thereís lots of malt... / itís sorta barleywine, but itís so hoppy it shouldnít be... itís not an IIPA because of the superior malt presence that seems to want to compete with the hoppiness, i suppose. i agree with the label, actually, DOUBLE PALE ALE... / this gives off some tasty burps, and it has a great, big, aftertaste. iíd do it again. this is a greaaat beer!

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2005
Thick creamy off-white head leaving good lacing. Reddish amber body. Full aroma of pine and cascade citrus hops, along with a balancing caramel cookie backing. Strong aroma, and seemingly well rounded. Taste is a bit more of the same. It seems well balalnced. Hops are a piney citrus thing with a touch of soap and some orange in the finish, but there is no bite or huge hopocity. Malt is there to sweeten it up, but I am not struck with a strong sweetness. Silky and resiney mouthfeel. Overall, Iím a fan. Sign me up for one more.

Bottle 8666. One tough cork to extract.Strong soapy pine resin aroma amd taste. Sweet. Not much malt balance. Decent but the pine becomes tiring.

BrockLanders (772) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2007 Bottle from Coaltrains in CO Springs. Pours a hazy golden orange with a mid-sized, off-white head. The aroma is interesting...grapefruity, pine, floral hops, light doughy malts, and some lemon to boot. The flavor is notably bitter right up front, but some sweet maltiness is there plus some caramel-toffeeish notes. Decently balanced. Fairly full bodied mouthfeel, with some syrupy stickiness. Very bitter in the end....tasty. Definitely my favorite Flying Pooch ale so far.
