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.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2007 I’m 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 I’ve had.

Bottle # 1981. Pours a hazy copper with a big creamy light tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

Its aroma is sweet and spicy malts with some pepper and some fruitiness (maybe pear or apple) and some candy like sugar and a small hint of floral hops. More of a barley wine aroma than a DIPA.

The flavor is sweet caramel and sugary malts with some melon fruitiness initially. It is followed by a strong hop bitterness that leaves a lingering oily aftertaste. There is a smoky alcohol present as well. The mouthfeel is smooth and medium bodied.

Overall, one of Flying Dog’s better beers, but I thought the sweetness and bitterness was a little harsh and unbalanced; the sugary melon and hop bitterness just didn’t blend well to me - it was tough to finish. I kept thinking of Young’s Old Nick as I drank this. I got it for $8.50 on sale, which is too pricey for me to get again.

caramel/golden color with a hint of red. aroma is initially piney hops, with a buttery aroma coming on quickly. nose may even be a bit vegetal. flavoris a nice mixture of piney hopsand moderately sticky caramel. flavor is medium to full-bodied with a subtle alcohol burn. i’m really enjoying the pininess of this beer...it’s not quite yulesmith or hog heaven pininess, but it’s still pretty damn good.

Bottle # 4974. After a five to ten minute struggle to remove the cork, the beer poured a dark amber color, with a large white foamy head. The aroma is very hoppy, grapefruity and piney. A medium to full bodied American Strong Ale/Double Pale Ale. Malts are fruity, nutty and sweet. Hops are very prevalent, with grapefruit, pine and floral competing for ‘top dog’. The hop flavor dominate when this beer is cold, but as it warms more and more of the malt flavors come through. Lots of pineapple and orange flavors emerge as the hop profile lessens. Slightly spicy. Smooth taste. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2007 Pours with a deep red body topped by a thick off-white head with lots of lacing. The aroma is very hoppy and bitter with tons of grapefruit and pine, as well as, a very slight touch of mint and an underlying malty sweetness. The flavor is hoppy and bitter with a malty sweetness, lits of grapefruit and some pine. Full bodied and warming yet surprisingly smooth and a touch dry.

jigglyjock (161) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2005 Lusious thick head and a slightly foggy brown/amber color. Strong aroma of hops and malt with a thick pallet. Tastes of a lot of hops and malt. Good beer but for a special occation. Ten dollars is a lot but is an exotic special brew.
