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.

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

Dogbrick (11607) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2005
On draught at Bostonís Bistro in Dayton. Hazy reddish orange color with a thick light tan head. Sticky rings of lacing. Lots of citrusy fruit in the nose along with hops. Medium-bodied and soft around the edges with muted but tasty hops, pine and more citrus flavor. The finish is zesty with peppery hops. After quite awhile of not bothering with Flying Dog I have been pretty impressed with the Gonzo Porter and now this.

Cloudy orange hoppy (citrusy and piney) with sweet caramel maltiness offset by more hoppiness. Lingers very nicely - quiteenjoyable.

Bottle #1600 from Liquor Barn, Louisville, KY. Pours orange brown with a medium creamy beige head. Lots of hops in the aroma: grapefruit and light pine. Flavor is sweet malts and of course, the big hop bite. I like it and it is, to me, easily Flying Dogís best beer.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2007 New rating, I previously had this as Wild Dog. My notes were pretty much the same. However, this one had a little more up front grapefruit. Nicely done. Purchased my bottle in Paducah, KY on my return trip from the Nooga. Bottle number 1506. Pours a dark and hazy amber. A thin and persistent tan colored head. The aroma is sweet caramel and some hay. There is also grapefruit, peanuts and some pine. The taste is awesome. Notes of caramel, oak and vanilla. There is also bread crust, muted grapefruit and a little bit of pine. I love the malt backbone here. I imagine that the few months of aging probably smoothed out this big boy. I am very impressed. Flying Dog should consider making this a regular offering, but with a lower price tag.

Bottle #2824 Thanks to MAP for the bottle. Poured into a Trappist glass. Clear orange reddish color, thick head clings well to the glass. Wonderful aromas, tropical fruit, vanilla cookies, some citrus. Full smooth creamy body with low carbonation and a syrupy coating mouthfeel. Very Barlywine/Imperial IPA like in flavors. Rich fruity malt with loads of piney citrusy hops. Some caramel and vanilla notes, peaches, grapefruit and other notes of tropical fruit. Finish is a delicate bitterness and lingering notes of fruit and hops. Iím impressed with this brew and the only brew from Flying Dog Iíve ever enjoyed as much. They should make this level of beer more often. Thanks Mark!

I liked this beer. It remeinds me alot of DogFish 90. Good malt backbone, floral and pine hopps. Appearance is great with good lacing, copper color and slightly hazy. A good frothy off white head to boot. Aroma is nice with a significant pine hoppy aroma. Good blance in the finish from an initial sl sweet taste. All in all a good beer.

Bottle #969:
Slightly hazy dark copper body with a large tan off-white head. Aroma of pure hops (dry hopped well), some caramel and a bunch of malt. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong hop flavours, a bunch of malt and some sweet caramel notes are noticeable. Aftertaste malty and yeastie-very full-bodied; Overall a decent beer-not perfect or great, but good to try this rarity. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 09-January-2005.
