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.

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 (163) - 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.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2005
A nice hop aroma, very disticnt sharp hop smell, but not as strong as I thought it would be, lots of malt in the taste to balance the enormous hop level, glass starts to smell like a heavy pine forest, bitterness and oiliness starts coming in at the end. This is a real hopheads delight. The blend isn’t quite as good as Dogfishhead, but those hops are wonderful. I’m getting some more

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Ruby tinted amber color with a nice off white head. Aroma is sweet and resiny. Flavor starts rich and sweet followed by some citrus and pine and finishing lightly dry and fruity. Palate is rich and smooth. 9% ABV not apparent, overall a good brew.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Deep amber color with solid froth above..tangy, chewy hop aroma with some sweet molassis riding underneath...Extremely hoppy and bitter in a sappy/resiny kind of way and sitting on a somewhat molassis-like sweet foundation. Surprisingly balanced yet still hoppy and quite herbal...This is what the Stone 7th Anniversary wanted to be. Quite nice for what it is, and quite nice for a brewery that usually brews utter garbage.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Pours a golden hue with a small white head. Slightly malty aroma of pine and citrus. Flavors of pine, maple, and a little citrus backing. A little too sweet for my palate, but it is nice to see this mediocre brewery try something different.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2005 (Draught, Drafting Room) Pours a lightly cloudy amber body with a small white head. Nice citrus and pine aroma. Similar flavor. By far the finest I have sampled from Flying Dog.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Hazy brown body, dense and foamy white head. Grassily spicy hops, spruce and dry malted barley. NIcely malted flavor - donuts, brown sugar, and caramel malt. Not a whole lot of hops in the flavor, just some grapefruit rind in the finish. I appreciate how a "double pale ale" has double malt and not just double the hops.

Received in my stocking complements of my Mom!
Ruby orange color with brown edges. Strong earthy fresh hops. Something very fresh but startes with a C. Taste is fresh & balanced. Not too much bitterness or sweetness which is good. Finishes with a bright citrus character. Tons of lacing & sticky head.
