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.

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.

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.

pours a slightly cloudy copper color w/ a thick creamy off-white head. The aroma was of hopps and citrus, very clean. The palate was creamy and full bodied thick and great. the flavor was first hops w/ a good malt back and hints of a sweet citrus. cold it was a refreshing taste and as it warmed up more of the malty flavor came out and reminded me of a weak barley wine, but w/ much less alcohol and less malts. Overall it was very good after it warmed up a bit.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2007 2004 Wild Dog. Appearance was reddish in hue with a light lacy head. Had a very indiscernible aroma. Had a nice mouthfeel. Flavor reminds me of a barley wine. Malty and sweet. Hoppy. 5, 3, 8, 3, 11 = 3.0

Double Dog vintage 07B. Pours to a lightly hazy bronze body with a really light cream colored head. The head is very creamy and has awesome lacing. The aroma is extremely hoppy. Citrus, grapefruit, pine, oranges, and light graham crackers. The flavor is caramel and graham crackers with bitter grassy and spruce hops. A really rich bitterness and moderately full mouthfeel. Finishes clean in under 10 seconds with only minor residual oils. Much better than I remember the Wild Dog to be.

Nuffield (3941) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Massive hop aroma, with layers of pine. Orange marmelade, too. Two-second mid-finish gave me a nice jolt of orange juice. Nice round flavors, pine lasting through it, with a good, well-supported palate. Good stuff. (2004 Christmas Party, my #5, group’s #11)

Far and away the best Flying Dog I have yet had, though the bar has no been set to high. Copper body topped by a fluffy light tan head. The aroma is tons of resinous hops. citrus and sweetness play second fiddle here. The flavor is very piney, hints of pine sol but it avoids being nasty pine sol. Sweetness comes late but the alcohol kicks in strong shortly thereafter and takes over. The body is full and sticky. An interesting beer and thanks to my father-in-law for buying this surprise for our xmas day!

Bottle. Dark amber color with a foamy light tan head. Strong hops in the aroma and flavors with some sweet and burnt malts. A little too harsh in some respects. Christmas Party 2004 ranked 9/15 (mine) and 11/15 (group).
