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.

chinchill (1873) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2014
12 oz bottled stamped "VINTAGE 11CC" (from June 2011 notes). Pours a nice reddish amber, nearly clear, with a short-lived but creamy tan head. Aroma: both hops and toasted malt evident. High ABV partially hidden, especially before warming. Floral and woodsy with a hint of citrus. After warming a bit, it has a very boozy aroma. Taste: imbalance of bitter over aromatic hops, with a pungent bitter quality that hits almost immediately and is all that remains in the finish. FD says IBU = 85 but it seems even higher. High ABV is all too apparent in the flavor. Aged bottle was smoother and more palatable. M - smooth; medium body with good carbonation ... but the 11.5% ABV adds an unpleasant burn. O - I had this immediately after finishing an excellent Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA. A striking difference, with pronounced bitter hoppy flavor in the FD as well as a less attractive and LESS hoppy aroma. The FD is certainly challenging and seems unrefined by comparison, even allowing for a minor style difference. There’s nothing average about this beer, but that’s where my overall rating of it ends up.

Flaska. Fina aromer med frisk havskänsla. Först en dubbel ipa känsla för att direkt slå över till barley wine smaker. Väldigt kraftig med många bottnar. Tyvärr slår den kraftiga alkoholen igenom.

Caña en ipa Gijón 09-04-3014. Regreso a los inicios. Amargo seco intenso junto con sabores afrutados y dulces. Cuerpo intenso y bastante pastoso aunque con buen paso por boca. Bien de espuma y gas. Sabores intensos y duraderos, un agradable recuerdo después de tres años. ,,,,,Varias botellas durante 2011,en los inicios de la senda del amargor. Toda una nostálgica.

Theydon_Bois (8695) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2014
Keg at the City Pub, Goteborg, 21/03/14. Hazed orange amber with a big old off white creamy head of bubbles. Nose is caramel malt, dark fruit, light roasty tones, spice, booze. Taste comprises light tropicals, orange rind, booze, toffee fudge, spice. Medium bodied +, fine carbonation, semi drying close with lightly warming booze. Ok but lacks a little depth for the ABV.

jflopsu (542) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours a hazy and dark orange-red. Has a strong malt and hop aroma. Taste is a unique mix of sweet caramel and malts, with citrus hops and dark fruits. A strong bitter hop and malt aftertaste.

metalhead0043 (144) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 21, 2014
12 oz bottle for 2.49. Pours deep, dark red with a slight orange huge and an off white head. Aroma is huge citrus hops and raisins with a malt backing. Taste is sweet, coffee, hoppy, bitter and malty all at the same time. The high ABV is masked very well also. Body is full with a nice, heavy texture. Overall this is a quite good strong ale. Easy to drink and very strong.
