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.

Pours orange amber, slightly hazy, with low white head. Aroma of resin, spruce, caramel malt, toffee, apricot. Taste is alcohol and fruit sweet before a strong but balanced bitter finish. Medium carbonation, full creamy body with some stickiness, somewhat oily. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is it. For me the biggest, baddest Double IPA. So much hops, yet somehow balanced by sweetness from the malt. So full, so rich...

Lowenbrau (2601) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
12 fl oz bottle. Lots of times while the first craft american invasion in Spain.
In short: boozy cfruity ale.
This was one of the first american crafts i had, when they landed in Spain around 2006-2007. An amber ale with nice off white head, lots oof malty and fruity aromas, robust body, moderate bitterness, dry finish. Boozy but still enjoyable.

jamaty (1144) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Color cobre, clara con buena capa de espuma, consistente. Gran aspecto. Aroma muy lupulado, cítrico y floral. Especiada y muy floral en boca. Extra lupulada, muy muy amarga con alcohol presente. Final muy ligeramente de dulce malta en el postgusto. Ultra potente. Todo un copazo

Pours a reddish amber with thick, frothy off-white head. Strong malt and caramel on the nose. The flavors come out immediately: huge malty sweetness on the tongue followed by hoppy bitterness. Big bodied ale, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. This thing is a whopper. Delicious.

Sjohnh (427) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Orange / brown with a small white head. Oily body, on the thicker side of medium. Tangerine, citrus, grapefruit and pine on the nose. Fruits give a fresh kick start to the taste, with a toffee middle and a brief bit of sweetness before a final bitter mouthwash.

Savage_Night (80) - California, USA - APR 26, 2015
Pours light brown/red wine h a nice white head. Head retention is ok. Aroma of big hop bitterness, citrus, slight fruit and slight pepper. Big hoppy bitterness along with pepper, pineapple, caramel, herbal and floral flavors. Great hop bitterness but not so much that it destroys your palate.

odinstyr (593) - Howell, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2015
Pours a clear orange-red with a good off-white head. Smells of pine and citrus, with a hint of wheat bread. Taste is sweet and bitter - initial malt followed by a spruce, floral and citrus mix of hops.

jh773 (230) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2015
When it’s fresh this beer is really rough around the edges and is a little cloying. I’ve had this particular bottle since late December and so I’m going to see if the time does this any favors. Orange-red color with not much head or visible carbonation. Aroma is rich caramel toffee and syrupy citrus. Taste is smooth and rich with lots of caramel and stone fruit flavor. Some citrus flavor but a little stale, lots of alcohol heat in the finish. Aging this beer a bit seems to improve it, if only a little bit.

superspak (3321) - Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2015
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 4/22/2015. Pours crystal clear deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, raisin, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, toffee, toast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, raisin, orange peel, citrus rind, pine resin, caramel, toffee, toast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, raisin, orange peel, citrus rind, pine resin, caramel, toffee, toast, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of huge citrus/pine hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, resinous sticky, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with a small warming lingering after the finish. Overall this is an awesome DIPA. All around great robustness, complexity, and balance of big citrus/pine hops and moderate dark malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the huge ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
