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 a beautiful, sparking orange/amber, with no head and decent carbonation. Nose is very sweet and citrusy with a mix of grapefruit, plum, grape, alcohol and hops. Mouth is very hoppy and boozy with pine, citrus, grape and honey. A very hoppy beer with a complex flavor and strong finish. A pleasure to drink.

Fresh hop aroma. Slightly sweet with big malty flavor and dark fruits. Huge finish with late aromatic hop flavors.

Hops and pine smell, kind of musty. Rusty amber in color, very clear, thin, white head. Heavy hop and some burn. I’ve read this is a drinkable double IPA...which is true, but, there is definate alcohol burn on the way down. Thin taste, very hop bitter. I like the heavy taste of hops but could not drink more than a couple in an evening.

dolemite77 (184) - Maryville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 9, 2008
Aroma is sweet hoppy goodness... pours a hazy orange/amber with minimal head. Lacing is extreme on this one. Flavor is hoppy as anything I’ve had in a while. There is a strong bit of sweetness to this one as well. It’s almost like a sweeter version of Stone Arrogant Bastard. The swallow is dry and bitter. Excellent display of American hops.

Talk about a tongue bruiser! Aged amber colour with a dense creamy off white head that lingers and laces nicely. Huge toffee and floral citrus on the nose. Very chewy mouthfeel with lots of sweet malts, hints of raisin and star anise, plus a jolt of citrus bitter hops. Caution, approach this one with care as it will bite you if abused. The ABV is hidden when cold, but look out as it warms. Well done Flying Dog, well done.

Caramel, lightly reddish, some haze, some white head. Big floral hoppy aroma, some higher alcohols. Sharp fusel bite, strong bitterness. Lively, playful, not heavy. Not too bad a brew, but the higher alcohols have a sharp edge to them that fights with the bitterness.

Bistro DIPA Fest, 2008. First Up, and what a nice beer, good notes, and great balance. Hey, a colorado beer, in the Bay area, I think this is great stuff, bag loads of hops, and just a nice biscuit finish. Alcohol is hidden. shame about sample size - had another.

This Double Dog is a little too bitter for my liking, but I enjoyed the smell and look. It left a good hop flavor. I’m impressed.

This packs a lot of punches, but not necessarily in a very well choreographed way. The nose was bold and the high point of the brew, with lots of strong, seductive malty and hoppy aromas. The taste was a silly mish-mosh of severe bitterness and cloying sweetness. The alcohol dominated the palate. I’m afraid this brew tried to do too much. At least it smelled really good while trying.

tabernae (178) - Latina, ITALY - SEP 15, 2011
Birra color ambra scuro, con una schiuma bianca non troppo lunga, avvicinandola sei invaso dall’aroma di luppolo, zucchero caldo e malto tostato, in bocca il luppolo non è così presente, se la gioca con frutti amari, chinotto, e frutti dolci, come uva passa, proprio quest’ultima dava l’idea di barley wine invecchiato, e chissà che questa birra bevuta tra un anno non virava completamente su sapori passiti, comunque da questo punto di vista fantastica.
