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.

Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - APR 20, 2011
Pours crystal clear amber with a light carbonation. A few tiny bubbles rising in one thin line from the bottom of the glass. Really thick, rich, rock steady off white head. Powerful super hoppy fruity aroma. Flavor is loaded with grapefruit and pine needle hoppiness. And hang on cuz this is a strong one. The hops hides the alcohol but you need to be strong yourself to keep this dog on the leash.

Hoptagon (239) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2008
12oz. Bottle. Let me start by saying that this is a very solid brew. Pours out a burnt orange color with a decent lacy white head. Aroma is strong with lots of grapefruit and pine. Flavor also centers around the hops but is balanced decently by the malt profile. Crystal malt flavor is evident to keep the hops somewhat in check. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated and this beer has lots of that sticky resinous vibe that most of the 2IPAs exhibit. Finish is long lasting and extra bitter with a touch of alcohol warming sensation. You will be able to feel this one on your tongue for awhile after the beer is finished. Good stuff.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2007 I could smell the hops from the minute I unlodged the cork (and I do mean unlodge since it required a corkscrew). Dark golden and slightly hazy appearance. The smell is very promising. Hops are similar to 90 minute but more smoothed out by the malt. The malt is initially good in being able to carry the hop but then gets carried away and becomes cloyingly sweet. Each sip confirms this. Aroma and initial taste are good, but the sweetness on the finish is overdone. re-rate march ’07 12oz bottle - much more balanced. Big hops and big sweet fruity malt. Well done.

Once the cap is popped, it is very clear that this is no pale ale--and no variant thereof. The hop aroma filled my kitchen so much that my wife took notice from across the room. Pours a light amber with a thick creamy but shortly lived vanilla head. As I’ve already mentioned, the aroma id clearly filled with hop resins. Also smells of citrus. It sits thin-medium on the tongue. Taste is citrusy, piney, and very bitter. The finish is quite hoppy-bitter--very long hop finish.

It’s nice, very good. On the whole, I prefer Dog 60 and 90 and Great Divide’s Fresh Hop as examples of a well-hopped ale. But this is very nice and well worth the purchase.</br></br>

Bottle. Very rich malty aroma. RAisins, rum and cherries. Citrusy hops. Big, sweet flavor. Roasted malts evolves into slightly sour, bitter grape aftertaste.

Jimbo2 (234) - DENMARK - JUN 22, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2016 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...

Pours a somewhat murky brown, almost like dirty water. It is not in an unappealing fashion, though. Nice 1" to 1 1/4" head that dissipates quickly. Smells of hoppiness and your grandma’s soap. Also, some iodine and bubblegum buried in there. Despite the off-putting nose this is a drinkable beverage. It’s got a nice balance to it that was unexpected. A little bit of sweetness in front that blends very nicely into the hops on the backside of it. Just a little hot on the end, though. Feels quite nice in the mouth. A little on the creamy side, with a bit of bite from the hops. As far as pale ales go this is very decent. If you’re into the hops, I’d recommend it to you. Personally, I don’t dig overly hoppy tastes. I could, and most likely will, drink many more of these. (As long as another bottle of stout doesn’t get in the way.)

Bottle. Amber, brilliant clarity with beige head. Intense aroma of pines, caramel and herbs. Very bitter, however well balanced with a malty backbone. I think of it as an IIPA.

12 oz bottle. &#40;vintage 07&#41; Pours a very seductive amber/orange color with a BEAUTIFUL white head that has amazing retention and perfect lacing! Im not sure I have seen lacing this nice before. Aroma is surprisingly malty but still very heavy on the hops. Mostly citrus hops plow through the nice pillow of a head that is still in my glass. Flavor is mostly citrus fruit, grapefruit.... There is a very nice warming at the end from the 10+ %abv. Very smooth on the other hand. I have said it before, this beer could get you into trouble. The heavy resiny palate compliments the beer very nicely too. This beer is under the Gonzo shadow and I almost think it should be the other way around.
