COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Dog Double Pale Ale Back by popular demand, our original "Wild Dog Release" is back, and this time itís 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.

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 Iíve 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.

Itís nice, very good. On the whole, I prefer Dog 60 and 90 and Great Divideís 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.

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 grandmaís soap. Also, some iodine and bubblegum buried in there. Despite the off-putting nose this is a drinkable beverage. Itís 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 youíre into the hops, Iíd recommend it to you. Personally, I donít dig overly hoppy tastes. I could, and most likely will, drink many more of these. (As long as another bottle of stout doesnít get in the way.)

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.

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.

Bottle. Orange gold pour, slight disappearing head. Very aromatic, so hoppy, piney, fruity. Taste is same but also malty and with caramel. Medium strong body with mild carbonation. One of the better Flying Dogs.

Opaque orange amber with a relatively slow moving head. Instant whiff of pine and citrus, followed by a slight metallic aroma. Nicely balanced sweetness and bitterness, respectively. Pales aren’t my typical style, but this was enjoyable.

big heavy beer. bitter all over the front of this thing. little bit of roasty flavored malt in the middle and then a bitter finish. i would have liked a bit lighter sweet malt flavor on a pale, but overall it pretty solid. the alcohol in this is giving off some weird flavors. pretty interesting.. banana, but ive been tasting banana in a lot of beer lately ?? even though you can taste the alcohol, its pretty well hidden. This is a lot more like an IPA than an american strong ale, maybe the percentage is too high??? page here says 10.5 but my bottle says 11.5. pretty good stuff. expensive as hell. nite!
