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.

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.

BleacherBum (177) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Thick off-white head and deep amber pour. Plenty of bubbles rising to the top throughout. HUGE hop aroma with notes of pine and grapefruit. Almost overwhelming. Beautiful flavors of hop bitterness and light citrus. Extremely bitter, but with enough malt to keep this monster at bay. Really, much better than I had anticipated. A big big beer.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - MAR 20, 2007
Orange-hued red pour has an instantly lively nose of fresh, assertive hops suggesting citrus and pine. Palate is heavy with lively carbonation. Flavor is really a treat with an initial hop bite that mellows through some sweet caramel malts, and ends with a lasting dryness. This definitely resembles some of the best recent examples of American barleywines with an excellent hop bitterness and malt sweetness interplay. If not the best brew from Flying Dog, then very close.

muteprint (176) - Olympia, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2010
12 oz bottle. Deep cloudy red in color, very bitter in taste with strong dashes of raisin. The alcohol is well masked for the hefty 11.5 abv!

Hazy copper with tanned head. Pepper aroma with hoppy bitterness and malts. Strong peppered flavor with bergamot and bitter herbs.

big malt, big hops, what’s not to like? great stuff. you could call this a barley wine I suppose but given the relatively slender body (much fatter than a IIPA though) I think double pale ale is the correct description.

WOW, this is a TOUGH beer. Hoptastic taste busts your ass. well either that or the 11.5% abv, i can’t quite tell. There is a very full taste to it that can’t quite decribe that is different from most double IPA’s. This beer definitely will be in my rotation for a while

A great double IPA. A heavy hop aroma with a hazybright orange glow to it. The head is a good natural floral smell and pours like a champ. The biternessin this brew is ideal for a double IPA.
