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.

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

big malt, big hops, whatís 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.

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.

12oz. bottle from Tacoma Boys Market. Minimal head on the pour, some lacing, and a tawny leather color. Aroma is massively sweet with stone-fruit overtones. Flavor is also sweet, but nowhere near where the nose was indicating. A smooth, honey-like mouthfeel helps to prevent the sweetness from becoming cloying, as do the hops. Good hop profile really pushes this brew above and beyond. Let this sit about 15 minutes out of the fridge, and itíll be right where you want it. This is really what youíd call a barleywine. Deschutes doubled down on their Mirror Pond (Mirror Mirror) and this really compares very closely.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2008 I love this pale ale. Itís my favorite. I donít know how a pale ale can have 85 IBUs, but I like it. Vey much like an IPA. It pours a dark orange, with an off white head that gives off a ....at first malty aroma then after another wiff, you can smell the hops some citrusy notes and flowery notes. The flavor is very intense both in pale malts and hops, but balanced with skill. Very hoppy to say the least, which is always pleasant.Very sweet as it warms a little. I smell and taste something I can’t put my finger on.... maybe some of the darker fruits you might think of. And it is very warm with 10.5 % ABV but Oh so smooth. Much props.

Bottle. Pours a orange color with a tan head. Smells strongly citrus wiht a little maltiness. Flavor is hoppy and not overly resiny.

Pours a dark amber color with a one finger white head. Aroma is mostly malts and some citrus hops. 11.5% alcohol??? Well masked. Sweet, malty, and easy drinking. Had this after a Double Bastard, and to compare, the DB was a little better.

Double pale ale? What about the India? Pours a little dark amber. Nice cream head. Even lasts awhile. Sticky lace down the glass. Wow, nice bitter blast. And yes some sweet back end. Not much aroma, bottle says 08 batch, so, maybe thatís the reason? Man this is alcoholic, whew, i can barely finish this review! But i like it! Hoppy, fairly balanced, great aftertaste, hope itís available all the time!

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2007 Wow. Bottle. I donít get where all of the highly carbonated reviews come from. My head died off fast and did not bubble long. Very hoppy, but not without a blast of candy coated goodness first. This beer is very sweet off the get go but leaves any hop head happy towards the end of the swallow.

Had to go to a liquor store to get this one. Fantastic, a really rich taste that lasts. Good level of bitterness to finish.
