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.

jigglyjock (161) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2005 Lusious thick head and a slightly foggy brown/amber color. Strong aroma of hops and malt with a thick pallet. Tastes of a lot of hops and malt. Good beer but for a special occation. Ten dollars is a lot but is an exotic special brew.

The beer pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin light brown head that leaves nice lacing. The nose is sweet malts and dry hops. This beer is stickier then I ever thought, it is very sweet malt forward with a nice strong bitter hop dry finish that is long lived.

Golden in color. Small off white head. Cloudy body with some small particles. Aroma is sweet caramel and pine. Flavor is sweet caramel, spice, banana and strong hops on the back end.

Chiswick (159) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Clear amber liquid, pours a white thin head. Aromascape is vast; alcohol, barley wine’ish’ whiskey blended with chocolate and bread.. earth and herbs with a gentle fruity side. Interesting and complex, while maintaining a delicate balance, not making a fuss. The taste is very light on sweetness and emphasizes on the bitter/sour combo. The taste does not really enhance the aromas, but works as a nice contrast and has a lot of oomph because of the alcohol. Nice punch. The palate is balanced but does not enhance anything. This could be an area that could enhance the experience a lot more. Good, lightly complex beer.

SirRepsol (158) - Cologne, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2013
From bottle. The double dog pours a clear orange colour with a two-finger bright frothy head. Fruity and spicy but also alcoholic aroma of hops, mainly pine and citrus fruits and some maltiness. It can’t really hide its 11,5%...Taste is alcoholic, particularly in the aftertaste, as well as spicy and fruity. But the alcoholic taste just dominates everything, which impairs the generall (positive) impression. Medium body, fizzy carbonation and bitter finish. Interesting brew that is spoiled by its severe alcoholic taste.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

mackus2 (156) - Edison, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours deep reddish amber with nice off-white head. Nice nose- floral and bitter hops, dried fruit, citrus, alcohol. Full body, soft, almost creamy, maybe a tad bit too much carbonation. Taste is big like the nose, almost sweet, with a big, bitter finish and bit of an alcohol kick. Great beer from a great brewer- two thumbs up!

phildorsey (154) - Fort Carson, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Bottle 12 OZ. Pours semi cloudy amber. Aroma is a very strong citrus flavor; pungent even, head is light and quickly vanishes. Taste is very strong; somewhat overpowering, and oily (yeah oily!). Alcohol kicks you in the teeth and slaps you in the back of the head. What just happened? A man’s beer; weak be warned this beer is strong.

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2005
Bottle. Ruby coloured with a firm off-white head. Extremely sweet malt aromas mixed with citrusy hop notes. Sweet on the palate with loads of bitterness and noticeable alcohol. Great beer.

buzz_and_hum (153) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 22, 2010
Deep amber brown, light head. Nose full of citrus and yeast, tangs of lemon. Light on the tounge, warm from the bitter hops and high alcohol. Sour aftertaste, which slightly spoils the effect. Could have a warmer, more solid taste for the style, but the assault of hops is well levened by the citrus and bread-like notes.
