From the bottle. Dark orange colour, fairly clear, white head. Pine and citrus fruits in the aroma, taste is hoppy, sweet and bitter with some honey goodness. A great beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours flat dark amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is of toasted malts, grapefruit hopps and yeast esters of grape, cherry and a bit peppery. Flavor is heavily bitter and hoppy and gets sweeter in the finish which is long. Medium bodied creamy and livley.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle, vintage 08GG. Pours hazy dark amber, with a relatively small, short lasting white head that leaves some sappy lace. Surprised by a biscuity, pit fruity, barley-winish aroma; just a bit of citrus hop. More pronounced citrusy (and bittering) hop profile in the flavor, but with a nice barleywine-esque rich malt backbone. Smooth and medium bodied with moderately high, prickly carbonation and some warming, but nothing suggesting 11.5%. Double pale ale seems a bit misleading, but whatever its called, this is a nice strong ale.

Bottle: Poured a light brown color with a semi brown head. Light hoppy aroma to it. Semi floral taste to it with a kick of the 10.5pct alcohol.

Flying Dog Double Pale Ale
Sample Tasting - Deep copper, white head. Strong.... hoppy, good bitter, but also sweet and floral - grapefruit. Good mixture of malt and hops. A good beer to drink with food. A little kick to it, but I wish I had more than just the sample.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Massive hop aroma explodes with a nice deep copper color. Extra foamy head builds quickly and stays. This has a thick malt profile, but its not too sweet like many IPA"s that I have tried. Never had a double pale ale, but this is kind of what I expected. The bitterness is evident at the end, but overall, this beer is so well balanced, nothing is overdone except for maybe the beer itself. But this is better than I expected, and I’m glad I tried it.

Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a nice creamy head. Has strong lacing and smells of spices and slightly sweet. Tastes of spices and bittering hops. A very good DIPA!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Amber/copper pour with thick foamy lasting tan head. Hops and sweet malt on the nose. Big hop bite, carmel, pine, and massive sweetness in the initial taste followed by some heat and a bitter alcohol finish. Initially I though this beer was all over the place with no balance, but as I got through it the beer evened out and became very enjoyable. There is no denying that this is a BIG beer. Worth a try.

solid offering from a brewery ive been less than impressed with in the past. nice copper color with a nice floral hop aroma. flavor was of sweet malts with a nice bitterness to follow and a citrusy/piney hop flavor. drinks rather easy and would definitely have again.
