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.

Temptation (220) - - MAR 13, 2013
Reddish amber color, slightly opaque, with a white and shortlasting head. Rich and complex aroma to American strong hops, fruits, biscuit and an alcoholic trace. Very tasty, bordering an IPA, in mouth is hoppy, pine, honey, lemon and pure alcohol. The overall is complex, strong, tasty, balanced and structured, with a great development and a very rich finish. Excellent, but difficult, beer.

jbruner (2285) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle thanks to trade with mikericm! Pours a slightly hazy copper with fluffy khaki head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of strong caramel malts and raisins with a hint of oxidation, hops have all fallen off. Taste follows, lots of big caramel malts, dark fruits, sweet booze and burnt sugar. Booze is there, but not too much, just a slight burn on the way down then your drunk. Decent for what it is, would like to try it fresh.

Alengrin (992) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
Very American double IPA with moussy, snow white head and warm orange blonde colour. Aroma strongly perfumed with lemon peel, raisins, pine needles, bitter honey, mint, grapefruit, lemon grass, tonic water; unusually intense taste, beginning with grape- and lemon-iike fruitiness, bitter honey, smooth, but then totally overpowered by an almost corrosive, peppery and citrussy, very challenging and extremely long hop bitterness, drying mouth, throat and inspiration alike. Only for the brave-hearted.

adster (203) - HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2014
Megszokott, sötétebb rézszín és tekintélyt parancsoló illat, mely utóbbi az üvegben szunnyadó és annak címkéjén - az elkövetkezendő ízélménnyel történő barátkozás elősegítése érdekében is - szereplő szörnyeteg jelenlétének egy igen erőteljes bizonyítékát szolgáltatja. Kemény, gyantás jellegű aromák indulnak útjukra egy elegáns, élesztős, likőrös éllel, melyet pirított magvak és maláta lágy karaktere tompít. Ezek után a legkevésbé sem meglepő módon következik az az olajos, izmos testű, gyümölcsösen üde bevezetés, mely remekül nyit utat a főszereplő vad ámokfutásának, a komló gyantás és grapefruitos vonulatai közötti vibrálásnak, majd a végszóként minden alkalommal ugyanazzal a könyörtelenséggel lesújtó masszív keserűségnek. Miután melegszik egy keveset, ezt a csípős kesernyét egyre nyíltabban követi egy nyelvzsibbasztgató alkoholosság, ezzel is fokozva fajsúlyos jellegét a sörnek. Első osztályú csemege a keményebb sörök kedvelőinek.

kraddel (2967) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014
Draft @ beertemple Pours rather clear amber , good white head . Smell is english-style malts . Not as hoppy as expected . Bitter , very malty taste . The weird thing is , this tastes like bitter malts , in dtead of the familiar malts+bitter . To me a very unique approach to beer . Nithing to go crazy about , but certainly better than thevrsst i had from flying dog .
