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.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2008 I got this in SD over the summer and forgot I had written my description down on paper. I just opened my suitcase and found it. Pours a rich, creamy apricot color with a full, creamy froth. Superb hangtime with a lasting, sticky lace. Strong aromas of penetrating hops and thick, choking malts. Full nectar with expansive residual effers that create a nice, creamy texture. This brew really smacks me in the face w/ itís hopsy bitchslap affect. Strict, cutting, brutal asprin citrus rind pummles the pig fat goopy malts. The malt characteristics have nuances of caramel, blackcherry, and cotton candy. Double Dog is the bomb man. Musculin, burly, robust, and unforgiving yet generous. If grizzlybears drank beer, this would be it. The asprin really digs in and sweep the fat off the floor but it doesnít let go. Like a full nelson. It feels like my tongue is calcifying as I write. The best thing is that itís not too grapefruity. It drinks extreme but totally in balance. The finish is long on flavor and bittered beyond belief with itís asprin talons. Iíd call it a DIPA.

why explain what is obvious (to non-macro, non-snob micro) appreciators of brew? this is stellar stuff at all levels. hopheads and opposite will find much swamp and jungle to explore in this heady brew. remember: itís virtually 12%...if you like bourbon, focus on the finish.....

12oz bottle vintage 09ii, they really dialed this batch! Iíve been a big fan of DD for many years but this batch might be their best yet. Awesome color, head and hop aroma. Very balanced and you would never know it was 11.5% until you downed a few :) I would love to try this batch on tap. However, the 09FF batch was TERRRIBLE!! I donít know what they did but they went from their worst batch to their best back to back!

One of my favorite beers along with Dogfishheadís 90 Minute. Very bold bitter hop aroma and flavor. Complex tones throughout make this interesting every sip.

smells really nice but this beer smells and looks MEAN. And? It IS....The small uneven head dissipates quickly, two pulls on the glass and Itís obvious from the lacing this is high octane stuff. The taste is really almost into IIPA territory yet hangs back a bit. The DELICIOUS malts used in this beer then un-sheath their swords. Yikes. The hops are mid-palate and very cool. The bitterness never trying to spar with those deadly delicious malts. This is a damn good beer and seems to me to be almost of a style all Itís own.

Stiamo parlando sicuramente di una delle birre piý buone al mondo: ci sarebbe poco da dire. Líunica cosa che vorrei far notare Ť questa: a dispetto dei suoi 12% risulta leggera nel palato ( e nella testa). Líaroma Ť determinante e il doppio malto sopraffino.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2009 EAST COAST IPAíS RULE!!! This is the beer iíve been looking for all my life. It tastes almost identical to Southern Tier UnEarthly, but has a slightly higher ABV and is much cheaper. 4x12oz for $10. At 11.5% alc, this beer is no joke. Extreme hop taste, balanced with a strong malt backbone. Long, bitter finish. Slight alcohol warming. Bitter. This is a great beer, one of the best iíve ever had. And itís price point makes it my favorite. Top notch. Bravo.

Tap. Masterpiece. Aromas of anisette, spice, caramel, grass, and alcohol. Taste has a sweet start, with long-lasting bitterness. Palate is syrupy, and fully bodied. Amber colour, with a creamy white head.
