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.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, - MAY 24, 2009
Light amber colour, strong aroma of toffee. Initial ultra-brief sweet taste as well. There is more than enough bitterness here just from the strong alcohol with a hint of vodka. The hops are of course dominant but in a way almost redundant. I found it to be drinkable only a couple of ozs. at a time. It is like being hit over the head with a sledgehammer. Not a member of the cognescenti on this one.

Orange / brown with a small white head. Oily body, on the thicker side of medium. Tangerine, citrus, grapefruit and pine on the nose. Fruits give a fresh kick start to the taste, with a toffee middle and a brief bit of sweetness before a final bitter mouthwash.

Savage_Night (39) - California, USA - APR 26, 2015
Pours light brown/red wine h a nice white head. Head retention is ok. Aroma of big hop bitterness, citrus, slight fruit and slight pepper. Big hoppy bitterness along with pepper, pineapple, caramel, herbal and floral flavors. Great hop bitterness but not so much that it destroys your palate.

odinstyr (583) - Howell, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2015
Pours a clear orange-red with a good off-white head. Smells of pine and citrus, with a hint of wheat bread. Taste is sweet and bitter - initial malt followed by a spruce, floral and citrus mix of hops.

When itís fresh this beer is really rough around the edges and is a little cloying. Iíve had this particular bottle since late December and so Iím going to see if the time does this any favors. Orange-red color with not much head or visible carbonation. Aroma is rich caramel toffee and syrupy citrus. Taste is smooth and rich with lots of caramel and stone fruit flavor. Some citrus flavor but a little stale, lots of alcohol heat in the finish. Aging this beer a bit seems to improve it, if only a little bit.

superspak (3164) - Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2015
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 4/22/2015. Pours crystal clear deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, raisin, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, toffee, toast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, raisin, orange peel, citrus rind, pine resin, caramel, toffee, toast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, raisin, orange peel, citrus rind, pine resin, caramel, toffee, toast, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of huge citrus/pine hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, resinous sticky, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with a small warming lingering after the finish. Overall this is an awesome DIPA. All around great robustness, complexity, and balance of big citrus/pine hops and moderate dark malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the huge ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

cracking beer with massive opulent body and heaps of raisiny, piney stewed fruit aromas. the spicy finish masks the massive alcohol levels well. balanced, complex and long

mikske79 (1278) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - MAR 12, 2015
Als je het uitschenkt heeft het een heel heldere kleur en de geur is ook heel goed. Er vormt zich ook een mooie kraag. Maar de smaak is veel en veel te bitter voor mij. Dit kan ik echt niet volledig opdrinken. Dan zijn er betere IPAís te vinden dan dit

ARH (749) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is sweet caramel and citrus with a light wood and resin compliment. The beer is a clear, deep caramel amber hue with a big, foamy, dense white head that reduces down to a medium thin ring with a filmy surface and leaves an abundant, runny and streaky lace.The beer is highly waxy bitter with a medium high caramel sweet. Itís thick on the tongue with a slick quality to it. A fizzy and fuzzy carbonation help the medium full body go down. The palate is initially struck with a strong bitter citrus with a woody quality. Some toffee appears underneath that. The finish is crisp with bittersweet citrus and pine cleanliness that turns to a burnt character with a hint of waxy cheese rind. The aftertaste is strong and lightly cloying with wax and resin, but doesnít last too long.

TattooJack (229) - Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2015
This is a power house! I got through 4 of these last night and had to hang it up, then had 2 more today. Itís not fancy or glamorous, just really hardcore IPA. You should probably not buy this if you get hung up on specifics, because the buzz will hit you before you get to break it down. Great 2x IPA taste, high alcohol, and over all a great drinking experience!

Emeister84 (1412) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Aromas of booze, caramel, pungent hop resin. Clear ruby with a mostly lasting off-white head. Sticky malt sweetness up front, boozy warmness, aggressive, bitter hops. Full bodied.
