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.

So can I just say that Iíve hated (and hate is a strong word), Flying Dogís other traditional offerings. Snake Dog, Old Scratch, and In-Heat Wheat were horrible...definitely in the "2" category. This was surprising, refreshing, and bold. I really enjoyed it. Poured a red with a hint of tangerine with solid 1/2 inch head that left significant lacing sliding down the glass. Aroma was potent floral hops and citrus/pine bite. Flavor matched itís aromatic aggressiveness and added sweetness balances it out nicely. A six pack of these could easily lead to amnesia...pick one up!!!

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep amber, medium off white head, nice soapy lacing. Huge aroma of grapefruit, spruce, heavy malt, resin, thick caramel. Taste is amazingly bitter pine and grapefruit, but a strong malt backbone is present as well. Long bitter finish.

once grados pesan mucho. Es una bomba de lķpulo pero puedes acabar muy mal con un par de ellas.

stevoj (1971) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle from Beer Heaven in Philly. Dark clear amber, small beige head. Surprisingly, lots of malt in both aroma and taste. Hops add astringency. Nice tangy, bitter finish

Thereís a certain comfort in certainty, especially when it comes to things that are close to you. Strange as it may seem, when it comes to beer, Iím old-fashioned that way; I like to know wxactly what it is Iím drinking and I expect the beer to mostly conform to its style (ballpark - sort of like virtuoso guitar playing within the context of the song) So when I sit down to drink an American beer, I expect a hoppy, bitter, aromatic concoction. Especially when itís from a brewery thatís given me so many great beers of that ilk. Fair to say, the Double dog shattered all my conceptions. For starters, itís a frightful 11% ABV - thatís in Belgian tripel territory (and we know all about those crazy drunk Flemish loons and their seductive boozy ales). Itís a double IPA - I expect to have my tongue curled by bitterness, instead I get a malty sweetness thatís more like an English ale. Thankfully, the grapefruit aroma is comforting - at least somethingís familiar! This is a big, bold, brash yet magnificently disguised beer. Worth experiencing, even if only for the sensory rush.
