COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Dog Double Pale Ale Back by popular demand, our original "Wild Dog Release" is back, and this time its 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.

Bottle; Poured a brownish orange; a little murky; with not much off white head. Aroma of caramel malt and citrus hops. Strong pine presence too. Flavor has an initial strong hop presence; Sticky and smooth. Lacks alot of complexity, but there is some. Some caramel malt and grapefruit/citrus. Very good, but not great. Very much like a double IPA

Poured from Stone Brewery tap with a cloudy orange tinge. Aroma of some malty caramel and very nice hps. Pine with some citrus lemon. Head was white tan. On the palate the brew is smooth and creamy. The flavor has a strong hop characyer along with a little sweet malt. Nice complexity and finish of good duration.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2007 Poured a burnt orange. Aroma of caramel, toffee and piny grapefruit bitter hops. Tastes first of caramel malt sweetness, then pine. Sweetness lingers throught the finish but theres plenty of grapefruit and a good hop flavor, followed by a lasting bitter finish. Good, but not as nicely put together as it could be.

Had this again on its own and I liked much more than the original rating reflects. Great aroma, big sweet malt flavor, and a big fruity flowery and piny hop presence, all combined well. The aftertaste has a bit too much char for my taste. This kinda like Oskar Blues Gordon, but a bit stronger, with a less pleasant finish.

12 oz bottle. Deep copper, with a tight thin head. Bit of a malt and hop aroma, but not too overpowering. Bitter, almost like an IPA, medium heavy body and a bit astringent. This beer is serious and intense, not as refreshing as I had hoped.

Bottled. Poured a tawny, cloudy orange with a tan head. Resin and grapefruit nose. The flavor is citrusy and the finish is tremendously hoppy, with a hint of alcohol. A fine offering from Flying Dog.

WOW. Now i really liked this one. Has a real hoppy nose to it. The flavor is nice a bitter. Alcohol is not present at first, but the longer you let it lay on your tongue, the more present it becomes. This brew is by far the best Flying Dogg brew that I have tasted. This is something that i will deff. be purchasing for of. Outstanding job!

Hazy orange amber color with a fluffy cream colored head. Huge sharp nose of pine resin and hop pellets, almost pungent enough to be BO. There is so much hops in here. Tons of pine, spruce, rosemary, resin, and I taste basil. This is one of those beers that makes your lips sticky. The alcohol makes itself felt more than tasted. The mouthfeel and the dark breadiness form enough of a foundation for something approaching balance. This is a great hop head beer, and Im glad its in 12 oz bottles.

Whooooaaa Nelly! Seriously big IPA, or, dare I say it, double IPA. Certainly qualifies as An American Strong Ale, but Flying Dog Double Dog Double Pale Ale certainly smacks me like a solid DIPA would. Delicious. Nay, DOUBLE delicious. Lots and lots of bitter hops to send your palate into a tailspin. A truly heavy, strong, incredibly hopped, malty ale. Total ass kicker. Thanks Naven.

Hazy reddish color, full head. Smells really nice, a blend of hops and a dash of carmel to my nose. Heavy winey taste, not as bitter as I would have expected.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2007 This beer had an aroma of some sweet malt and some piney citrus hops. Poured a brownish amber color. Flavor was mostly hoppy bitterness, balanced slightly by sweet caramel malt. This was more like a DIPA really. As it warmed it got a little more malty, but was still drinkable and pleasant for being so strong in alcohol. I liked this one. I had this later on out of a bottle. I was less impressed as it was dominated by sweet malt. A little piney hops peaked through, but not as much as I had the draft rated. A lot of alcohol peaks through out of the bottle too. I did not like this as much the second time around.
