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

Caramel colored with a scant off-white colored head. Nice balanced nose - malty sweetness and punchy, citrusy hops. Medium-bodied with active carbonation. Balanced maly sweetness and hop bitterness in the flavor.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 This beer is just about perfect in my book. Simply by smelling it you can tell it has some balls (no pun intended [not dog balls]). The smell is complex, the taste is complexerer, and the more you hold this beer in your hand and let it warm up, the more the beer grows. A bit of a barleywine hint to it, a very sweet, alcohol prevalent ale. Absolutely fabulous. I recommend putting it in your freezer (it wont freeze [it s 10.5%]) and sipping it slowly until it hits 60F for the last sip, because the beer will taste like a completely different beer with each warming sip.

Pours orangish bronze with a fully receding off-white head. Aroma of mango and pine resin. Taste is resinous, plenty of fruity hops, notes of grapefruit and mango. Mouthfeel is full bodied, resinous with full carbonation.

Bottled. Beer is lightly hazy, medium amber with an average-sized, light brown, frothy, diminishing, but mostly lasting head. Clingy, lasting, creamy cuff of lace on the snifter.<P> First impression on the nose is like breaking up a hop party. The aroma is malty with a light note of toasted grain, moderate note of biscuity caramel; Hoppy with heavy notes of resin/pine, cologne-like herbal, moderate grapefruit oil, lighter notes of dried apricot and green grass; Yeasty with a light of dough; Moderate notes of alcohol.<P> The flavor is is heavily bitter, heavily sweet, light-to-moderately acidic and boozy warm with a long, lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. Light astringency on gums.<P> The beer is full, the texture is syrupy and the carbonation is lively.<P> A hot hop wall without a lot of complexity. Not bad, but not liver-worthy.

120z Double Dog - Vintage 07c - Aroma of chewy earthy hops, caramel and pine. Pours transparent copper with a small head adn decent lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a ton of pine and alcohol. Palate is tart and crisp. Tasty and eye-popping.

Bottle. Small, off-white head (completely dissapated). Cloudy dark orange body. Good lacing. Strong citrus, some grass, and light caramel were all noticed-maybe a bit too much hops and not enough malts. Good carbonation. Medium bodied. Dry textured. Light alcohol present. This is a good american strong.

Great beer if you want to feel like you just had a mouthfull of hops for the next hour. I bought a 4 pack and had to give the other three away. I liked the first few sips, but after that I only tasted the IBUs. Dont get me wrong I like the hoppier beers, but I also enjoy balance, and this one is off to one side.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Amber/brown, cloudy, with a very robust khaki head. Grassy, hoppy nose, with a good dose of grapefuit, some caramel. Flavor is a bit musty, very citric--lots of grapefruit. Strong bitterness is balanced somewhat by a light caramel sweetness. Great, creamy mouthfeel. A worthy hop monster.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2007
12 oz bottle marked Vintage 07B. Slightly hazy deep amber body under a large beige head of moderate duration yet leaivng a nice lace. Big hoppy aroma - pine,bitter citrus, pepper, with a base of dark, ripe fruit. Medium to heavy body with some syrupy richness initially, followed by a bitter asrtringency. Very light carbonation adds to the feeling of thickness. Flavor of brown sugar, quickly steps into hthe background as a hige grapefruit bitterness takes over. The finish is long and bitter. Certainly one of the best offerings from flying dog.
