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.

HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2007
Bottle (12oz). As Double Dog. Deep clear burnt copper colour, fluffy off-white lasting head, plenty of sticky lace. From a distance (arms length) I got bready yeast, sweet malt and alcohol ... up close its lush citrus/resin hops, alcohol and sweet toasty malt. The taste is reasonably strong, booze and resin/lemon pitch bitter hops, malt decidedly in the background - very warming. Average, almost creamy body, alcoholic and astringent, quick finish but a long bitter bite-into-a-grapefruit aftertaste. Excellent, really - my ears are really tingling.

Pours flat dark amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is of toasted malts, grapefruit hopps and yeast esters of grape, cherry and a bit peppery. Flavor is heavily bitter and hoppy and gets sweeter in the finish which is long. Medium bodied creamy and livley.

12 oz bottle and the best Flying Dog to date. Poured a nice amber color with an average size off white head with a slight bit of visible carbonation. Aroma is piney hops and that was all that was coming through although it wasnt to overpowering. Flavor was a real suprise with some initial malt followed loads and loads of flavorful hops. This is one fine beer that I will be buying again. (I agree with several other RBerians that this seems more like a IIPA then a double pale ale but hey what do I know Im a Minnesota Vikings fanatic and I live in NJ)

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2007
12oz. Bottle: Aroma is heavily bitter and lightly sweet. Scent is dominated by floral hops, as well as some pine and resin. Poured a copper/amber color with a small, dense, tan head that lasted throughout. Good lacing. Clear but a little hazy with many tiny particles. Not sparkling. Flavor is heavily bitter and neither sweet nor sour. Flavor is very hoppy with notes of citrus, pine, resin, and a tiny bit of malts. Medium to full body. Sticky texture. Lively carbonation. Long, dry, bitter finish. Overall, a very bitter, hoppy beer. Im not quite sure what makes is a strong ale rather than an imperial IPA.

Bottle. Orange-red pour with a light tan head. Aroma of pine and citrus with some sweet malt without anything really overpowering the other. Flavors of earthy citrus hops coupled with sweet pale malts pretty sum it up. Medium body, bittersweet throughout with a bitter finish. As far as FD brews go, this one was pretty damn good.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2007
I double dog dare you to try this hoppy brew. The brewer calls it a double pale ale, to me it is a kicked up double IPA, but whats in a name anyway! As soon as I poured this one, I could smell the fragrant citrus hop aroma. Cloudy orange/amber color with half inch off-white head that produced excellent lacing. The flavor was at first all hops in all varieties -- citrus, pine, bitter, and pretty much in that order. As it sat for a few minutes there was actually a trace of some caramel malt sweetness, but the hops still blasted through loud and clear (to my delight, I must add). No alcohol detected in the taste at all, which can be scary at 10.5%. This is a delicious beer for the hop enthusiast.

4 pack of double dog. 10.5%. dark brownish orange with a small off-white head. nice strong apricot, peachy, hop aroma. very sharp mouthfeel with the high alcohol content. med-full bodied and sticky. flavor of hops and alc. i think i would have prefered the 9% version better.

WeeHeavySD (3383) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 21, 2007
12 oz bottle purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA. Pours orange with a big stable light tan head. The aroma is malty, hoppy and citrussy. The taste is sweet and strong wtih a big hoppy bite and a decent amount of bitterness. This is a great ASA, the grapefruit that talon mentioned does come through in the tart bitterness, but after drinking so much Alpine Nelson lately it doesnt hold up well enough for me. Good Job Flying Dog.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2007
Bottle, as Double Dog Double Pale Ale, courtesy of Hogtown Harry. Deep copper, frothy white head. Lovely aroma of hops, fresh, sweet, some alcohol. Taste: holy crap, thats potent stuff. Alcohol, orange citrus, really sharp bitter hops. Soft mouthfeel, medium body. Caramel sweetness in finish, and the alcohol softens up a bit as it warms and mellows. Great great stuff, thanks Harry!

Pours an orange caramel color with a nice medium lacy tan head. Fresh pine needle and floral aroma with strong hints of grapefruit and orange citrus. Taste is grapefruity and piney hoppy with a nice caramel backbone. Tasty.
