UPDATED: MAY 2, 2007 12 oz bottle. Lots of citrus and fruit hop aromas off this deep orangey gold pour with a very creamy tight head that lasted the whole glass. Excellent lacing as well. Flavors were more hops with a very nice malt backing. Very IIPA like. Full mouth feel. Very good beer.

Bought a 4-pack of this for my dad and took one for myself. Thanks dad! Dark copper color, no real head. HUGE hop aroma, tons of malt as well. Flavor is the same. You better be a hop-head if youre drinking this one because they are strong!. Lots of malt to back it up though. Very well balanced ASA. Id been looking for this one for a long time and it didnt disappoint when I finally got to try it.

I may have just found a new favorite. has the uber hops of an IIPA, the strong malt profile of a BW and a well hidden big alcohol presence of an Amer. Strong Ale all nicely blended into one 12 oz. offering. what more could a person ask for? well done Flying Dog, I think Ill have another.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2008 Really big fan of this. Lots of hop flavor, not overally sweet like many DIPAs. Alchol is hidden well...unless yo let it get a little warm, then....whoa! One of my new favs for sure...to bad its tough to get round these parts....

Pours a nice Mahogany if you will, deep amber if you wanna be a d*** about it. I drank a 22oz stone imperial russian stout and then this, and it got me toasty so it has that going for it. Actually very good beer. Aroma is a piny hops. Piney? piny? Has a nice hops character, not too much of an alcohol burn considering its 10.5% although you do know its there. Nice strong hops flavor, piny flavor to it. Like I said, you do know the alcohol is there, you cant taste it... but it doesnt burn so Im happy. Marginally cool bottle although no tribute to Hunter S. Thompson. Anyway, all in all I would say this is a quality brew and Id be glad to get toasty off of it anytime.

HogTownHarry (6611) - 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.

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - APR 24, 2007
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.

nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2007
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.
