12oz bottle, pretty fresh. pours cloudy amber with big fluffy white head. nose is very PNW hoppy, hop juicy, piney, grassy, citrus, peach, pinnapple, and very fresh. flavor is hoppy but tends to fall more on the sweet malt side, lots of caramel and crisp piney hops, some peach and bubblegum in there too. mouthfeel is medium, hops are fresh, lively, which makes this very fun to drink, and alcohol is very well hidden. taste like 7-8%alv. imo, this is like a bigger version of arrogant bastard and a very well done asa. harmfuldrunk (288) - New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2007

Bottle. Pours hazy, copper colored, with a decent sized off white head that settles, some lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, floral hops. Flavor is grapefruit, pine, orange, caramel malt, bitter hops. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, finishes tongue numbing bitter. Rock solid, though nothing really sets it apart.

Bouteille de 12 oz achetée chez Oak Tree Discount (South Plainfield, NJ). Arôme: Odeur fortement houblonné (Agrumes et fleurs). Apparence: La couleur est ambrée voilée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col beige mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’ananas et de pamplemousse. Longue durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est plein. Forte effervescence en bouche. L’arrière goût est astringent. Malheureusement cette bière est trop houblonnée pour moi.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Dark amber color. Big fruity hop nose, full of spoiled oranges and pine sap. Thick, a bit frothy, big on the palate. Flavors of sweet pine, sour grapefruit and lemon citrus. Bitter and coarse all over, with a wonderful oily sap and juicy orange finish, very dry and bitter. A good beer from a brewery I tend not to like.

12oz bottle. hue is rich mahogany with hints of ruby. it looks a little thicker than most FD brews. head is fluffy and thick. lacing is apparent. aromas are thick; full of brown sugar, HOPS, spruce, pine sap, a hint of toasted malts here. i could see this topping pancakes and replacin my aunt jemimas. i also get an aroma of the way that chewy caramel or taffy tastes. it’s pretty nice. it tastes thick, and mirrors the aromas almost perfectly, but adding a slight oaky-dryness. dbl dog finishes slightly bitter, but not too offensive, just appropriate. the one bit of confusion here is in the name. i had wild dog, and it tasted nothing similar. i much prefer the sequel here. westweasel (1) - Chicago Heights, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2007 does not count
The beer is a very hazy, dark apricot amber color with a small white head. Strong citrus hop smell - grapefruit for sure. The flavor is buttermilk biscuits, grapefruits, and lemons. The palate is med. - full. Overall a great beer. railcat1 (702) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2007
A good hoppy ipa and well done,dark brow and bitter but not overwhelming. with hints of floral and citrus.CHEERS Cybercat (6011) - Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2007
Wildly hoppy! Color is rich cloudy brown, promising an excellent brew. The very aroma is loaded with hoppiness and has hints of evergreen. Flavor is very hoppy and will overwhelm anyone not used to such a beer. Surprisingly, it is not super-bitter, but very drinkable if you like your beers hoppy. Recommended to all hop fanatics. jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2007
12oz bottle, as the reincarnated Double Dog, this treats me more as an IIPA rather than American strong, dark copper color with small white head, delightfully strong nose of citrus and floral just what i had hoped for, Alcohol is not really present to me as the hop profile is immense, a great brew very pleased i got to grab some.
