Man Bites Dog - Flying Dog Double Pale Ale

Flying Dog Double Dog Double Pale Ale

Well, well ... what have we here? Double Dog is twice the beer that Snake Dog is. Hoppy, dry, and bitter, this pale ale packs a punch. The aroma is light and citrusy. The flavor plays out the same in the middle of the sip, when the beer is on the back of the tongue, ready to go down. Finally, the finish is extra hoppy. The dryness and hoppy bitterness hide out for a second then materialize like they were just beamed up from some distant planet.

But wait, we're not done! The citrus notes come back at the very end and clean things up. The hops can then call out to the taste buds, "Hey, remember me? Hops. Go ahead, have another sip. I'll take care of things." Which is cool considering some hoppy ales tell your taste buds, "Shut up and sit down."

Alright, Flying Dog is back on my list. I was a bit disappointed in the past but the Double Dog is on the right track. When things aren't going the way you thought they would, double up on the hops. Success! This beer is for intermediate hop-heads and advanced drinkers. Double Dog is friendly, but he nips if you pull his tail. 10.5% abv gets your tail to waggin'.

I say my fine fellow....I am going to have to try these beer beverages that you speak of. I do hope there are no side affects to drinking these "beers"
