Name – Double Dog
Country – United States
Type – American Double IPA
Appearance – Poured a murky copper/reddish color. Really no head but it did leave some lacing.
Smell – Caramel like smell is apparent with citrusy and piney hop notes.
Taste – A nice big hop taste that is then very well balanced out with some sweet caramel and malts. It’s great to see such balance in a big beer. There is a slightly boozy taste to it especially when it warms up.
A really good all around DIPA. Love the balance of hops and malts in there. Flying Dog doesn’t play around with their big beers and this another of the Canis Major group that comes out on top.
Overall Grade – A-
