Double Dog is Flying Dog Brewery's American Strong Ale, at 11.5 % ABV and 85 IBUs. This beer is brewed with Light Crystal malts and hopped with Columbus, Warrior, and Cascade hops. Double Dog pours out a soft orange gold with brassy highlights and a two inch head that settles with good lacing on the pint glass. Double Dog's nose is of gentle citrus, a sweet spot, pines, and some bread malts. The taste is bold and distinctive, opening with citrus, a pure sort of sweetness, lemon and mint, and then some alcohol warmth and pith, ending on a sweet note. This is a smooth, full-bodied strong ale, with the right mix of bitter and sweet. Enjoy Double Dog in a snifter or Trappist glass, and if you like, pair it with strong cheeses, grilled meat, or salmon.
