Flying Dog Brewing – Double Dog Pale Ale – Canis Major variety pack purchased at Dawsons Liquors in Severna Park, MD. Poured from a 7oz bottle into a pint glass. 11.5% abv.
Appearance: Amber, cloudy with 1/2 inch of nice head which dissipated after five minutes.
Aroma: Dandelions and dry leaves.
Taste: Fantastic. Lots of bitterness from the get-go that mellows on the finish. Lick your lips and you get a hint of grapefruit.
Mouthfeel: Light carbonation, slightly creamy. Very pleasant to roll around the different parts of your mouth to pick up nuances.
Drinkability: Extremely high. I couldn’t wait to take the next sip, but at 11.5%, this can hurt you fast. My favorite Flying Dog product I’ve had so far…. by far.
