Notes: If I were you, I'd consider logging off social media tonight. After all, Double Dog nights can get unpredictable...and the internet is forever. With an ABV over 12%, this wild, untamed Double IPA is seductively full-bodied, with a deep red color and subdued malty sweetness. Dried-fruit aromatics make it an ideal companion to hard cheeses that you'll forget you ate in the morning. As world famous artist Ralph Steadman put it so succinctly, Double Dog is, "For that night. That other goddamn night."

The previous comment that this beer is somewhere between a 90 Minute and a 120 Minute is dead accurate.

I like it a lot.

Pours a cider-look shade of light brown, effervescent.
Lot going on on the tongue
Tastes and feels like a 12% for sure, but the unique taste makes it easy to sip.

Slowly enjoying this delicious IPA from an ice-cold pilsner glass. Beer is from a 12oz bottle. Smooth soft taste with a very pleasant finish. I will definitely buy this beer again!!

I must rate this by both taste and style. It drinks more like an American Barleywine than any IPA, a style that does not suit my tastes at all. Both chock full of hops and at the same time sickly malt. I drank 1 of the 6 and swapped the rest with a local BA.

Well chilled 12 ounce bottle, straight up in my hotel room, wrapped in a bottle koosh.
Nondescript aroma; sour orange and pine.
Taste bomb! Generously hopped, fine malt backbone, yeast balances it out. Nicely bitter finish with warmth lingering.
Heavy as a 12% ABV WCDIPA should be, with a medium carbonation glide.
Overall, this is the Big Nasty DIPA I been looking for. It’ll be easy to knock this 6 pack down over 2 evenings!
No distro to South Florida.,. guess I’ll have to import a few in my luggage.,.

The wife who wants to cut me off at 2 beers makes this a 4.25. The immediate improvement in all apects of beer enjoyment from beer #1 to beer #2 makes this a 4.25. The fact that a six pack lasts twice as long makes this a 4.25. Keep a six handy for when the wife is on high alert.
I'm updating this review several months later. I've experimented with double IPA's and many varieties of high octane beers. Price disregarded, I keep on coming back to these. They cannot be beat. It says on the bottom of the six pack "The beer you are about to drink may, in fact, change your life." I'm not sure about that, but my opinion after 58 years of going at it hard, is why drink anything else?

Drank from the 19.2oz tall can. Aroma has notes of toast, biscuit, grapefruit, pine, some spice underneath. The taste is pretty balanced up front, spiraling more out of control as the beer moves through the palate. Biscuit malt comes through first with some sweetness, then comes some hoppiness - earthy, slightly fruity, resinous. Slight citrus and some brown sugar maybe. Finishes strong with some warming alcohol. Overall this beer is a good IPA that somewhat hides its strength. Would get again.

Surprisingly drinkable. Hoppy and Malty. Feels like one step between dogfish’s 90 and 120 minute IPAs. Bb 6/19/22
