Slightly orange brown with a foamy white head. Generous lacing. Nose is faint fruity hop. Taste is fairly bitter, but milder than most west coast IPAs. Medium body, vigorous carbonation. Good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Appearance is an opaque orange / amber color with visible particles in suspension; maybe yeast or hop proteins. Had about an inch of fluffy white head which quickly dissipated. Aroma. I’m getting almost nothing on the nose. Maybe a very slight sweetness, but certainly nothing floral or piney. Taste: Wow, very bitter with a lingering back of the mouth tang. The effervescence of the carbonation and the hops work well together. Getting a definite warming sensation after my second sip. Palate: Medium body, not syrupy, but not watery either.

Poured orange with a white head. Aroma is fruity and slightly sour. Flavor is medium sweetness with low bitterness and slightly sour. This is very similar in flavor to JP Oro de Calabaza.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2008
Draught, Boulder Strong Ale Fest 2008. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie), moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers, orange), moderately yeasty (barnyard, horseblanket), with notes of dried mango, ginger, band-aid, wood. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Awesome aroma...both fruity and wild in a nicely integrated fashion. Not quite as amazing in the mouth experience, but this makes me want to retry the regular Double Wide for sure, which I didn’t care for at all (at GABF 07).

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2008
2008 Boulder Strong Ale Fest: Cloudy and gold; decent head. Great mouthfeel. Very vibrant and aromatic. Malts were grainy and lightly toasted. Subtle sweetness. Huge pepper from start to finish. Snappy spices, flowers, herbs and a pinch of perfume. Loved the aromas. Mild fruit flavors and farmy yeast in the background. Great stuff ... one of my favorites from the ’08 festival.

BlackForestCO (975) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2008
On tap...definitely a different beer. Poured a hazy, deep yellow color with a moderate white head. Aroma of funky brett, cobwebs, and some citrus from the hops. Some malt with caramel undertones upon entry, but that quickly turned to funky barnyard with some leathery flavor and light hops peaking through in the finish. Crisp and slightly tart. Doesn’t seem at all like a IIPA, but it was still nice.

Ratman197 (9042) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2008
On tap @ Boulder Strong Ale Fest poured a cloudy copper with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of carmel, fruittiness, leather and light horseblanket. Palate was light bodied crisp lightly tart with a dry finish. Flavors of leather, carmel, horseblanket and light fruittiness with a crisp dry lightly tart finish.
