COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double-Wide I.P.A. uses Columbus and Magnum hops for both bittering and aroma with Chinook hops added in the whirlpool. It is dry hopped with generous amounts of Cascade, Centennial, and Chinook hops. The resulting beer has a hop forward aroma, redolent of peach and apricot. The assertive flavor bursts with the citrus qualities of blood orange and lemon with a slight caramel malt backbone to balance the intense hop flavor. There is little restraint in the flavor of this beer; it is certainly not for the pedestrian palate.

Very pungent, hoppy smelling IPA. I could smell it while I was pouring it. Great overall aroma - fruity, citrus, a little malty. Love the champagne-style bottle; I’m including that in appearance. One of the darker IPA’s I have seen. Beautiful amber color. Giant head of foam that takes forever to go away. Head sticks around for too long in my opinion, the only thing keeping it from a 5 in appearance. Taste is all malt up front, hops only in the aftertaste and even then the hops are not all that strong. A bit metallic as well. Kind of a basic tasting IPA. Palate is fairly thick for the style with good aftertaste, but again the metallic taste comes out there. Perhaps it was just this bottle. Worth drinking, but I’ve had better.

Sigmund (5116) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2014
750 ml corked and caged bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.5%. Hazy deep orange to amber colour, large off-white head. Delightful sweetish aroma of fruity American hops, notes of oranges. Very hoppy flavour on a solid malty base, notes of oranges again, the bitterness is distinct but not too extreme. A very fine beer!

Citrusy, slightly sweet, nice head. Barely boozy, very smooth, would have liked more hops, fairly mild and smooth all around for a brew of its type. Nice head, heavy malt, really enjoyed the beer, easy to drink.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2014
c/o UncleMike. Thanks again! Aroma - this is a 1st electric wire insulation and citrus. Appearance - nice orange/brown body; liquid is hazy; the head was awesome about 2 1/2" and beige; nice lacing as well Taste - not super bitter, very complex there is a Centennial hop quality, a little effervescent champagne yeast about it. There is a little citrus going on as well. Palate - the body is medium; the texture just barely oily; the carbonation average to lively; the finish almost champagne like

Hazy orange pour with a soapy head. Fruity nose. Flavor is packed with citrus and other fruits hovering over a malty, caramel base. Alcohol is masked really well and it is highly drinkable.

Bygers (775) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle 0,75l. Pours a clear amber colour with a big foamy head on top with massive lacing. Aroma has citrus, pines, tropical fruits, sweet toffee malts and grapefruit. Taste starts with sweet fruits and toffee malts, then zesty grapes and citrus kick in before bitter pines, hops and floral ending. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

desrochesb (40) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
une bière forte à tout points de vu! forte en alcool, chargé de goûts de grains multiple et une amertume qui ne laisse pas indifférant. tout ce à quoi je m’attend d’une double ipa

MrFecesious (959) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2014
On tap at baileys. Hazy rose/amber with a dense off-white cap, nice lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, citrus zest, caramel, bubblegum, pine needles, juice. Taste is a forward fruity sweetness with a soft approaching hop/citrus bitterness. Medium carbonation, silky mouthfeel. Sustained dry finish. Brilliant balance.

Hartung32 (216) - Indiana, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Very well balanced DIPA; great malt balance for a DIPA. That said, I actually like my IPAs balanced and DIPAs overly hoppy. Because of this personal preference, this isn't in my first tier of DIPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
