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.

Pour is a orange with a large tan head. Aroma is excellent! Huge fresh pine hops with a good amount of caramel malts to round things out. Flavor is decent as well. Very dry with a nice pine hop and some green tea. Malts are not as strong as in the aroma but there are enough to show up and make an appearance. Well done and Iíve heard this may not be around for awhile due to the hop shortage. Iím glad i got to try it.

A good one from Boulevard. Hazy amber body with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops with some pine, caramel, apricot. Citrus hops dominate the flavor. Crisp, refreshing, with a bitter (in a good way) aftertaste.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2008
Bottle... Hazy amber ale with orange highlights. Mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. The aroma puts forth notes of pine needs, grapefruit, apricot and caramel. Full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Tastes much like it smells. A mildly sweet, caramel malt backbone supports medium bitter, citrusy and earthy hops. The lengthy finish is more bitter than sweet and winds up dry. Thanks to PhillyBeer2112 for providing the bottle!
