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.

12oz bottle poured into my ipa glass. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a thick fluffy off white head that stays the whole time. Leaves great lacing as well. Smells of pine, apricot, peach, citrus and caramel. Tastes of the same things that are in the smell with a slight hop bite in the back end. Mouthfeel is slick and creamy with good carbonation and a dry finish. One of the more unique tasting ipas around. Very smooth, you can’t taste the higher abv like you can in some double ipas. Another masterpiece in the smokestack series.

interesting hops flavor - more mild apricot than any other IPA I can recall tasting. Nicely balanced with just the right caramel malts for a very easy to drink, slightly sweet taste and just a hint of bitterness on the backside. This is an IPA that anyone would enjoy, beer snob or otherwise... Definitely worth trying, and if you are in Kansas City, MO I think it would be worth a trip to see where it is made.

A nice, hoppy (but not overdone) IPA. Bottle poured a nice frothy head that lingered. -via BBapp

Clean and smooth on the palate but lacking in distinctive character. Perfectly drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: Hoppy, mild fruity and a bit sweet malty.
Palate: Medium + body. Slightly sweet and a nice bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Hoppy, fruity and a bit dominant malty.

Great double IPA that is really smooth and not overly bitter even at 8.5%. Has all the common IPA characteristics.

Hopped up beer that delivers exactly what it promises. The variety of hops used in the brew process rear their heads at the appropriate time in the drinking experience. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A solid beer courtesy Secret Santa. Thanks man! Aroma was good. Apricot and peach are the main smells. I’ve been out of the brewing game for a while so I’m guessing this a Magnum hop thing. Pour was a beautiful hazy dark burnt orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was nice. Not a real fan of the tropical fruit/melon flavors in IPAs these days, but this is still a solid beer. The apricot and peach are more pronounced with honeydew and cantaloupe mingling in. Not much bitterness, but nice strong carbonation.
