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.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 12oz bottle from ABC. Pours a beautiful golden brown with a frothy, robust, super long-lasting head with fantastic lacing. Aroma filled with piney hops and a slight touch of orange. Body is a deep, dark brown amber. Flavor is sweet and bitter, but not too much of either, with a similar finish. Medium body and a wonderfully creamy texture that sticks around after every sip. Acquire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bork (452) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Flavorful brew with pine, orange, malts and a wee bit of citrus in good proportions. Long pleasant bitterness that does not take over. No alcohol in taste, although undoubtedly strong.

Transfer from BA review on 4-29-14- Poured from bottle into a snifter Appearance – The beer pours a beautiful hazed orange-amber color with an almost ruby tint and with a massive head of an off white color. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of hoppy aromas with a pine and grapefruit hop smell being the strongest. Tons of tropical fruit smells are there as well with a tangerine and mango base but with other fruit smells of melon, pineapple and a bit of berry in there as well. Along with these are some malty aromas of a slightly bready and doughy nature, mixing with the hop and sweet to produce quite a tasty smelling brew. Taste – The taste begins with a more doughy flavor with a sweetness being mainly of a caramel nature there too. A moderately strong hop presence is there at the start as well, with it consisting mainly of a grapefruit flavor, but having some hints of pine mixed within. As the flavor advances the caramel sweetness begins to fade, but the brew actually gets a bit sweeter in nature due to, as the nose would of predicted, a tropical fruit flavor of tangerine, mango and papaya coming to the tongue. Along with the change of the sweet flavors of the brew, more hop flavors also come to the tongue. The grapefruit that was present upfront remains at the same strength, but the pine hop gains intensity and is furthermore joined by some grassy hop flavors. With the new fruit and hop flavors that come to the tongue and a little bit of an alcohol taste that comes at the very end of the taste, one is left with a rather pleasant and slightly warming fruity and well balanced flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average to lower side. The slightly lower carbonation works quite well for coupling the sweeter fruit flavors to the blend of hops and doughy flavor with the medium body thickness playing a nice middle ground between the sweet and hop flavors of the brew. Overall – This was a very enjoyable double IPA I must say. It had a nice balance between sweet fruitiness, hop, and breadiness/doughiness all while maintaining a rather smooth easy drinking style. Quite delicious.

Fresh bottle. Pours clear gold/orange with white, foamy head. Aroma is orange zest, faint peach, fresh grass. Lots of citrus in the taste with some good caramel malt chew to it. A solid DIPA.

This is a good one. A really good one. I didn’t know I was going into the damn pine forest. So much pine but not limited to that. Sweet peach and citrus comes through in the clutch to just assault your nostrils. So good. Tastes like straight up peach, citrus, tropical onion garlic soup. Amazing. Just super delicious. I’m excited about this one. This was a really good surprise. I picked it up because Boulevard wheat is a great wheat beer so I saw double IPA and had to have it. It’s totally worth it. Cheers!
