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 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

Bottle. Hazy copper with a huge yellowish head. Orange and caramel nose. Starts out moderately sweet, but follows a more complex route with some sourness, smoke and citrussy hop bitterness. Mellow citrus. Original.

JBPortland (678) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 24, 2014
12oz bottle thanks to Lukaduke! Pours dark clear ruby red with big 3 finger head. Nose is sweet malty fruit, medicinal cherry, hints of piney lemon. Taste is heavy malt, sweet robitussin cherry, cranberry, touches of pine and citrus. Finish is bitter and sweet fruity malt. Well made but just not a big fan of this style ipa.

mikeyo1 (152) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange copper with a small white head. Aroma is mild but nice for a dipa, apricots pine apple and some grape and caramel. Taste is dry of grape & pine with refreshing carbonation. Dry aftertaste, distinct grape and orange bitterness. Well balanced but lacks some dipa sweetness

CarlJonas (211) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2014
Cloudy orange, small pale head. Grapefruit aroma. Distinctly bitter but pretty well balanced, and once again a lot of blood grapefruit. Quite dry, medium carbonation. Bit dry, but still a very good DIPA.

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

Flaske 0,75l fraVinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Mørkebrun/amber. Veldig høyt tett skum som varer. Fin lacing. Herlig fruktaroma. Fersken. Rik fruktsmak. Plommer & mandler. God fylde. Syrlig & litt tørr ettersmak. Brukt som drikke til fårikål - og det passet utmerket.

borre_m (238) - NORWAY - FEB 14, 2014
Pours amber with an off white head.There is a lot of hop aroma in this beer and you get a pleasent floral aroma, drinking it is a balanced beer. The hops are backed up by malty flavors, and at 8.5 % ABV. Flavor has loads of hop bitterness, some caramel. Loads of hops and a very good double IPA.

trujahwarrior (506) - Monroe, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2014
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.
