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.

Bottle sampled at RBSG ’08. Pours with an amber-gold body topped by a thick head with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet and hoppy with notes of pine and grapefruit adn a nice maltiness. Medium to full bodied, smooth and slightly warming.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Pours dark gold amber, with a medium off white head. Smells of rich crisp hops, with a nice little malt backbone and citrus as well. Standard IPA nose. The flavor was nicely balanced, the citrus fruit came through a bit more I thought with a little peppery spice in there too. The hop bitterness gave it a bite in the finish and was very warming going down for some reason. Nice IPA. Very solid.

StefanSD (2069) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle at RBSG grand tasting. Thanks to whoever brought it. Pours a murky copper color with a big off-white head. The Aroma was of fresh biter hops with citrus and floral notes. The taste was hops forward with complex biter hops pine, grapefruit and chlorophyll. The mouthfeel was full and malty. The finish was long and biter. Overall: A very impressive IPA

Sammy (8351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2008
This brewery is hammering some dingers. This is a very good (1.5X) IPA. Creamy with grapefruit. There is more hop than bitterness. The balance is terrific.

Massive head. Poured a clear amber color, with a very hoppy aroma. Flavor was a little malty with a subtle grapefruit taste. Overall very good.

Tejas (864) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Huge head. Not bad but certainly not great. Harsh hoppy bite on this one. Sort of stings the tongue. This one got better as it warmed up but then again my palate might have just adjusted to the harshness. I do dig the 750ml though.

Large offwhite head, good retention and plenty of lace to go around. Hazy, orange body with darker edging. Fat hop nose of citrus, pine, somewhat floral and some lightly sweet malts backing them up. Med/full bodied, nicely resiny and heavily coating, maybe a bit too coating? Lotsa hop flavors mostly juicey orangey citrus, melons, grapefruit with a solid malt backing, nicely fruity. . A big hop blast lingers in the long bitter finish. Props to mreusch for the corked and caged 750.

kosko20 (350) - Hopewell Junction, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Sweet, strong aroma of pine and fruits. Looks good, reddish glow to it. Yeah, flavors of orange and lemon along with bitterness of the hops. Not a great beer but I love IPAs so it does it for me.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2008
Deep red, lots of foam. Nose barely there, a faint hint of pine, bit resiny, but not much going on. Flavor . . . there’s supposed to be hops here, right? I mean, kind of hoppy, definitely bitter, but more just harsh than anything else. Bit of pine, I guess. Lots of malts, sure, but they’re kind of flat, kind of sweet, but not much going on. Weird cookie-ish finish to it, gets incredibly dry. Does have a really nice palate, which just makes me say "there should be more going on here than there is." Really a pretty sucky IPA.
