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.

Crazy head on this piece. I really enjoy the hop profile on this. It’s a bit faded, but then it’s just good malt sweetness w/ good hops. Nice finish. MMM very good hops. A little sticky perhaps.

Golden amber color with bubbly white head. Aroma is kind of stale hops. Floral and citrus hops most notably. Not a horribly bitter flavor. Very well balanced with the malts. Finishes with a nice, dry bitter. All right beer.

fidelis83 (1975) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Pours milky dark amber, with 2 finger chunky tan head that lasts and leaves some lacing. Aroma is floral and grassy hops, green walnuts, and wild flowers. Flavor is sweet grapefruit, light caramel malts, starfruit, a little alcohol in the tail end followed by bitter and citrus hops. Palate is medium thinckness and a little sticky.

750 mL bottle. A fairly strong aroma, not overly potent though, good amount of floral and grassy hop, with a decently prominent red berry malt, nothing wrong here. Dark orange in color, mostly opaque and cloudy, very large pour with an off-cream color head, good staying power, ok lacing, again no complaints. An almost suprisingly sweet backbone throughout for a single ipa with melon fruit, bitter hop takes over in the finish though of more of the herbal/grassy variety than citrus in my opinion, lingering aftertaste is almost there for me, but not quite, pretty full body, pretty thick feel, (could have been a little lighter). In the end, I’m very happy with this beer (Boulevard is continuing to impress) and there were just a few nick-picky things i have complaints about, but not many.

Batch 08095. Pours with a huge, rocky, off-white head. Hazy amber body with somee very small particles floating around. Great lacing. Flowery-citrus hops with a tad bit of spiceyness, and caramel in the aroma. Taste is caramely with light hops in the bak, but the finish is sweet overall, not bitter. This seems like a weak DIPA to me, not a regular IPA. Light bubbles.

steview (1021) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 28, 2008
quite a creamy version of the style--and it looks almost like a quad, with such a nice and rocky tan head; pine, tropical fruits and peels, smooth malt backing with sharp hops gives an interesting paradox for an interesting beer that is both calm and sweet, and intense and bitter--good balance, and ironically, wish it had less IBUs.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Bottled from Bev4Less. Dark hazy amber color upon pouring. Sweet aroma with some citric hoppiness. Somewhat fruity. Fairly spicy hoppiness. Balanced with some sweetness and malts. A little richer and more roasty than your standard SoCal IPA.
