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.

355 ml bottle purchased from Kroger in Atlanta. Hazy orange brown colour with medium head. Spicy fruity taste with a distinct citrus/grapefruit peel tone and a hint of caramel. Truly excellent and probably the best ipa i’ve sampled on my US southeast roadtrip.

KajII (779) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2014
12oz Bottle. The pour was a murky brownish orange with an average (1-2 finger) light tan frothy head that was mostly lasting, reducing to a moderate soapy film with large collar that lasted throughout and had excellent sheets of sticky lacing.

The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, pine hops and a cheesy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and citrus (orange and lemon).

The taste was lightly acidic and very malty with a decent caramel sweetness from the onset, becoming rather hoppy with a good bold piney presence and a bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted for a very long time proceeding the swallow, with a boldly bitter hoppy taste left behind to linger just a tad longer.

Mouthfeel was a bit below medium in body and dry in texture with a strong medium carbonation.

Overall this was a highly impressive tasting IPA. It possessed a mild malty sweetness that blended perfectly with the bitter piney citrus flavor which did a superb job of concealing the somewhat high ABV, except for a light alcohol warming sensation right at the end... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Kopparfärgad med stort ljusbrunt skum. Doft av tropisk humle och karamellmalt men inte så mycket som jag trodde! Lite trött tyvärr!

Pours a nice reddish amber color with a slightly golden/white head. Aroma of malt, pine, and citrus. Nice sweet citrus flavor up front, followed by a grassy spicy hop finish. Great IPA.

boxofrane (2055) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear copper with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has pine and grapefruit. The taste has a dry medium bitter, citrus, caramel. Solid but unspectacular.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle at the cabin in NH. Pours perfectly clear, deep gold with a large, lasting off-white froth head. The nose holds lightly spicy pine, ripe mango, mild dank citrus. Medium to big sweet flavor with lots of ripe fruits, citrus, papaya, light alcohol and moderate piney bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation and creamy texture. Warming finish, fairly resinous, with more ripening citrus, booze, mango, pine and papaya. Quite heavy-duty but not at all bad. Mild florals and berries as well. Good ripe mango character lingers.

Beautiful amber pour from bottle with long lasting tan head. It tastes like a double and is a bit boozy. Not really for me, but solid nonetheless. Duces. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
