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.

I was honestly drawn to this beer by its pinot noir style bottle. This is an alternative rock IPA which gives you a little more than your standard citrus/hop flavor. You can really smell this one when you pour it, with notes of peach and apricot. Pours a murky burnt orange with a pillowy, creamy head. The body is very smooth, with the standard citrus and hop burst followed by the peach, apricot and some mango flavors. A very interesting take on this style and it, is gentle for a double.

Bottle. Copper amber pour with tan head. Strong spice, floral and herbal hop aromas. Flavors are more mild, hop wise; some spice and herbal tones.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a copper color and hazy with a nice off white head. Aroma is citrus, pine, and mango. Taste of grapefruit, lemon, and some soapy notes. There is also a few sweet malt notes in there, but I found the hops to be dominant and very tasty. This was a nice extra I got in a trade. The best by date was even stamped in July but this was still awesome!

Big flavorful nose and sweet hoppy body. A little bit chewy of a mouthfeel but not too bitter.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Paper hotel cup From: Total Wine in Ballantyne (Charlotte), N.C. Price: $2.99 Purchased: July 30, 2014 Consumed: Aug. 1, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a caramel, amber color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki white head. Good foamy lacing on the sides of the cup. Good retention on the top all the way down. Smelled caramel malts, soapy pine, peach, dried apricot, citrus hops and floral hops. Tasted similar to the nose. Got caramel malts, wet Cascade hops, peach, apricot, soapy pine and floral hops. Light-to-medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long finish. A pretty good double IPA. I’d have it again for sure.

ericdevin (763) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Unknown. Pours a cloudy medium dark amber, lots of off white head. Aroma caramel, plums, graham cracker. Body full and light, finish really malty and undefined, wet cardboard. Past its best, which is a shame based on the ratings. Will re-rate with a fresh bottle.
