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.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2012
Corked bottle from QFC - Seattle (Ballard)
Cloudy dark amber color; generous creamy head. Nice aroma, very hoppy, yet balanced: bitter oranges, resins; then some malt and some cheesy yeast in the end. Good body strength, yet the mouthfeel is leaner than the average within the style; good flavor, of caramel, toffee, toasted malt, and (positive point) without the chewy malts; it has strong bitterness, with a good share of resins, some bitter oranges. Very long final.
Potent yet well drinkable and balanced. Excellent.
