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.

Murky dark orange with a medium white head. Aroma is a bit stingy with a lot of fruity hops, caramel malts. Body is medium and carbonation balanced. Nice bitter finish. Good one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle pours a cloudy copper color. With very nice off-white fluffy head that lasts long. Nice Pine and some sweet toffee aromas. Full-bodied with some alcohol burn. Pine dominates the hop flavor A bit harsh in the end. Not great.

12 Oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a frothy white head. Aromas of citrusy hops and barnyard yeast. Flavor of piney and floral hops with sweet., honey flavored grain. Finishes with a citrusy hops linger and cloying sugars. Full body with a thick mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, some nice flavors, but aroma is somewhat lacking.

Pours hazy blood-orange. 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. Overall, an excellent DIPA, greatly balancing its 8.5% ABV with hops and malt.

Bottle poured. Copper color with off white frothy head. Has a nutty malty aroma with citrus hops. Medium body and lightly carbonated. Starts off with a hint of sweetness but finishes very bitter. The bitter after taste sticks around for a long time.

SotallyTober (33) - Channahon, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Pours a murky amber with a thick egg shell head that left lacing throughout. There’s a citrus, apricot, and pine aroma. The taste was very well balanced, not too sweet or overly bitter. Flavor’s of citrus, apricot, grapefruit, pine, and caramel. Medium body that was creamy and chewy on the palate. Overall a very satisfying DIPA.

Pours a hazy amber with a thin film. Nose of citrus and pine. Taste is somewhat sweet - lots of citrus, pretty smooth (would prefer slightly more bitterness), and a little syrupy. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another delightful smokestack beer. Citrus and perfume aroma. Lush body with notes of tropical fruit and subtle toasty malt. Easy finish with a touch of sweetness. A surprisingly easy drinking DIPA that still has a lot of flavor.
