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.

PhatB420 (641) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 30, 2011
12oz bottle into an imperial glass. Color is a mesmerizing splash of dark orange, bitter copper, rusted gold, and bright amber. Taste is piney, sour grapefruit, fresh grass, tangerine, ripe mellon, and biscutty raisin blend. Chewy to the nose, goes down with bright orange flare and yes, definatley blood orange in there. Solid and saitfying Dipa here. A standout brew with wide appeal. Taste is hoppy at first, and then bitter, and quite enjoyable.

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.

SlimHabib (198) - California, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle pour. Cloudy copper amber with a large creamy head. Hoppy aroma, with pine and some citrus. Creamy medium body. Pine and grass taste with a sharp, but quick aftertaste.

SotallyTober (19) - 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

MartinVanBeer (108) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - NOV 9, 2014
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.

Bartzilla (548) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Strong. Hoppy and syrupy. Tasty and dank. I don’t get much peach or apricot. Just delicious hops and malts. This is a delicious palate destroyer. As it warms up, the malts become thicker, almost chewy. I like this beer a lot. I will buy it again. It’s a tankard.

Arcadia (23) - DeLand, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 12oz bottle from ABC. Pours a beautiful golden brown with a frothy, robust, super long-lasting head with fantastic lacing. Aroma filled with piney hops and a slight touch of orange. Body is a deep, dark brown amber. Flavor is sweet and bitter, but not too much of either, with a similar finish. Medium body and a wonderfully creamy texture that sticks around after every sip. Acquire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled. It?s pretty much exactly like the Brewers description on the label. Formidable.
