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.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Cloudy copper colour, rich head. Intense tropical fruit aroma. Sweet and soft with full body. Malt sweet and intensely hoppy. Lots of mango and salted lychee. Mid bitter finish. Excellent, unusually relaxed double IPA with concentrated flavours and no edges.
