Notes/Commercial Description:
The classic India Pale Ale is a traveler’s beer, aggressively hopped to withstand the long, hot ocean voyage to the British East Indies. Our Double-Wide I.P.A. also travels well, and is right at home in the most exotic ports of call of the Midwest. While this modern-day prairie schooner may not resemble a graceful sailing sloop, our liberal hopping regimen does make her virtually “twister-proof,” with toffee and caramel notes balancing out the lingering bitterness. Enjoy this beer fresh to best appreciate the complex blending of hop aromas, ranging from minty to citrusy, with subtle hints of pine.

A - Pours a deep amber with a two-finger tan foamy head. Lots of sticky lacing.

S - Aromas of piney hops and sweet malts.

T - Taste follows the nose. Lots of sweet malts upfront followed by a decent amount of floral piney hops. The finish has a nice lingering bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky with a dry finish.

O - A nice DIPA. Would definetly drink again.

12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass.

A - Hazy amber with 2-3 fingers of off white head.

S - Piney hops with a sweet malt backbone.

T - I get a lot of pine, along with some herbal and grassy hops. This is supplemented by a sweet caramel malt. Moderate bitterness.

M - Moderate body with moderate carbonation. There is a resinous mouthfeel.

O - Not your run of the mill IPA. A good change of pace.

a - Looks great in the glass. Three finger head that lasts throughout the beer. Beer is a cloudy golden orange color that had some sediment on the pour.

s. Pine with malt overtones.

t. I get the malt more than I would have expected. Alcohol is present, more than I would have expected on an 8.5. Has lots of imperial qualities. Pine is present, some citrus.

m. A bit dry for my taste, but still well above average.

O. A hair shy of outstanding - would welcome another anytime.

Double Wide pours a bronze color with a big, huge, fluffy lacing head. Nice big floral aroma, with warm hints of alcohol. The taste is more balanced, but strong, strong malt backbone, with a nice noticeable floral flavor, nice hints of alcohol. Good body and good feel. Overall its a good beer, very balanced yet strong.
