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.

Thanks to dujayhawk for this one. Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into pint glass (primarily because I failed to read the directions...oops).

A: Hazy, translucent ruddy amber, with a one and a half finger white head and great visible carbonation.

S: Seems diminished overall - kind of weak. But what is there is sweet caramel malt, citrus/orange hops. I'm going to bump up the score a half point from what it would have been, as I suspect the overall impact of the aroma would have been enhanced if I used a snifter as the bottle label requested.

T: Starts with caramel and toffee malty sweetness with some citrus hops, then fades into a nice pine bitterness, and the hang is citrus pith & caramel sweetness. Very well balanced on the tongue.

M: Fairly highly carbonated, medium mouthfeel. Pronounced alcohol presence but stops just short of detracting.

O: A good beer that toes the line between DIPA and barleywine. I'm a little sad I didn't pour it into the appropriate glassware. Recommended to try, but I don't think I'll actively search another one out.
