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.

The pour here is great, hazy deep orange with a big fluffy off white head that lasts forever and leaves loads of lacing.
Some dipa fans might not like this because it doesn't go for the west coast bitter/citric flavors. The hop flavors here are much more herbal and piney with mint, pine needles, a bit of persimmon on the fruity side, and some bitter grassy notes. Biscuity/hay malt comes through. Maybe rosemary? As it warms, a bit more fruitiness comes out, and candied orange makes an appearance.
I'm quite a fan of this, definitely goes for a different approach than most american dipas, a little bit sweet but full of flavor.
