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.

Poured a caramel, amber color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki white head. Good foamy lacing on the sides of the cup. Good retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled caramel malts, soapy pine, peach, dried apricot, citrus hops and floral hops.

Tasted similar to the nose. Got caramel malts, wet Cascade hops, peach, apricot, soapy pine and floral hops.

Light-to-medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long finish.

A pretty good double IPA. I’d have it again for sure.

I'm not an expert, but it's the best IPA I've had yet.
It has a nice amber appearance, but it does have a lot of sediments. Maintains a very good head on it, so it continues to look very good.

The smell is amazing. Very floral, fruity, and bright. Just smelling it really heightened my level of excitement, and enhanced the overall experience.

Taste is smooth, and caramel at first sip. Then the floral and fruity notes take over. The finish is smooth and the caramel notes balance out the bitterness really well. The beer leaves a great taste in your mouth. My wife and I even complimented on the great taste of out burps. It may be inappropriate for a review, but this beer is just as good coming out, as it is going in.

The Mouth feel is smooth, rich, but clean. Not too Gassy. Just perfect for my taste.

Overall, I love this beer. This is one I can drink over and over again. I'm new to tasting and reviewing craft beers, but I'm not new to drinking them. So Far, this is my favorite IPA.
