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.

these guys just came to the tri-state, and boy am I happy about it.

first thing that strikes me is, what a design feel - it looks and feels like what i daydream anchor beers could look like when i don't have them in my hand - oh so classic, entertaining, and informative.

this truly is the double wide. the caramel malt doesn't balance, it positively glides across the ballroom floor, hand in hand, bodies intermingling as the brilliant hop hues spin into view one moment, the velvety tuxedoed debonair of malt the next. this is cocktails at the met. this is a date at birdland, 1950. this is a hike up mount rainier.

The presentation is just phenomenal - the dusky amber haze of the body with a head sporting the most subtle creamish tinge - this is a beer that makes you wish you could take a bite out of it.

if you enjoy the clouds that form in the remnants of the head after you've forgotten about your beer for a time because you were jamming, you'll enjoy this beer.
