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.

Found a bottle (12oz) for 5 bucks. Figured it was worth the money since most Boulevard beers are 6+ dollars here. Into a pint glass

A - A very deep shade of brown amber almost old ale looking with a hazy body. Carbonation is decent giving me a 1/4 inch of opaque head that sticks around for a while.
S - No ethanol smell its actually very nice but faded so I think the bottles old. Good juicy citrus and pine hops mixed in with a gramn cracker like malt sweetness.
T - Very bitter and abrasive but equally as malty with a sweet edge that takes the edge off. No lingering bitterness or alcohol taste. Quite good.
M - Thicker than most DIPA's it coats the mouth the ABV is noted but it doesn't taste heavy.

Overall its a good DIPA very well crafted with no harsh bitter taste and a very good body. I would get this again if it was more affordable.
