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.

12oz bottle.A hazy medium orange amber with an offwhite lasting head,light lacing on the pour. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, mild plum notes,yeast with some citrus floral hops. Taste same as aroma, a sweet mild alcohol flavor with God bitterness. Palate is a full bodied smooth mouthfeel, goes down easy and good carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel malt, yeast and fruity with a good citrus floral hops bitterness for balance. Overall a very good full flavored and nicely balanced brew.

Cold outta the fridge Double Wide started sweet with little hop presence. Ruby red grapefruit in color,
it maintained a frothy head with a mild nose of orange and earth. Taste followed with orange and tangerine
up front with a light bitter finish. As it warmed the hop depth came to light with more Florida citrus accompanying
some pine and earthiness. Drinkability is high as sips lead to gulps. I'd definitely drink again, especially if offered
in 12oz format...

This beer is the only thing I miss about living in Missouri. If you like IPAs you will like this one. Lots of hops, but not to the point of being overly bitter. Great drinkability with a wonderful aroma
