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.

Cloudy, deep copper coloring with a foamy beige head. Clumping up nicely into tasty globs. No visible carbonation.

Pine needles and grapefruit on the nose. Not overbearing though. Smells like it won't be that heavy.

Interesting, need another sip. Not typical. Very subtle at first, then starts to sizzle on the tip of your tongue. Tart hoppy finish that sticks around on your breath.

Watery up front. Slight boozy burn on the finish. Some lingering waxy feeling.

Good, high abv IPA. You do notice the alcohol though and it might keep me from ordering more than one at a bar.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a deep brownish-orange amber with a nice ivory head that slowly dissipated to a clotted skim of foam. Good lacing at the beginning, not so much as the level went down.

Aroma was very citrusy, good whiff of oranges. Mouthfeel is tending toward thick with good prickly carbonation.

Taste hits the mark for a DIPA. Strong hop notes of overripe oranges and other citrus jump out first with a smoky malt base underneath to even things out. Slight whiff of alcohol at the tail end, as might be expected.

Fine DIPA. Wish I had more than one bottle out of a gift 4-pack. Hope to find this on tap someday.
