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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours a hazy orange amber color with a 1" head that slowly falls to a spotty surface foam.

Smell: caramel, citrus, and some earthiness comes through to the nose.

Taste: carmel, grapefruit, light orange, some soft pine resin, and a moderate earthy bitterness create a well balanced beer.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp from start to finish with a bit of dryness arriving very late.

Overall: an easy to drink DIPA that had a nice flavor profile and was nicely refreshing.

A - Orange in color two fingers of a tan head, medium lacing.
S - Really sweet smelling malt, some grapefruit, but those smells arent very powerful.
T - Caramel malts are big here, then you get some really ripe juicy tropical flavors, followed by a dry floral hop bitterness.
M - Pretty balanced still a tad chewy.
O - Decent double IPA, glad I got to try it, its on part with most others in its realm.

This is a really good IIPA - in my opinion. I sort of surprised me, as it had a "honey-like" undertone as it warmed, but the hops were still prevalent and well balanced.

I would recommend that anyone that enjoys this style of beer tries this one.
