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.

Double Wide I.P.A.
12 oz brown bottle
Best by 07/27/12
Served in a 20 oz tulip glass

I picked up a single of Boulevard Double Wide I.P.A. about a month ago and I'm finally getting around to reviewing this brew.

Pours a hazy burnt orange with a reddish tint. I notice some mini carbonation bubbles on the bottom of the glass that quickly race to the top. A huge fluffy and frothy white head forms on top and sustains itself, leaving odd trails of sticky lace.

A syrupy sweet malt backbone is the first thing I notice about this beer with a toasted biscuit flavor and juicy caramel malt. The flavors then turn to an aggressive hop profile with hints of orange, lime and a touch of apricot.

Oh yeah, this is a solid Double IPA that is more balanced than your typical beer of this style. It's a hoppy IPA for sure, but keeps everything in check.

Great head tht slowly dissapates. Nice malty flavor with a great amount of hop bitterness. Aslight citrusy-piney aftertaste which just adds to the great taste of this beer. You can get a bit of alcohol taste but not enough to ruin the flavor. This hopped up beer is surprisingly balanced and the malt, hop and citrus flavors balance perfectly. Got get yourself one !!
