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.

I'm not to experienced making this descriptive reviews but this is very good and this is one of Boulevard's best Smokestack brews. I think MbpBugeye's review was a perfect description:

"The beer has a massive head. Its hard to tame, you have to take your time pouring. It sticks around for a long time leaving thick chucks stuck to the glass. This beer is pretty dark for an IPA. Its a deep burnt orange. Its very hazy. Everything just looks "retro" like its in a sepia tone or something.

S- As soon as the beer left the bottle I was hit with waves of hops. The aromas that take flight across the room are very sweet and citrusy. It really beckoned me to get a closer sniff. Trying to get a whiff through this dense head is a bit tough but Im still picking up lots of pine cones and toasty malts. There must be lots of Summit here. Its giving off lots of that oniony, garlicy smell.

T- Really nice. Starts off loaded with pine resin then, as the beer moves through the mouth, lots of grapefruit pith comes out just before substantial toasted malts take up the rear. The finish is bitter, loaded with spicy hops and a touch of alcohol.

M- Super dry, pretty highly carbonated and medium bodied. It finishes pretty clean."
