Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: SafeAtFirst on 11-17-2007

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 love this beer. Poured into tulip glass. 2 finger head with nice lacing.

Cloudy dark amber color. Hoppy yumminess. Hints of citrus including grapefruit but not overwhelming.

I seem to love Boulevard beers, and this was no exception.

Bottle poured into a Boulevard Brewing tulip

A: Pours hazy deep reddish orange amber with a frothy light tan head that hangs around and laces well.

S: Sweet caramel malt, a little dankness, some fruitiness, and citrus and pine hops.

T: Big hop hit up front, citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, some fruitiness, maybe even a bit tropical, apricot, pineapple, light mango, a little pine, backed with big caramel toffee malt sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, very smooth.

O: Not a super fresh bottle but well with in it's best by date, and I gotta say, it's aged quite well. I've had it before where it starts with a big grapefruit punch in the face, but the time seems to have mellowed it quite nicely making the other flavors come out. Love this one!

Smooth high ABV IPA with good use of flavoring hops which is what I like in my IPAs.

Webby egg-tan stiff head over cherry amber body. 4
Children’s Bayer nose with grass, resin, and maraschino. 4
Yellow Danish with stone fruit filling then orange rind and a twinkle of citrus juice. 3.75
Pine sap finish and powdery bitter linger.
Medium, creamy, slight cling. 4

-- Firm hoppiness with flashes of brightness, but I wonder if it’s lost a step: how quickly do Missouri IPAs move off the shelf of a Paramus wine shop? Smooth and balanced overall, but by reputation I was hoping for more from this one. 4

Yum. Excellent finish that isn't too bitter. Mugs up!

I love the smack-you-in-the-tongue bitterness typical in an IPA.

A: Amber, bottle conditioned chunky. I prefer my commercial beers filtered, or the sediment to pack tightly.

S: I am excited. This has outstanding aroma. Big citrus aroma. Can't wait to dive in.

T: I'm waiting for it.... still waiting. It's underwhelming. My tongue isn't turning over. Mild flavor. Crap.

M: Carbonation is excellent. Head keeps buildling as it sits. Wanting that lingering bitterness though.

O: Just wasted $10 on a 4 pack. Wouldn't recommend unless you like your IPAs bite-less.
