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.

12 ounce bottle into tulip, best by 02/24/2012. Pours hazy and cloudy reddish orange color with a huge 3-4 fingers of dense khaki head with incredible retention that reduces to a lacing cap. Some nice lacing clings to the glass as well. Aromas of big orange, pine, spiciness, caramel, grapefruit, and some light tropical fruits. Some nice and fairly standard aromas. Taste of big pine, orange, grapefruit, spiciness, bread, and light tropical fruitiness. Nice amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pine resin, citrus, caramel, and spiciness for a good bit. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy mouthfeel that is pretty nice. No alcohol noticed other than a slight warming on the finish. Some nice balance of flavor and bitterness. Overall a very nice and enjoyable DIPA from boulevard.

Pours a two-finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Piney hop nose and flavor is piney hops nearly balanced with caramel, piney aftertaste. Higher ABV is hidden. $3.49 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma. Best by 3/31/12.

Bottle dated best before 05/02/12...part of a mixed 4 pack.

A- Heavy pour into a pint glass delivers a beautiful hazy orange amber topped with a two finger, creamy, off white head which disappates slowly. Medium light lacing throughout.

S- Pine. hops, citrus.

T- Delicious. Slightly sweet malt. Grapefruit. Pine and hops. Only a hint of bitterness at the end. Very well balanced.

M- Medium carbonation and body. Slightly oily.
Only a hint of dry and bitter at end.

O- One of the best IPAs that I have tasted this year. Definitely looking for more. For some reason was expecting a much more bitter beer. Very impressed!

amber and very clean. Some light carbonation could be seen streaming up from the bottom of the glass throughout the session leading to a nice two inch head of white foam that capped it off quite nicely. Faded down and left a nearly bare top but nice lacing on the sides and bottom of the glass. Aroma was pungent. Deep grapefruit hops and a ton of rich citrus notes rip through the air. Very fresh, ripe. Warming brings out some almost pineapple like notes and a nice alcohol warmness. Sharp, biting flavor. Crisp, clean and fresh. Raw hops shred the palate and bring tons of grapefruit and alcohol right up front. Damn this is strong, two pints in and I am feeling it for sure
