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.

Poured this beer into one of the boulevard glasses and was very impressed.

its appearance was a cloudy gold with a one finger head.

it smells nice when originally opened but settles down in a matter of moments. great floral hops to it with not to much malt which i find appealing in an IPA..

overall another great beer from the boulevard brewing company, up next for me is their wheat wine.

From notes...

A - Pours a slightly hazy, murky copper colour, finger of head with solid retention and sporadic lacing.

S - Slightly mild, musty hops, earthy caramel. I'm inclined to think this might be stronger if it were fresher.

T - The musty caramel dominates, the citrus and cedar hops come through nicely, but again mild. A touch of brown sugar and maple lingers alongside some bitter leafy notes.

M - Surprisingly smooth and finishes wet, this is easily drinkable.

O - A tasty DIPA, though I think a bit past its prime with the hops a little more mild than I was anticipating. Would like to try this stuff on tap as I suspect it would pack a nice punch.

A - Pours a cloudy copper with a two finger head. Dissipates to a nice lacing that sticks to the sides.

S - Citrus and pine from the hops mingles with a bold malt aroma.

T - Starts off with lemon and lightly sweet malt flavors, turning into the piney bitterness you would expect. Some mild berry flavors in the background. Bitterness lingers for a good while.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Perfect for the style, nice and crisp.

O - A nice IPA, good flavors and aromas that mingle right. Could see this being great to enjoy on a nice hot summer day. Would definitely buy a six pack to have at a barbecue with friends.
