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.

Cloudy orange body, glowing at the bottom, topped by three creamy fingers of off- white foam.

Big inviting citrus aroma, heavy on apricot.

Smooth, sweet foundation. Orchard of fruit. Quick, firm bitter bite. Fruity finish with a sweet undercurrent to tie it all together.

Big, thick smooth mouthfeel.

Well done IIPA, seek out if available.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with creamy, off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, orange marmalade, caramel and ripe fruit. Body is full, creamy and tangy. Caramel malt, citrusy hops, ripe fruit nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is long and bitter. Excellent brew.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Look- clear light orange hue with thick head that lumps as it recedes. Has some lacing.
Smell- not overwhelming like I would like. Some hop smell.
Taste- definitely mix of hops. A minty hop mellows it out. Citrus included.
Feel- some hoppy bitterness but note nought to put in elite category.
.Overall- ok. Smooth for a pn IPA is best attribute.

Boulevard Double Wide IPA - 8.5% ABV DIPA - BB March 11/2015 - Consumed October 23/2014
A: Deep orange hue with four fingers of rocky, eggshell white froth and lively carbonation in the body. Relatively clear for the style. Sheets of lacing line the IPA glass and the head retains well. A stellar looking beer.
S: Huge citrusy, piney, and minty hop aromas assault the senses upfront, resin, passion fruit, guava, and peach follow, apricot, crab apple, toffee, and biscuit notes with some alcohol as well. A truly outstanding nose.
T: Juicy, citric, resinous, and piney hop flavours, big caramel sweetness, peach, biscuit and apricot mid-palate, navel orange and honey, punchy, citric and resinous hop bitterness precedes an off-dry finish with a little heat in the throat (not harsh). A delicious and well-balanced DIPA, very drinkable for the weight.
M: Full side of medium-bodied, juicy-oily middle, massively citric and resinous hop bitterness transitions to a semi-dry finish with some warmth going down. A superbly balanced and enjoyable palate. Awesome.
O: Just a gem of a DIPA, tasty, unique and bursting with bold, hoppy goodness.
