BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States
boulevard.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Is a dark orange with off white foam. which dies down to a little patch that sits nicely the whole glass. The beer is well carbonated and feels substantial. Not a watered down beer by any means. The intense hop finish is there but not enough that that is all you get. Fruity, citrusy, and tangy. Enjoyed out of a Boulevard glass that came with a four pack. Quite impressive young skywalker....

A- pours a deep burnt orange with two and a half of off white head. Amazing head retention with some sticky lacing.

S- very balanced in the nose with hop aromas of bitter orange peel, tangerine and floral notes. Slight caramel and dry bready malt aromas blend in as well.

T- malty sweetness up front with notes of caramel and toasty bread. Balancing hops with flavors of orange peel, tangerine and dusty mineral tones. Finishes with herbal hop flavor and a lingering hop bitterness. Very balanced indeed.

MF- doughy slick mouthfeel with a medium body. Pretty active carbonation as well.

D- good drinkability

Overall a very balanced DIPA. A bit to malty and more akin to the English versions I've had.

S: Dried orange peel, grapefruit peel, lemon, some bready malt in the background.

L: Cloudy dark red, off-white creamy head that dissipates to a dusting, solid lacing.

T: Bitter malt with lots of mango and orange peel. Medium high citrus bitterness leading to some semi-sweet toasty notes. Finishes fairly dry with both toasty and hoppy notes.

M: Medium full body, medium carbonation. Fairly crisp.

Despite the color, on the dry side with a unique toasty malt backbone. Very drinkable, not overwhelming. Nicely balanced for the style.
