BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

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.

From the Smokestack 4-pack. Poured into the Boulevard tulip.

A- Pours a clear copperish amber body with a nice 2.5-finger off-white head that falls fairly quickly to a 1/2 finger cap. Not too much lacing.

S- Some floral hoppiness right off the bat, lemongrass, some sweetness, and a little bit of a funk to it.

T- Citrusy lemon-like flavor up front with good bitterness, slight maltiness, and a good piney flavor. Good flavors, but I don't think they're melding as well as they could be.

MF- Moderate body with a good amount of carbonation that you feel with each sip.

Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with a two finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lacing left behind.

Floral hop aroma with a nice balance of sweet citrus and earthy pine notes along with a pale malt presence. Hints of dry pine needle along with some orange peel, caramel and biscuit.

Medium bodied but on the fuller end with. Complex hop profile an subtle malt backbone. Some dry bitterness up front with oily pine which is countered by citrus rind sweetness. There's a slight creamy presence mid-palatable that's adds to the palate along with a subtle malt character, providing decent balance. Hints of caramel sweetness, toffee and biscuit. Slight alcohol heat lingering into a bone dry finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Deep, dark amber. Mildly cloudy. Large off-white head with bubbly lacing.

S: Big hop aroma, pine, citrus, grapefruit. Smooth caramel and floral notes.

T/M: Fresh hops, pine and earthy tones balanced with tangy fruit flavors and mild caramel sweetness. Flavors follow quite well, all the way through to the aftertaste, which is more strictly a piney flavor. Bitter, tart, full in flavor. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation.

D: Damn good. A great double-IPA.
