COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double-Wide I.P.A. uses Columbus and Magnum hops for both bittering and aroma with Chinook hops added in the whirlpool. It is dry hopped with generous amounts of Cascade, Centennial, and Chinook hops. The resulting beer has a hop forward aroma, redolent of peach and apricot. The assertive flavor bursts with the citrus qualities of blood orange and lemon with a slight caramel malt backbone to balance the intense hop flavor. There is little restraint in the flavor of this beer; it is certainly not for the pedestrian palate.

Fresh aroma of pine and grapefruit. Little malty. Flavor is pleasantly light but round, enough caramel malts to balance the piny, even soapy hops.

There’s something slightly different about this double IPA. Boulevard’s smokestack series have brought a number of inspirational tasty beers, with that German/ Belgian edge. This brew is finomonal. Cheers!

Changed (340) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Draft at Brewer’s Art. Orange amber pour, tons of white head. Lacing is fantastic. Aroma is sweet DIPA hopiness, stonefruit. Flavor is the same, but not in a bad way. Complex, drinkable, resinous aftertaste. Another really good beer from these guys.

hockeybeerguy (893) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Pours a super golden amber and leaves more of a slightly bronze looking colored body with a one and a half finger white foamy head that rises to a sort of rocky looking lumpiness that wants to overflow but nicely maintains a classic awesome sustained head that just hovers over top of the glass (wow, what a nice show); the aroma has an initial smell (actually smokey, but quickly goes away, unsure where that came from and unaware if that was intentional), anyways, it leads into a the "typical" DIPA smells of citrus and pine coming through in a nice sweet sort of way followed by a slight bitterness; the taste is mainly sweet (there’s an element that wants to be slightly bitter, but it really comes across mainly sweet through the citrus/pine aspects). A very citrus-like aftertaste, dry malty finish and comes across pretty combined - I like it; on the palate this one sits about a medium on the body with a semi-sessionable aspect to it (as far as any DIPA really can be), carbonation comes across like a good DIPA (there’s the harsh bittering pounding on the mouth and tongue but still not overdoing it just to let the malty aspects show their face); overall - I say this is a good DIPA that I would have again, good job Boulevard, I’m certainly glad to have finally tried this and would certainly be glad to have it again.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Hazy amber/toffee colored pour. Big off-white head. Tons of lacing. Big malty nose up front with some muted notes of hop. Malty taste. A little carbonic, but not overwhelming. Sweet finish. A little corked as this sample was a few years old. Aged well, like a nice barleywine.

MartzMimic (50) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Pours from the bottle a hazy amber with a big foamy head. Medium lacing. Piney hops and citrus predominate the smell. Those follow through to taste with lingering bitterness. Very floral. Medium mouth with a fair bit of oil. This is a very nice DIPA.
