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.

750mL bottle. Slightly murky orange-brown with a large rocky off white head. Citric mettalic hop aroma with tinges of breadiness. Doughy, caramel flavors with an acrid floral hop character. Chalky and citric hop flavors persist. Medicinal bitterness in the finish, with pine and some breadiness. Mouthfeel is a heavy medium, dry.

Bottle courtesy of mreusch. Pours a murky brown with a huge thick light tan head. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops with caramel malt. Flavor of lemon, iced tea, alcohol. Meh, the iced tea is too overpowering in this beer. Not impressed by this one. Too sweet!

purchased this 750 in iowa city at john’s grocery. all i remember about having it was that it was pretty hoppy, the hops were fresh, and i liked it a lot. since i’m in pursuit of 1000 and ratebeer has been down so much lately, shitty ratings will have to suffice here and there.

Bottle. Aroma of grassy, citrusy (vaguely grapefruity) hops, plenty of sweet malt. Flavor has more malt, richer than was expected from the nose, with a great deal of hop bitterness that feels seems more flowery than grassy, still with that vaguely grapefruit feel. Wonderful balance of rich malt with lively hops, a malt base worthy of a big ASA yet without weighing on the palate at all as ASA’s can be apt to do. Superb.

750ml corked bottle poured into a small lager glass. BDW IPA pours murky and the color of tarnished brass. The head is huge and creamy looking. The acidic bite of hops dominates the aroma. This beer is very crisp and clean. The hops are strong but not over-domineering. There is a slight floral taste that adds character to this beer. The finish is quick, dry and leaves you wanting more. This is an excellent beer.

Boulevard packs a wallop into this corked 750ml IPA. Apricot-orange on the nose, very light in color, and ultimately floral and perfumey. The aggressive hopping is paired with an excellent choice in hops: they are fragrant and stingingly bitter. Mostly citrus and perfume. Well-balanced and surprisingly drinkable.

750 ml bottle. Lots of hop citrus aromas. Flavors moved more to grass and pine. Very hoppy and very tasty.

<b><i>Batch Number D8121</i></b>

<b>10/30/2008</b>: Boulevard Double-Wide India Pale Ale is dark amber and nearly opaque with fine sediment. There is a large, rocky beige that leaves dense, detailed lacing. The aroma has aged citrus, is malty, and alcohol is sneaking out. Toffee maltiness, "sour citrus tone", bitter orange, and red grapefruit can all be found in the flavor. This beer has a medium-full body, is smooth, and has a thick texture. Overall this is a pretty good and flavorful IPA, but WHERE IS THE BITTERNESS?!

<i>750 ml corked and caged bottle (8.5% Alc/Vol; "Relax, It’s Twister Proof") shared by alexsdad at the weekly Party Source gathering. Thanks Brad! Rating #230 for this beer...</i>
