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.

<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?!

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy golden color with a huge frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus hoppy and light malt aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bitter finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

Crushed with Jakebra. Hoping I got a bad bottle. Good nose. Looks beautiful Dish soap in the flavor. Bummer. Had lots of potential, but soap doesn’t agree with my taste buds, aight?

Well worth the pick-up seeing as I’m not in a distribution area. Great up-front maltiness, but then comes the great hop finish. Excellent.

Thanks to pepsican for the bottle. Pours a deep amber/brown color with a large head. Aroma is fruit, pine, styrofoam with an overall sweetness. Flavor is good with a slight bitter finish but not overdone. Has hints of pine with a refreshing flavor that has a definite citrus undertone.

Bottle, batch D8121. Pours almost red with some red orange edges. A bit cloudy with a frothy white head. Nice sweet floral aromas. Taste has a nice sweetness to it. Some good citrus (a late lemon bite), some pine too, vague hints of caramel, Definitely astringent and a good little bitter finish. Tasty!

Bottle (c&c) from South Bay Drug. Batch 08121.Coppery amber color with a three-finger beige head. Moderate lacing. Very fruity aroma - not much malt. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is not extremely bitter. Fruity hops with enough caramel to arguably balance. Sort of oscillates between fruit and resin. Very smooth. A slight astringency. Almost crisp. The brewer apparently thinks oxidation won’t be a problem: ’’Keep some in the cellar ...’’ Since it’s B.C., wish I’d bought more so I could do that. Smoother than Fullers 1845, but it brought that one to mind. Brilliant. Seems more piney after awhile.

Pours a nice copper amber color with a medium sized off white head. Nose is caramel malt, citrus, and hops. Taste is sweet and refreshing with lots of carbonation and a nice bite on the back end. Solid.

750. Very gold. Fluffy white head with a nice fresh hop nose. Taste-very fresh, citrusy, with a nice but not overwhelming hop profile. Easy and smooth drinker and a bit overcarbonated. Nice effort and one to look out for again.
