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.

malvrich (78) - durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2015
From Smokestack Mixed 4 pack Into Blvd’s included tulip glass. A: Pours 2 fingers if tan foam. Murky rust color. not transparent at all. Some remnants of head are evident throughout the drink. S: Pine in a pronounced but easy way. A touch of caramel. Hardly any citrus to me. A tad winey but otherwise, no booze. T: Piney again and sticky. Malts are subtle but do provide some balance. Some fruit (cherry?) in the end. Alcohol starts to show through. M: Medium heavy with sticky finish and a good amount of carbonation. Foam sticks to the lips. O: Not my favorite style, admittedly but I can see the attraction. Very well done DIPA.

Licorice, citrus and peach with some nice caramel smells to back it up. Nicely balanced sweetness from the malt. Peach follows the nose, herbal with a nice oily resin left on your lips. Glad your trailers a double wide, cause I'm moving in! Sad to see this retired for a bit ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a bright, orange color with a thick, white head. Strong, hoppy aroma with a good sense of tart and grapefruit. Thick, hoppy taste with a strong sense of citrus. Chewy. A very, very good double IPA.

nihtila (1392) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
16.1.2014. Hieman samea, punertava väri. IPAksi hieman tunkkainen tuoksu, raikkaan humalan lisäksi löytyy jotain karamellimaista mallasta. Takaa löytyy myös hieman jenkkihumalan tuoksua. Suutuntuma on hyvin täyteläinen ja tukeva. Maussa tuntuu sitruksisen raikkaita humalia kuten cascada, lisäksi jotain kypsää hedelmää, myös hieman paahteisuutta. Jälkimaku on pitkähkö ja korkeahkoista EBUista huolimatta ei pelkästään humalan purema, vaan myös kypsän hedelmäinen. Ei IPAna pelkkä humalapommi vaan sisältää myös paljon muuta. Mausta tulee ainakin pihkaisuutta ja mäntyä, ei niinkään greippiä.

whitehotg8 (78) - Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Poured into an ipa glass. Deep orange in color with a light khaki head. While swirling the glass about I smell pine, juicy fruits, sweet caramel malt and just a touch of baked bread. Taste is exuberant, with resin, pineapple, green grapes, sweet turbinado sugar and just a touch of hop bite. The malt backbone is really firm which balances the hop profile well. Thuroughly impressed with this one. Well done Boulevard!

Bottle. Wonderful juicy fruity aroma. Caramel taste with some pine notes, peach, booze, fairly sweet with some bitter hints only in the finish. Pretty good.

Fritz123 (1274) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle shared with Brian at the house. Snifters. Pours a deep amber with haze and solid two finger head. Aroma is pine and slight fruity hoppiness, small amount of dark breads and malts, hint of paper. The taste is very well balanced with the pine, citrus hops and the malty finish. Hint of caramel after the fruity and pine hops hit you first. Moderate mouth and carbonation. Finish is slight bitter. Well done. Would love to try the brett version.

Pours an opaque tea color with a healthy white head. Very smooth for the ABV and a great use of flavoring hops which is the way I like my IPAs. There is the typical grapefruit but also some lemon & orange fruits. The bitterness is well balanced & smooth. Great!
