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.

This is the best American IPA I’ve ever had. It pours with a foamy white head with a rich amber-colored body. Citric aroma and very hoppy, good flavor. The effect it has on the palate is what separates this IPA from others. Good, rich beer!

Great balance. One of the best aromas of any IPA. Good bitter finish. Great pour and with perfect medium head.

This is a good, high alcohol IPA. I like the boozy nature. I like the citrus. The other stone fruits were subtle, but still there. The finish was warm but largely clean. Good, big, IPA.

Aggressive but balanced. Thatís the best way to describe Boulevardís brew. That sticky, rocky, off-white head made my mouth water. So did the resinous, deep orange body. Thereís lots of citrus flavor in this brew, but itís less like aggressive grapefruit and more like juice from orange and lemon. I think I could drink this till kingdom come.

This is probably my favorite beer. It has an amber orange color pour and you can smell the hops as soon as you open the bottle. It has a nice thick white head. The flavor is citrus and grass and you feel it move through your nose as your drink it. A wonderful IPA.

This is a great IPA. I think this should be categorized as an Imperial IPA. Itís as good as Bellís Hopslam, which is my favorite beer. Big, white, fluffy head. Orangeish. Awesome. Only 55 IBU? The dry-hopping is deceiving here.

This is a very complex beer, there is a lot going on. Taste stays with you for a little bit and keeps getting better even after the beer is down the hatch. Strongly recommend the beer, as well as following the glass recommendations, makes a huge difference.

SPDickerman (881) - Texas, USA - APR 3, 2012
Pours sunset orange with a small off-white head. Smells of citrus and grapefruit. Tastes is bitter, grapefruit, citruses, and a touch of flowers. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and decent mouth-carbonation, Boulevard Smokestack Series - Double Wide IPA finishes with a grapefruit kick.

Probably the best IPA Iíve ever had, second to Dogfish 90/120 Minute. Beautifully creamy head and mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. Grapefruit, vanilla, licorice, bread, chocolate, clove etc. etc. Dark, dark flavors, this is not for the faint of heart. Hop lovers rejoice. If you love IPAís, then you need some of this. Good job Boulevard.

Crisp nose and a quick drop off upon first taste. Consistent foamy head and a surprisingly easy drink. One of the best double IPAs Iíve had.
