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.

devilben02 (281) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Pours a warm, red-orange-tinted medium brown color with a massive, rocky, sand-colored head. A fresh, fruity citrus hop aroma somewhere between orange and grapefruit dominates, but a touch of malty sweetness is also apparent. The flavor is less bright, and is instead driven more by a woodsy, piney blend of hop characteristics, but there is also a good dose of light caramel malts to balance. The medium body is lightened by a fine, active carbonation that may be even a bit too assertive. Overall, though, the rich, resinous, multi-faceted bitterness lingers comfortingly, making this beer an easy one to savor.

Single bottle from HyVee, Ankeny, IA, March 2015. "Best by 06/12/15." Big grassy hop smell right under the cap. Foamy pour, slightly orange over a fine amber beer body. Unabashedly strong in alcohol, since I pick that up even before the hop load. And then there are the hops. Not as strong in any one hop character, but a combination of pine and resin, grassy fresh hop bitterness. I don’t catch all the fruits mentioned in the description, but I don’t have to. Actually has some balance for a Double IPA, and I hope I’m rating this higher than, say, a 90 Minute.

Poured from the bottle of a four pack, chunky dark orange with a big foamy white collar. Lots of hops in this double wide with some citrus, got the peach and apricot flavors mostly in the 3rd and 4th beer, but the part that impressed me most was that it has a whirlpool where hops are added. I only wonder if my palate is pedestrian, because I walk around the neighborhood quite a bit (usually drunk).

Svesse (6916) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2015
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with rocky, beige head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, fruity nose with notes of citrus, caramel, orange peel, treacle-toffee, black-currant and pink grapefruit. Malty, fruity, hoppy taste with caramel, treacle-toffee, black-currant, citrus peel, grapefruit, lychee and a generous resiny/citric bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Solid and well made DIPA. Despite it’s strength and bitterness it’s not aggressive, instead it’s very well balanced. Another great beer from Boulevard. Excellent stuff!

AnokaBrewer (90) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Purchased in 12 ounce bottles. Golden amber in color with a strong hop aroma. Not a lot of carbonation. Great head retention though. Good mix of hops and malt. Strong hop taste at first, then the powerful malt comes through, followed by a bitter finish that does not stay around a long time.

malvrich (103) - 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

Gorgeous deep amber color. Highly carbonated. Piney grapefruit bitterness. Solid IPA but not my favorite.

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 (1727) - 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.
