When the sun goes down past Crystal Pier, the postcard view of the Pacific fades into the dark. As the tourists head off down the Boardwalk, a distinctly local vibe returns to PB. Boardwalk Black Rye IPA is a spicy black ale with a hop profile that’s pure West Coast. Black and caramelized rye malts add complex spicy and roasted notes, while three massive additions of Ahtanum hops provide the vibrant floral aroma and citrus hop character of a Double IPA. Keep Boardwalk out of the cellar, this hoppy offering is best enjoyed fresh.

shoulderbroken (3755) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 28, 2013
Bottle at Antenna America. Black coloured with golden head. Aroma is caramel, roasty, slight fruitiness, beefy. Taste is bit savoury, fruity too, chewy, quite strange but nice, fruity cherry and strawberry. Nice and roasty too. Pretty nice.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 14, 2013
Black in color with a tan head. A bit of rye on the nose, nice roast, pine, and some citrus hops. Grapefruit, orange peel, coffee, and maybe some chocolate. There’s a moderate citrus quality, some pine, floral hops, and lots of roast. Coffee, chocolate, and mild caramel sweetness. Decent bitterness on the finish.

peteinSD (1461) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 12, 2013
Tap @ Carlsbad brewpub. Black pour with a quickly thinning tan head. Aroma is rye and roast with chocolate perhaps light coffee and minimal hop bitterness. Taste is heavy on the roast with chocolate and rye with background bitterness. Nice roasty beer but more of a hops presence would be nice.

ddemmingjr (797) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Pours black with 2 finger frothy light brown head. Nose- chocolate and roasted malts, coffee, rye and resin. Medium to heavier bodied with flavors of earth and roast, chocolate malts, biscuits, some herbal and resin hops subtly making an appearance. Spicy nuanced finish. Pretty good though not elite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample pour from a bomber. Assertive rye and hops, deep black color. All around solid choice.

jonno (2489) - JAPAN - FEB 19, 2013
KS got the chops - this is pretty darn good. Good chocolate malt body, a hint of rye with some pretty big PNW hops. All tied together pretty well. Not overtly flash, but lean, mean and hop green.

gvmdw7 (188) - California, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Poured black with little head. Smelled mostly of coffee, but had some bourbon notes. Tasted of coffee, chocalate, and had a nice spicy finish. Serve a little warmer than normal.

thetmaxx (901) - West Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Poured from the bomber. Aroma is mild. The malt character is not overpowering. The rye is present, but the hops are mild, perhaps almost pale ale ish. Finishes thick and oily. Very good black ipa with the rye twist.
