COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Very dark brown with a garnet color under a strong light and a long lasting tan head. Roasted malt and cocoa aromas with an earthy quality. Very spicy and dry on the palate which is a great expression of the rye. The dryness is cut by a smooth bittersweet chocolate and cocoa flavors and some grassy/herbal notes. Slightly creamy and not heavy at all with a sweeter milk chocolate flavor towards the end. Leaves a dry, coffee like flavor behind. This is a really nice black IPA with the added bonus of rye in the mix.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2011 Growler to go from KS Sorrento Mesa: Pure black pour with a medium tan head. Aroma is burnt toast with a hint of chocolate. Flavor starts with a sharp walnut like bitterness followed by grapefruit bitter hops and a hint of bakers chocolate with a long dry bitter roasty finish. Medium body has moderate carbonation.

Thanks to a generous soul for sending this bottle my way. Served in a tulip. Pours near black with a good off-white head that sticks around for a bit. Very thin cap and a good-sized collar hang around throughout. Lots of spotty lacing. The nose brings some earthy and piney hops along with a good dosing of roast and some slight chocolate character. The flavor doesn’t have quite as much hop character, but there’s a nice bitterness to round everything out. There’s a touch of rye, though I’m not sure I could have picked it out had I not known it was there. Medium body with good carbonation. Roasty bitterness through the finish. Solid brew. Serving type: bottle

Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours pretty damn black with a 5 finger creamy tan head. It is beautiful. Aromas of chocolate and maybe resin hop. Whoa! The first hit is resin, quickly followed by chocolate, and a harsh malt that has got to be rye. Meanwhile the head has laced all to heck. On into the finish it has some of that harsh NW IPA aspect, and a lot of roasty toasty near-burnt malt. My mouth just wraps around this baby. Brilliant beyond expectation.

bottle-pours almost black with a soapy kacki head that lasted a long time cold but not very long warm. seems somewhat backwards. nose is of piney hops, char, smoke, lite chocolate with some herbal character. flavors are very chary with alot of pine and herbal hop notes. very well balanced but leaves a bigtime char finish. could be the least metallic Black IPA i have had to date. the malt has enough sweetness to overide the metalllic flavors. some alcohol detected long into the finish. somewhat warming. a very tasty example of this style!

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2011 Taster at Bev4less. Black pour with a medium tan head that had good retention. The aroma is sharp with chocolates and some burnt toast. The flavor is more of the same, lost of roasted malts, biter walnuts, spicy breads and burnt toast. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and biter. Overall: Very tasty.

On tap at Beach to Brewery 2011

Appearance: Pours a rootbeer brown with a thin film of head.

Aroma: Orange like hop. No roast to be found in the nose.

Taste: Grapefruit, tangerine, bitterness with minute roast.

Mouthfeel: Juicy, medium bodied, moderate carbonation.

Overall: This is what I look for in a Black IPA. Big citrus, little roast. Well done.
