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.

Bomber pours deep darkness with full tan head and some sheet lacing. The aroma is big and yummy with dark roasted malts, earthy and spicy hops, some dark roasted coffee, malt balls and some rye twanginess. Great aroma. The taste feels thin but some how also on the creamy side. I get dark roasted malts fused with almost, but not quite, chewy rye spicy twanginess. Midway and into the finish a touch of toffee and burnt malts come to the surface to play with a bit of resiny pine hops.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a near black with a large and thick brown head that has pretty decent staying power and good retention. Aromas of fruit. Strong citrus, orange and grapefruit with a considerable amount of esters. Light roast, coffee, some spice and a bit of a metal character as well. Tobacco, chocolate, light dark fruit. Flavors are quite roasty, toasty and spicy. Roast dominates and finishes a bit nutty, dry and acrid. Thin, dry. Spicy. Moderate hop flavors of pine and citrus (somewhat unpleasant, but I don’t particularly care for Ahtanum hops, which I think this uses). Roast, lightly astringent, lasting bitterness. Thin, warming, medium bubbles. The roast and even somewhat astringent malt character dominates the hop character (that said, I am picky on which Black IPAs I like).

22. Pours a murky near-black with a nice creamy tan head. Big spicy rye nose, showing that husky pepperiness along with some grapefruit and pine. Creamy full body with lively carb. Roast, toast, pepper, grapefruit, pine, and grain husks on the mid palate along with a nice resiny finish.

blankboy (7226) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus c/o Brock. Pours dark brown with light red hues, a bit oily looking, and a small diminishing frothy tan head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt, leafy hops, chocolate, some coffee and a hint of spice. Flavour of roasted malt, light spice, coffee, leafy hops and chocolate. Alcohol well hidden. Medium bodied, almost-creamy mouthfeel. Quite good, I enjoyed it.

AmEricanbrew (6731) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Dark brown color with lingering tan foam. Floral, pine, citrus, dark chocolate aromas. Medium bodied with average co2. Floral, pine, citrus, spicy bitter flavors with semi-sweet chocolate, pale honey to balance, with parched black malts in a drying finish--very good.

Strykzone (6720) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Bomber from Hayduke. We shared it via facebook chat. This was very dark and had a tan head that settled with big bubbles bursting. The aroma was chocolate, anise, roasted notes, and swamp. The flavor began with chocolate and licorice but there was so much going on and so many layers to the flavor. Quite late I was finally able to taste hops and they were citrus and grassy. This beer kept changing personalities and was a blast to taste. I knew there were hops in there but had to peel back layers of other interesting flavors before they were exposed. As well as interesting this beer was also quite tasty. What fun to try. Fortunately I had a bomber and not just a few ounces because the complexity required some time to explore.
