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.

Bottle, shared with Gripp and Parksy.very dark brown, beige head. A nicely balanced BIPA, with good expression of both the roast and the hops, subtle chocolate notes. Couldn’t find any rye character in here but I didn’t care. Nice body, nice balance.

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.

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.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
May 11, 2012 - bomber shared with me and blankboy courtesy of B. Mostly opaque ruby-black with a smallish frothy/rocky tan to light brown head. Aroma is resin, light coffee, mostly grain, some alcohol - nice (7+). Taste is really smooth, a tad metallic for a couple of seconds, but that fades out, what is left is mostly deep roast and herbal/resin bitterness. Slick mouthfeel, average body and carbonation and it finishes medium-long, medium-bitter - can’t get over how smooth it is - nice one!

"No idea of the age, but new to me :) Bomber. Poured inky black and pretty thick head. Great feel, smooth. Almost stoutlike at first, like a bitter imperial stout, but became very well balanced as it warmed and opened up. Pine, spicy rye, and citrus, chocolate, roast, and a bittersweet aftertaste. Leaning towrds the darker malt over the hops, but just ever so slightly. Nice brew."

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.
