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.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 6, 2012
22oz bottle. Dark brownish red with a small light tan head. Aroma is lots of citrus, pine and floral hops with coffee, spicy rye and chocolate. Flavor is bitter hops, roasted coffee, cocoa, and light alcohol. Medium body with a thick mouth feel. This is a nice big, hoppy, black IPA. There is a lot going on but seems to work good together.

jonno (2345) - 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.

StefanSD (2156) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUL 1, 2011
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.
