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.

StefanSD (2218) - 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.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 25, 2011
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.

Sampled in a bomber. Pours deep brown with a thin head on it. The Rye is subtle but smooth and compliments the hops. Malts are smooth as well.

Fatehunter (1693) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Poured a finger of tan head on a black body. The aroma is a rich roasted malt, coffee and molasses. Wonderful. The taste is rich as well. Roasted malt, rye spice, coffee just a little bit burnt. The texture is crisp with low to moderate carbonation. Quite delicious.

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

mikedR (1562) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Great mouthfeel and bitter rye flavor, and love the spice, but it needs a lil more hoppy finish. Opens up after resting -- nice chocolate coffee notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ghawener (1527) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JUL 12, 2012
Draft: It’s good but undefined, I’d rather drink a brown ale or an IPA, but not both. Time to work on a differente style, IPA & DIPA are being destroyed. Food Pairing: Fish and Chips + Cheese platter.

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.

skmikeg (1359) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Pours a dark black with a tan head with spotty lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, pine resin, some coffee, and some rye spicyness. Flavor is roasted malts, coffee, pine, citrus hops, bittersweet chocolate, and peppery rye notes. has a medium full body with a creamy, somewhat oily moutfheel, and dry bitter, somewhat sour finnish from the rye. overall, a very nice beer that shows off the continuing improvement of Karl Strauss.
