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 at Antenna America. Black coloured with golden head. Aroma is caramel, roasty, slight fruitiness, beefy. Taste is bit savoury, fruity too, chewy, quite strange but nice, fruity cherry and strawberry. Nice and roasty too. Pretty nice.

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.

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.

Best Black IPA I have ever had. Toasty, really creamy, chocolate, slight bitter, slight hops. Super drinkable. Big time coffee flavor. Breakfast beer. Great price too.

peteinSD (1280) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 12, 2013
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.

papajohn (1248) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - AUG 5, 2011
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.

Fatehunter (1076) - 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.

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
