750 ml bottle. Lots of hop citrus aromas. Flavors moved more to grass and pine. Very hoppy and very tasty. Homer321 (5202) - Melboring, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2008

Batch Number D8121
10/30/2008: Boulevard Double-Wide India Pale Ale is dark amber and nearly opaque with fine sediment. There is a large, rocky beige that leaves dense, detailed lacing. The aroma has aged citrus, is malty, and alcohol is sneaking out. Toffee maltiness, "sour citrus tone", bitter orange, and red grapefruit can all be found in the flavor. This beer has a medium-full body, is smooth, and has a thick texture. Overall this is a pretty good and flavorful IPA, but WHERE IS THE BITTERNESS?!
750 ml corked and caged bottle (8.5% Alc/Vol; "Relax, It’s Twister Proof") shared by alexsdad at the weekly Party Source gathering. Thanks Brad! Rating #230 for this beer...
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy golden color with a huge frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus hoppy and light malt aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bitter finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

Crushed with Jakebra. Hoping I got a bad bottle. Good nose. Looks beautiful Dish soap in the flavor. Bummer. Had lots of potential, but soap doesn’t agree with my taste buds, aight?

Well worth the pick-up seeing as I’m not in a distribution area. Great up-front maltiness, but then comes the great hop finish. Excellent. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2008

Thanks to pepsican for the bottle. Pours a deep amber/brown color with a large head. Aroma is fruit, pine, styrofoam with an overall sweetness. Flavor is good with a slight bitter finish but not overdone. Has hints of pine with a refreshing flavor that has a definite citrus undertone. danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Bottle, batch D8121. Pours almost red with some red orange edges. A bit cloudy with a frothy white head. Nice sweet floral aromas. Taste has a nice sweetness to it. Some good citrus (a late lemon bite), some pine too, vague hints of caramel, Definitely astringent and a good little bitter finish. Tasty! bhensonb (15849) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Bottle (c&c) from South Bay Drug. Batch 08121.Coppery amber color with a three-finger beige head. Moderate lacing. Very fruity aroma - not much malt. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is not extremely bitter. Fruity hops with enough caramel to arguably balance. Sort of oscillates between fruit and resin. Very smooth. A slight astringency. Almost crisp. The brewer apparently thinks oxidation won’t be a problem: 'Keep some in the cellar ...' Since it’s B.C., wish I’d bought more so I could do that. Smoother than Fullers 1845, but it brought that one to mind. Brilliant. Seems more piney after awhile.
