The Calling

Postby The Chaplain » Sun Apr 05, 2015 10:26 am

Did anyone else receive "The Calling" during this Easter Weekend?
It echoes from the Boulevard, drawing one in
and it's hoppy goodness is here and gone like Smokestack Lightning!
Happy Easter,
The Chaplain

May the good Lord Bless
What is on my mind,
Comes off of my tongue...
and remains in my heart.

Have tried The Calling and have decided I'm bummed that Double Wide went away.

That does not mean it isn't good, just that I don't like it. Everyone has different tastes right? That's what makes the world fun. In that vein, I was just turned on to Elevation triple IPA. It's outstandingly good but with 11% will knock your socks off. Like one of my other faves, G'Knight. Lovely but packs a right hook that would make Ali jealous. In other words, be careful out there kids if you're tasting either of these.

Does anyone know why BLVD kilt the famous and deliciously awesome Double Wide?

With only so much space, I am sure the brew chieftans moved on to other recipes. Just like if all you cook is the same five or six dishes for dinner, you quickly get a bored chef. Good restaurants are always updating their menu. Good brewers do the same thing. If it was that good, I am sure it'll come around again.

In the mean time, save up, and buy a garage refridgerator. Then when it does come around, buy as much as will fit in your new garage 'fridge. Put pint glasses in the freezer side. Beer like that will age/mature in the bottle very, very well at about 37F. After a few months, or even a year or more, it should improve.

Don't belive the hype about "born on dating". That is a marketing gimmick. Many good beers need to be aged properly (dark and cold) to reach their full potential. Some for months, some for a year or two.

.
There are so many things wrong with the above statement it makes my head spin..

Brewers and Breweries make and sell what they like and most importantly what sells. Double Wide just didn't sell in a market that is thoroughly saturated with really good and better IPAs. Boulevard's Unfiltered Wheat Beer and Pale Ale beers, together comprise more than 60 percent of Boulevard's sales

Hops, the main flavoring in an IPA begin to lose their flavoring compounds as soon as you turn off the heat to the boil. IPA's are meant to be drank as fresh as possible to get all those nice hoppy flavors and aromas. They generally do not age well and maintain the flavors an IPA is brewed for.

Frozen glasses??? What are you a heathen? Unless you want to numb your taste buds.

Most recommendations for proper cellar aging of beer suggest dark and temps around 55 degrees +/-.

I have beers that are 5 and 6 years old and I know of others who age into the double digits, depending upon the style and alcohol content.

Well That's Fantastic!!

Similar to my Vinturi aerator, I drink my beer through a pin-holed straw to let the air mingle and release aromas and soften bitterness. From a chilled, stemmed glass of course. And no beer sits in my fridge longer than 12 days. I like them pert and vivacious -- not stale, tired and hoary.

I know right.. Muther knows best :roll:

I always tell people around here that I like to be proven wrong. Only tried IPA a few times and didn't like them. I like most pale ales. How about a recommendation on an IPA that will satisfy my less than sophisticated tastes???
