COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boulevard Single-Wide I.P.A. is our take on a style that originated in 18th century Great Britain. This American version—inspired by our Smokestack Series Double-Wide I.P.A.—boasts a heady combination of six varieties of hops, some of which were employed for dry-hopping.

Bottle. Now, this is more like it! After trying a few average pale ales tonight (Mendocino Blue Heron, I’m looking at you), this one comes around and is quite the surprise. Plenty of hoppiness to go around with an earthy, wheat taste throughout. A nice citrus, bitter aftertaste as you’d expect. A very, very good example of an IPA done well! 5.7% alcohol.

spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 6, 2010
12 oz. bottle from HyVee Marion, $1.00 Ar: Very nice citrus hop nose, particularly grapefruit. A touch of pine, but this is mostly dominated by the citrus. Ap: Pours a slightly hazy light copper/blond with a 1" pillowy head that lasts a little while. Nice hop bitterness coats my mouth on the finish. Not a ton of lace on this one. T: Very light sweetness on the nose, but largely hop dominated. It’s a bit more piney on the way down, but still largely citrus dominated. P: Light to medium body. Lively carbonation asserts itself pretty well. O: So far, by far the best beer I’ve had from my Boulevard sampler. Very good IPA.

BelgianBeerGal (3432) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Draught at The Brick. Seemed super fresh and the perfect temperature...kudos to the staff. Pretty classic IPA all around. Obviously hoppy, but more like pink grapefruit than pine characteristics. Very easy drinking and nice that it was not over-the-top.

Great IPA. Smooth with a bitter hoppyness. Pours a nice golden yellow with a bit of darkness to it. has a medium white head that lingers and grabs the glass.

waltersrj (280) - Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours amber red with hints of brown and a one fingered prickly white head. The nose was pale malt, caramel malt, earthy, dank hops, with mild citrus (grapefruit). The taste was initially dank, murky, earthy hops that transition into a dry, citrus (grapefruit) hop taste, and finishes with a moderate caramel malt. The palate is between oily and watery. No noticeable legs and mildly sticky lacing. Decent ipa.

portableparty (2098) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2010
Bottle to snifter. Pour is bright amber with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit and malt. Taste is a good balance of grapefruit hops and malt with some pepper in the end. Palate is clean and crisp with a sticky dry finish. I like this one pretty tasty!

weitz15 (406) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Yellow pour, thin white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Flavor of hops, citrus, and light malts. Typical IPA, but the dry palate isn’t present here (which is a good thing).

Not the greatest IPA ever but holds pretty true to the style. Starts a little bland but has a bitter finish like you would expect from an IPA.

MissouriBrent (122) - Missouri, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Beautiful hop aroma. I could just sit and smell this beer for ages. Light amber color that ours with a lot of fine yeast in suspension. Head dissipates quickly. Lots of hop flavor and a good amount of bitterness. The hop balance is more flavor than bitterness. The malt flavor is there, but you have to look past all of the hops. Nice lingering hop and malt aftertaste. Very enjoyable IPA.
