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.

Poured amber with a white head, nose of citrusy hops. Taste is weak grassy hops with slight malt and a little hop bitterness. A fairly weak IPA.

This is a real solid IPA. Not exactly how I like them, but well made nonetheless. It’s a real hazy brew and has more earthy flavors I guess is how I would describe it. Good brew though.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2009
A golden-brown beer with a nice foamy head. The aroma is citrusy hops, & the taste is light hoppy with a grassy taste. This is not an overly hopped IPA.

shrubber85 (8550) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Bottle. Strong pine/grapefruit hops aroma. Golden yellow color with small head. Sweet citrus malt flavor initially with moderate pine hops finish. Nicely blended - good IPA.

bozoNZ (731) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 22, 2009
Rich golden, nice firm head. Aroma soft and a little winey. Nice enough flavours - grapefruit, a little alcohol phenols in there too. Tangy and not just from the carbonation. Nice enough

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Bottle: Hazy amber orange color with a light white head and nice lacing. The nose is dry and piney with a light fresh orange skin note. Dry grassy and citrusy flavor; lots of grapefruit and light dry malt dust. Finishes refreshing, the dryness and citrus build upon each other and the lack of bitterness adds to the light fruitiness of it all. Good IPA. Very quaffable.

This was the best selection of the variety 12-pack I purchased. Decent IPA, with a light cloudiness. Citrus notes and some spiciness. Would like to try their Double-wide. The rest of the Blvd. variety pack was pretty dull, except perhaps for the "Bully Porter."

thefederalist (296) - Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a light copper, minimal head. Aroma of American hops and alcohol. Flavor is nice and crisp, tart and bitter. There is a bit more alcohol in the aftertaste, but it’s not a huge flaw. Nice thick body. Good effort.

A run of the mill IPA this was a bonus in a recent trade. Boulevard makes decent beers but I have yet to run across one that is so memorable it has made a name for them. On the other hand this could have been far worse. As a daily drinker it would not be a bad investment to keep around for friends and those times when you just want something simple.

Aroma / Appearance - The bronze carbonated body shined through the light of the setting sun. A thick white head trapped the hoppiness for around ten minutes. When it did a pleasing texture of grapefruit and melon was the result. Tinged with a sugary icing it was a bit different than I thought going in. The overall impression was a bit like a store bought gingersnap cookie.

Flavor / Palate - Honey drizzed over a plain pretzel confused the senses for a while until I figured out what was going on. Unlike many IPAs, which have a hoppy bite from the start, this one takes time to set in. It may be the bottle was not fresh enough but even so I would have expected more hoppiness and less doughiness in the finish. All told it is a so-so IPA which hints at the potential to be better.
