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.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Poured a slightly hazy orange color with a barely off-white, rocky head and good lacing. The aroma is light citrus and heavy on the sharp pine hops. The flavor is dominated by hops but is well complimented by some light peppery spice and some caramel sweetness that cuts through just a bit. Expectedly succinct finish. Pretty good.

sharp tasting IPA for sure. Leaves quite a bitter taste on my tongue, but I can still appreciate it as a well made beer. 12 oz. bottle @ 70F.

Bottle best before August 14, 2009. I’m really looking forward to this one. The Boulevard line up is pretty solid indeed. The pour is beautiful: bright orange, cloudy, and a massively fluffy white head erupts. Good stuff. The aroma is hoppy, plenty of citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, and a sour twinge. Man. This is a well balanced IPA, lots of hops, fruits all over the place, just enough malts to balance. But y’know, there is this sour thing going on. . kind of metallic, it’s the only thing wrong with the beer and it’s so out of place. If it wasn’t for that I would love this brew. But, everytime I take a swing it leaves that almost, just almost smooth hoppy finish on my palate that leaves enough to hope for more. I will revisit.

Aroma is certainly hoppy enough, that extentive array of hops used results in a big hodgepodge aroma,with little hints of everything,certainly pleasant enough though,rather full body taste,a huge soup of slightly sweet caramel malting and again the monster blend of hops,very interesting,different from other IPA’s in a good way,bitter enough to satisfy the hop lover in me. Thanks Kingpin,who donated this to me without his knowledge

Bottle (12oz). Shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Cloudy orange, decent frothy white head. Light, juicy, tropical fruit - leafy pine hop aroma - so good, just what you want in an IPA (hel-lo Ontario brewers - smell this, then MAKE SOME!). Great hop/malt balance, fruity and somewhat resiny, how to describe other than just right? Average body, light astringency, light carbonation, a really smooth bitter/malty linger - super drinking IPA - thanks for the share, Al!

garthicus (2755) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 15, 2009
With thanks to blutt59 for sending this to me in a trade, shared with HogTownHarry & Blankboy. Appearance: Luminous hazy yellow with a nice white head. Aroma: Lovely IPA aroma, fresh fruit, mango, pineapple, lemons, yeast, lots of pine hops. Flavour: Nice lemon and yeast upfront, hops, lemons, pine and a nice tingle on the tip of the tongue in the finish. Nice.

SpringsLicker (3196) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Slightly hazy dark yellow with a tall, frothy long lasting white head. Big juicy malt aroma with lots of citrusy hops. Well balanced but not as complex as the aroma hinted at.

Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a sticky white head. Piney aroma, with a big malt bill followed by a pleasing bitter finish.

Bottle. So this is one of the reasons I’ve been looking forward to the trip to St. Louis... and the beer is certainly worthy of some excitement. It won’t blow windows out of cars or anything, but it is a solid IPA and fairly inexpensive. Pours a light orange/amber with a very large head and aromas that show off a nice mix of hops. Grapefruit, mango and pineapple, a bit of a floral hops presence, a little bit of spruce. Flavor is similar... the hops presence is nice and plays well with the malt, but there is not a front-runner among the hops players that bashes you over the head and takes complete control. As is, it is a nice mix and fairly nice. I have noticed a bit of variability between bottles.
