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.

12oz bottle pulled out of a nice sampler pack which cost $14. Clear gold-yellow with a frothy white head. It smells like its bitter and has a distinct lemon-citrus aroma, not bad. More lemon on the taste but to be honest the flavor profile on this makes me think of pale ale much more than an IPA. Mouthfeel is fine and this is quite easy to drink but again only the bitterness makes me think IPA. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-31-2009 20:46:02

Pours a hazy light orange color. Absolutely huge (4 fingers+) that was still a good finger high after 5 minutes. Glorious aroma with citrus, some caramel and lots of pine. Flavor improved as the beer warmed--in my first sip, all I tasted were a lot of bittering hops. But halfway through, I started getting all kinds of new flavors of some caramel sticky-sweetness and grapefruit. Medium-bodied and clean finish with lots of hop bitterness. A very nice session IPA.

A golden practically clear beer with a 1/4" head that lasts 3 seconds. Weak hop aroma. Sugary and hoppy flavr, a little sour. Overall, forgettable. Palate is a little bitter and slightly dry. Truly reminiscent of the new yrk subway.

This IPA does not give off lots of fruity notes, yet is full of intense flavor. Its flavor lasts long after the swallow. Nice and smooth bitter afterburn. Like this a lot.

Bottle form Weskbob. Thanks pal. Pours a hazy yellow with a big white head. The head is froathy and lasting. Aroma is good mostly hoppy with touches of yeast and citrus. Has a good carbonation and an okay mouthfeel. The flavor is decent with plenty of bitter hoppiness. Has a drylike texture. A solid finish with a real good aftertaste. This is a tasty ipa.

Murky gold color with a large head. Dusty grain aroma and a smidge of citrus hops. Grainy malt tasate with only a bit of bitterness. Quite drinkable.

Chef Chad (104) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Music.."Yummy Down on This" by Bloodhound Gang Bright Nose with some spice and floral, some pine and alcohol. Pours a gorgeous cloudy light orange with white head that last for days... Carbonation is fantastic and makes the beer very refreshing a lighter medium body for the style it finishes very crisp and smooth. After letting this IPA breath a bit the other flavors cut through the hops a bit.. Hops, Pine, spruce, some fruit tones and a good sweet malt backbone. The beer finishes bitter but not too much. It certainly leaves you wanting more and it is not dry. The more it opens up you start to get more grapefruit and some citrus to it... "

12 oz bottle. Cloudy yellow orange with a pillowy white head. Nose is dough, spicy orange and lemon peel; subdued. Crisp, medium light with cleansing carb. Taste is orange peel, grass, lemon basil and a touch of toffee. Lingering bitterness. Nice.

Draught at Tomato Head in Maryville. Pours a hazy brass with very small white head. The aroma is quite fruity, with tangerine, peach, and various other citrus fruits; there’s also a strong toffee-like malt in there with some canteloupe and honey notes. The flavor is pretty good, too... very English style malts with a sort of toffee and leather thing going on, but with lots of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit from the hops. It finishes with a mild wood/pine bitterness. Very drinkable.

hopscotch (9228) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Bottle... Pours hazy and golden with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Great retention. Malty, earthy nose provides grapefruit, pine and honey with a rumor of tropical fruit. Medium-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Well-balanced. Biscuit and toffee sweetness is leveled nicely by a spunky west coast hop bite. Lightly bitter, coarse, dry finish.
