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.

Boulevard Single-Wide I.P.A. has a thick, creamy, off-white head and a hazy, orange-golden appearance, with lots of streaming bubbles and fine particulate matter floating about. The aroma is very heavy on citrus hops and water. Taste is mostly and heavily grape fruit, with some sweetness. Some slight malt is detected, but it’s very subtle. Mouthfeel is fluffy, and Boulevard Single-Wide I.P.A. finishes semi-dry and bitter. Overall, I quite enjoyed this and rate it highly. RJT

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Bottle. Cloudy yellow pour, mini-gusher. Have to give Boulevard kudos for bottle-conditioning this one, but my 6-pack is way too carbonated. Didn’t see it in other reviews so assuming it’s isolated to a few batches, but there is too much foam and the biting carbonation detracts from everything else with this beer. Sans the crazy fizz, the taste is pretty decent IPA, hops are more of the pine-y variety, good malt balance, overall what you would expect, but again the mouthfeel and carbonation of this one is unpleasant. Buuurrp.

Piney hop aroma. Golden in color with excellent white head. Piney, sweet aroma. A pretty good IPA.

WabashMan (1023) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2011
A decent IPA, but somewhat one dimensional, with a clear focus on the hops and little else of note.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2011 The aroma is quite mild. I detected hops, but I swear it’s as if they’ve been dipped in milk. There’s a sweet cream to it behind the hops. The head is stark white and light. The laces left on the glass were cloud-like and thick. The brew is light yellow like an herbal tea. That does not mean the color is unappealing, there’s just that yellow coloring without much character. I’m afraid that there’s not much to the flavor. It’s rather bland beyond the weak influence of the hops. I was expecting a lot more from something costing $9 a sixer. The palate is not mistreated in any way, but the tongue suffers from a bit of drying out after the brew has passed. UPDATE: After having another one, I must admit that my tastebuds must have been mildly asleep the day I reviewed this one. Upon further review, the flavor is a bit more lively than I had first experienced. It is a one trick pony, but it certainly deserves more credit than I gave it. The flavor is all hops, though it is strictly relying on the hops to see it through. Honestly, it would be a good session IPA is the price was reasonable or, if it packed more of a respectable ABV.

trevor211 (1533) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Pours a cloudy orange with some sediment and a lively carbonation. Very nice nose. Good balance between caramel and hops, and letting the hops shine through like an IPA should. Same story in the flavor -- there’s something of a lazy battle between citrus hops and brown sugar/caramel malts in your mouth... and the hops just barely win out by the aftertaste. Good stuff for a sixer.

hayden1215 (319) - Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Lightly hazy yellow in color, body with a medium white head. Aroma is pineapple, citrus, florals, some grass, and light spruce. Hops flavor and caramel malt. Prefer the double wide but this is good.

brokensail (15214) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUL 6, 2011
A: The pour is a hazed golden-amber color with about a finger of white head. S: There’s a nice tangy citrus note to the nose. Lots of grapefruit with some tangerine and orange zest. The wheat comes through well and there is a pleasant bready character to the aroma. A touch of floral hops and a bit of pine. T: Starts off with an almost orange-grapefruit juice flavor. Nice fresh citrus and a lot of citrus zest. Some floral and pine notes with a moderate bitterness. A decent sweetness from the wheat and bread flavors. M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: This was a pretty good IPA. Perhaps not quite to my "West Coast" preference, but still solid.

Location: Draft at the Flying Saucer - Little Rock, 6/22/11

Aroma: The nose has some citrus hops, grapefruit, pine, and dough
Appearance: The pour is a golden color with a white head atop it
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet and medium bitter, tastes fairly balanced
Palate: The body is medium, it has a somewhat sticky mouthfeel, somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: Overall, this was a fairly standard IPA. A good example that is well-made and drinkable. I imagine this is a go-to for those for whom this is a local (or localish) brewery, as it seems to be rather available around these parts and from a fairly quality brewery.
