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.

From the bottle, it poured hazy honey colored with plenty of fluffy off-white head. Great citrus rind and caramel aroma. I would call it medium bodied, does not seem to hold up very well with any warmth. Definite hoppy flavor, but not quite the bold, chewy IPA I was expecting. Still, very delicious with enough hops to satisfy.

Hazy yellow orange with an off white head that slowly recedes and leaves some spotty lacing. Inviting aroma of citrus, caramel and pine. Taste is kind of a let down after the aroma. Mild citrus and caramel with a bitter bite at the end that hangs out a long time. Kind of a sudsy mouthfeel…something about this one was off.

Not a bad IPA. It’s far from bold, but there is an interesting orange juice quality to the nose that I like. Tasty beer, just more of an APA than an IPA.

Bottle; poured a golden amber color with a big, foamy off white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, caramel, and yeast/lemon. Flavor wasn’t great for me; a bit of a let down honestly. That being said it was still solid. A little bit of caramel balance, with an average amount of bitterness and flavor from the hops. About middle of the road for the style for me.

12oz. Pour is hazy straw color with a thick foamy off white head. Aromas of piney hops, resin, and some citrus fruit. Flavor is grapefruit, piney hops, and slight caramel in the finish. Nicely dont but nothing over the top.

Golden blonde pour into thick, puffy, foamy yellow head that dissipates into sticky lacing on the glass.Aroma of piney hops and caramel malt. Initial flavor of hops fading into a citrusy sweetness with a lingering hoppy finish.

StefanSD (2191) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUN 21, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of soonah. Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a big white head that has fair retention and some lacing. The aroma is moderate in strength with pine, citrus and cotton candy. The flavor biter hops forward with pine, grapefruit and some rock candy. The mouthfeel was a bit on the thin side. The finish was long with lingering biter walnuts. Overall: A decent IPA.

This is a very tasty IPA, especially at 6.99 a 6 pack. When you pour this you get a glass full of deep golden liquid and a nice fluffy head. The smell is sharp hoppiness with the atypical citrus. When tasting this your tongue will sing because of the hoppiness of this beer. It has a clean palate. This is a great go to IPA and you are getting a great product for the price.

Pours gold into the glass with a white head. Aroma is citrusy and slightly grassy. Sharp bitterness on the tongue with a wonderful amount of effervescent carbonation from the bottle conditioning. Flavor is citrusy with just enough malt. Really enjoy this IPA and find it quite sessionable.

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
