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.

This is a cloudy, hazy, orange-golden brew. The head is white and thin, and the smell is very hoppy. Spice, pine, and a little citrus. The taste is dryish, with some fruit and lots of hops. Bitterness comes in the foretaste, with a little malt to balance. Medium in body and fairly drinkable.

This beer is just on the hoppy side of life. It is crisp with some short lived bitterness. It has a citrus a pine nose and tastes of barley, honey, straw, citrus and pine. It pours a sparkling golden hue with a large slightly off-white head.

Solid IPA from opening sip to the last drop. Golden and slightly hazey look. Clean taste with a semi citrus finish. Somewhat of a lighter feel than that of its brethren. Great IPA to start with for newbies to the hop centric style.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/19/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA. All around great complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Good IPA to acquire the taste. I'm more of a Dopplebock guy myself but this is a nice beer

Golden body big bubbly white head that looks like it will stick
big citrus aroma is that Citra? With a slight pungent wacky baccy note too
This has a lovely flavour, starts with lemon & hints of mandarin, goes through to cheesecake base maltiness then warms to a lasting bitter finish
The let down is mouth feel, it feels wishy washy & watery, no real substance to back up a lot of big flavour
Nice looking ale, big aroma, fantastic big but balanced flavour let down by mouthfeel but still I like this, I like it a lot.

I am always picking up something I haven't tried. I'm glad I happened on to this one. Starts out real clean ( one of the type you would like to crack open on a 90 degree day) and leaves you with a nice hoppy aroma. I enjoyed this beer start to finish and very little question remained after I was done with a couple. Easy drinking IPA that satisfies my IPA cravings.

Looks like an IPA. Smells like an IPA. Tastes like an IPA. Maybe a little harsh for the lowish ABV. Very generic IPA. Can't really say anything bad, but I wouldn't get it again.

Not such a special beer but also drank it a few days before the expiration date so that may have played a role

The people at Boulevard are cocksuckers. This is one of the first IPAs I ever enjoyed. It's a classic to me and one that everybody should try. I've never had it on tap but that would be much better. This was poured from a fresh bottle into a claret glass. Here we go.

Look: The color is pure gold like clover honey. They head is off white and consists of small bubbles. Lacing is apparent down the glass as I drink.

Smell: A lovely sweet floral aroma prevails but with undertones of malty goodness. The classic biscuity malt character is harmonious with tropical and fruity hops.

Taste: Slightly bitter tropical fruit hops and a touch of peach play partner to equally present malt backbone that is well balanced.

Feel: Smooth, crisp, and full all at the same time. It is dry at the end with a bit of lingering from the hop terpenes. Mild astringency is also present but fleeting.

Overall: This is the best beer Boulevard manages to produce year round, and like all of their beers it has extremely weak ABV but possess definite quality. This is a beginner's IPA. Oh, and fuck Boulevard. They are as much craft beer as Blue Moon. I can't wait for them to eat dirt.

Bright, clean, refreshing and easy going down! Very pleased to have this after a tough day. A bit watery in the mouthfeel but not to much to complain about here. Not a stunner but very good indeed!

Terrific, golden appearance with a rocky, white head. Good carbonation. Aroma of piney hops with some citrus in the background. Some wheat and bready malts. Taste of hops, wheat and malt. Nothing special. Medium mouthfeel. Good bitterness. Finishes dry. Overall, a solid IPA. A bit run-of-the-mill, but enjoyable.

I don't like IPAs but always trying different beers. Smell is great; dandelion and grapefruit. No bitter IPA aftertaste but is watered down. Color is gold; almost perfect.

A dark yellow-orange brew shines bright and displays complete clarity. The head is just off-white, moderately sized, with good retention and lace stretching out on the glass.
The aroma is lots of grapefruit with some lemon and grapefruit rind. Otherwise, there's a bit of dry malts and some flowery notes.
In the flavor, the hops are big on citrus, downright juicy in the middle, but with a touch of salty rind on the end. Bitterness makes a good show but lots of balance, and zest is this beer's main feature.
The body is medium, and it's got some nice bite. It runs medium dry and doesn't give up clean for smooth. It lingers with a nice bitter dryness.

A great looking IPA. Beautiful golden honey in color with a thick white head. For a two month old bottle, the smell and taste of the hops were moderate, yet pleasant. Very floral with some melon. Easy drinking, for sure.

Finger of fluffy white head on a golden amber body. Clear and carbonated. Spiegelau letting this one breathe and bubble. Super fresh too. Some lemon and generic bitterness on the nose, bit of a resiny, dank note. A savory note in there too. Nice and balanced on the palate, bitterness on the front, smooth, slightly spicy yeast note know background. Almost a lager like finish on this one. Smooth as can be. This is different. Mouthfeel is unbeatable. I could easily quaff more than one of these under the right circumstances.

Clear gold with a modest head of white foam.
Aroma-Fruity, tropical hop note
Taste-Nice wave of tropical fruity hops, leading to a bitter ,white grapefruit finish. Solid IPA all around.

This is a really well executed hop forward IPA. This one has minimal malt backbone in order to really let the hops shine.

Would purchase again if in the mood for a hop forward IPA.

Here goes:

A: Clear, yellow-orange with some solid particles floating in solution. Pours an OK head with good lacing.

S: Very simple and muted - just OK. Very grassy/floral.

T: Rather simple, but not bad. Some pine, but the majority of the hops are very herbally and floral. Very little malt.

F: Good - well carbonated, crisp and refreshing.

O: A solid beer.

Very enjoyable IPA. Smooth and goes down like a session-able IPA. When wanting a decent IPA, this one you should grab. Smooth drinking.
