Notes/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.

Brewed by Boulevard Brewing Company out of Kansas City, Missouri the Single Wide IPA is brewed in the traditional American IPA style and is a real winner of an IPA. As any good IPA should be able to boast, the Single Wide has a great hop complexity to it complete with Magnum, Columbus, Summit, Cascade, Centennial and Palisade hops just begging to be enjoyed in this offering. With a very smooth and even 5.7% ABV this IPA would make a brilliant session beer or could be enjoyed with just an individual dinner. Make sure you match it to something with a lot of spice and/or heat in order to allow the hops to really shine.

When poured, this IPA gives off a nice goldenrod color with some orange accents noticed when held to light. There is a nice pure white head to this offering that leaves about a one finger width of head at the top of the glass. The head gives way to a decent amount of lacing along the glass during the drinking of the Single Wide IPA.

The hops present in this IPA come through nicely in the smell of this beer as there is a rush of pine and citrus at work in the nose. You can tell through smelling the Single Wide IPA that you are destined to be confronted with a lot of hop character in the taste. Grapefruit and lemon is noted in the nose for the citrus portion of the smell.

There is a pleasant mouthfeel to this IPA that serves the offering well. There is a moderate amount of carbonation that allows the beer to be worked across the palate nicely. The hoppy nature of the Single Wide IPA gives the mouthfeel a bit of a bitter nature but certainly is not in a negative kind of way. Rather, it is a credit to the way that this offering is crafted that the mouthfeel comes across this way.

As can be expected based upon what has previously been written herein, the taste of this IPA is brilliantly focused on making sure the hops within the beer pack the most balanced punch possible. The hops really are noted in this IPA and the taste at times almost seems as though it might be more in line with some double IPAs but rest assured the folks at Boulevard have simply made just a dynamite IPA in the Single Wide. The taste is crisp and there is certainly a certain pine nature to the taste yet the citrus noted in the nose matches the pine nicely and provides a well rounded finished taste. The bitterness of the hops is worked into the taste in an ideal fashion but the bitterness is not too invasive so as to not enjoy the offering fully.

The Single Wide IPA has a good drinkability to it as the flavor is so well rounded with enough complexity to set it apart from other IPAs that might be available. The Single Wide IPA is one of those offerings that if it is available you should rush to enjoy it because it truly is a nice IPA to treat yourself to whenever possible.
