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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Had on draft at Lures poured into pint

A-The color is a slightly hazy orange with a large white head. Great lacing.

S-The aroma blends caramel malts with resin and floral hop scents.

T-The taste is a blend of pine and citrus hops with a caramel malt.

M-The mouthfeel gives the palate that fuses a somewhat sticky texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a slightly bitter finish.

O-Overall a great sessional IPA by Boulevard need to try the double-wide.

4.06/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass.

APPEARANCE: pours hazy, yellow/amber, two finger head with good retention that eventually dissipated to a thin unbroken layer of small off-white bubbles that remained throughout, lighter carbonation but appropriate for the style, significant lacing.

SMELL: piney resin, citrus, flowers, biscuit.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet, biscuits and then a piney hop blast that lingers nicely, not too overpowering but pleasantly hoppy.

PALATE: lighter carbonation, creamy and chewy, medium body.

OVERALL: I have not had a beer yet from this brewer that I did not enjoy, this is a very good IPA that is a little different than most because it is bottle conditioned and I think that adds to the taste, I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the IPA style.

Bottle brought back from Maryland by my girlfriend.

Pours a bright but rusty looking orange, opaque near the top of glass, but very clear and much lighter orange near the bottom. A one inch head forms, and descends quickly to an oily film, leaving a little bit of lacing.

Smells fairly bitter and dank, a little bit of citrus and a lot of pine.

The taste is similar. This is best by 8/20/13, but I'm fairly certain Boulevard dates their IPAs at a 9 month lifespan, so this is old. It's kept hop flavor fairly well, but it seems to have devolved into a non-complex bitterfest. Lots of pine, and grapefruit rind, with apparent juicy fruit flavor sort of faded away.

Medium bodied, a bit thicker than I'd expect from a single IPA. Very bitter, but still quite drinkable, with a medium amount of carbonation.

Not bad, but would like to try this one fresh.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Enjoyed on tap at Red Lyon in Lawrence, KS. Served in a standard 16 oz tumbler glass.

Appearance - Pours a brassy orange-brown hued body with just a touch of haziness, but is mostly translucent, allowing me to see through the glass to the other side. Atop the body sits a one finger head with a slightly tan shade to it. Retention is moderate, with the foam sticking around for a minute or two before dissipating to show an alternating mix of film and clusters of thicker suds along the surface of the liquid. Lacing is visible and sticky on the sides of the glass as I drink it down.

Smell - A nice blend of hops provide for notes of citrus fruit and some tropical notes, as well as a more gentle floral component to the overall aroma. Beneath the mix of pineapple, orange zest and flowers is a healthy base from the malt, imparting a nice rustic biscuity profile to the aroma. The smells blend well together, giving an undeniable impression of balance.

Taste - Picks up right where the nose left off, with nice characteristics of orange and citrus zest, with just a hint of the more pungent grapefruit pith giving a pleasant bit of bitterness. There is still a nectar-like floral component here, but it is far in the background, giving way to the fruit, and now, the crackery pale malts that give this beer a nice backbone for the hops. In a day and age when IPAs are climbing over one another in a rush to make the fruitiest, juiciest IPA, this one provides a level of balance that is refreshing.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied and moderate carbonation, with a slightly chewy feel on the tongue.

Overall, an IPA that is just solid. I can find nothing about which to complain, but it's also not the type of IPA that screams to be purchased every time you see it on a shelf. Part of that is due to it's availability, but part of it is also due to it being just a good brew. That said, it likely exceeds the options on most non-craft bar/bottle shop tap lists, so I actually drink it a fair amount.

Serving type: on-tap
