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.

Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a massive 4-finger white head, gets bubbly and more porous as it recedes, leaves solid ring and dense lace, very good looking.

Nose is a fragrant mix of light, floury biscuit malt with hop tones of pink grapefruit, flowers and grass.

Palate is light-med bodied with juicy, lean malt and hoppy flavors of grapefruit and melon. The bitterness comes in nice and crisply with a faint creamy yeasty texture and leaves some white clove lingering on the bitter finish.

Overall, a pretty solid IPA. The flavors aren't anything crazy but the balance is nice, making this nicely glugable.

Reviewed December 16, 2011. Poured a 12 oz bottle into a Pint glass.

A: This appears as a nice mix of Amber and Selective Yellow. It poured a glorious 1 1/2 fingered head. There is some nice carbonation that rises as well, this makes the lacing nicely apparent.

S: A nice solid citrus presents here. The hops that present itself here are nicely blended with some honey.

T: The hops here are quite strange. They are not to strong, but they definitely pop at you. What lingers as bitterness almost has a sweetness to it. The citrus definitely feels like a light grapefruit, not to strong.

M: The body is nice and active with carbonation with even a nice medium body.

O: This was a decent IPA, but nothing spectacular. There are better IPAs than this, but this does come in a 6-pack if you were hoping for just a quick IPA.

Poured into a snifter. "Best By" date clearly stamped on bottle. Bottle conditioned!

Pours with a cloudy orange body under an abundant off white head (three full fingers). Excellent lacing.

Smells unusually fruity, sweet, and juicy. Sometimes IPAs lean more towards the bitter side, but this one is the opposite, at least in terms of aroma. Pineapple makes a good showing, as does a more subtle notes of fresh basil, grapefruit peel, and lemon grass.

The taste certainly entails more bitterness than the nose suggested, but allows enough malt to poke through to keep this balanced. The hops are presented well and are given room to shine, and are not totally overwhelmed with bitterness. The hops flavors are complex and layered, but lack the certain sparkle that only a few IPAs achieve.

The mouthfeel is lighter because of the higher than average carbonation. I personally feel that bottle conditioning adds something subtle to the mouthfeel and body, and I almost always prefer it to filtered beer with ales. In this particular example it is done well.

Conclusion: This is a tasty IPA. Solid, well mannered, and full flavored. Well done.
