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.

Upon pouring, a two to three finger white fluffy head forms that retains pretty well and laces. The body is a straw orangish color that is not a strong color but still has that IPA look. Looks good.

It smells definitely of hops. Along with that you can smell citrus and yeast.

The taste is of hops and citrus. Nice taste. Hopburst in my opinion is better but I still like it.

Mouthfeel is nice. not much to say about it.

I like it and buy it all the time. Give it a try if you like IPA's

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a premium pint glass. Pours a dark straw color with a 1 finger white head with nice lacing throughout. The floraly smell of the hops dominates the aroma of this beer, but it is very pleasant and not overly strong. Has a nice hop bite to the taste, but it is not over powering and actually is a nice bite given as it is going down. The carbonation seems a little high, but does not make the beer unpalatable. Overall, a very good beer and definably one I wish was out East so I could enjoy it more often.

I bought a single bottle of this as part of a M&M 6-pack from Binny’s in Downer’s Grove, IL for $9.99 in Early 2012.

Pours a cloudy, copper color with a thick, fluffy head. Lacing clings to the side of the glass as you take in a mild scent of bitter hops. The taste is rather bold and bitter. Texture is smooth and very drinkable. Full of citrus, wheat, and yeast. Carbonation continues to shoot up during the drinking process. A very well made beer.

A: Wonderful orange hue. Translucent due to the yeast from the secondary fermentation. Good amount of head that does not dissipate quickly. Lots of lace on the sides.

S: Excellent buttery, citrusy aroma. Floral character from the hops.

T: Notes of apple and pear. Starts sweet, and ends with a strong bitter, yeasty flavor.

M: Well-carbonated. A bit clingy due to the hops oil. Very rich.

O: Enjoyed it a lot.

A- Big two inch white fluffy head on a yeast sediment laced dull orange body. Head sticks around like a champ. Above average spotty lacing.

S- Soft citrus notes, oranges. Some yeasty qualities.

T- Lemon zest at the forefront of the citrusy hop profile. Bananas? Leaves a bitter taste in the mouth after each sip.

M- Crisp carbonation. Medium mouthfeel.

D/O- A solid middle-of-the-road IPA. Very drinkable/sessionable. Agree with others in stating this is like an IPA mixed with a witbier. Worth a try for American Pale Wheat Ale fans.

A nice a IPA. Very tolerable flavor but not lacking by any means. The expected rush of "hoppy" flavor from start to finish without any overpowering alcohol flavor or bitter displeasure. Anyone wanting to try IPAs would do well to make this one of their first ones. Its a great starter! Enjoy!

Best by 6/8/12

A: Cloudy golden amber in color. An aggressive pour yields three fingers of frothy, white head. The head has great staying power and leaves behind lots of caked on lacing and a frothy cap. Really nice looking beer.

S: Some lemony citrus and bready malts. Has a good balance of malt sweetness and bitterness from the malts. Nothing spectacular.

T: Lemon, pepper spicyness, bready, slightly toasted malts. Nice, bitter finish. Again, like the smell, nothing spectacular, but solid.

M: On the full side of medium, almost creamy. Dry and bitter.

O: Single Wide is a solid, well balanced, enjoyable beer. I'd be happy to drink this again.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass. Best by date is 6/8/12.

A - Pours a translucent light amber. I got a little carried away with the pours, so I ended up with a massive, frothy/pillowy white head. Doesn't look to be too carbonated. Man, that head hangs around for ever.

S - Citrusy hops blended with a solid malt body. Nothing too strong going on here.

T - Lemony citrus flavors are what really stand out to me. It's not even really citrus hops - just kind of citrusy. As others have noted, this does kind of remind me of Boulevard wheat in an odd way.

M - medium bodied, a bit creamy feeling, a bit slick.

O - Overall, I was a bit underwhelmed by this beer. I expect some stronger flavors from an American IPA, and this just didn't quite get there. I get put a few back though.

Poured from their 12oz bottle...

Appearance - Poured nearly 3 fingers of thick bumpy yellow cumulus clouds, color of the beer is a gorgeous cloudy yellow amber, tons of carb bubbles, almost champagne like. There is very nice lacing being left in the glass.

Smell - Whoah, lots of citrus here, especially pineapple and lemon, also getting some spiciness like coriander, and faint banana bread, almost like a hefeweizen, hmmm...

Taste - Starts with tart citrus flavors of grapefruit and strong lemon, then there is some malt and wheat bread and yeast flavors at the center, quickly followed by some spices like coriander and white pepper, finishing with grassy and floral hop flavors, finishes a tad bitter and dry, with citrus pockets in the corners of the mouth. I literally get a tropical fruit whiff in the sinuses while drinking this.

Mouthfeel - This beer is actually very smooth, just short of creamy thanks to lively medium carb that explodes across the tongue half way thru the sip. Very drinkable, goes down easy.

Overall - This looks, tastes and drinks alot like a hefeweizen with stonger citrus notes and grassy floral hops on the backend. I see the IPA characteristics here, but this looks, tastes and even feels far more like a cross between an ipa and a wit/hefeweizen. A very interesting take on an ipa, one that I enjoyed, and would try again. Very sesionable at 5.7%, no alcohol presence.
