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.

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.

One of my favorite go to IPAs. Pours golden amber with a soft white head that retreats rapidly to a thin film of bubbles. Very balanced nose lending slightly to hops, but a good sweet malt undercurrent rounds out and invites a sip. Tastes are bold hops, citrus, but heavy pine notes take the heavy handed approach. The taste buds are assaulted gently in the way a good drinkable IPA should be.

My first Boulevard beer. Sixer acquired all were poured into pint glasses.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Light lacing strings about the glass.
The smell had a sharp crisp sweet citrus with a nice light back up of bitter pine to combine really nicely.
The taste is pure bittersweet bliss. How this combines is quite good to me. There's a light crisp sweet citrus aftertaste and a dry finish.
The mouthfeel had a light to medium bodied sessionability that finishes with a stellar carbonation running about pummeling my taste buds into submission.
Overall, hot damn, where did this come from? Are all Boulevard beers this good?

12 oz bottle, best by 06/07/2015. That's being generous. Bottled on 11/07/2014, just under a month old.

A: Clear golden body. 2 fingers of head when I poured it. OK retention.

S: Smells pretty nice. Not a huge hop bomb, but solid notes of citrus and pine. The dry-hop works wells.

T: Hop flavors are nice, not a ton of bitterness coming through. Light bready malt backbone that reminds me of Boulevard's other beers.

M: Good carbonation. Soft. This one is pretty low ABV for an IPA and the alcohol is undetectable.

O: I've always liked this beer. And it stands up pretty well. $6.99/sixer is an excellent price, and finding it fresh is always a plus.

From a 12 oz. bottle into a standard pint glass. Pours a light, clear coppery-orange . A nice 1 finger head persists along with Boulevard's trademark carbonation that leads to bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. The aroma is grassy and herbal with subtle hints of pine and citrus. Up front, there is plenty of excellent hop flavor composed predominantly of herbal/floral, pine, grapefruit, orange and lemon peel. Although any citrus is only hinted at the end. There is not much malt presence to speak of, and this really places this brew in the pale ale category. However, a slightly warming salty bread flavor presents itself briefly. The mouth feel overall is light and definitely not dry. This one reminds me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale quite a bit, as both both are not known for malt presence. The difference being the hop profiles. SN is more pine while SW is herbal and floral. Very tasty!

Citrus, grass, herbs and fruit on the nose with traces of graham cracker. A creamy fruity palate somewhere between plum and melon is supported by a nutty graham cracker malt backbone lightly sweetened with caramel that finishes with a citrusy bitter hop finish. The yeast, malt and hop flavors are well balanced. Medium body with fine soft carbonation. Very drinkable.

Best by 03/14/15. Consumed 11/05/14 in a spiegelau ipa glass.

(3.65) A: Pale orange with a good clarity reveals a slow, steady rate of effervesce of medium density. A sloppy pour produced a monstrous 2 inch eggshell white colored head with a surprising rate of retention. Sloppy, spotty, soapy lace.

(3.40) S: Aroma was light in factor, dry pine orange, hard to get a good sense beneath the stubborn head.

(3.65) T: Flavor was dry citrus-whole wheat grain, dry pine hopping. Dry orange peel and grapefruit skin. Flowery with a good rate of dry hopping and warming flowery finish.

(3.60) M: Crisp carbonation and mouthful, doughy-wheat body.

(3.65) O: a good social ipa on par with the pop-up with a little more ummph and dry hopping that lingers a bit.

Clear orange in body with bubbly white head that disappears. Aroma of grass, citrus, pine, mint, light malt kick. Tastes of juicy citrus, pine, mint, wet grass, and even bitterness. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Session able IPA that goes down easy. Slightly filling but nice.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a golden yellow color and a clear texture. There was an inch and a half of foamy, long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of hops, pine, citrus, and malt.

T: Tasted of hops (a pretty good amount), some bready malt, citrus (particularly orange), and a hint of pine. This is a pretty solid flavor, but doesn't jump out at you. Subtle and generally pretty tasty.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: On the whole, a well done, likeable beer. Won't win points for originality, but is probably a good session beer.

Honey yellow in color with a heavy haze and visibly aggressive carbonation. Poured with a huge, billowy, soapy white foam that slowly reduce to a thick, bubbly, sudsy cap. Bready malt, ripe citrus orange, a touch of mint and pine hop aromas. Smooth, slightly thin feel despite the active carbonation. Flavors follow the aromas with bready malt and ripe citrus up front transitioning to herbal mint and pine hop flavors through the middle. Herbal and pine hoppiness follows to the finish as this finished with a light minty, herbal and pine hop bitter aftertaste.

I am surprised that the overall grade is less than 90. Maybe they have improved recently? I just tried Single-Wide this week and I think it is absolutely delicious : ) Very crisp and flavorful

Pours a gold orange with a medium white lasting head. Aroma is some floral pine hops notes upfront slowly mellowing to a citrus orange fruity essence, caramel malt sweetness. Flavor same as aroma sweet caramel malt with moderate citrus grapefruit hops bitterness. A medium body, smooth, good carbonation on the palate. Finishes with a good caramel malt sweetness, there some orange marmalade like fruitiness, with a citrusy grapefruit bitterness for balance. Overall a tasty and pleasant drinking IPA.

This is a solid IPA that gave rise to some of Boulevard's newer offerings. It doesn't taste ridiculously hoppy, which is a good thing in my book, even though the IBUs are toward the upper limit of what I can handle. It's pretty smooth considering that, and if I was more into IPAs I'd probably experiment with the spinoffs of this beer as well.
