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.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Liquid is straw yellow in color. There's a slight haze, but since it's so light, that it's pretty transparent. White foamy head after a reasonably hard pour and it sticks around, so you have to take your time pouring it into the glass. The head sticks around a little bit, but not much in the way of lacing, just a little around the rim.

Smell is good, a lot of citrus an and fruity flavored hops. Probably Cascade, centennial and a combination of others, but the citrus and zest is totally there. Sort of the classic American IPA aromas here, not tweeked too much.

Taste is good, on par with the smell, again not tweeked too much. Overall it's pretty mild. Slight caremel malts, but not too strong; just enough to provide some initial sweetness. After that there's a satisfactory amount of hops to make a decent enough IPA.

Mouthfeel is good. A little lighter than I expected, but I like my IPA's in the summer, so it's ok. Balance of sweetness to bitterness is good as well as a good carbonation level. Lite and crisp with a clean bitter finish. Not a bad beer at all. I'm the only one of my friends who really doesn't like Boulevard that much but this one is pretty good.

A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a two finger high off white head that took a long time to settle down and left webs of lacing down the sides of the glass
S: There are moderately strong aromas of citrusy and floral hops in the nose. As the beer warms up, hints of pineapple also become evident.
T: The taste is quite citrusy and has flavors of grapefruit and oranges from the hops along with a light to moderate amount of bitterness. Some hints of passionfruit are also noticeable.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate to high amount of carbonation. The bubbly nature of this beer seems to resemble a hefeweizen.
O: I liked this IPA because it had a nice amount of hop aromas and flavors without being too bitter and isn’t that heavy in body compared to other beers in the style. It is rather sessionable.

I wasn't a big fan of their Double Wide IPA, but reading some good things along with the price led me to buy the 6-pack.

Pours into a pint a pale orange with some haze. Explosive white head takes up most of the glass, eventually settles as a big puffy finger in size leaving thick lace, great appearance.

Scent is pleasant and subtle. Getting mostly pale+toasty malts, some sweetness, light fruity, grassy, herbal hops.

Taste is a vast improvement, hops are bigger and brighter while still maintaining the nice malt backbone. Hops seem to be mainly grassy and all around fruit - grapefruit, lemon, citrus, peach. Lots of warm bready+biscuit malt in the finish.

Light, slick mouthfeel with ample carbonation.

I could drink this all day. Lots of tasty hop complexity with a warm toasty finish, big flavor the low ABV. Definitely a great IPA for summer.
