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 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a nonical pint glass in me gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average given the brewery. No visible best before or bottled on date.

Served straight from the fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

Paired with pretzels.

A: Pours a five finger head of little (if any cream), poor thickness, and great retention - though it does seem overcarbonated. No lacing. Body colour is a clear copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Translucent. Fairly vibrant. Typical of the style.

Sm: Floral hops, hints of citrus, clean malts, wheat, and soap. Some zest. An average strength aroma. Pleasant.

T: Floral hops, clean malts, hop bitterness, vague citrus, and grapefruit. Imbalanced and badly built for the style. Rather mediocre. Lacks complexity and subtlety.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Carbonation is about right. A bit thin.

Dr: Drinkable but pedestrian. A disappointment from Boulevard. I wouldn't trifle with this again. A mundane IPA.

Apperance: Pours an attractive orange/copper/golden wheat-looking beer with a finger of head. Appears a textbook IPA for sure.

Smell: Pine takes over, but mild hops are present. Pleasant.

Taste: Mild bitterness at first, with piney hops in the aftertaste. Good, simple beer.

Mouthfeel: Single-Wide is a light/medium bodied brew. Nice carbonation.

Overall: I've had IPAs I like better, but this one hits that spot just fine. It's on the lighter end of the spectrum, as I seem to remember from the last time I had it, months ago. I'd have no trouble at all with a six pack of this stuff. It invites you to guzzle it. A tasty beer that I'd like to see on tap in more Midwestern bars I frequent.

Two fingers of head. Clear, hazy dark straw colored body.
Smell is a strong pine without anything else in the mix.
Taste is a solid bitterness with a dry bite. Slight lemon and sweetness.
Soft texture, moderate carbonation and a medium body.
Solid IPA that you can't go wrong with.

Poured into a nonic a hazy lighter amber shade with a a huge blooming white head that went over the sides even with a softer pour.Juicy grapefruit-like hops over top of some alcohol and biscuit malt,the alcohol was pretty large for a smaller beer.Grapefruit flavors along with fruity/gummy notes,it is a little sweet but the hops really burst out at ya.It's a little watery in the back end but it's a flavor packed ipa,again the alcohol to me seems bigger than what it is.

Clear golden yellow with a nice, lumpy white head of milk shake froth on top. Hoppy aroma...orange, zesty citrus, pine needles with a touch of backing sweet malt. Pale malt, grapefruit pulp, tea, grass, and floral sweetness. Medium bodied, crisp, dry mouthfeel. Pretty refreshing stuff. I wouldn't go out of my way to get this, but I'm sure I'll pick it up again at some point.
