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.

When I get tired of paying $10 a 4 pack for most higher end brews, this is a good alternative. It is a great drinking IPA. I agree somewhat that the single wide is a better drinking beer then the double in that when I am in the mood for 2-3 beers, then I go the single-wide route. The double-wide is more of a one beer experience.
A-love the orange color of this beer when poured
S-hops but not crazy strong, some floral
T-a mild IPA that does not overpower, again, this is one that I drink when I plan on downing 2-3 washing the car or something
M-It's a Boulevard, their normal beers are balanced while the smokestack series are big. T
O-This is one I rotate and drink at least monthly, a solid value in an IPA. I would love this one in a can!

Yo. The Single Wide is Boulevard's Great Achievement. I really love drinking this beer, especially when it is on sale and cheap. As I mentioned in the Double Wide review, the Single Wide is actually the better of the two Wides. The hop presence in this beer has a very pleasant citrus, grapefruit, apricot, mint taste to it. It was really refreshing on a hot windy Iowa afternoon. Glorious hop nose and a balanced attack on the maltiness. Overall a really good beer drinking experience.

An aggressive pour into a pint glass.
Bottle best by 10/13/12.

A- Pours a nice hazy orangish yellow, with 3 fingers of thick, creamy, soapy, off white head that is lingering a while and leaving some thick lacing on the glass.

S- Floral on the nose, with a decent amount of pine on a solid malt backbone. Smells refreshing.

T- Follows nose well. Pleasant citrusy bitterness thats not too sticky. Slightly crisp dry finish.

M- Medium light body, with a good amount of carbonation.

O- Another easy drinker from Boulevard. A nice, easy to get, economical, beer.

Golden-orange hazy body with a tight fluffy white head. Good lacing.

Grassy and perfume hop smell. Slightly bready malt.

Grassy, floral, and a bit of pine with a good malt backbone. Moderately bitter.

Clean and light mouthfeel. Low carbonatin.

This is a pretty good ipa and quenches a hop fix, but doesn't stand up to many of the top notch ipas out there.

Poured into an appropriate Duvel Tulip glass.
APPEARANCE- Tall, foamy, white head which had good retention and left an umbrella of lacing on the walls of the tulip glass.

SMELL- Huge smell of hops smacks you in the face followed by pine and a strong medicinal marijuana smell. Peach, orange peel and spices also fulfill the potent smell.

TASTE- Trails the smell closely behind. Strong presence of hops and tropical fruits. Bitter, sweet and smooth from beginning to end.

MOUTHFEEL- Ends a bit dry, but not completely. A juicy presence is left coating the mouth while making me want another sip. Medium carbonated.

Tasty IPA to say the least. 4 out of 5 rating all the way accross. Has many elements that make a good IPA stand out a bit from the crowd. Boulevard Brewing is starting to become one of my easy to acquire favorites.

Murky light amber with a solid soapy white foam sheet. Smells of grassy hops and an ESB style malt background. Flavor is bitter with grass, soil and bitter hops. Pretty euro IPA stylization if you ask me. Medium bodied with really hi carb, very foamy. Fine beer, easy drinking, but nothing above the rest.

Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a Duvel tulip. Best by 08/17/12 on bottle neck. Received from my loving parents.

A: Slightly orangish golden with 1-2 finger off-white head with good retention and a nice curtain of lacing around the top of the glass.

S: A very fresh wet hop aroma overall that is slightly dank but very floral and herbal with a nice zinger of citrus. The pale maltiness carries a small amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Full of flavor with a lot of long-lasting bitterness that holds through the citrus, pine, and floral hops. The herbal character is a lot less pronounced, and there is no grassiness despite a probable big dry-hop. The caramel in the aroma has the same understated presence in the flavor which adds some crispness as it counters the hops.

M: The carbonation is a bit too high on this beer, but otherwise the solid medium body and long aftertaste still satisfies.

O: A very good core IPA from Boulevard. My family brought me quite a few of their offerings that I look forward to in the coming weeks.
