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.

Comes out of the bottle a milky golden yellow. After a swirl and another pour, the haze starts to form in the glass giving it a dark wit look to it. The head is bright and white, and 100% IPA with its craterous look. It falls on the sides leaving a peak in the middle and a thick, sticky lace on the glass.

It's citrus like you'd expect, but it's got a pineapple smell that sets this beer apart. Faint pine in the background with some bready notes as well.

Tastes like it smells, and again, the pineapple flavors make it distinct. A bit more pine on the tongue with a leathery taste to it.

Acidic, citric, bitter, earthy. Resiny pine, kind of a sticky bitter finish.

Overall, a really drinkable beer. Has good, albeit unusual flavors. Goes down easy. Could use more alcohol, but extremely smooth for an IPA.

12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe. Best by date of 12/29/12.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange. An abundance of small particles hang in suspension. Head formation and retention is excellent. A good three fingers of rocky, bone white froth cap the beer. Lacing is thick and clumpy, and it clings everywhere. The particles in suspension ruin the aesthetic. The beer looks great otherwise.

S: Honeydew melon, kiwi, slight passion fruit. Strawberry and tangerine. Orange and lemon peel. Wildflowers. Bread dough.

T: Grapefruit rind and pith. Some pine resin. Bitterness is moderate, but builds a little. All the juicy tropical fruit tastes start to come forward toward the middle. Honeydew melon, kiwi, tangerine. Lemon peel and lemonhead candy. Hops go leafy and weed-like for a bit. A touch yeasty. Doughy malt base provides a solid platform for the hops. Finishes with a mild citrus rind bitterness and a drying bready malt taste.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied. Creamy and very smooth. Moderate carbonation pricks at the tongue.

O: This is a very pleasant little IPA. As with Double Wide, the emphasis seems to be more on balance and hop flavor rather than bitterness and brute force. The smooth but light body further enhances its drinkability. This is one of those beers that seems innocent enough, until its charms render you helpless and you find yourself polishing off the whole six-pack.

Single Wide IPA pours a hazy amber color with a big, frothy off-white head on top. The foam dissolves very slowly leaving behind a coating of netted lace on the glass.

The aroma has lots of orange and grapefruit citrus. However, the hoppy aroma fades fast and what remains are malty notes of caramel and pale malt.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is creamy, with moderate carbonation. The flavor has some nice sweet caramel malt and fruity notes, but is dominated by orange and grapefruit citrus. It finishes bitter with lingering orange citrus and bitterness when gone.

This is an easy drinking, fairly well balanced beer that leans to the hoppy side.
