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.

12oz bottle poured into my Terrapin glass. It poured slightly hazy and amber in color with a thick, frothy head to it. It left some thick, rocky looking lacing on the edges of the glass as I drank it as well.

The aroma has a citrusy hoppiness to it with some strong notes of grapefruit and orange peel to it. I get a some bready malts playing a support role as well.

The taste also shows a lot of grapefruit like citrus to it with a little bit of a brighter orange like flavor. I get a little more of a sweet, bready, maltiness to it as well.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being average. Overall it was a pretty good beer, but not a really outstanding one of the style. Pretty drinkable and nicely flavored overall though.

Thanks to Beerman207 for the hook up on this one. It's been in my fridge for a few weeks and I kind of forgot about it, so I figure it's best to get it drank before it sits any longer. Review is from notes taken on 2/25/2012.

Appearance: Pour is a hazy and light golden/coppery color; strong carbonation bubbling up throughout and there is plenty of floaties in the body from the additional yeast used at bottling; starts with a fluffy, one-finger, slightly off-white head with decent retention;

Smell: Smell is pretty solid when I first crack it and I love the blend of the bitter and fruity hops with the sweeter aspect from the yeast; really reminiscent of grapefruit.

Taste: Pretty good, but it comes across a little weaker than I hoped for based upon the smell -- perhaps I let it sit too long in the fridge; it's still good, but just comes across a tad watery; the bitter grapefruit-like hops are up front, and there is a nice grainy and sweeter breadiness that follows up from behind. I like IPAs they're a pretty straight forward beer than can avoid become overly complicated, but this does have the nice touch of the added yeast at bottling and it does give it just a nice twist.

Mouthfeel: About what I would like in a beer of tho caliber-- body is light and not imposing; the carbonation is just about spot on and ranges from sharp pricks to a smooth bubbliness around the rest of the palate. A nice light aftertaste is certainly pleasant as it lingers around.

Overall: I would definitely pick this beer up again, but I would force myself to try to drink it a little sooner to avoid any adverse aging affects on the beer itself. Still a solid beer and I would drink this all summer whether sitting on a lawn mower or standing in front of a grill.

Poured from the bottle into a mug. I almost broke my neck the first time I tried to drink this because I had just cleaned my wood floors and was wearing socks. Needless to say, I cleaned them again because IPA is not a great addition to wood floors. So here goes the second attempt.

Appearance - Pours a hazy gold, nice thick, creamy head which slowly dissipates and never totally goes away. Nice bubble action inside the brew too.

Smell - Big pine, floral, citrus, just a hint of yeast and grain. Just like an IPA should smell.

Taste - Follows the nose almost to a T. Good balanced taste between the hops and malts.

Mouthfeel - Finishes pretty clean and bitter. Like it.

Overall - What can I say? Another solid offering from Boulevard, could certainly be used as a sessionable beer. There isn't a thing wrong with this beer, in fact I really like it. However, if given the choice, I will go with Boulevards Double Wide IPA, which is this beer ramped up to an Imperial. It's every bit as good, just with more ABV. Boulevard strikes again
