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.

Clear dark gold fizzy pour with huge three finger head with good retention and great lacing. Dry, piney, grassy nose without the typical citrus aroma for an IPA. The taste has a bit more citrus with subtle grapefruit and lemon, but tangy, bitter, grassy pine is the star. The malt sweetness emerges as it warms, but the balance is leaning to the bitter side. With that said, it definitely grows on you with a great crisp, dry finish with a nice lingering hop bite. My first offering from Boulevard but not my last.

12oz stubby poured into an imperial pint glass.

A: Pours a slightly hazy, like an apricot of fuzz with a tough of bright yellow gold. Head is supper fluffy, big fat bubbles fill the glass to near the brim.

S: Reminds me a lot of Two Hearted, hoppy almost to a point of being metalic. Citrus peel, orange rind and grapefruit, very very fruity but a touch of malty sweetness is able to assert itself just slightly against this wall of bitterness.

T/MF: A bit boozy actually but that could be a perception of how bitter this beer is, beer is piny now while a bit of fruit still remains. Very earthy, very piny, again to a point of being almost metallic, but pulled back just enough from becoming unbearable. Aftertaste is incredibly lingering as I could probably be tasting this for days.

D: A solid beer, I'd risk saying it a poor man's Two Hearted but flavors and aromas are not as easily picked apart or as distinct. But for 3 bucks less a six pack you get what you pay for and it ain't thatbad at all.

Slightly hazy golden color with a substantial dense white head that hangs around producing some decent lacing.

The aroma is citrus - grapefruit, hints of lemon and tangerine - with pine resin and some grassy notes over a subtle biscuity malt.

The taste is similiar with a very definite grapefruit note up front, followed by pine resin and biscuits. The finish is dry and heavy on the piney, grassy hops.

Medium bodied, with plenty of carbonation, easy to drink and not overpoweringly bitter. Altogether a very nice IPA for hop lovers.

Served with private tour given by tour guide Poncho (acomplished homebrewer)

With a million and half dollars of new brewing and bottling equipment you need good beer to pay off the investment.

Boulevard Single Wide was well brewed to style (I know - I spent the morning judging American Pale Ale and the mini-Best of Show group including Imperial IPAs and Eng Pale Ales.)

House yeast offers a nice clean character to go with the complex hop aroma and flavor. Base malts support the moderate hop dominated balance. Wonderful appearance even with some obvious dry hopping. Those 1st wort hop flavors are especially delicious and are making me wonder if the bottled versions are as flavorful and drinkable.

Amazingly the next day I found a hoppy APA on tap in Columbia MO that I liked a bit more and as a result have revised my point evaluations down 0.5 for aroma and drinkability. Red Ale and Stout were also served and sampled at the brewery. Amazing improvement in the Irish Red over the bottled versions that I have had in past years.
