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.

best by 10.30.11
A: hazy orange. super thick and creamy off white 1" head lasted the entirety of the 30-45 minutes it took to finish the glass. a thick blanket of lace with no clear spots on every sip. just an amazing head.
S: citrus, pine, and honeyed bready malt. nice and fresh smelling. i like the use of relatively pale malts here. noticeable yeast character.
T: lightly sweet bready malts are washed out by a smooth and slightly juicy hop bitterness. finishes dry with lingering hops. yeasty. just a touch thin.
M: nice and frothy. light to medium body. lively, natural Co2. great job on the bottle conditioning.
O: a very pleasant surprise, as other offerings i've had from boulevard have been underwhelming. i also like that this is under 6% abv...will definitely buy this again. also props for the 6 pack enclosed box which precludes any light from getting in prior to purchase.

A- Tangerine-orange colored, hazy body with a big, bubbly, pillowy head. Lacing is decent, foamy

S- The smell is phenomenal with a distinct yeast/grain flavor typical to rising bread. Of course there are loads of American, citrus-flavored hops.

T- Flavor is mellow besides the glowing hop profile of stingy bitters.

M- Relatively light with foamy carbonation.

D- A damn good, bottle-conditioned beer from Boulevard, probably the best from their regular line-up. I have a great respect for the bottle-conditioned beer that can tame the yeast monster.

Got this on special. It was outdated. I was not worried since the hops would be a good preservative.

I poured this and got a nice fluffy head on a lighter than normal(for an IPA) color. Color was gold with a tinge of orange and some carbonation bubbles. The nose was nice and citrus. The taste is mostly citrus with nice hop profile. Not much malt in this one but it is very appealing to drink and has a nice mouthfeel. The ABV is not as high but beer is still slightly warming. A very good offering for the style.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a foggy golden orange with an average (1-2 finger) white rocky head that slowly receded, down to a light puddled film with a medium collar and very good sticky lacing.

The aroma was of a grain malt, floral hops and a hint of a sweaty yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit), a touch of apricot and maybe peach.

The taste was decently malty with a nice caramel sweetness along with a dose of apricot that was present throughout, and then progressed with a very good hoppiness and a slight citrus presence towards the finish. The flavor hung around for a good long time after the swallow, with a bold hoppy citrus bite left to linger on the taste buds for a while longer.

Mouthfeel was a step or two above light in body and distinctively dry in texture with an almost medium carbonation.

Overall this is an exceptionally put together IPA. It possesses all the bitterness a hop lover craves, along with a nice fruity maltiness. This ultimately creates the perfect balance of flavors, creating a superb drinking experience...

12oz brown glass twist-top squatty bottle. Neck stamped BB 01-14-10.

Quick review:
Beautiful golden amber and hazy. Thin sticky bone-white head. Nose is full of mixed sour citrus and some sticky pine resin. Palate has a strong bitterness but that doesn't close out all of the flavors. Light malt presence and accentuated with tons of orange and lime flavor plus bitter pine nettles.

Notes: A seriously tasty single IPA. Highly recommend.

Orange in color with a thick off-white head. Also, some yeast floating around in the brew. Not much lacing on the glass.

Bitter hop aroma of pine and citrus lure me in for a sip.

Hops are robust, citrusy, soapy and delicious. Just a touch of caramel sweetness in the malt. Surprisingly smooth for an IPA, the flavors are well blended.

Sturdy medium-body and adequately carbonated, drying on the palate.

A hop-lover's dream. Very drinkable and balanced despite the tons of flavor.

I bought a single bottle of this as part of a M&M 6-pack from Binny’s in Downer’s Grove, IL for $9.99 in Early 2012.

Pours a cloudy, copper color with a thick, fluffy head. Lacing clings to the side of the glass as you take in a mild scent of bitter hops. The taste is rather bold and bitter. Texture is smooth and very drinkable. Full of citrus, wheat, and yeast. Carbonation continues to shoot up during the drinking process. A very well made beer.

Got this as an extra in a trade with stephens101. Thanks Lane!

Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Big, fluffy, off-white (a little peachy) head explodes from cloudy, honey-colored body. (Actually had to suck off some of the head to prevent an overflow.) Head descends slowly, maintaining it's soft, pillowy look all the way down. Blanket-like lacing.

Smell: Thick layer of head and mild head cold are preventing me from getting a good whiff. Gimme a sec.... bread dough, grapefruit, lemon, and oily hops... melon, cantelope... [SNORT] and grass and wood. Smells quite pleasant.

Taste: This tastes familiar, kinda like a maltier (and probably bitterer) FW Pale 31. Yeah, I think that is it. Maybe they use the same hops? Very piney and grassy with a good dosage of lemon. Dry cracker-like malts form a sturdy backbone. Bitterness builds throughout the sesh (then again, maybe I'm just drinking this too fast). Pale 31 is a staple in the fridge around here. You're OK in my book, Mr. Single-Wide.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation needs to chill out a bit, but other than that I'm a fan. Oily feel; coats the mouth well. Becomes foamy with any sort of swish. Bitterness hangs around for a while. I'm diggin' the extra malts (comparing this to Pale 31 once again); nice balance.

Drinkability: That was pretty cool. This beer mimicked one of my favorite pale ales, and then outdid it. I know of many tastier IPAs out there, but this one struck a chord with me. I could surely sip on it for a long while. My biggest gripe is that the carbonation was a tad too high, but otherwise this hit the spot.

A) Copper in color. Some chill haze - oops. Pours with a large and think head. Settles into big bubble lacing.
S) Cascade hop aroma - orange, just a touch of sweetness - maybe some caramel. Definitely earthy.
T) Very little malty sweetness. Heavier on the hoppiness. Hop bit in the end. Lingering hoppiness in the aftertaste.
M) Fizzy. Crisp. Some creaminess in the finish. Medium bodied.
D) Very delicious. Would have liked to see just a bit more balance between malty sweetness and hop bite.
