Please rename it to Pale Ale. Was so excited to see Boulevard at our local store. But pure disappointment in the end.

Appearance: Clear amber red in color, with a large, coarse and persistent white head. Thin, scattered, broken lacing adorns the glass wall.

Aroma: Piney, though not tarry hops utterly dominate the aroma. Pale malt is noticed with some effort.

Taste: The taste begins with rather pronounced pine and grapefruit rind hops, though common tar flavors are largely absent. As the taste progresses, some orange rind flavors present. Pale malts are very subdued in the presence of a strong hop wave, though they remain discernible. As the taste draws to a close, the hops rule. Finishes with a grassy, piney herbal surge that lingers on and on.

Mouth feel: Very soft and full, quite pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Very nice, a decent and drinkable example. While it is not outstanding, its certainly a good "middle of the road" beer, and one I wouldn't mind having again.

Presentation: Packaged in a short twelve ounce brown glass bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

I picked up a bottle of Boulevard's Single-Wide IPA in their variety pack at The Lager Mill. I've haven't had any Boulevard beers before and I'm happy to get the chance to try them now that they are in Michigan, so lets see see how it goes. 2016 Vintage. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a IPA glass.

A- Th label looks good, it had a nice design that goes with the name and it's a little eye catching. It poured a fairly clear golden amber color that took on more of a burnt orange color when held to the light with almost two fingers worth of creamy slightly off white head that died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left some nice rings of patchy lacing behind. This is a good looking beer, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness with a slightly bit of doughy yeast being the first to show up and it goes right into the hops which impart a floral and citrus rind aroma with a little bit of a spicy and slightly soapy aromas coming through in the background. Up next comes the malts which impart a pale malt, sweet malt and caramel malt aroma and towards the end comes a little more of those citrus hoppy aromas. This beer has a good aroma, it's just what I would expect from an IPA.

T- The taste seems to be pretty similar to the aroma and it starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness with the hops being the first to show up this time and they impart the same aspects that they did in the aroma, but this time more fruity flavors show up without much of that soapy hop aspect that I got in the aroma. Up next comes a slight bit of doughy yeast that leads into the malts with impart a grainy, pale malt and caramel malt like flavors with just a little bit of sweet malts in the background. On the finish there's a slightly higher amount of medium bitterness with a nice hoppy citrus rind aftertaste. This is a good tasting IPA, it's just what I expect from the style.

M- Pretty smooth, slightly refreshing, crisp on the slightly lighter side of being medium bodied with a higher amount of medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is good and it works well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a good ber and it's a good example of an IPA, it's pretty much just what I would expect from the style and all the flavors and aromas worked well together with nothing ever seeming out of place. This beer had nice drinkability, I could drink a couple of them. What I like the most about this beer is the balance, it's just where it needs to be and it's very nice for the style. What I like the least about this beer is nothing, there isn't anything that sticks out as not being as good as the other aspects. I would buy this beer on it's own and I would recommend it to any IPA fan. All in all I liked this one and I thought it was just a good example of the style with no weak points. It made for a good first Impression for Boulevard and I'm interested in trying more of their beer, it's good example of an IPA. Good job guys, this is a good IPA, keep it up.

12oz bottle (best by 12/09/15 Doh!) poured into a snifter.
Cloudy orange-ish body floats a 1/2in white head with some lacing.
Pine aroma reminiscent of mosquito repellant with citrus. Flavor matches.
Light mouthfeel, medium carbonation, and a clean finish.

Pretty good. I can only speculate that it is better before expiration. This was a Christmas gift, so it was already out of date, but I didn't look until after I tasted it.

Pours a hazy orange, with a medium-thin white head. Head retention is moderate, with decent lacing. Dank and herbal hops create an easy going, yet hoppy, aroma. The flavor profile is dank, herbal, with a tinge of citrus. Feel is medium-thin, and a bit sticky. Overall, a pleasant IPA. It's easy going for sipping, but still flavorful.

Served in a 12oz snifter.
