COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boulevard Single-Wide I.P.A. is our take on a style that originated in 18th century Great Britain. This American versionóinspired by our Smokestack Series Double-Wide I.P.A.óboasts a heady combination of six varieties of hops, some of which were employed for dry-hopping.

dark gold, a bit ugly, the head is off white but the bubbles are way to big, doesnít look great... aroma is a little blah, hops throughout, not much malt balance... the taste is too bitter, more bitter than the double wide, this is the double wide with no malt and more alcohol in the taste... stick to the double wide

12oz bottle, best by Oct 31, 2011. Served at around 45F.

Pours lightly hazy orange with a three finger foamy white head that leaves clumpy rings of lacing and holds a good cap.

Aroma is lemon and grapefruit citrus, floral and grassy, some yeast, a hint of pine. Good strength.

Flavor is lemon citrus, some orange and grapefruit, a bit of a bready malt backbone that lends some sweetness to balance against good bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a bit creamy with good carbonation.

Good, above-average IPA that Iím glad to have had the chance to try since it is not available around here.

Bottle: Unclear gold with a fuzzy white head that lasted for quite a while. Musty, eggs, fermented hop aroma with a bit of softness. The flavor is not as in your face as a West Coast IPA, but a bit smoother and more palatable. There is also some grain and a bit of some sour notes. I think this is a good summer IPA with a good refreshing hop aftertaste.

The aroma of the Single-Wide has much hops, in keeping with the IPA. Something of a pepper scent exists as well. The beer pours as a brownish-amber, with quite a lot of head. In sipping, the wheaty malt comes out as well. This isnít the boldest IPA Iíve had, but itís pretty good.

Very high carbonation and very thick off-white head. Slight haze, golden color. Hoppy nose and flavor, but not aggressive on either front. Lemony citrus which is reasonably fresh. Some fruity esters. Good malt balance. Unfortunately, hops donít pop at all, so canít rate this very high as an Am. IPA.

Clear golden with a creamy white head. Nice crisp citrus and light hoppy aroma and taste with a clean finish. Nice refreshing IPA for a warm day.

Nice light golden pour with one finger head great initial aroma that fades pretty quickly,big citrus aroma fading into a light fruit tangerine aroma some yeast.Light bodied easy drinker with a pretty tart hop bitterness grapefruity but more of a rind tart bitternes, taste some yeast light clean faint grain/carmel a faint bit of toastedness.I would have never guessed six varietys of hops,taste alot like my all centennial homebrew. This might be better balanced with a little more malt sweetness still a very decent ipa.

Light copper color. Thin head almost no lacing. Grapefruit aftertaste very noticeable. Mid range IPA as I am NOT a hop head. Not close to Three Floyds Dreadnought

12 oz Bottle. Appearance is light orange with decent, off-white head. Aroma is disappointingly weak with notes of citrus including orange and mango. Taste is similar with citrus flavors the quickly fade moving into piney hops. Balance is tipping a little more to the bitterness giving it a moderate dry finish. Palate is medium-bodied, slightly thin, and average carbonation. Not really a true IPA in my opinion and only an average APA.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2012 [Bottle] Pours slightly hazy amber with a really nice, slightly off-white head. Aroma has a lot of citrus--especially tangerine. Nice, but could be a little stronger. After warming a little, some more piney and grassy notes come out, as the citrus disappears. I liked it more when I first opened it. Taste is just a slight letdown. Not to say that it is bad, it is just more malt heavy than I was hoping for. Moderate bitterness, alcohol is noticeable, but in the background, and then just lots of barley towards the end, with bitterness still lingering when I swallow. Fairly thick mouthfeel, creamy, smooth. Finish length is decent. Could be a little dryer. Overall, an alright IPA, but just not exactly my thing, and not overly memorable. Old rating: 6/5/5/4/12 = 3.2.

Re-rate: On-tap at Old Chicago. I didnít take notes, but this was significantly better than I remembered it as being. Bumping it up a few tenths.
