Boulevard Single-Wide IPA Review

The next beer in the Boulevard Brewing Sampler is their Single-Wide IPA, which has an ABV of 5.7%. According to the description, it was originally inspired by one of their Limited Release Smokestack Series Beers: Double-Wide IPA; which I have had before

Single-Wide pours a hazy wet straw yellow color. The head is very foamy, has very good retention and leaves behind some really nice lacing.

The aroma has some citrus & piney hop notes, along with pale malts, caramel and yeasts. The flavor has some moderate citrus hops upfront with a solid malty backbone, some yeasts and biscuit notes.

The body is fairly light and the carbonation is rather mild so this is pretty easy to drink.

As an IPA, it isn't too impressive but it's sessionable and drinkable. If you're looking for a hop fix, this might not be what you're looking for but if you're looking for something drinkable or are looking to finish filling your Mix-A-Six then it's worth checking out.

Boulevard Single-Wide IPA - 8/10
