Boulevard "Single-Wide I.P.A."
Boulevard Brewing Company - Kansas City, Missouri USA
IPA (ABV 5.7%) (IBU 57)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

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...
