Boulevard Single-Wide IPA

The Boulevard Brewing Company is in Kansas City, Missouri. This is their 5.7% ABV standard IPA. It is bottle-conditioned. All of their IPA's are on a mobile home trailer theme, so the regular is a single wide, their DIPA is Double-Wide, and their session IPA is Pop-Up.

The beer pours the color of apricots, or a dark honey with orange tints. There is a tall, thick, foamy head of white. The aroma is fruity, oranges, citrus, cantaloupe, touch of mango, with a tang from the yeast used for bottle conditioning. The taste follows the aromas, the fruit is a little deeper and richer than in the aroma, and the finish is fairly bitter with a quality of grapefruit astringency. It drinks smooth with a tingling carbonation. Solid.
