Boulevard Brewing Single-Wide I.P.A.

boulevard-brewing-single-wide-i-p-aFrom the Brewer – “Boulevard Single-Wide I.P.A. is our take on a style that originated in 18th century Great Britain. This American version—inspired by our Smokestack Series Double-Wide I.P.A.—boasts a heady combination of six varieties of hops, some of which were employed for dry-hopping. A golden-colored beer with a prominent flowery, grapefruit hop aroma, a moderate caramel malt flavor and a dominant hop bitterness and flavor.

Great with Cajun dishes and Spicy foods.

Boulevard-Brewing-Pop-Up-Session-I.P.A.From the Brewer – “Boulevard Pop-Up Session I.P.A. joins its big brothers Single-Wide and Double-Wide in our trailer park of hop-centric beers.

Ballast Point Sculpin IPA

Ballast-Point-Sculpin-IPAA trophy beer that’s a testament to our homebrew roots. Our Sculpin IPA is a great example of what got us into brewing in the first place. After years of experimenting, we knew hopping an ale at five separate stages would produce something special. The result ended up being this gold-medal winning IPA, whose inspired use of hops creates hints of apricot, peach, mango and lemon flavors, but still packs a bit of a sting, just like a Sculpin fish.

From the Brewer – The Sculpin IPA is a testament to our humble beginnings as Home Brew Mart. It showcases bright flavors and aromas of apricot, peach, mango & lemon. The lighter body also brings out the crispness of the hops. The Sculpin fish has poisonous spikes on its fins that can give a strong sting. Ironically, the meat from a Sculpin fish is considered some of the tastiest. Something that has a sting but tastes great; sounds like a Ballast Point India Pale Ale.

Great with Coconut Basmati Rice, Jamaican Jerk Chicken or Tropical Bread Pudding.

Yards Brewing Co. IPA

Yards-Brewing-Co.-IPA

PERFECTLY BALANCED.

From the Brewer – “Standing firmly on the east coast end of American IPAs, our India Pale Ale emphasizes balance. An insistent malt character from traditional floor-malted English barley harmonizes with a generous amount of Chinook and Amarillo hops. Fruity and aromatic, our IPA is perfectly balanced.

IPA is a robust beer that needs robust flavors. Pair with sharp cheeses like aged cheddars, grilled lamb chops, and tomato pie.

Hops: Chinook and Amarillo
Hop Bitterness (IBU’s): 62

Victory Vital IPA

Victory-Vital-IPAFrom the Brewer – “The IPA style can be a powerhouse of flavors and impressions. But what is vital to you? What commands your taste and attention? We packed our Vital IPA full of fresh, crisp and fruity notes driven by whole flower American hops and robust German malts. You’ll find it bright, delightfully aromatic and complex, leaving you with dry, spicy satisfaction. Taste Victory in these flavors Vital to your senses. Aromas of pine, tropical fruits, and stone fruits precede intense, yet refreshing flavors in this light bodied, golden IPA.

Hops: Simcoe, Citra, Chinook

Smuttynose Finestkind IPA

Smuttynose-Finestkind-IPAPortsmouth is a colonial era seaport town, so it goes to follow that sooner or later we’d brew an India Pale Ale as a tribute to those big, hoppy 19th century ales that made the long sea voyage from England’s temperate shores, ’round the Cape of Good Hope, to the sultry climes of the faraway East Indies.

But there’s another reason we brewed this beer, one that’s closer to our home and hearts. Hopheads. 

From the Brewer – In 1994 we brewed our first batch of Shoals Pale Ale, our American interpretation of the traditional British ESB (Extra Special Bitter) style. At the time, it was widely considered to be darned hoppy. However, a funny thing happened over the last decade – our Shoals Pale Ale didn’t change; beer lovers did, and we started to hear more and more: “Why don’t you guys make a really hoppy beer?”

You could say, then, that Smuttynose IPA is a physical salute to the glory of the American hop grower. The citrusy hop flavor coming from a mixture of Simcoe and Santiams is pleasantly balanced by a smooth bitterness from the Amarillo hops. The beer itself is light bodied and crisp with a golden color that will throw a slight haze, as we bottle it unfiltered. At 75 IBU’s, this is definitely not a training-wheels IPA, but is meant for hop lovers looking to satisfy their craving in a way that’s not easy to find. We think they’ll be quite pleased.

Great with Mexican, Thai, Vietnamese aged cheddar cheeses.

Hops: Bittering: Magnum Flavoring: Simcoe, Centennial, Santiam Dry hops: Amarillo
Malts: North American 2-Row, Crisp Pale Ale, C-60
Hop Bitterness (IBU’s): 75

Weyerbacher Last Chance IPA

From the Brewer – “Weyerbacher’s new Last Chance IPA is a west coast-style full-flavored hop assault delightfully lacking in balance.  We’ve added a combination of Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Columbus hops are used to produce pungent aromas of grapefruit, pine and citrus.

Now…   for the name. Why “Last Chance?” The name “Last Chance” is a nod to something held very close to the hearts of many of the employees at Weyerbacher Brewing Company:  Animal Rescue.  Weyerbacher donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every drop of Last Chance IPA to small, regional animal rescue operations.  These shelters offer dogs, cats and other pets their last chance to find a new home.”

Hops: Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Columbus
Hop Bitterness (IBU’s): 62
Alcohol by volume: 5.9%
Format: 6 Packs
