Was not super impressed by this IPA. It Pours a light brown with a thin tan head. The nose is quite sweet with some floral hops in there as well. The taste is also on the sweet side needing more bitter hops to bring it together. Medium body is a bit thin. Not a bad brew, just not my idea of an IPA.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a hazy muted peach-amber color. A frothy foamy white head has great retention and sheets of sticky lacing coat the glass. The nose is sweet apricot, muted caramel malt, and piny hops. The taste is a good shadow of the aroma with sweet malts coming before a nice blend of black pepper, apricot fruitiness, and piny grapefruit rinds. A nice medium and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, just a delicious well-balanced beer.

Consumed 10/13/11

Appearance: Slightly hazy, light golden orange, ridiculous head - huge, sticky, fluffy, leaves tons of lacing

Smell: Somewhat mild, but not bad - grapefruit, some pine, definitely floral - the malt profile is interesting - bready, wheaty, but also very pale

Taste: Nicely balanced - some grapefruit flesh, some citrus zest, some pine, some herbal qualities - the malts are notably unique - pale, grainy, and the wheat is a nice touch - slightly spicy and bready, but doesn't scream "wheat" - bitter, but definitely not extreme - in fact, definitely on the mild side

Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp and dry, light-medium body, highly carbonated but not unpleasantly so

Overall: Somewhat unique, good

The addition of wheat to the grain bill separates this beer from the pack. While the hop profile is good, it's definitely nothing special. Fortunately, this beer has balance, and it helps. It's definitely worth a try.

Got this as a fine extra from bort11. Thanks, Tim!

A-A West Coast IPA-style golden, with a fluffy white head that has great retention. Lots of fine bubble carbonation, even ten minutes after the pour.

S-Nice burst of citrus aroma. Grapefruit blending into lemon.

T-Very nice taste. A bit of malt sweetness is quickly overpowered by bitter grapefruit hops, which flows all the wat through the finish.

M-Moderately overcarbonated, as you would suspect by looking at it, but still pleasantly medium bodied with lingering bitterness.

D-Lots of flavor for the ABV, which is a bit on the low side for the style. Very nice.

on draft at the stable

poured a bright light copper with fluffy white head and incredible lacing.

smell was citrus and dry, slight hidden malt

taste was dry, very dry, with bitter hop flavor from the swish around the mouth through the finish. light malts through out.

this was slightly carbonated a little too much for me. this added to the dryness overall by giving it some bite

overall, not bad. there was a ton of hype on it so i expected a hop bomb but it was more subtle than what i was hoping for. i will need to check out the bottled version. overall, good stuff.

Pours a dense two fingers of light tan to eggshell white foam, all microfoam, starts to dimple almost immediately, the lacing is mostly broad sheets and it tends to slide down the glass sides with ease. Dark coppery orange colored liquid with a few random beads of big, fat bubbles, yellower along the rims. The nose has burnt pizza crust, lemon and white grapefruit zest, salt and pepper, pine cone, malted milk balls, peach to apricot fruit, while it has power it has more restraint as if it strives to be a literal textbook exemplar of an American IPA. Light to medium-bodied, the carbonation pushes it up towards the roof of your mouth which relieves a good deal of bitterness from the grassy hops, pine and general leafiness. More floral here and the white grapefruit is drier and more pith. Yeast and lees, doughy in that dry way. The peach, apricot jazzed up by pineapple, nectarine and mango nuances. The maltiness woven into the whole, doesn’t really stick out on its own. Stays well carbonated through the finish, smooth while desiring your attention. Again, going for the “classic” character and more or less succeeds.

One of the bars on the loop in St Louis had multiple boulevard beers on tap for three buck a pop! Great stuff!

Lightly orange and slightly cloudy, the pour didn't leave much head but some decent lacing was present.

Smelled and tasted nicely hoppy, crisp and tangy, with an ample malt balance, and some nice floral and citrus notes. The body was medium and obviously the beer was quite fresh.

Overall just about anything boulevard is bound to be good, and I liked this one on tap more than I do in the bottles.
