look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

12oz bottle (best by 8/21/09) poured into a Portsmouth goblet. Received in a trade.

A - Poured a brilliant clear orange with a dense, fluffy white head that had some staying power.

S - Sweet, citrusy - mostly grapefruit aromas with some spiciness. Very nice.

T - Nice and hoppy - citrus predominates in the taste, as in the aroma. Decent malt backbone, but not outstanding. Good and solid - nice.

M - Lots of carbonation - initial fizziness gives way to an underlying creamy mouthfeel. Medium body, to the style. Very good.

D - This is going down very easily. Good drinkability. A good warm weather IPA - plenty of flavor, but not very heavy feeling. Perfect for after a workout or mowing the lawn.

Second time I've tried this beer. First time I wasn't really impressed, but I'm really liking it this time around. I'd like to get some more.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a nice clear yellow gold color, one finger of soapy white head, good wall of thinner lacing.
S - Very floral, some pine, a little lemon zest, some grassy tones.
T - Crisp and bitter, very floral, a little tart malt.
M - Bitterness lingers and so does the sour taste.
O - Not the best session IPA, but a easily drinkable one.

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.

Hazed, orange brew with highlights. White head chills with big bubbles on top; lasts a while and leaves some pretty damn good lace.

The nose is very citric, with a hint of pine late. The malts are mellow, only a touch of caramel with a deep whiff. Also on the nose is a prominent ester component - like bubble gum in this case, but contributing to the fruitiness.

There's an herbal component that's also on the nose; present in the flavor as well. The body is quite light - rather drinkable but actually ratchets the complexity down a notch from the nose. The hops are prominent, with notes of lemon grass, white pepper, citric peel, and grapefruit. Far more reminiscent of a Belgian IPA than a West Coast IPA.

Body is light-medium, sharply hoppy and with a solid carbonation kick. A little sweet, but easy on the palate. Should be good sales for Boulevard; hopefully it leads some to try the Double Wide and so on. As for me, I'm not "impressed" but I find the single to be interesting and palatable.

Pours a hazy dark golden yellow.

Slight piney grassy notes with a bit of citrus and grain.

Grainy, pine, grassy hop bitterness, subtle citrus.

Light-bodied, medium carbonation, crisp, grainy.

Overall, needs some work but decent.

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.
