Pours a hazy gold with a fluffy, buoyant, voluminous creamy head that leaves some sticky lace behind. Nose is floral, citrusy fruit, and piney hops with some soft caramel. Taste is mostly bitter, with a light growing sweetness. A lot of flavor packed in there, really bursts. Palate is vibrant, powerful, medium to full bodied, refreshing with a lengthy finish. This is a well crafted IPA. Will seek again, nicely done.

Bottle from Hilton st. Louis. Pouts orange with a thin white head. Big grass notes on the nose. The grass continues on the nose with a citrus vibe. Finish clean. One of the better IPAs not from California.

Originally reviewed: 4/9/09. Bottle received from monsterfat (BA) in a recent trade. Thanks! Pours a deep gold with a massive white, foamy head on top, that retained as good as any Ive seen. A nice inch-width head throughout the entire drink. Some nice sticky globs on the side. Rings absent. Smelled of nice piney hops. Some spiciness was also noted. Mouthfeel was crisp yet slightly wet. Drinkability was decent. Flavor was a decent balance of bisuity malts and a nice hoppy bitter bite. I was a little underwhelmed though. Nothing that spectacular, but decent. No citrus player noted. Finished a tad spicy. Not a bad beer. Glad I got to try it.

I love Boulevards style. Transparent copper with a thick white head. Hoppy, but I find it beautifully balanced with plenty of malt. Some pineapple and tropical fruit pokes through. Long finish.

Bottle. Caramel malt and pineapple/grapefruit hops aroma. Hazy golden with a moderate white head. Citrus, grapefruit, grassy hops and light wheat malt flavor. Light to medium body and carbonation. Solid, but Id like it even better if it were a little more malt forward.

I came across this last summer. Its a good camp fire brew or a good fresh cut grass beer.

Bricktop86 (807) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - APR 7, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2012 Pours yellow and slightly cloudy with a lot of fluffy white head. Smells quite hoppy, with plenty of pine and citrus. Taste follows the smell, a dry finishing hoppy and pine/citrus flavor, light malts.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Re-rate June 14, 2012 after having this again at a special Boulevard beer event at Caldones in Joplin: This beer has an enormous head, unequivocally foamy and thick. Upon a fast pour, the head takes up around two finger lengths with the golden colored bottom barely distinguishable. It nonetheless dissipates fairly quickly to about a finger length, where it lingers nicely for several minutes, leaving a lot of lacing. The scent, meanwhile, is surprisingly mild for an IPA with citrus/pine most evident. It gives an idea that this wont be among the more "astonishing" IPAs, but more of a sessionable kind. The first sip or two always remind me of the resinous Ranger IPA initially, but the Boulevard Single Wide IPA ends up being less intense in pine bitterness, excelling more with other citrus hops. Its also a malt affair, particularly in the final flavors (not that there is no bitterness whatsoever in the end notes - no one would be confused about this being an IPA - just that the malt really stands out as well - very well-balanced). Id classify this as medium-bodied. The ABV is relatively low for an IPA (5.7%), which contributes to its sessionability as much as its overall taste profile does. Really love this one - can drink this easily while still enjoying the hop notes. UPDATE: Some recent batches of this havent been quite as strong. Downrating slightly. ANOTHER UPDATE: Keeps getting weaker. Now just another good IPA.

Honestly, I think this is better than the double wide and much more sessionable. This was my go-to beer at the bottleneck in Lawrence. A bit watery with a light medium body. The hops were on the discreet side, but still a fan favorite.

Patrickctenchi (6324) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Yellow-orange...tightly foamed, tall white head (2 pours into tulip) Aroma is very hoppy, grapefruit, pine. Taste is surprisingly dull compared to scent. plenty of hop bitter....but no "sting". Like drinking bitter flowers. Really disappointing, watery and run of the mill....
