4.39/5  rDev +13.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Enjoyed out of a brown 750 mL bottle marked batch number RB13249-1, best by date of 06-2014. Poured into the Speigelau special IPA glass.

Appearance - Body is a mix of brass and gold highlights, completely translucent allowing me to see the steady steam of carbonation bubbles rising up from the laser etching on the bottom of the glass. The head is a pillowy froth about three fingers thick the color of bone. The head slowly dissipates to a film about a quarter-finger thick across the entire surface of the beer, which grows into sticky lacing creeping up the side of the glass like ivy. The lacing sticks around, like leopard print mottling.

Smell - Witbier spiciness from coriander and orange peel mixes with more herbal notes and lemongrass from the hops. Elements of grapefruit and citrus zest as well as an underlying bed of fruity phenols from the Belgian yeast.

Taste - Here, the witbier characteristics take a back seat to the more herbal American hop profiles. Rather than tasting coriander, it seems to impart a pastry-like quality to the other flavors. Sounds weird, but surprisingly enough it really works quite well. Lingering baby and dandelion green bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied and carbonation on the heavy side of moderate, which is pretty typical for these Boulevard 750s. Refreshing and dry finish.

Overall, a wonderful beer and perhaps my favorite take on the fledgling "white IPA" style. Can't go wrong with the original, I suppose. I truly hope that Reboot is a beer that Boulevard decides to produce annually in their Smokestack series, much like Grainstorm, Harvest Dance, and Reverb. Very tasty.

3.74/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: poured out of a 750 ml bottle, Reboot has a pleasant nectarine orange hue to it. Cloudy with at least and inch of head. Lacing is not visible.

Smell: a spicy herbal nose, predominantly orange peel and hints of banana and lemongrass.

Taste: starts out tasting like a witbier, it has a spicy honey taste up front with a malty orange wheat taste to it. Maybe a small hint of some light bread and lemongrass in there. The hops are hidden but definitely present near the end, a nice smooth but slightly spicy finish to it.

Mouth feel, medium bodied, light carbonation.

Overall: this is an interesting and fairly complex beer! Definitely ba different brew. Pretty easy to drink, I like the Belgian wheat style to it, but it has a nice smooth hoppy finish to it.

Pours a cloudy orange-yellow with slight head retention. The nose is a bit yeasty with a hint of citra hops and orange peel. It drinks fairly smooth and is yeasty on the tongue. It finishes with bite thanks to a blend of citrusy hops and orange notes. As it warms the orange becomes more prominent in the flavor. As is typical of white IPAs, it's fairly smooth and drinkable even with the presence of hops.

One of the better white IPAs I've had, though it should be noted I don't favor the style in general.
