750ml bottle. no freshness or bottled date, but it says batch number D8144.
a- wonderful 2-finger beige head in the chalice on this dark amber orange IPA. looks very delicious.
s- smell of sweet & tart baked apples, grapefruit, pine, spice, caramel malts. a really fruity overall hop smell that I can really get into. nice!
t- Wow! This is different. A strong IPA (not DIPA) that isn't completely in my face with hops! This really tastes a lot like the smell. It's VERY fruity, more towards tart apples than citrus/grapefuit, but there's a little of everything. Really strong brown sugar & caramel character with a little bit of spice & bread. Malt character almost brings to mind some of the maltier Belgian Dubbels. A minor alcohol burn in the finish with some pine/grapefruit and caramel to linger. Really unique. This may be the sweetest IPA I've ever tasted. A very, very delicious non-hop-bomb. I love it.
m- this sort of drinks like a belgian abbey ale. a nice, hearty body. could use maybe a little more carbonation.
this is a beer that's not gonna blow out your taste buds. It's got a really nice sweetness about it bordering on addictive for me, but that's how I often like it. Just a phenomenal unique take on the style by Boulevard. Worth a try--do not come into it expecting a hop bomb! This is something else entirely.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Pours red amber with white head. Smells of citrus hops nice welcome. Tastes of citrus with very nice sweet malt, but still enough hop bite that it dominates. Beer is medium bodied slightly heavily carbonated. Overall a very good beer.
