I'm really liking this sampler pack from Boulevard Brewing Co. Each beer in it seems to be a dead on example of the style it represents. And a very well done version at that. Within the guidelines but not overboard and certainly not boring. Very well done. I think this would be a great sampler pack to show someone, 'this is a pale ale, this is an IPA'.
A - real nice sustaining head that leaves some nice lacing. Light gold color.
S - Nice lemony hop smell. Full profile of hop range too it seems, bitter, flavor and aroma well represented. Sweet malt in the background.
T - Very nice and balanced. Good amount of hops and bitterness but very drinkable.
M - foamy carbonation, clean finish
D - Quite drinkable! Plenty of interest and not too tongue splitting to be too much. Best with some food if you want more than one.

3.66/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Darker yellow to copper in color with 1 1/2 fingers of white rocky foam that reduces but leaves a thin froth covering the top of the beer. Dark but is transparent and clear. Nice carbonation rinsing up in the glass.
Smell: Dank wet pine needles, citrus and herbal aromas
Taste: First thing you get are the hops and they medium to medium high in your mouth. Latter the beer warms a little bit the malt notes catch up and they balance this beer nicely.
Mouth Feel: Mdium bodied and dry with a crisp long finish.
Overall: This is a preferred style for me and this particular beer is a good representation of the style. Crisp and dry makes it a perfect beer to just kick back and enjoy. This isn't a beer for "slammin' "after working in the sun all afternoon. Instead save it for later when it is relaxing time.
