2.98/5 rDev -20.3%
Murky light amber with a solid soapy white foam sheet. Smells of grassy hops and an ESB style malt background. Flavor is bitter with grass, soil and bitter hops. Pretty euro IPA stylization if you ask me. Medium bodied with really hi carb, very foamy. Fine beer, easy drinking, but nothing above the rest.

Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a Duvel tulip. Best by 08/17/12 on bottle neck. Received from my loving parents.
A: Slightly orangish golden with 1-2 finger off-white head with good retention and a nice curtain of lacing around the top of the glass.
S: A very fresh wet hop aroma overall that is slightly dank but very floral and herbal with a nice zinger of citrus. The pale maltiness carries a small amount of caramel sweetness.
T: Full of flavor with a lot of long-lasting bitterness that holds through the citrus, pine, and floral hops. The herbal character is a lot less pronounced, and there is no grassiness despite a probable big dry-hop. The caramel in the aroma has the same understated presence in the flavor which adds some crispness as it counters the hops.
M: The carbonation is a bit too high on this beer, but otherwise the solid medium body and long aftertaste still satisfies.
O: A very good core IPA from Boulevard. My family brought me quite a few of their offerings that I look forward to in the coming weeks.

This beer pours a clear golden amber color with two fingers of foamy white head that retains amazingly and leaves a good amount of lacing. The aroma is strong with citrus hop notes. The flavor starts with the citrusy hops and then becomes strongly bitter and finishes with a hint of bready malt. The mouthfeel is overcarbonated and leaves a very lingering bitterness. Overall a good ipa.

Pours a clear yellow amber color with a finger of white head. Lots of white lace.
The nose is lightly hopped with a mix of subtle seet malts. Light grassy hops.
The taste is also light and refreshing. Grassy hops meet seet malt in a conservative, tidy motion.
Light, crisp, and refreshing. Light-bodied
Overall, decent a good for a summer day, just not too bold or memorable.

Bottle from a mixed six at Happy Harry's Grand Forks, North. BB 6/30/12. Poured into a Duvel tulip at ~4C
A: The bottle opens with a noticeable "Pssht!" and a ton of head (2-3 fingers) pours atop a hazy copper orange brew.
S: A balanced nose, initially with sweet carmael malts then a bit of American fruity hop notes. The hop nose is a little light here.
T: The body has a subtle sweetness with some light hop flavours and a bit of a bitter bite. Way too subdued for an American IPA in 2012. Maybe I'm becoming immune to subtler hopped IPAs, but this is decent, but reminds me more of SN Pale or Summit EPA.
M: Biting carbonation and a bit of building bitterness.
O: A nice enough beer, but it sure doesn't come across as a modern IPA. At 5.7% it's at the lower end of the spectrum, and it certainly comes off as a pale ale to my palate.

an ipa on the lighter side. nose is fresh fruity hops, with a resiny aroma. sweet like honey. flavor is very light and delicate, not at all what i was expecting from this american ipa. the hops are refreshingly tart, but not bitter. malt profile is very light, crystal to pale on the flavor spectrum, and very well balanced. feel is super light for the style, but pushing medium bodied. well carbonated but not explosively so. a great brew to enjoy outside in the spring. very fresh flavors went well with a couple of beer brats on the grill. very sessionable and may become a staple in my fridge this season.

12oz bottle poured into my Terrapin glass. It poured slightly hazy and amber in color with a thick, frothy head to it. It left some thick, rocky looking lacing on the edges of the glass as I drank it as well.
The aroma has a citrusy hoppiness to it with some strong notes of grapefruit and orange peel to it. I get a some bready malts playing a support role as well.
The taste also shows a lot of grapefruit like citrus to it with a little bit of a brighter orange like flavor. I get a little more of a sweet, bready, maltiness to it as well.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being average. Overall it was a pretty good beer, but not a really outstanding one of the style. Pretty drinkable and nicely flavored overall though.
