4.55/5 rDev +12.3%
A - Amazingly special. Immediately on pouring into pint glass small bubbly foam rose, threatening to overflow. Visible beer depth was just 1/2 inch, topped with foam of 4 inches. This beer requires patience before you can fast it. (Perhaps my glass should have been a lower temperature?)
S - To me it the rye smell was first very strong, too strong. This time my patience resulted in a smoother and more appealing and enticing smell.
T - Very smooth but still fulfilling. Boulevard's rating of 65 IBU is just right.
M - Again, a fine mix of a good amount of smoothness with bitterness.
O - A fine experience. Neither dull nor overpowering. For me the best part is how it changes to become better. An excellent rye.
I highly recommend it.

A: Black with a huge, steady brown head; good lacing
S: Tropical fruits explode as the cork comes out: pineapple, mango, grapefruit and then comes the spicy bready malts--man, this beer smells amazing
T: Tropical hop forward and those flavors then blend so well with the spicy rye--such a nice testament to how a beer can be hoppy and yet balanced; some alcohol becomes evident in the finish
F: Creamy and yet sticky; this is a nice feeling beer; such good texture from start to finish
O: A really nice beer; such a great example of what rye can add to a beer
