Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

It's been far too long since I've had some Boulevard goodness. This stuff pours a clear brass topped by two fingers of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light pine resin, light grapefruit zest, and an evanescent twinge of lime. Did I mention things were mild,light, et cetera? The taste holds notes of pine needles, grapefruit rind, powerhouse grass, and mild honey. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a generally fluid feel. Overall, a solid IPA, but one that doesn't really impress, either. It's a tasty bit, but nothing I'd likely go out of my way to get again.

Bottle split with Hab11

A: Bottle pours into the glass a very hazy straw yellow color with a one finger head and lots of carbonation. This is the perfect way to start a warm Spring afternoon in the sunshine. Lots of haze and lingering, active fizziness.

S: Very hop forward. delicious smells come right out of the glass. Notes of citrus and passion fruit, lots of passion fruit. Smells like a glass of juice sitting in front of me. Can't wait to try it.

T: Balance is the best word I can use to describe this. Very refreshing brew. Lots of bitterness but not overpowering at all. Fruity. Bigger sips reveal lots of grapefruit. Can't find the ABV on the bottle; doesn't seem light but is very sessionable. Could drink this all day long.

M: Great carbonation. Definitely not too thin, not too heavy, fairly creamy. Great mouthfeel overall. Again, lots of balance in this beer.

Overall: Great brew to start off the day. Great sessionable beer that I am glad Boulevard decided to let the greater public have a try. Great balance on a pretty good beer. Would definitely drink again and would love to see Boulevard release into a more regular rotation with greater availability.

Reviewed w/ThreeLions.
Golden amber honey color, unfiltered and cloudy. Pine notes with a lemon zest undertone. Slight smell if citrus somewhere between orange and pink grapefruit.
Taste: the lemon and citrus comes through with the pine taste being a lesser taste. Also has a light simple syrup taste that comes through in the end.
Mouthfeel: Effervescent springs to life with the initial taste and finishes smooth and slightly creamy.
Overall maybe the best mass produced IPA I've had. I wish boulevard would make this as a staple instead of just in a sample pack.

Pours nice bright golden yellow. Head stays around forever and a day.

Nose is full of hop, but not overwhelming. Earthy, but nice.

Mostly hop in flavor. Not tons of malt backbone, but fair. Good, clean. Again , not big, but tasty.

Mouthfeel is light, but perfect for the style.

Overall, good clean, unobtrusive.
