Poured into pint glass
A Transparent amber. Thick foam. Good retention.
S Grassy, floral, and hoppy. Sharp peppery aroma. Nice fresh smell.
T Really floral and really hoppy. Greasy and bitter. And bitter. And bitter.
M Light to medium. Foamy and a bit sticky but nothing out of style.
O I really enjoyed this. In your face hops and bitterness. And not just some unbalanced piece of shit. This really tastes good. I didn't think Boulevard had it in them. Souped up! West coast all the way.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with big yeastie floaters and a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.
The aroma is bready malts and some fruit and floral hops.
The flavor is sweet malts with some citrus and a good sized floral, slightly resiny, hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.
Overall, a decent bitter IPA.

Pale straw gold in color. Excellent clarity. Inch thick head of foam. Grape fruit like hop aroma is fairly intense. The flavor definitely matches the aroma. Like biting into a grapefruit. Fresh hop flavor and intensely bitter. Mouthfeel is a bit thick and slightly chalky. Nothing amazing.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Bottle says best by 04/26/14.
Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger white head which slowly recedes into a thinner creamy layer. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.
Smell: A bright, ripe, and juicy hop forward aroma with big hints of citrus fruits and floral hops. Upfront scent of juicy citrus hops with hints of orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, tangerine, apricot, and lemon zest. Floral hop hints along with some earthy hop hints of pine resin and grass. Soft pale malt backing with some hints of grains, cracker, biscuit, straw, and yeast. A really nice juicy aroma.
Taste: As juicy and good as it smells, a big taste of hops with some solid notes of citrus fruit. Upfront taste of ripe, juicy, and nicely bitter citrus hops with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, and lemon. Good taste of floral hops. Earthy notes of grass and pine resin. Bready pale malt backing with notes of biscuit, grains, cracker, straw, and yeast. A very hop forward and good taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very juicy and fairly chewy and bitter. Finishes dry.
Overall: A very impressive take on an American IPA. Has the big citrus taste of the West Coast style with a nice floral element. They definitely need to release this more.

The Mid-Coast IPA is AWESOME! The beer once opened left a very very nice bouquet of pine and citrus. Once poured in the glass the scent became a bit more floral with some bitterness. The beer was golden clear with nice white head that is leaving a lace. The taste starts bitter then subtly then dissapears on the finish....however, you wait a moment....then the bitterness come back....nice. The mouthfeel is medium body beer with good carbonation. Overall ANOTHER excellent offering by the Boulevard Team!

Up front honesty right here, I'm usually biased against high IBU beers (This one is 100+) and lingering bitter isn't really what I'm into right now.
But even with that, this was a good brew. All of the other surrounding characteristics are spot on and I'll admit I probably could have had another if the case wasn't out of them. It also doesn't feel like the bitter flavor continues to get stronger as you drink it either, so again, that plays in it's favor with me.
That's actually my biggest strike against this beer—you need to buy a 12 pack to get to it. I understand it helps get it out there in the market easier, but I feel bad for anyone who really likes the beer and wishes they could get more of it. :-)
Overall, a very good IPA that hop heads should really like.

Pours honey colored with 3 fingers of cream colored head. Very nice lacing & above average head retention
S: Pineapple with grapefruit, faint breadyness
T: Follows the nose, big time hop bitterness & citrus notes up front. Pineyness, grapefruit, some biscuitty malt dryness as this warms. Finishes with much grapefruit, dryness & a touch of bready sweetness
MF: Medium bodied, with soft carbonation, nice balance
One of the better AIPAs Boulevard has done, put this in the rotation please
