3.9/5  rDev -1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a nonic.

A: Deep golden hue. Pours a 2 finger, frothy, white head. Pervasive rising effervescence. Craters slowly, and unevenly; but never completely, leaving a thick foam blanket on the surface of the brew. Thick, dry beer ring lacing. Effervescence continues to rise throughout.

S: Pine cones, lemon, and hay.

T: Pine nuts, lemon zest, grapefruit pith, and tonic water.

M: Crisp, hearty, and syrupy. Very bitter, with a dry finish.

D: The character will dictate a sipping experience.

Atmosphere is excellent. Golden with a thick frothy head, continually rising effervescence, and plenty of lacing. Hay, pine, and citrus... and lots of it. Bitter pine, plenty of bitter lemon and grapefruit, and seltzer water kind of feel. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

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.

12oz. Bottle
American IPA
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.

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

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.

4.08/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle out of their sample 12 pack...poured into a snifter. Cotton candy white, heavy foam head. A sticky, long lasting lace. Slightly hazy, light golden raw honey on the eyes.

The nose...Pine, grapefruit, lemon...the usual suspects for an IPA.

First drink...heavy carbonation combined with a nice creamy hop hit. The middle is very balanced, creamy sweet honey blends with the sweet and sour of the citrus making an incredibly smooth center. Then the bang...pine and grapefruit rind along with the hoppy 104IBUs creates a dry, clean and crisp finish...a slight bitter lingers on the tongue. It's says it is at 5.6% but I've only drank half my beer and it seems much more?

I'm really surprised at how good this is, wasn't expecting much but am pleasantly surprised. Great hoppy IPA that they call a tasting room only?...I'd bet the farm that this ends up becoming a regular Boulevard offering. Would definitely buy this in a six if they offered.
