4.4/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.

Pours a cloudy yellow/goldenrod with a thick frothy head. Citrus hop aroma, specifically orange peel. The malt takes a back seat here to let crisp citrus hops shine. Leaves a lingering “leafy” finish.
Despite boasting 100+ IBUs there isn’t a harsh hop bitterness.
It’s too bad this beer is only ¼ of a 12 pack and not a full time offering as I certainly want more!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

pours out a cloudy gold colour with an ivory head, slight in nature. some retention and some really nice lace. hop forward aroma with a biscuity malt base. lots of citric pithiness and with an equal dose of pine resin. the nose is all hops all the time. the taste profile is massive blast of bitter hops, and while i don't know if this is really over 100 IBU's, it's gotta be close because it a tongue bruiser. i like the fact that there is a solid pale malt base for the hop profile to dance upon, which gives it a sense of balance. this has all the bases covered for the hop head, although it does lean more heavily on the pine, resin, herbal, and peppery spice. it's on the dry side with a long, lingering, sturdy bitter finish. this is lighter bodied for an IPA, which i like here, complimented by a pretty coarse and tongue numbing mouthfeel. this is a drinkable, mouth puckering, quenching and bitter IPA. really nice.

overall the best thing about this may be the relative low ABV for an IPA. one could say that this is an overly aggressively hopped pale ale. high IBU's for sure. this one is highly recommended , and i wish more brewers would consider brewing a high IBU, low ABV PA/IPA.

Boulevard kills it with Mid-Coast!!

I was fortunate enough to taste this one on a brewery tour, but only got a small sample. Happy to see it part of the sample pack.

A- Clear, near translucent honey/straw color. 2 finger white head. Fantastic retention and lacing. Beautiful looking IPA.

S- Dank citrus- grapefruit, mango, peach, and pineapple. Hint of sweet, wheat malt base.

T- Bring on the hops! Fresh hop oils. The 100 plus IBUs come strong with an intense floral and fruit bouquet, but not to be outdone by an outstanding malt base that steps up to the plate with a perfectly timed rebuttal. So juicy! Subtle bitterness in the finish.

M- So refreshing and drinkable despite the intense hop level. Mid body, smooth, almost sticky.

O- Just the way I remember it from the brewery. Fantastic. An absolutely dynamite IPA, and one that I hope Boulevard continues to distribute.

Pours a hazy pale golden, with a massive clinging white head. Interesting aroma of orange peel and almost a hint of onion. Taste begins with a sharp herbal flavor, followed by a hint of table water cracker, then a huge bitter orange flavor, and a bit of pine in the huge bitter finish. Mouthfeel is good. Overall a damn fine beer, one of Boulevard's best.
