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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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

Pours a hazy, golden color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, slight floral hops, slight pale malt, hint of sugar, Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, slight floral hops, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and slight sugar. Overall, good appearance, but only decent aroma, body, and blend.

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!

Very nice IPA that reminds me some of Summit Saga...Oily hop aroma...pine combined with fresh citrus....thinking lemons...very fresh smelling...

The taste has a nice hop flavor to it....100 IBU's but not unbalanced....lemony citrus along with a tighter piney bitterness....this has some finishing bitterness to it but it is not unbalanced at all...

Body is light side of medium..

The more I drink the more the bitterness on the long finish becomes more pronounced in a good way...

Very solid IPA I may have to include in a big blind taster I have coming up...

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - hazy golden-tangerine color with a rocky off-white head that holds excellent retention
S - bold piny hops fill the nose with grass, pineapple, biscuity grain
T - wicked bitter but very flavorful with plenty of pine and grassy hops, but at 100ibu there's not much balance. Some biscuity grain comes through, It's a bit fruity also with some pineapple
M - medium body, moderate carbonation
O - good but a bit overkill with the bitterness. It needs more of a malty sweetness to give it more than just a one-note shot of hops. One and done for me.

Poured into SA glass and a boisterous whte head made it somewhat of a challenge to do so. More yellowish in the body and somewhat cloudy. Almost looks more like a wheat beer. Sure doesn't smell or taste like one though. A very smooth drinking IPA, except for the agrressive finish which hits the bitterness quite hard. Doesn't linger as much as would be expected for this, but it is hard nonetheless. Soft and sweet aroma with a nice hop presence. Not too strong, but pleasant nonetheless. There is a nice sweetness in the drink. Seems like a nice blending of malt and hops. Soft feel and smooth yet stingy carbonation. Nice citrus flavors.
