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

A - Pours a bright orangish yellow with a 2 finger white head. Excellent retention with lots of bubbles and carbination

S - Very heavy on the pine with a solid malty backbone. Shlight citrus aromas as well

T - Again, very heavy on the pine. Seems to have a grassy flavor as well. Undertones of apples. Malts a definately present.

M - Thick and creamy. Not as bitter as one might think at 100 IBU. Nicely balanced with a slight warming effect from the ABV

O - Another great beer from Boulevard. Great flavor. NOT a sessionable beer. Pretty stout

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

Poured from a bottle with a best by date of 4/26/14, into a pub glass.
Appearance - a hazy, though bubbly gold. A thick, foamy, white head that leaves adequate lacing.
Smell- a second try of this has proven to have a better nose! Much more citrus up front and hints of grass.
Taste - hop forward, but with a nice malt balance!
Feel - good hop bitterness and the complexity of the malt and yeast make this a solid beer!
Overall - a really good IPA offering (especially for the price) from Boulevard!

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

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: 4.75 | 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.

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.

Another thanks to my brother and his friend, without whom I would not be enjoying this beer. The bottle says "Best by 4/26/14"

It pours a finger of nearly white head over a straw yellow body. Makes a good attempt at lacing.

Mild citrus and flowers greet the nostrils. A little pine really fleshes it out.

Starts off with a grainy taste that quickly finds pine. The pine keeps going through the end and meets up with grapefruit, orange peel and flowers.

Medium bodied. It leaves quite a bit of residue on the back of the tongue. Dry finish, as is expected.
