look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Golden straw. Pretty clear but has some haze (dry hop?). Effervescent with lingering white cap. Nice lacing.

Aroma: Wonderful hop aroma - citrusy and leafy, like smelling fresh hops (cascade?). Among nicest hop aroma beers I've ever had.

Taste: Expectations set by aroma are met. Great hop balance and flavor throughout the swallow. This is hop flavor, not bitterness. Leaves a bit of antiseptic in back of throat, but very pleasant. Could use a bit of malt.

Mouthfeel: Pretty dry and light.

Overall: This is a good beer ... can easily be a regular.

Had to get the sampler 12 pack.

Best before 3/4/14. Check. Shouldn't have that issue.
A: Light, transparent golden-amber body with white foamy head. Beer has sat for 20 minutes & thin foam remains.
S: Tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, & mandarin. Some floral, like orchids and blossoms.
T: F'ing delicious. Pineapple, mango, pine, floral all come together and deliver with a sweet and bittering aftertaste. Much cleaner than I expected before the pour.
M: Rather light bodied. No chewiness, a plus in my book. Bitterness does linger for a bit. Heavier body would probably enhance the whole experience.
O: A really nice suprise for hopheads. I like the mosaic and citra hops used. If they did this as a regular(4 packs), I would first inline. Good work Boulevard.

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.
