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

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.

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.

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
