Pale straw gold in color. Excellent clarity. Inch thick head of foam. Grape fruit like hop aroma is fairly intense. The flavor definitely matches the aroma. Like biting into a grapefruit. Fresh hop flavor and intensely bitter. Mouthfeel is a bit thick and slightly chalky. Nothing amazing.

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!

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.

Just being from the midwest, I found though comedy in the title of the beer - "mid-coast IPA." And yes, at 100 IBU's it is pretty nervy for a bunch of Kansas City kids.

The appearance is pretty spot on - golden yellow, white frothy head that's about a half an inch thick, dissipates slowly, and maintains its layer throughout the beer.

The nose is wonderful- young grapefruit, hops, green apple peel

Taste- 100 Ibu's of tasty. I've yet to overcome the dominating flavor of hops, but there's a touch of malt in there as well.

Overall, I'd buy this in a 6-pack. It's more straightforward than their 80-acre offering (which is also awesome) and I could find myself enjoying these over and over again. Definite recommend.

personal note: It came in a sample 12 pack, and it's the best sampler pack I've had to date.
