12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with big yeastie floaters and a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is bready malts and some fruit and floral hops.

The flavor is sweet malts with some citrus and a good sized floral, slightly resiny, hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, a decent bitter IPA.

Poured from a bottle out of their sample 12 pack...poured into a snifter. Cotton candy white, heavy foam head. A sticky, long lasting lace. Slightly hazy, light golden raw honey on the eyes.

The nose...Pine, grapefruit, lemon...the usual suspects for an IPA.

First drink...heavy carbonation combined with a nice creamy hop hit. The middle is very balanced, creamy sweet honey blends with the sweet and sour of the citrus making an incredibly smooth center. Then the bang...pine and grapefruit rind along with the hoppy 104IBUs creates a dry, clean and crisp finish...a slight bitter lingers on the tongue. It's says it is at 5.6% but I've only drank half my beer and it seems much more?

I'm really surprised at how good this is, wasn't expecting much but am pleasantly surprised. Great hoppy IPA that they call a tasting room only?...I'd bet the farm that this ends up becoming a regular Boulevard offering. Would definitely buy this in a six if they offered.

Got in part of a 12 pack mixer.

A&S: Spider-web lacing, good head retention. Lively, translucent hazy yellow colored beer. Aroma isn't super pungent but consists of primarily lemon citrus with some grapefruit tones.

T&M: hop-heavy but not overwhelming. Mostly citrus hops with a bit of tropical fruit tones. Slight presence malty (almost rye-like) background. Mildly bitter semi-dry finish. Crisp feel, but not shape.

Overall: It was the best of the 12-pack, but nothing mind blowing. Better than I anticipated. Very drinkable.

Smell
Right off the bat I got huge citrus smells ( grapefruit, mango, orange)
and a lot of pine. It's amazing! A lot of hoppyness to it very nice aromas

Taste
Getting a lot of citrus flavor especially the grapefruit and a lot of pine a little bitter but the ibu's is 104 I believe so it's not to bad for that

Mouth
Medium thickness with a dry finish, with good amount of carbonation.

Overall
I really enjoyed this beer with its bold flavors, not a session beer as its filling to me

Enjoy
