Picked this up from my local growler store

Pours a dark amber color with little to no head but leaves a nice white lace on top. It smells of citrus fruits: grapefruit, orange, lemon with floral undertones. A very nice smell. It tastes just like it smells. Fruity with herbal tones on the finish. Definitely a slight bitterness on the back from the hops. The mouthfeel is modest for an IPA. Not much bite but enough to be noticed. It's not overly carbonated which is good. Ocerall a solid beer. One of the better IPAs i've had.

Had on tap at the Corner Slice here in GSO tonight.Poured into a standard pint glass a lightly hazed medium golden with a thinner but well sustained white head atop.Aromas are yeasty but not very phenolic with lemon oils and herbal notes.Citrusy and bright on the palate with yeasty undertones with some spice,more herbal hops come around in the finish.A nice well rounded BIPA,yeasty but not in your face with good fresh hops flavors.

3.91/5  rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, hazy, gold in color, high carbonation

Smell: pine, light citrus, and Belgian spices

Taste: sweet pineapple juice, tangerine, light piney and citrus hops, and Belgian spices.

Mouthfeel: sweet with light bitterness, medium bodied with medium carbonation

Overall: Sweet for the Belgian IPA style but full of juicy fruit hops. I love the tanginess of the pineapple and the tangerine. Boulevard does not miss with the Smokestack series and I find this to be no exception. Their excellence turns styles I would not normally reach for into beers I would get time and again.

Hazy light amber to gold in color. A finger of fine white foam on the top. Pine like hop and coriander aroma. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated and bitter. I get the hops at the front of the palate and then immediately it gets overtaken by the coriander. The intensity of the coriander dulls as the beer warms slightly.

Picked up 4 of these 750ml bottles and have tried 2 so far.

I had 3 of the original Collaboration and I liked it. But I have to say I prefer this version. I think it's because I really enjoy the slightly sweeter, less bitter, more bubblegum profile of this beer. It's still an AIPA but it's a different take vs the million other IPAs out there. I prefer my IPAs with their IBUs masked in some way and this fits the bill perfectly.

The smell and taste are very bright. Using the word "refreshing" to describe it isn't a cliché at all. The added Sage and Lemongrass make their presence known, and it's all the better for it.

There's only one knock I have on this beer... It doesn't really hit me as a fall beer. I wish it was released in May, better match for the warmer weather. :-)

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

Pours an effervescent & slightly hazed bronze with fluffy pearl colored head. Above average head retention & lacing

S: Big-time yeasty notes, graininess, white pepper, coriander & lemon peel, plus juicy-fruit

T: Phenolic notes, wet cereal, lemon zest & grapefruit up front, cloves as well. Grassyness, cloves, grapefruit & wet cereal as this warms. Finishes with lemons, grapefruit & cloves & slight juiciness & a touch of booze bite

MF: Fairly chewy, slight carbonation, decent balance

Drinks fairly easy, not one I would buy again. I find very few of these white IPAs that interesting. I like New Belgium's Accumulation a ton more & can get a sixer of that for less money

I ended up pouring this into a Boulevard tulip because that is what the back of the bottle recommended. The appearance was a nice hazy yellow to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dies at a nice pace and ends up leaving a decent amount of spiderweb lacing. The smell has a gracious amount of Belgian spices and lends a touch of clove into a somewhat tightly packed light citrusy sweetness of a tangy yet zesty and somewhat grassy lemongrass and sage of sorts. The taste is zesty, tangy, has a decent sour to tart background in it and still maintains a nice spiciness to it. There is a nice lemon and somewhat citrus aftertaste that ends up leading to a decent somewhat dry finish. On the palate, it sits fairly light and has a decent sessionable quality to it. The carbonation is there as an AIPA or witbier, but also maintains a decent smoothness about it. Overall, AIPA or witbier, its labeled as an IPA on here, to me, I see qualities of both and for the most part, this is a very good beer.
