A: First thing, super overcarbonated. Nearly shot out of the neck of the bottle. Light orange color. Good carbonation rising to the surface at a medium clip. Two fingers head with good retention.

S: Smells like an IPA. Big hops; citrus, spruce tips, spicy floral notes, fruit esters, sweet smelling biscuit malt.

T: Tastes like an IPA. Malts presence lighter in taste, taking on a more pilsner aspect. Same fruit esters. Hops are citrus, pine/spruce, maybe a hint of grapefruit. Bitterness is present without being overwhelming. It sticks to the roof of your mouth but doesn't completely dry you out.

M: Fairly crisp for the style. The malt weighs on the palate a slight amount, but the carbonation does an adequate job of lifting it up. Low in alcohol for the style, this one doesn't run to syrupy as it warms, but does round out slightly.

O: Decent IPA. A session plus IPA, perhaps. A lot of flavor and body at 5.7%.

Bottle. Light amber/orange. Slight haze. Scum like head.
Fruity hop aroma. Clementine apparent.
Resinous flavour. Grapefruit. Distant toffee malt provides some balance. Astringent finish.
Medium body and carbonation.
Tried and likely to be forgotten.

I was elated & an attendee a few years ago at the Press fete in PHL for the announcement that Boulevard B.C. beers of KC, MO would now be available in PA! My enthusiasm has not waned in the least, but I have a sufficient amount of their beers in the Bottle Backlog here at Chez Woody that I am conducting a Coup de Boule(vard) today for New Beer Sunday (Week 663). Hang on, it's going to be quite the ride!

From the bottle: "57 IBUs".

How is it that I have never reviewed this beer until now?!? It is nice to finally join the crowd. I began by Pop!ping the cap & performing a slow, gentle pour into my awaiting glass. It formed a modest head, but that was not enough to satisfy me, so I performed an in-glass swirl. This resulted in two fingers of dense, foamy, tawny head with very good retention that created nice sticky lacing as it fell. Color was solid Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was very citrusy, primarily grapefruit, but also some lemon and orange for good measure. Mmm. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was very juicy, more towards oranges than grapefruit, but with a light biscuitiness and a mellow overall tea-like quality. I really think that the earlier Extra Pale Ale was closer to an AIPA while this was closer to an APA. No big deal either way, but this beer might leave some hopheads disappointed. As for me, it is closing in on the end of another marathon NBS so this was a good penultimate (I think) beer. Finish was dry, but the bitterness was kind of low for the style. I liked it well enough, but it just lacked the kind of Oomph! that would cause me to recommend it to others.

Pours clear honey, looks filtered, with a medium head that dissipates relatively fast and leaves just spotty lace. Nose is quite mild with just a little orange and bread notes coming through. Bit disappointing so far. Taste is certainly bigger. Distinct canned mandarin orange along with a rather solid malt backbone that gives it very good balance. Bitterness is just the right amount to carry a long finish without leaving an astringent flavor. Overall, a mixed bag with a poor nose and great flavor.

I purchased this one on the shelves here in northern France.

Poured into a neutral Teku,

Color is amber/orange with a thick head with great retention and leaving some laces.

Nice aroma with notes of lychees, fresh oranges, grapefruit, biscuit and caramel malt and mild pine.

Citrusy flavor with notes of grapefruit, spices, mandarin, slight toasted malts, 3C hops, tea leaves, orange peel, lemongrass and lime.
Dry and bitter aftertaste.

Light body with appropriate carbonation.

Pretty decent American IPA, although it is not that fresh still conserved well its characteristics.

Overall this was pretty good but there are dozen better American IPAS to hunt these day's.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was somewhat hazy yet also slightly clear copper/orange body with a one finger white foamy that once it starts to die a super nice foamy lacing appears to grace the sides of the glass. The smell had subdued hops through some piney tones, slight maltiness comes out as the beer warms. The taste is sweet and smooth through the previously mentioned flavors, bittersweet aftertaste and finish. The palate is light, sessionable, carbonation is good for the style and for me. Overall, pretty nice DIPA that took me a couple of bottles to try to actually warm up to on my own.
