A-Pours a hazy, pale golden color with an insanely thick white head. Nice retention throughout with minimal lacing. The color of the beer was unimpressive.

S-Freshly baked bread. The yeast is pronounced well in the nose. Citrusy hops in the back of the nose, but the yeast overpowers that.

T-Semi-bitter citrus fruits balanced well with yeast and a semi-malty finish.

MF-Carbonated and a touch too fizzy, but it's refreshing

O-A very good IPA. Not the best, but complex and refreshing. Boulevard makes fantastic brews.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a very slightly hazy light gold with a rocky one finger white head. Really good head retention and chunks of lacing clinging to the sides of the glass.

Aroma has a very lemony and herbal quality with a little bit of orange, peach, and grapefruit thrown in. Maybe a touch of ginger. There is a very light citrusy quality overall to the hops. Really no malt is evident in the aroma.

The flavor continues the lemon/herbal characteristics. There is quite a bit of grass present as well similar to what you would find in a german pils but it compliments the citrus flavor quite nicely. There is a little bit of caramel from the malt along with some lighter bread that again reminds me of a pilsner. Moderate bitterness and a moderately sticky finish.

Overall, this is a very refreshing beer that has quite a bit of flavor and the hop profile is fairly unique; it is not like other IPA's I have had. A pleasant, easy drinking beer that would be one to keep in the fridge.

A- Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Speiglau IPA glass. Pours a cloudy dark straw color. Huge 3 finger head that is off white. Fair amount of retention. Be careful when pouring Boulevard beers. Always seem to overflow in my experience.

S- Floral and citrus hops are the big leaders of the nose with this one. Grapefruit, lemon zest, fruity. Yeast aroma as well. Not a complex hop profile, but a strong one none the less. Not detecting much malt backbone. Certainly lets you know you have an ipa on your hands.

T- Big floral and citrus flavors here as well. Intense floral hop presence, but not overly bitter. Wet tasting from the hop oil. Hops eventually give way to a subtle pale malt presence. Touch of caramel makes its way. Warm, alcohol finish was surprising from the low ABV. As usual with what seems to be all Boulevard beers, the wheat flavor makes an appearance. Also detecting some yeast notes. I prefer a little more earthy hop notes with my IPAs, but this was still a very nice tasting beer. I like whats going on here.

M- Smooth, drinkable. Light to mid body. Slightly wet and oily. Over-carbonation was the biggest problem here. It was hard to look past.

O- A really nice brew. Not a spectacular one that I would insist everyone must try, but nice. Not real complex, but decent balance, robust floral and citrus hops, and good drinkability to put a few of these away if your are in an establishment with few good craft brew options.

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect Pint Glass

Appearance: high carbonation, orange-gold in color, 3/4 inch head, clear

Smell: citrus hops--oranges and lemons

Taste: citrus--tangerine orange, grapefruit with some pine hops and caramel

Mouthfeel: light bodied, high carbonation, bitter with some sweetness in the middle and a more bitter/dry end--bitter but never mouth puckeringly so

Overall: Bitter and clean. This would be an IPA that I would reach for if I wanted an IPA. A nice sipper.
