Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a hazy muted peach-amber color. A frothy foamy white head has great retention and sheets of sticky lacing coat the glass. The nose is sweet apricot, muted caramel malt, and piny hops. The taste is a good shadow of the aroma with sweet malts coming before a nice blend of black pepper, apricot fruitiness, and piny grapefruit rinds. A nice medium and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, just a delicious well-balanced beer.

A- Hazy, golden copper massive head decent lacing.

S- Melon, citrus fruits and rinds.

T- Citrus hops, sharp, bitter, yeasty and slight wheat twang.

M- medium to light with great velvety carbonation. Typical of boulevard beers.

O- Slightly above average IPA that always seems to find its way into my fridge (available at gas stations in KC!!). And why does Boulevard always use wheat in their beers???....I love Boulevard beers especially their smoke stack series but the use of wheat in nearly all their beers is getting old. Just like that weird biscuit flavor in all New Belgium beers.

A - Golden copper, with 2 fingers of head that foamed out of the bottle as soon as I opened it! Tons of lacing. Impressive.

S - Mixture of citrus and bitterness, and some grains.

T - A well balanced brew, equal amounts hoppy and malt backbone. Very drinkable..
Biscuity, bitter aftertaste...

M - Well carbonated, crisp.

O - A very drinkable IPA. But not one to seek out in the future. A little disappointing as everything else I have had from this brewery has been beyond good...

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.
