3.55/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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.

Poured into SA perfect pint from 12oz bottle

A- Pours a honey color with a large white head that is very lumpy. Pretty beer.

S- Citrus, pine, and earthy hops. Not much else present.

T- Grapefruit hops and pine hops with a malt backbone. Not super biter and the taste does not linger.

M- A little thin, but good carbonation level. Easy drinker for an IPA

Overall a great sessionable IPA. Could easily drink this all day

4.17/5  rDev +11.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle (bbd 5/25/13) into a pint glass, honey colored with a huge frothy white head that lingers leaving good lacing, hazy

S: fruity bubblegum hop smells, citrus, orange, lemon, berries, grassy grains

T: I'm trying to find all of those wonderful smells in the flavor...but alas, mostly grapefruit, some pine flavors, decent malt backbone providing some sweetness, bitter finish

M: thinner with a lot of carbonation, good aftertaste

O: this beer smells fantastic, but the other characteristics didn't live up as well, not bad by any means, the other aspects just were not as special as the nose on this brew

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Pours a solid orange hue with a fizzy, huge, white head that slowly dissipated down the side of the glass leaving a good trail and ending a solid lace.

S: Nice hoppy aroma with some citrus notes.

T: Bitter brew with a good hop makeup and with some mild citrus and pine notes.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Excellent IPA - well balanced and easy drinker.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - golden orange with a huge, pillowy, soft, white head that has great retention

S - citrusy, herbal, spicy, peppery

T - light bread malt, a mellow hop character that is herbal, spicy, citrusy, and bitter

M - light bodied, well carbonated

This is an OK IPA. The flavor is nice but subdued. If the hops where more bright and forward this would probably be excellent. The mouthfeel is a bit light as well. It's thin at times. Overall, this is an easy to drink beer with decent flavor, but there are far bolder IPAs out there.
