look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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

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.

Poured from the bottle into a Dogfish Ale house glass.

A faint apricot amber, with hints of orange color, quite a bit hazy and a little dull. Head forms real nice and evenly with light tan color, almost white, and easily four fingers deep. Clumps with big aggressive chunks and lacing. Not too bad.

Nose is store brought grapefruit juice hop angle. Quite wet smelling, with a light airy sense. Not sweet or big, but pretty solid fruit hop feeling. A little bit of toasty bread and grains kick in also.

Palate hits with quite a bit of wet body. Mid palate doesn't bring much flavor, however on the swallow is where all the notes hit. Instant peeled grapefruit and skin, with a little bit of minor caramel sensations. Quite a big front tip tongue little tiny fizz sting. Palate though is really fleeting, with all the senses hitting in the back. Wet body doesn't quite let it carry much.

Overall it's very light and drinkable, but this just doesn't remind me of the good stuff that Boulevard does, this is one of their weaker creations I think.
