Outstanding IPA. It's not a stereotypical west coast IPA. It's not a British IPA. It's something different. It has an absolutely outstanding aroma of wonderful citrus, primarily grapefruit. Very bright, floral, and crisp.

Taste is slightly malty, but a light crunchy malt. No caramel crap going on. It has a pronounced bitterness but isn't an abuser of the mouth. You can actually enjoy it. Bitterness and flavor follow the grapefruit thing. It has a super fruity thing going on that would normally be crap. Here it's fantastic.

This is supreme session IPA. It's fresh, bright, flavorful. It has a very enjoyable character to it. It's by no means a challenging beer. It wasn't brewed with hot dogs, goldfish, guava, or whale blubber. It's just a nice take on a crowded field. I appreciate its candor.

Without question my never fail Go To IPA.

Big thanks to FTowne for this bottle...

A: Pours a really nice cloudy orange with about one and a half fingers of pure white head. The foam settles quickly, leaving a thin topping across the beer.

S: The nose is citrus and mild malt. Orange is the predominate note, with a touch of lemon, and some mild malt sweetness.

T: This beer starts out pretty mild, with a good balance of orange and malt. The lemon notes come on a bit stronger in the middle, and the finish increases the hoppy bitters. It's light, flavorful, and easy to drink.

M: Light bodied beer. It's wet and refreshing to start with solid flavors and decent retention. It envelopes the palate but moves off fairly quickly. The finish is smooth, but the bitter come on strong. Solid bitterness in the back end.

O: This is a really nice, easy drinking IPA. It's not my favorite in the style, but it's decent enough that I'd return to this beer if I was in the mood for one.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Liquid is straw yellow in color. There's a slight haze, but since it's so light, that it's pretty transparent. White foamy head after a reasonably hard pour and it sticks around, so you have to take your time pouring it into the glass. The head sticks around a little bit, but not much in the way of lacing, just a little around the rim.

Smell is good, a lot of citrus an and fruity flavored hops. Probably Cascade, centennial and a combination of others, but the citrus and zest is totally there. Sort of the classic American IPA aromas here, not tweeked too much.

Taste is good, on par with the smell, again not tweeked too much. Overall it's pretty mild. Slight caremel malts, but not too strong; just enough to provide some initial sweetness. After that there's a satisfactory amount of hops to make a decent enough IPA.

Mouthfeel is good. A little lighter than I expected, but I like my IPA's in the summer, so it's ok. Balance of sweetness to bitterness is good as well as a good carbonation level. Lite and crisp with a clean bitter finish. Not a bad beer at all. I'm the only one of my friends who really doesn't like Boulevard that much but this one is pretty good.
