Yellow colored beer, just like their hefeweizen but without the wheat haze. Aroma had a little bit of hops, non proprietary, and almost a lack of malt notes. If this has dry hopping, its very little.

Lots of bitter going on, 60 ibu level stuff, lots of carbonation, crystal malt. Wish there was more hop flavor. Sits in that level of supermarket long hop boil bitter ipa vibe. I'm pretty sure this recipe came out of the 90s. You've had some iteration of this beer many dozens of times if you've been drinking ipas for a time before the phrase new money came around.

Pours a vibrant pale orange color with a rocky white head. Aroma citrus, orange, pine. Taste follows with pine, resin, orange, orange marmalade, slight citrus and earth. Mouthfeel is thin to medium, slight oily with a touch of prickly carbonation on the front. Overall, this is a very nice ipa, definitely west coast leaning, with some english ipa character.

Clear deep gold color with off-white head. Aroma is on the malty side with some light honey notes and some floral hops. Taste is also slightly malty but overall clean and the finish has a light hop bitterness with lingering orange flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Really straightforward, old school IPA.

Clear medium amber, thick creamy long lasting head.
Aroma is nice but not prominent.
Taste is balanced but hoppy bitterness lingers on the aftertaste.
Medium slick feel, low carb.
Decent IPA but lacks the citrus bitterness that I like.

Please rename it to Pale Ale. Was so excited to see Boulevard at our local store. But pure disappointment in the end.

Appearance: Clear amber red in color, with a large, coarse and persistent white head. Thin, scattered, broken lacing adorns the glass wall.

Aroma: Piney, though not tarry hops utterly dominate the aroma. Pale malt is noticed with some effort.

Taste: The taste begins with rather pronounced pine and grapefruit rind hops, though common tar flavors are largely absent. As the taste progresses, some orange rind flavors present. Pale malts are very subdued in the presence of a strong hop wave, though they remain discernible. As the taste draws to a close, the hops rule. Finishes with a grassy, piney herbal surge that lingers on and on.

Mouth feel: Very soft and full, quite pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Very nice, a decent and drinkable example. While it is not outstanding, its certainly a good "middle of the road" beer, and one I wouldn't mind having again.

Presentation: Packaged in a short twelve ounce brown glass bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
