Pours a hazy, golden color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, slight floral hops, slight pale malt, hint of sugar, Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, slight floral hops, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and slight sugar. Overall, good appearance, but only decent aroma, body, and blend.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

It's been far too long since I've had some Boulevard goodness. This stuff pours a clear brass topped by two fingers of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light pine resin, light grapefruit zest, and an evanescent twinge of lime. Did I mention things were mild,light, et cetera? The taste holds notes of pine needles, grapefruit rind, powerhouse grass, and mild honey. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a generally fluid feel. Overall, a solid IPA, but one that doesn't really impress, either. It's a tasty bit, but nothing I'd likely go out of my way to get again.

Bottle split with Hab11

A: Bottle pours into the glass a very hazy straw yellow color with a one finger head and lots of carbonation. This is the perfect way to start a warm Spring afternoon in the sunshine. Lots of haze and lingering, active fizziness.

S: Very hop forward. delicious smells come right out of the glass. Notes of citrus and passion fruit, lots of passion fruit. Smells like a glass of juice sitting in front of me. Can't wait to try it.

T: Balance is the best word I can use to describe this. Very refreshing brew. Lots of bitterness but not overpowering at all. Fruity. Bigger sips reveal lots of grapefruit. Can't find the ABV on the bottle; doesn't seem light but is very sessionable. Could drink this all day long.

M: Great carbonation. Definitely not too thin, not too heavy, fairly creamy. Great mouthfeel overall. Again, lots of balance in this beer.

Overall: Great brew to start off the day. Great sessionable beer that I am glad Boulevard decided to let the greater public have a try. Great balance on a pretty good beer. Would definitely drink again and would love to see Boulevard release into a more regular rotation with greater availability.

Reviewed w/ThreeLions.
Golden amber honey color, unfiltered and cloudy. Pine notes with a lemon zest undertone. Slight smell if citrus somewhere between orange and pink grapefruit.
Taste: the lemon and citrus comes through with the pine taste being a lesser taste. Also has a light simple syrup taste that comes through in the end.
Mouthfeel: Effervescent springs to life with the initial taste and finishes smooth and slightly creamy.
Overall maybe the best mass produced IPA I've had. I wish boulevard would make this as a staple instead of just in a sample pack.

Pours nice bright golden yellow. Head stays around forever and a day.

Nose is full of hop, but not overwhelming. Earthy, but nice.

Mostly hop in flavor. Not tons of malt backbone, but fair. Good, clean. Again , not big, but tasty.

Mouthfeel is light, but perfect for the style.

Overall, good clean, unobtrusive.
