Up front honesty right here, I'm usually biased against high IBU beers (This one is 100+) and lingering bitter isn't really what I'm into right now.

But even with that, this was a good brew. All of the other surrounding characteristics are spot on and I'll admit I probably could have had another if the case wasn't out of them. It also doesn't feel like the bitter flavor continues to get stronger as you drink it either, so again, that plays in it's favor with me.

That's actually my biggest strike against this beer—you need to buy a 12 pack to get to it. I understand it helps get it out there in the market easier, but I feel bad for anyone who really likes the beer and wishes they could get more of it. :-)

Overall, a very good IPA that hop heads should really like.

Golden, slightly hazy clear and white a nice white head. Looks strong, inviting.

Big, fresh citrus, pineapple - fruity, but not overly so.

Heavily-hopped, but not in an obtrusive way. Grapefruit like the nose is up front, but the trailing bitterness is vegetative, somewhat leathery and completely unique from anything they've done or I've enjoyed in the past.

Coating and almost numbing on the tongue, dry and sticky to close. Very light carbonation lets the hops sit square on the tongue with being over-pricked.

Love this addition to the Boulevard roster - just had a Twitter convo with @Jeremy_Danner about this beer. Highly-hopped, easily drinkable, looking forward to future rotations through the series.

Tasted at the Boulevard Brewery tour tasting room on 7/5/2013. This is a new beer going into the new sampler "test" packs in the Kansas City area (yet to be released) - dubbed the Tasting Room Series. This was explained during the tour as the hoppiest beer Boulevard has ever brewed, at 104 IBUs. The bitterness was balanced very well in this beer. I can't wait to get it in a sampler pack to do a more controlled tasting and more in-depth review. It pours much lighter than the Double-Wide IPA, and has a much more earthy aroma and flavor than the piney hops of the Single- and Double-Wide IPAs. Can't wait to learn (and taste) more about this beer.
