2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. hazed yellow body with a white head. nose of grapefruit, pine resin, dishsoap foam and citronella candle (both the waxy petroleum base and the burning wick)... it’s like the DEET insect repellent my dad would make me use as a child, the stuff that will melt plastic if you don’t clean it off your hands. medium-light body, waxy texture, dull and lifeless carbonation with muted wheat and malt flavor soaked in grapefruit and lemon pith-like citrus. medium bitterness; medium-low acid; mostly dry. lingering waxy finish with an abrupt flattening of the body late. resinous, oily / waxy texture, difficult to enjoy, and difficult to get past the citronella candle resemblance.

Bottle. The look is clear, foamy white head, and golden in color. The smell hops, wheat, lemon, grass, and cleaning solution. The taste is fruity hops, wheat, lemon, low but pleasant bitterness and nice.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is a very tasty wheat ipa. It has the taste you’d expect from an ipa and the smoothness you’d expect from a wheat beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured into a Boulevard Tulip. Not much lacing. Citrusy quality I look for in an IPA finishes with that Boulevard signature wheat taste. Great session beer!

Botttle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small frothy white head diminishing quickly. The aroma is a floral hops and wheat grass. Thin mouthfeel with a light citrus and a nice sweet finish. A decent wheat ale from Boulevard.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is hazy dark yellow, unfiltered.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of gasoline and lemon zest.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
I’m surprised they managed to get higher alcohols out of such a basic low/med-alcohol brew, but the gasoline odor is distinctive and very off-putting. It’s not apparent right at first, but after only a few minutes in the glass it comes out and gets stronger with time. And no, it’s not the room, my glass, hand/arm, or upper lip, I made sure of that. That aside, this simply uses raw hop odor to try to make things interesting. Sadly for me, I find the resinous type of hop aroma crude and non-enticing. So even without the petrol stink, this wouldn’t score too much higher...maybe a 5 for aroma. Looks nice though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It poured a cloudy pale yellow color with a tiny white head. The aroma was of citrus and grass. The taste was of citrus, lemon, grass and wheat. A very good beer with hoppiness and citrus without the heavy bitterness.
