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.

A great new addition. Pours dark yellow and cloudy. Citrus, grass, and resin. Body of a wheat beer and slick mouthfeel. Tried this one before it had a name at the brewery courtesy of Jason.

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.

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.

Bottle. Aroma is of lemon zest and hops with the obvious wheat. The taste is a nice blend of hops and wheat...definitely the hoppiness is the stronger of the two, and it all balances out well. I’m never surprised to find that a cheap bottle of Boulevard is exceptional, and yet again that’s the case. 5.5% abv.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice and hazy gold with a fair amount of creamy head that laces nicely. Smells of citrus rind, orange, lemon and yeast. Tastes as it smells with spice and a little hops and finishes with a dryness. Feels light in the mouth and quenches ones thirst very well. A session beer no doubt and on a summer day this is an oasis

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy yellow color with a good sized head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is big and pineappley, generally sort of citrus fruit forward, but clean with a little bit of the scent of fresh baked bread.
The flavor is hoppy and fruit forward, lots of pineapple and orange with a tiny bit of banana. Lots of pleasant bitterness and mild bubblegum are both nice characteristics even if they seem an odd combo.
Altogether bright and delicious.
