3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy golden color. A large, foamy white head is formed with three fingers and a soft texture. It fades moderately quickly, and leaves spotty lacing down the glass.
S: There is a decent amount of grapefruit, orange, grass, and lemon notes that betrays a rock-solid hop profile. What Iím not quite so sure about is the faint phenolic touch I also pick up. It sadly detracts from an otherwise very good aroma.
T: The flavor reveals lush citrusy notes throughout, and even an initial grapefruit-esque juiciness. It finishes with light touches of grass and lemon, and the dodgy phenols I picked up in the nose is kept in control here. Really likable if a touch mild.
M: I like how lush and creamy this is, helping to keep carbonation in check - and making it a bit syrupy at times. Aside from me wanting a drier finish, this has a very nice feel and great drinkability.
O: The more I have from Boulevard, the more I grow to like them. When done right, this is a style I really enjoy, and this beer in particular is a success. Iíd gladly make this a regular in my fridge.

Cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma contains citrus and pine. A little bit of clove also. The flavor is more apa like than anything with some bitter lemons and a bit of coriander and bubble gum. The finish is somewhat bitter. Overall pretty good.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden color with a blonde head
Aroma: Big hop aroma up front.
Flavor: This is full bodied hopped flavor, finishing slightly citrus and smooth.
Overall: This is a well balanced beer. It has lots of hoppy flavor, but not overly bitter. The wheat base renders the beer very smooth. This is a very good wheat pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on tap at West First. Interesting idea this....the wheat and the IPA together. For me would have been better without the wheat aspect. Pours a hazy yellow with a decent head. Pretty light mouthfeel/body. Taste is an actual assault of citrus with only 20 measly IBUís to balance it out. Like drinking fermented citrus juice. Would be really refreshing on a hot day after mowing the lawn- maybe.
