Nice lighter tasting IPA, very clean, very crisp, nice hop profile as well, more of a golden color, leaning towards a pils but definitely an IPA, well done

GJF (1288) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JAN 24, 2015
On tap at the Sanctuary. Hazy orange, fluffy head. This is a surprisingly good everyday Boulevard. I hope this comes out as a regular in our area. Bitter dry finish and Iíll drink another.

DialSquare (3025) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2015
12oz bottle from a sampler 12 pack from Giant Eagle Market in Upper Arlington. Clear yellow gold pour. Aroma of citrus, lemon, bisbuit. Tastes of cereal, orange, faint spice, floral sweet malt. Even. Light bitter finish. Decent stuff.

bookman10 (681) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Pours a clear, light yellow, with mid-sized head, that quickly dissipates. Bright, floral, hop aromas, with citrus and tropical fruit. Flavor is very bitter, strong citrus/grapefruit, with hop bite. This is a good one.

Aurelius (4442) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Squat 12 oz bottle. Functional label. Misty, green-gold brew with a tall, white, seafoam sticky head. Pine and pineapple, moderately sweet aroma. Average AIPA flavors - citrus pith, a little caramel, hops, blah, blah, blah. A little resinous, probably the Mosaic kicking in. Medium body, maybe a little heavy, loses carbonation and generally gives the impression of being flat. Servicable, not great. Kroger, Savannah, GA.

Bulk_Carrier (2307) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Best by date of 3/7/15. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking glossed over orange color with a slight transparency trying to run about it. Carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace to fill a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about less than forty seconds. Light lacing stuck around the sides of the glass. The smell had sharp citrus to big bitter piney hops. The taste took those previously mentioned flavors to town and subtly added an underlying sweet citrus aftertaste leading to a sweet and wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp with a slight subtle smoothness of sweet pine rolling over my tongue. Overall, yeah, I like this one. It fits the bill as an AIPA and goes just above.

Strong hoppy aroma. Dull yellow pour. Very well balanced leafy taste. Has bitter after taste. Not too strong. Very tasty!

Pretty good, nice pine hop profile. However slightly watery not balanced. Good but not rememberable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (7210) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2014
12oz bottle, thanks to phaleslu. Best by 1/26/15. A 100+ IBU 5.6% ABV IPA? Cool, sounds interesting. Thin white head, leaving decent spread of lace. Medium body. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Citrus, pine, kind of peppery hop, but more bitterness than aroma it seems. Not much of a malt base, and a slight metallic to the flavor. No balance, I guess thatís intentional? Interesting stuff, but the whole point is intense bitterness with this thing, which isnít that fun without the malt, body, and aroma to back it up. A beer this light should be kind of refreshing and easy-drinking, right? But this is not... I guess thereís a reason we donít typically see this kind of thing. Perhaps itís already past itís prime?

alexanderj (3349) - Branson, Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle; poured a dull amber color with a whitish head. Aroma of pine resin, citrus, earth and funky hops. Aggressively hopped. Earthy, a bit piney, not all that complex.

Slightly hazy, golden color with a small but perfect frothy, long-lasting white head and lacing. Nice citrusy, hoppy aroma. Medium body and carbonation. Long finish.
