On tap at the brewery. Good looking pour with a nicely hopped nose. Very enjoyable, but not discernibly different from the current boulevard IPA lineup. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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?

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.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle shared at the End of History tasting. Aroma is pine, lime zest and grass. Pours golden with a nice white frothy head. Taste is bitter lemongrass, lime zest and a grapefruit bitter finish. Nice bitterness though the bottle tasted a little old. Would love a fresh pour.

12 oz bottle from variety pack. Pours hazy golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, raspberries and biscuit malt. Body is light and crisp. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is medium, dry, and grapefruity. I expected much more from this IPA.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle from Wegmanís Collegeville variety pack, and let me just say that I am happy to see new Boulevard offerings come down the boulevard, as such. Pours bright and deep golden with 1-finger frothy white head. Nose is intense hops, big juicy citrus notes of mango, honeydew, tangerine, and black pepper. Tastes piney, very hoppy with a huge IBU load, notes of tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, and a bitter finish. This is a hop lovers wet dream. I want to go to the Boulevard tasting room. Please get me a cot, fine sirs.

Wonderful. Pours golden with a good head. Hoppy aroma with hints of citrus and a bitter but not harsh finish. My favorite boulevard IPA.

Bottle at End of History tasting. Great nose of fresh hop citrus goodness. tastes of oranges, grapefruit, pine, grainy, and straw. doesnít quite live up to nose but fun ipa I could drink a bunch of.
