4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy, pale gold pour with a 1 finger, creamy white head. Aroma is nice, lots of citrus and mango and passion fruit heavy tropical fruit, some spiciness and a touch of floral and pine, biscuit a little caramel and toasty, dough, yeasty bread. Flavor is loaded with biscuit, toast, sweet citrus, pine, tea, melon and passion fruit up front, then some bitter citrus, caramel, bread, under ripe melon, mango and some spicy, fruity and lemony-citrus hops to the finish. Light to medium body with a creamy, and juicy to chewy entry, light to medium strength, blanketing and sharp carbonation and dry, maybe slightly astringent finish. I really dig this stuff. It’s loaded with my favorite hop notes and has a nice mouthfeel that might end up a little on the astringent side, but for an IPA with 5.6% and this much hop character I can live with "mmmaaaaybe slightly astringent" for sure. Please, oh please put this in 6-packs for a decent price, Boulevard. I promise it will sell... to me at the very least.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Healthy medium orange pour, very cloudy, half inch white head. Nice strong hop aroma. Scents of pollen and honey, melon and grapefruit citrus. Average carbonation with a lively mouthfeel and a very clean finish. Taste has more juicy citrus hops, pollen/honey, some resin and pine as well. Really incredible IPA, the IBU level leaves no trace on the tongue.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 01-15-2014 (Bottle purchased at Kroger Marketplace (Fort Wayne) This beer has a medium sized off-white head that mostly diminishes, hazy pale yellow body with slow rising carbonation and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus, pine, grassy hops, caramel, and bready malts. The flavor is very bitter, citrus, pine hops, and bready malts. The mouthfeel is thick and this beer is medium bodied. This is a beer for the hop heads as the hops are in your face. It is extremely hoppy tasting and a bit much for this non hop head. It is worth trying and a beer I recommend for one who likes very hoppy tasting beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Gold drop in color with a frothy bridesmaid-white head. Big and deliciously fruity hop nose: peach flesh, nectarine, grapefruit, mildly spicy white pepper, flowery notes akin to hibiscus and a pinprick of lemon drop candy. Moderately high bitterness upfront, though it quickly wanes into a lovely sweet maltiness. A very nicely balanced IPA that brings both punchy bitter hops as well as a sweetly mellow malt backbone. They need to continue making this.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- Citrus, piney.
A- Golden color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Hoppy, bitter, piney, citrus, tangerine, orange.
P- Medium body, sharp texture, average carbonation, bitter finish.
O- This beer is definitely hoppy, especially up front. The bitterness continues all the way through, but the citrus balances it out. It is definitely assertive with the hops, but yet it remains very drinkable.

Bottle. The look is clear, thin ok lacing white head, and the beer is golden to orange in color. The smell is very fruity, lots of orange peel with a little pineapple, some pine, obviously hops, and nice. The taste is caramel, some sweetness, nice bitterness, firm but not harsh, fruits, and more pine.
