4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home, courtesy of pepsiedcan. Thanks bro(nus)! Pours a wee hazy golden appearance with an off white head. Wow, the aroma is quite intense. Cracker, toasted pale malty, grapefruit, a bit dank nose. Super easy drinking, maybe a bit too bitter, toasted cracker, lemon, grapefruit, light onion, a touch piney, resiny flavor. Slightly too bitter, but not horrible. Great beer that I wish I could get in Colorado!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Murky, light golden pour, soft, snow white head with a bit of sticky lacing. Aroma is fresh and resiny with some hoppy spruce-like notes with a touch of spearmint. Flavor is solid withe some requisite grapefruit bitter notes, a touch of mango sweetness, some caramel maltiness, a hint of yeast in the back end. Nice thick rich mouthfeel. Thanks to Aurelius for the trade!

Bottle. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

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 I’ll drink another.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Pretty good, nice pine hop profile. However slightly watery not balanced. Good but not rememberable.
