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!

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

This is one of the best IPAís Iíve ever had! Although it has a high IBU count, they somehow were able to make it a well balanced brew. They must be using some kind of fantastic malt! I really hope that this becomes an everyday offering from Boulevard. I guess right now, itís only available at the brewery. I called the brewery and they said that it is coming out nationally in 2015 so that will be good!

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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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?

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
