Pros: Nice bright fruity hops in the nose. Very nice appearance. Restrained bitterness. Very clean and nicely balanced. Really quite good for the style.
Cons: Mouth feel could be more rich. Could be a bit brighter and hoppier.

Robe blonde et limpide, peu de mousse. Arômes biscuit, pain et écorce d’agrumes. Goût d’orange amère, résine, herbal. Final fruits jaunes. Assez longue en bouche. Une bonne pale ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice cloudy orange amber color. About two fingers head. Rocky retention and some lacing.
Aroma is a little unusual, I’ll call it bright citrus. Very fresh, sweet citrus. Almost like a lemonade sweet citrus. I smell some malts. It’s also a little doughy.
Taste is not as bitter as most of the style. Yes, there’s hops, but more citrus and floral than bitter. Plenty of toasted malts, and they balance the hops well. I would say it leans toward sweet. The citrus comes in at the finish. It’s not overwhelming, it’s there, and it’s nice.
Mouthfeel is pretty dry. It is super smooth, super drinkable. Just the right bitterness.
Overall, this is a really good APA. It’s clean, fresh, and so pleasant. Good session beer. It’s not as bold and hop forward as most, but it’s well rounded and man, they really hit a home run here. Well, maybe not a home run, but no less than a triple. Try it!

This one fell flat for me. Not much flavor. Malty and piney with a slight bitter finish. This is boulevards worst effort to date. Pours copper with a cloudy appearance. Meh

12oz bottle pours a clear amber with medium head and little lacing. Aromas of malt, bread, skunky, dough. Not bad but not great.

Enjoyable but a little bit bland. Mild hop flavor with some caramel malt. Less aggressive then recipes of today.

A nice balance between slightly sweet and bitter. Another good Boulevard brew.

Out of the bottle. Medium dark amber hue with nice white head and healthy lacing as I drink. Biscuit and caramel in malt sweetness. Grassy aroma with some pine. A little pepper and citrus in the flavor but again grassy & herbal notes dominate hop profile.
