3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I lovce me some Boulevard, but when I think IPA I think bigger hops ... this had a wheaty/grassy character to it ... as well as a slightly metallic one as well.
A little more yellow/gold then copper in color with minimal fizzy head. Aroma is a little bit of pears.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(tap) gold with small white head. Large grassy/citrus hops aroma. Flavor was similar - generous hops. Body a tad light. But a lot of flavor for a session beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden with a steady sticky white lace. Nose is grassy, light citrus, some faint tropic notes. Flavor is similar. Some herbal and fruity notes, but turns grassy and slick rather quickly and like many of this style is hard to stomach a lot of as it just comes across as flavored carbonated water more than beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a bright gold with an incredibly long-lasting blown-insulation head. Lots of sticky lace as well in the picture; nose is citrus, stone fruit, and rosemary. Light and drinkable on the tongue, with a savory edge that fits oddly with the caramel malt and herbal hops. Finish is long and orange-y. Not bad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy straw color. Thin white head with some minor lacing. Hoppy, fruity and mild malty aroma. Light on malt. Decent hop flavor with some nice fruity sweetness. Almost a juicy hop flavor. My favorite session IPA I have tried.

16oz pour at Alewife in Baltimore. Pours a clear dark gold with some sudsy white head. Nose is very inviting, hoppy, fruity, orange, some tropical fruit, mild malt. Flavors follow suit, lightly sweet, bitter citrus, some tropical fruit, wet grass, a little chive. Clean, dry finish. Absolutely crushable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Probably the best session IPA I've had yet in regards to quality/price. It misses the mark a bit in body, look, and depth of flavor; but I guess that's what's sacrificed in the name of "sessionable".
