4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a great little pale ale and of those beers being marketed as low-gravity IPAs, Iíd say this is the best Iíve tried so far. Or, in any case, it is the one I am least likely to pinpoint as a lower gravity beer and itís actually one lightest ones as far as alcohol content so good for you, Boulevard. It is a yellow beer and very slightly cloudy witha long-lasting but thin head of small bubbles. This is a classic American hopped beer across the board w/ the requisite aromas of citrus fruits along w/ slight touches of pine and tropical fruit. This is a medium bodied beer but very much on the dry side. Vigorous carbonation lightens the mouthfeel a bit as well. There is just a touch of cookie-dough malt character to balance the hops but there is really not that much balance needed because of rather low bitterness. Itís finish is crisp and clean w/ a lingering citrus note. This beer is great and you can drink a ton of it. What more could you want?

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: clear gold, with a short bright white head. Aroma: juicy, fruity hops (grapefruit, blood orange, light pine), slight honey malts. Taste: crisp green apples, honey smacks, lightly bitter citrus and fresh, clean resin. Finish: smooth and dry, but not overly bitter. Notes: This is an easy-drinking IPA for the ages. Not the hugest fan of the style in general, but this one I could have all day long. Itís definitely an IPA, but Itís not trying to be brutal. Itís trying to be delivious, fresh, balanced, and drinkable. It succeeds on all counts.

Bottle to glass. A hazy light-orange color. A hoppy aroma. A good IPA flavor, with a mango-citrusy sweetness.
