3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle. Absolutely gorgeous; a lambent honey-gold with pronounced head and beautiful lace. The aroma is mostly citrus, but thereís a funky undertone -- and I donít mean that in a bad way, thereís just something odd about the nose I canít place. Flavor is mostly hops; I donít pick up a lot of malt in this, and it seems just slightly out of balance to me. Carbonation and mouthfeel is crisp and cleansing. Overall, i enjoyed this beer -- just wanted a touch more malt.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Definite hop aroma that prepares you for the IPA taste. Itís orange with a white head that lasts quite a while. The hops flavor and bitterness really comes through on the taste and that finish isnít overly harsh and makes you want to have another taste to savor the finish again. Itís a good IPA and I could become a fan of Boulevard.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer poured an amber/orange pour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and pine. Flavor of citrus sticks out right away and the hops come at the end. A good beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow, white head, little lacing. Heavy citrus, not a lot of balance. Lots and lots of carbonation. Pretty foul aftertaste. Maybe a bad bottle?

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reminds me why I donít buy IPAís. Bottle to pint glass. Pours golden, slightly cloudy, with nice off-white head that lingers and laces. Nice citrus smell. Bitter, painfully bitter, true to its style. Finishes bitter and very hoppy. Malts are non-existent. Has nice mouth feel that is refreshing, despite the.....bitterness. I tried to be fair in rating it, just because I donít care for IPAís doesnít mean this is bad, just not to my liking. I got used to bitter beers over in England, but have lost the tolerance.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a foamy three finger off-white head. Citrus/floral aromas. Medium body with mild carbonation. Itís hoppy. Itís bitter. The malt is submerged. Floral and citrus hop. Finishes bitter. Really nice IPA. Bitter just persists on and on.

12oz bottle. Bought a sixer and took it to my brothers house NYE 09. He drank the other five and good stuff he said. Had a good citrus aroma. Copper body with off white head. Good citrus grapefruit in the flavor and cool and crisp on the palate. Refreshing brew.

Iím not usually a big fan of IPAs, but this one was pretty good. Hoppy, but not overpowering with hints of floral. Smooth and easy to drink with a bit of sweetness hidden within the hops and a slight bitter finish, but not too bitter. I am not a fan of bitter finishes, but this one is a winner.
