3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a hazy, cloudy gold color. Smell of hops and pine. Too much for me. This is a piney beer. Probably more pine than others I've tried.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
16th December 2009
Hazy amber beer. Frothy white head. Light palate, pretty low carbonation. The hops are there but don’t have that enourmous silky piney resin of the big IPAs. Here there is zesty lemon and grapefruit (not too bitter). Refreshing.

Hops are good... Hops that make beer taste like Pine Sol... not so good. Ok, I’m overstating it a bit... This beer isn’t terrible, but pine is not my thing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into my ccb pint glass. Golden color with moderate carbonation, a paper thin head and a little lacing. Aroma of mild hops and malts to balance out. Taste is solid, good hop and malt balance, more citrus than pine. The beat part of this beer is how drinkable it is. Smooth and not overpowering, great beer after yard work or anytime you want one!

Draft. Rich O's. Golden, wispy head. Hop aroma is muted, but somewhat grassy. Firm malt backbone, bitter, citrus, lemon and grapefruit.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy gold with a fluffy, buoyant, voluminous creamy head that leaves some sticky lace behind. Nose is floral, citrusy fruit, and piney hops with some soft caramel. Taste is mostly bitter, with a light growing sweetness. A lot of flavor packed in there, really bursts. Palate is vibrant, powerful, medium to full bodied, refreshing with a lengthy finish. This is a well crafted IPA. Will seek again, nicely done.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Hilton st. Louis. Pouts orange with a thin white head. Big grass notes on the nose. The grass continues on the nose with a citrus vibe. Finish clean. One of the better IPA’s not from California.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Originally reviewed: 4/9/09. Bottle received from monsterfat (BA) in a recent trade. Thanks!
Pours a deep gold with a massive white, foamy head on top, that retained as good as any I’ve seen. A nice inch-width head throughout the entire drink. Some nice sticky globs on the side. Rings absent.
Smelled of nice piney hops. Some spiciness was also noted. Mouthfeel was crisp yet slightly wet. Drinkability was decent. Flavor was a decent balance of bisuity malts and a nice hoppy bitter bite. I was a little underwhelmed though. Nothing that spectacular, but decent. No citrus player noted. Finished a tad spicy. Not a bad beer. Glad I got to try it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I love Boulevard’s style. Transparent copper with a thick white head. Hoppy, but I find it beautifully balanced with plenty of malt. Some pineapple and tropical fruit pokes through. Long finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Caramel malt and pineapple/grapefruit hops aroma. Hazy golden with a moderate white head. Citrus, grapefruit, grassy hops and light wheat malt flavor. Light to medium body and carbonation. Solid, but I’d like it even better if it were a little more malt forward.
