Orange pour with a thin white head. Big hoppy nose. Flavor is a nicely balanced mix of piney, grapefruity hops and rich malt with a touch of grainy wheat. Very good.

The wheat is noticeable and nice in the aroma-complements the hops nicely. Floral, slight orange citrus. Nice body yet light enough to be refreshing, especially w/ the wheat. Some bready malt in there too. A bit too much of a weird tang though. Still a nice summer IPA. Definitely can taste columbus and cascade in the finish, maybe a little centennial.

12oz bottle from mrchopin. Pours golden orange with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange, hops and some malt. Flavor is nicely balanced between malts and hops with some citrus. Good mouthfeel and carbonation. Still a little light on the hops for my type of IPA though.

wow, lots of head here, if i had a sixth finger i’d be able to measure it. Tall and unruly. Hazy gold, lots of carbonation here, grapefruit and orange peel aroma. Yummy, heavy, sticky, gummy. Assertive IPA, holds back from attempting anything double. Abundant hops in a pleasant swirl of character and flavor over a firm malt body that while heavy, isn’t distracting. Everything works together here.

Golden pour with a big white head. Hoppy aroma with some malt in the background. Little spicy hp flavor followed up with malty finish. Very nice flavor, nice lacing on the glass. For under $7 a 6 pack, it is wallet friendly and tastes great.

Cloudy straw pour, big head and lace. Hoppy aroma. Nicely carbed, nice hoppiness is softened with a fruity soda-like sweetness. Nice light IPA, surprisingly good.

Great beer. I’d like more malt and a darker color but hey, it’s now a staple in my fridge.

On tap at Flying Saucer Austin. Has a cloudy copper golden with a medium white head that lasts awhile. The aroma is a hoppy grapefruit and caramel. Good sticky lacing along the glass. Medium mouthfull with a very smooth hop taste with a nice bitter finish. A very good IPA from Boulevard.
