12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep ruby/amber with a thick, lacy, light tan head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops with a good amount of caramel malts to balance it. Flavor the same with a little light fruit. Smooth texture. A good double IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to PorterPounder! Slinky, tapered bottle, hilarious label; murky, apricot-colored beer. Rich, sweet, fruity aroma with a plummy, pickled olive thing going on. A spicy, fig newton flavor - dry pastry, notes of preserved figs/raisins/apricots without being dark, a little pepper, ABV noticable, hefty bittering. Mouthy, with edgy hops at the tangy end. Really good - the name threw me off though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This DIPA pours a nice orange bronze. The aroma is fair with a slight pine scent. Again, BLVD is able to mask the 8.5% ABV very well. A really solid and sturdy DIPA with a bold toffee/resin bite. Very pleased!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Grassy, citrus and resin. Cloudy amber with a thick white head. Mild lemon grass and a hit of long but well balanced bitterness. Nice and drinkable but a bit weak for a IIPA.

Bomber. Pours a deep orange amber with ample frothy, slightly off white head. Aroma is decidely ripe citrus with slight hop bitter. Taste is a fairly complex combination of citrus, some peach or apricot, sweetness balance by the hop combination. A very nice Double IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma is hoppy without being in your face at all; in fact, the scent is nearly subtle, but the taste is bold with a strong (not mild yet not overwhelming) bitter flavor coming through alongside a very subtle sweet quality, which combines nicely with the palateís fusion of a slick texture, average carbonation, long bitter finish, and a medium body.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an optimistic orange-amber golden color with a HUGE orange hued, eggshell colored head. Underwhelming nose. Earthy, outdoor aroma with some citrus breaking through. Mouthfeel is a medium-bodied, thin, and wet. The flavors are very peculiar. This is like no IPA Iíve had. Some tart cherry smashed into a prune, stirred into toffee. Thereís some bitterness that appears on the sides of the tongue along with the alcohol bitterness right at the finish.
