4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
One of my favorites. Boulevard’s Smokestack Series rarely disappoints. Nice size head, kind of fluffy after it settles. Leaves a healthy lace. Nose is a bit spicy, although not very hop heavy. Pours a cloudy, dull golden color. Taste is just so perfect. Subtle notes that make for a good IPA, along with a bit of spice. It’s all very balanced. Doesn’t sit heavy on your tongue

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Soft orangish straw, thick, hazy, moderate foamy white head, nice lacing.   A little citrusy nose, soft hop.   A little spicy too.   Great body right off the bat.   Thick and chewy, smooth, citrusy, hoppy, and spicy.   Nice balance, easy drinking.   Hoppy exit, with lingering citrus peel and spices.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with lemongrass, grains of paradise, soft hop, some citrus peel and pith.   Pretty good "White IPA".

P: Fairly clear vivacious pale golden body with a massive cap of dense meringue head. Retention is great and crumbles to a rocky crown leaving thick chunky lacing.
S: Spice forward with coriander, cinnamon, star anise, clove, bubble gum, belgian yeast and follows up with earthy hop oil dipped in citrus.
T/M: Lots of tangy wheat, coriander, lemongrass, clove, herbs and dirty earthy hops. Creamy medium body with faint carbonation. Semi-dry finish with lingering orange rind.
O: A nice balanced brew with earthiness, citrus and spices. I could drink this all day long. The yeast strain is delicate and not cloying which helps with the drinkability. I enjoyed the collaboration 2 so I had to grab this. Cheers!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A steady pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip produces a three finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a honey color that shows a brilliantly clear, rich, yellow-gold hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of ripe tropical fruit mixed with sweet, floral citrus that is backed by spicy, lightly herbal hop notes; lychee, candied guava, really ripe tangelo zest, really floral citrus character, and an almost woody, peppery character that has a woody edge to it that reminds me a bit of rosemary. The peppery & woody notes accentuate a pale, toasted, wheat cracker character malt character. The floral character is quite expressive in the finish, it is a nice mix of spice, and flower nectar.
Dry and light bodied up front, but the beer picks up a touch of texture in the middle that gives this a bit more meat. Lots of citrus zest with a really focused, ripe, floral, citrus character that leans towards tangelo zest, perhaps a touch of kumquat zest, and a Curacao orange zest character that is nice and bright. There is just a bit of malt character here that contributes a bit of chewy, almost saltine wheat cracker like malt character. The finish has a solid, earthy spiciness to it that suggests at clove, woody peppery, and earthy sage character.
Definitely fits the bill for a White IPA, and it doesn’t try to be overly "Belgian" in some sort of way; light, hoppy, with a reasonable wheat malt character that lightly accentuates the bright hop character, with only an accentuating amount of clove character and spice.

Slight retention and some lacing. Smells of spices and clove and ?bubblegum? Tastes of lemon zest, bubblegum and wheat. Interesting beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sunny hazy yellow pour with a modest white head. Very floral aroma. Starts off honey sweet, with a nice bitter middle that just kind of trails off. Light viscosity, light body but, well, kind of nice all around. Not enough bitter or floral or grapefuity for an IPA, but as something simply different this is light and pleasant. More witbier than IPA. Would I drink again? Yes. Would I order again? yes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle with a best by date of 06-2014. Pours with a mostly clear pale golden hued body with a large white head that lasts. Aromas are of spicy belgian phenols (almost a bit 3711 like), black pepper, sage, coriander, citrusy, zesty, fruity notes. Mildly grassy and fruity hop character. Flavors are dry, grainy/bready, mild citrus notes, crisp finish, medium low bitter, fruit esters, citrus, complex phenols. Lively (2.65+) carbonation. Dry finish. Pleasant to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light golden yellow with fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Citrusy, wheaty smell. Flavor has a lot of lemon-citrus as well as some wheat esters. The sage is quite noticeable as well. Very bubbly, well-carbonated (perhaps too much so?). This is interesting, but not really my thing.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Comes out of the bottle a hazy solar yellow with a good ivory head. Aroma is more yeasty than hoppy, more like a Belgian, with a strong fruity note. Flavor has a hoppy core that supports fruity, yeasty, butterscotch, coriander and sweet malt notes. Texture is smooth and viscous with a subtle but persistent tingle. Have one - reboot - call a taxi.
