Translucent and dark, this is a fine beer to behold. Hops play a significant role in this brew throughout, with bitter flowers evident in all aspects of this drink. Roasted malt is also powerful in both the nose and the mouth of this beer, which makes the transition from smell to tasting effortless. On the front of your tongue, note the mocha and roasted malt flavors soon followed by a strong floral hops taste. There are no off flavors to speak of, and though the carbonation was too high, the softness of the medium body cannot be rivaled. Boulevard brewed this one to please the hop-head in all of us.
