Don't sit on those for too long -- they need to be consumed within 2 months of brewing for optimal awesomeness.


mine have a shelf life of about 5 days max


What would you rank your all-time No. 1 beer (IPA, IIPA, pilsner, lager, stout, you name it)?

I had it last year, and it was pretty good (I actually noticed it was back in stores earlier today). I would probably put Founder's Red Rye's PA above it for the style, but I love both breweries so you really can't go wrong.

It's not a beer style that I'm too familiar with, but I can see myself seeking out more in the near future. After a few sips, I found a slight sweetness to it that I didn't quite expect to like in large doses, but it turns out that I do.

I wouldn't exactly say that I'm much of an expert in that style, either, but I'm a pretty big fan of IPAs so it's a variation that I've tried a few times. As long as there is some kind of hoppiness to them (whether it's a PA, IPA, or whatever), I'm a fan.

It's pretty decent. Let us know what you think.

I've had most of everything the brewery has put out, and found that the only truly interesting brews by Boulevard are those in its Smokestack Series and its collaborations.


Finally drank this during the Sabres/Flyers game. I liked it. It has a great nose, really citrusy/piney and a nice malty backbone like a Double IPA should have. Nothing really set it apart from a lot of other Double IPA's but it was good.

It just became available here in WNY, at least on tap, about two weeks ago and I'm really looking forward to trying more.

pliny at the top because its not readily available and I dont have a chance to get bored with it...Green Flash Ipa is a close 2nd place and is in my fridge at all times..the 2 others that take up space in the fridge are ranger and victory pils for a lighter beer...you?

If you're close (or if you want to make the drive (or flight on your private jet)), Pliny the Younger is being tapped at the Russian River brew pub this week. I would die for a pint of that.
