I remember a certain BLVD employee referring to black ipa's as "bullsh*t hoppy porters" years back, so I thought it was intriguing when they finally released a dry hopped porter :lol:

Same guy that in 2008 told me that sour beers will never be popular and 3-4 years later that professional brewers would never back an unfiltered hazy IPA, and if I want to drink juice that I can get orange juice at the supermarket. Big group of people laughed at that one, probably all hunting the latest juicebomb right now.

Kind of funny, but I add fresh OJ to an IPA that I am having a hard time drinking.

Boulevard BA Messenger Spiced Mocha Stout. I think this is the best stout Boulevard has produced to date. Thick and rich, with coffee bitterness to balance out the richness. I wish the cinnamon was more prominent. If I didn’t know it was there, I’m not sure I’d pick it out. Overall, I’m super impressed and this almost makes me forget about the Stout X series, which turned me off buying Boulevard bottles.

Got nailed by a prank today.

Given a tulip of beer and told it was a light wit.

Beer cooment: not bad... tastes like a wit lager.

Mother f'ing bud light. Even after being told lager I said miller light. I havent had anything from the bud/bud light or well light beer spectrum in 5+ years. Perception is a killer and tulips make stuff taste better. Not as bad as I remember. But damn the mind plays tricks when you trust what you are being given.
