A little bit of sunshine comes across your desk on February 5 or, as it known in Gary Lezak's house, National Weatherperson's Day. Boulevard's latest Smokestack Series release, Grainstorm Black Rye IPA, is on shelves now.

Boulevard gave Fat City a bottle of the dark brew that checks in at 7.7 percent ABV. Brewer Jeremy Danner explains the process behind the 17th Smokestack release in a video from the brewery (watch it here).

"This one, more than any other IPA we've made, is really hop forward," Danner says. "The aroma really leads forward with that big, pungent hoppy tropical fruit character. And I think the flavor delivers that as well with just enough balance from the spiciness of the rye and the sweetness from the pale malt that we chose to make a really drinkable beer."
