American IPA |  4.30% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
As a brewing team, we sought to make an India Pale Ale that showcased assertive hop flavor and aroma while maintaining a thirst-quenching drinkability by balancing the bitterness with a slight caramel malt character. A blend of our base pale, Marris Otter, and amber malts creates a simple, yet adequate malt backbone that allows Mosaic, Cascade, Amarillo, Citra, and Centennial hops to shine with bright, fruity, citrus notes. At 4.2% ABV and 41 IBUs, Pop-Up I.P.A. is a full flavored beer that’s suitable for all-day drinking.

Had this on numerous occassions from the bottle and tap, but this is the first chance I've had to sit down and review it. Love the entire line - Double-Wide, Single-Wide and this one.

Icy white head ringing the edge, with large pocks of bubbles clinging together. The beer glows a sunny golden, with only hints of orange when the light hits it.

Mango, passionfruit, pineapple on the nose - that's a big bowl of tropicals. An awesome first whiff.

Similar to the tongue, with those tropicals and a muted breadiness holding it all together.

Carbonated and sparkling to the tongue - completely enjoyable and highly sessionable.

Bottled in December 2013, best by 05/16/14 (a month after the date of this tasting).

A: Mildly hazy gold with a fizzy head of pure white. Soft, pillowy retention stays for the duration, as does a strand or two of lace.

S: A nose imbued with the flowery aromas of Noble-esque hops: lemon, fresh-cut grass, dandelion, and a touch of pine. Smells like refreshment on a hot day.

T&M: Crisp and drinkable, the palate leads with a rush of fizzy carbonation and a citrusy hop character. Mandarin orange, white peach, and lemongrass stand out above all else, though a wildflower flavor is buried not far beneath. The body has little weight, as well, making it that much more refreshing. Finishes with a subtle hint of bready pilsner malt (the only really saving this from being nothing more than a summery blend of hop oils and water) and the momentary snap of dry citrus rind.

O: Looks like session IPAs are a new trend in the world of American craft beer – and I couldn’t be happier. This one in particular is lawnmower beer at its finest. I’ll definitely be seeking it out by the six-pack when the weather (finally) gets a little warmer. Cheers.
