4.5/5 rDev +22.3%
12 oz bottle poured into an imperial pint.
4.3% ABV, Best By 07/24/14
A - Heavy sheets of white lace cake the glass as the dollop of frothy whipped foam slowly plateaus to a lumpy pile above the hazed goldenrod beer.
S - A gentle breeze kicks up mowed grass notes into the predominantly citrusy aroma; sweet orange peel and lemon zest envelop biscuity pale malt and honey graham cracker on the back side.
T - Bright citrus dances on the tongue while lingering grassy notes move through the underlying grainy pale malt and honey-suggesting graham cracker base for an even-keeled brew.
M - Effervescent carbonation scrubs the tongue as this bright and light bodied beer washes down smoothly, finishing with a kiss of bitterness that lingers wonderfully on the tongue.
O - Boulevard's Pop-Up session IPA takes bright and citrusy hops with just a hint of earthiness and overlaps the smooth biscuity, graham cracker-like malt base with just enough balance to keep this an easy drinking, pretty refreshing IPA that's incredibly satisfying.

A: Poured smooth, with a white half finger head. Nice golden clear color.
S: Nice hoppy bouquet and citrus like aroma with hints of hops and grains.
T: Great mixture of sweetness and bitterness. Hints of floral and grain.
M: Clean, crisp, good carbonation.
O: Surprising combination of sweetness and bitterness makes it a winner.

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.
