Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: LambicPentameter on 07-28-2013

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.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and faint amounts of golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a medium side finger thick cap surrounded by a medium to large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrus/orange and citrus/grapefruit hops with lighter aromas of biscuit malts and just a hint of floral hops.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of biscuit malts with a light amount of slightly sweet grainy malts and honey. That is followed by moderate flavors of citrus/orange and citrus/grapefruit hops with a very light amount of floral hops. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades pretty quickly.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp.

O: A very easy to drink and enjoyable session IPA with a strong amount of citrus hops and not much associated bitterness. Very refreshing and a good summer beer. This beer would be very easy to have a few of during a single session.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Gold-yellow, particles, gigantic Belgian-like head.

Smell: Citrusy, dry rind.

Taste: Citrus tang goes to a lemony taste. Somewhat muted sweetness, little bit of breadiness.

Overall: Another session IPA, Boulevard's version does seem to have a little better malt base in it and a little more body than others I've tried. Not quite as hoppy either.

A - Pours a deep straw color with lots ad lots of carb. Bubbles rolling up from everywhere. It has a 1 finger quick to form fluffy white head with excellent head retention and very nice looking lacing

S - Lots of lemon and other citrus. I really like the ruby red grapefruit aromas. The aroma is all citrus style west coast hops!

T - Very similar to the smell. Lots of lemon and grapefruit, with other milder citrus aroma hidden and more subtle. It even has a slight pine finish

M - Very smooth and slick. Easy drinking with no burn

O - Good sessionable IPA. Nothing over the top but very drinkable with a pleasant flavor. Low bitterness but lots of citrus. Would be a good beer to drink by the pool or floating down the river!
