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.

Bright golden body with a hefty white head that sticks around. Sweet aroma of lemon juice, pine, mint, and citrus. Tastes of citrus, lemon cookie, pine, mint, some rind, bitterness. Light in body with light carbonation. Really good aromas here and the flavor profile is refreshing but the beer lacks body. It could use some malt backbone.

Rich golden in color with great clarity. Easily an inch of tightly knit eggshell white head. Brussels lacing. Just a hint of citrus hops is all I get in the aroma. The flavor is a gentle but sharp dose of citrus hops. The mouth is fairly carbonated making it a bit less sessionable. There's a crisp dryness that makes it refreshing.
