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.

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.
