BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.30%

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.

I found this to be a great session IPA. Taste of Centennial and Citra hops come through. Beer was refreshing and would be perfect for a summer afternoon.

Cloudy Amber color with inch of white head. Nose of grapefruit with hoppy floral notes. Taste very citrusy with notes of pine and yeast. Clean finish that lingers just a bit. Not a hoppy punch as with most IPAs but very drinkable.

I am in the process of going through all of the backlog of beer here at Chez Woody when this CAN Popped-Up! Hooray! The CANQuest (tm) CANtinues today as a result!

From the CAN: "Since 1989"; "Presenting a sessionable way to IPA that's built for everyday enjoyment. Pop-Up bursts forth with a big, fruity, citrus hop aroma, backed up by everything you love in a super-drinkable, full-flavored IPA."; "Recycle".

I Crack!ed it open and CANtemplated an inverted Glug, but I went with a gentle one, instead. A swirl raised two fingers of foamy, tawny head with great retention. Color was Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity and of course the Gelt Gang of Mammon, Croesus & Midas showed up for a taste. Nose was an interesting mix of grass, hay, crackers and grapefruit. It was like life on the farm meets a citrus grove! Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was a mix of grapefruit, crackers and hay, which was actually much better than a lot of the Session AIPA that I have tasted. It was as though old world Noble hops & new world citrus hops had learned to behave and get along under the watchful eye of the English malts. Finish was dry, slightly bitter, but just not my cuppa tea. I like my AIPAs to have more depth, more Oooomph! This really should be its own separate style, but until then, I remain not a fan.
