COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our session IPA is copper in color with just enough malt sweetness and body to provide balance to a beer with bold hop flavor and aroma achieved by big charges of Mosaic hops in the brew house. This beer was dry hopped with a blend of Cascade, Amarillo, Centennial, and Citra.

Strong piney aroma with strong piney hops flavor that is slightly astringent. The subtle malt backbone with the aromatic hop flavor makes this a perfect light and refreshing summer session beer.

Boulevard Pop-Up has established a reputation for being one of the best Session IPAís out there. After having it, Iím inclined to agree. Dry-hopping has given this beer an alluring floral aroma that pairs beautifully with the bready malt smells. If it wasnít for that tropical hop aroma, youíd think you had dunked your nose into a glass of wheat ale. Thanks to a big, pillowy head, youíll have an excellent chance to enjoy the hoppy aromas. The taste is just out of this world. The dense malt tones down the bitterness of the Centennial, Cascade, and Amarillo hops which are often quite aggressive. This allows the stronger hops to impart a citrusy flavor that points to lemon. For the sweeter Citra hops, the malt creates an orange cream flavor that is positively amazing. Perhaps the only thing I would change is the carbonation. Itís just a bit too strong but is otherwise cleansing and refreshing. In the end, this isnít just one of the best Session IPAís in the states, itís one of Boulevardís all-time best ales, in my opinion.

Poured from draft: The aroma on this beer presents a burst of fruity hops. The balance between the malt and hops of this beer is fantastic and a perfect combination. I get hints of biscuity notes breaking through the hop notes. Light to medium bodied on the mouthfeel. Pop Up IPA is an extremely approachable session ale with loads of flavor and characteristics. I am very impressed with this beer & the direction this brewery is headed in.

Bottle pour, hazy golden color with a slightly smokey/yeasty aroma. Taste is well balanced with a good amount of hop that is not overpoweringly bitter with tones of citrus.

Pours a lightly hazy golden with a large foamy white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of fresh squeezed oranges, grapes, pineapple and loads of other great fruity and citrusy notes. Flavor of citrus, floral hops and bready malt. Moderate hop bitterness. Nice and dry with a cereal grain maltiness. Drink it fresh and pour it into a glass to fully experience the aroma.

A hazy, straw colored beer with a medium white head. The aroma is wonderful, lots of tropical fruit and light malt. The flavor is likewise fruity with a fair dose of bitter resin.

Pours a heady,foamy,lacy, lightly hazed dark yellow/gold. Nice hoppy aroma,citrus,fruit,floral,juicyness,tropical. Taste is full body,malty bready, good citrus fruit hop flavor. Maybe best 4% session ipa ive had. This would be really great outdoors though, I can see it being in a can if it already isnt. Tastey and refreshingly hoppy.
