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. MetalNHopHead (2191) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - APR 28, 2014
UPDATED: APR 13, 2015 Boulevard Pop-Up has established a reputation for being one of the best Session IPA’s out there. After having it, I’m inclined to agree. Dry-hopping has given this beer an alluring floral aroma that pairs beautifully with the bready malt smells. If it wasn’t for that tropical hop aroma, you’d think you had dunked your nose into a glass of wheat ale. Thanks to a big, pillowy head, you’ll have an excellent chance to enjoy the hoppy aromas. The taste is 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 amazing. Perhaps the only thing I’d change is the carbonation. It’s just a bit too strong but is otherwise cleansing and refreshing. In the end, this isn’t just one of the best Session IPA’s in the states, it’s one of Boulevard’s all-time best ales, in my opinion. swholub (20) - - SEP 26, 2013
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. Tacodestroyer9 (2) - Kansas City, Alabama, USA - MAR 17, 2014 does not count
