When Boulevard Brewing Company (Kansas City, MO) launches their first canned offerings this year, a completely new offering will be among them – Heavy Lifting IPA. The new hoppy beer is actually a “cousin” of another beer, Mid-Coast IPA. Beer Street Journal reached out to Ambassador Brewer Jeremy Danner for more info.
Compared to Mid-Coast IPA (a Tasting Room Series offering), the alcohol by volume has gone up from 5.6% to 6.2%, but the bitterness (IBUs) have gone from 100 to mid 80s. (That’s less bitter if bitterness units are foreign to you.)
Boulevard Heavy Lifting IPA will join the year round lineup in April, 2015. Lovers of Boulevard AND hops can look forward to The Calling IPA, a new year round offering in the Smokestack Series to hit this month.
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year Round.
Release: April, 2015
