The juicy IPA has minimal upfront bitterness and maximum tropical fruit flavors, the company says. Clocking in at 5.9% ABV and 50 IBUs, the beer has flavors of fresh citrus, stone fruit and watermelon from Ekuanot, El Dorado and Galaxy hop varietals.
Space Camper was inspired by Boulevard’s desire to offer drinkers an escape from the heavy bitterness characteristic of many IPAs, the company says. Their brewers employ massive hop additions at the end of the boil and again during fermentation, resulting in a IPA with aromas of mango, peach and bright pineapple.
Space Camper pairs with a variety of dishes like Chicken Biryani, Ginger Tuna Poke and Key Lime Pie.
As part of Space Camper’s “mission to Save the Earth – the Only Planet with Beer,” the brewery has collaborated with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant 10,000 trees.
Space Camper IPA is also a video game on the brewery’s website, reminiscent of classics like Space Invaders and Galaga. “The mission? Guide Space Camper’s fearless heroine as she battles to save Earth from an intergalactic planetary attack,” the company says. The game is accessible via desktop or mobile platforms.
