Real Ale Brewing Co. | Boombox Double IPA
Put on that tracksuit, strap on the fresh kicks and queue up “Don’t Stop the Rock”–it’s about to get hype in here. When one of the top breweries in Texas announces a new year-round addition to their lineup, you gotta make some noise. Already providing multiple hopped-up offerings across the spectrum, Real Ale Brewing Co. still managed to drop something fresh that hits all the right notes with their Boombox Double IPA.
Blanco, TX-based Real Ale Brewing Co. provides a well-rounded selection of IPAs available across Texas all year long from their long-standing Axis and Lost Gold IPAs to their recently added Moonwalk Brut IPA, Fresh Kicks Hazy IPA and Squirt Gun Juicy IPA. Continuing to build upon that impressive playlist, they introduced a new DIPA that tastes both nostalgic and fresh all at once with Boombox Double IPA.

Here Comes the Boom
Boombox is unfiltered and pours solid gold with a lingering white head with an aroma reminiscent of Juicy Fruit gum mixed with dank hops. That first sip is comparable to a perfectly set EQ, when you get the bass and treble perfectly balanced. The malt backbone provides the right amount of body without weighing the whole brew down while the hops sing like tweeters over that malt bassline. This loud brew has a malt bill consisting of American 2-row barley and light caramel malt. Then, it gets cranked to 11 with late hop additions using El Dorado, Amarillo, Idaho 7 and Strata hops: Think old school West Coast IPA with the fruity characteristics of new school hops. Boombox sits at 8.1% ABV and 65 IBUs.
About Real Ale
Real Ale is synonymous with craft beer in Texas but for those of you unfortunate to live elsewhere, you can learn all about them here. Great beers and great hospitality go hand-in-hand at Real Ale and nothing beats the Hill Country cruise and views on the way to the brewery. Curbside ordering is currently available, but we’re all looking forward to the day when the brewpub opens back up.
