Beer & Chips Parings: Ruffles Double Crunch Hot Wings & Boulevard Brewing Company Space Camper Cosmic IPA

Beer & Chips Pairings are back but this is a little different than the others I will be reviewing the beer as well. This is Ruffles Double Crunch Hot Wings & Boulevard Brewing Company Space Camper Cosmic IPA, 5.9% with 50 IBUs. Space Camper is brewed with Ekuanot, El Dorado, and Galaxy Hops. Space Camper pours a deep yellow, orange color with a two finger with a fluffy head with fruity aromas of juicy mango, pineapple, with a light/faint pine note. Taste is resinous with notes of some citrus, orange, mango, and light pineapple with a hoppy note of the end that continues into the finish that grows slightly more hoppy with a light tropical fruit note and an aftertaste of tropical pine if that is a thing all with a medium mouthfeel. These Ruffles Double Crunch Hot Wings are orange with big ruffle ridges and smell like generic hot sauce. The resinous notes to cut down on the hot sauce flavor of the chips which is good because I think that’s if you eat them by themselves the hot wing sauce flavor would become too much. So Boulevard Brewing Company Space Camper Cosmic IPA is a good beer it has juicy fruit notes without overdoing that aspect with a nice resinous pine note to keep the fruit from becoming overwhelming. I give Boulevard Brewing Company Space Camper Cosmic IPA a B+. It is good and yes it does pair okay with the Ruffles Double Crunch Hot Wings but neither of them makes each other outstanding, I give this pairing a B-. Ruffles Double Crunch Hot Wings are good not the best but Boulevard Brewing Company Space Camper Cosmic IPA helps keep them from being too many flavors. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
