Eel River Earth Thirst Dou­ble IPA

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine - - American Imperial Ipa -

ABV: 8.2% | IBUS: 71 | SRM: N/A What the brewer says

“A sea­sonal dou­ble IPA brewed in the cel­e­bra­tion of our planet and in sup­port of Or­ganic Farm­ing. Light, warm malt fla­vors are pur­posely dom­i­nated by a mas­sive dose of the pun­gent, piney, flo­ral, and citrus-like char­ac­ter­is­tics of Pa­cific North­west or­ganic hops, in­clud­ing X17, an ex­per­i­men­tal hop de­vel­oped and grown by The Ore­gon Hop­house.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Bright and juicy citrus, with nice grape­fruit, tan­ger­ine, and navel or­ange. A touch of malt sweet­ness.” Fla­vor: “Where the aroma was more fo­cused on juicy, the fla­vor high­lights more rind-like citrus fla­vors, height­ened by a nice amount of bit­ter­ness. The malt sweet­ness ex­pertly bal­ances out the bit­ter­ness and brings out a nice ruby red grape­fruit juice fla­vor on the back end.” Over­all: “An ex­pertly crafted West Coast IPA that show­cases all as­pects of a citrus hops pro­file, from the juice to the rind all the while de­liv­er­ing a solid base beer. Would pair great with some seafood, per­haps mus­sels or shrimp.”
