Ed­dy­line Epic Day Dou­ble IPA

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine - - American Imperial Ipa -

ABV: 10% | IBUS: 100 | SRM: N/A What the brewer says

“A com­plex malt bill with a plat­form that al­lows the pun­gent hops blend with notes of grape­fruit, trop­i­cal fruit, pine, and resin to truly shine. This is sure to sat­isfy the thirst of the most ag­gres­sive hop­heads while main­tain­ing re­mark­able drink­a­bil­ity.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Or­ange, pineap­ple, apri­cot, cherry, nec­tarine, and le­mon zest with a touch of toasted honey malt to bal­ance. An ever-so-light pine aroma is wel­comed.” Fla­vor: “Citrus and light stone fruit dom­i­nate the palate with just enough malt back­bone to cut the in­tense hops char­ac­ter. The body is rich and invit­ing, but once you sip it, you are re­minded that you’re above 10 per­cent. Medium dank hops fla­vor pro­file comes through mid-palate. Honey and caramel come through at the end.” Over­all: “A tasty bev­er­age that will slap you around if you for­get what you’re drink­ing. Hops aren’t quite as heavy hit­ting as some, but the beer it­self is well put-to­gether. Crisp fin­ish, no­tice­able heat, plenty of hops. Would be pop­u­lar at a party.”
