Eagle Bay Brewing Did We Just Become Friends? IIPA

Eagle Bay Brewery

Published February 21, 2019

Eagle Bay’s habit of sneaking new beers out to market has struck again. The latest Single Series beer is a Will Ferrell-referencing IIPA that draws dryness lessons from their recent IPL although, being Eagle Bay, this is only to enhance sessionability – more on how that works in an 8 percent ABV beer later.

The dry-hop expressions of Citra, Amarillo and Cascade hops are somewhat subsumed by Sorachi’s lemon meringue vibe, which leads the way on the aroma front. Pineapple also appears as do pan-citrus qualities and a wisp of pine through tasting. A clean and light malt body carries an implied juiciness, however the balancing crisp dryness and low-for-style bitterness greatly extends drinkability.

The crystalline length features a slight booze prickle – a warning that any apparition of respectability is likely to disappear as the veiled 8 percent ABV starts loosening the synapses and, soon enough, you’ll be asking someone at the bar: “Did we just become best friends?” and quoting lines from Step Brothers.
