Eagle Bay Brewing Did We Just Become Friends? IIPA

Style
IIPA
ABV
8.0%

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.
