Eagle Bay’s mid-strength XPA has been elevated to a position in the breweries varied, classically-inspired core range for spring 2021: a hoppy but sessionable offering that will no doubt fit right in with the rest of the South West brewer's year-round offering.
XPA is a modern, hop forward style that typically utilises New World hops, although it's not often you see them register a low 3.5 percent ABV. Despite the restraint when it comes to alcohol content, however, Eagle Bay’s XPA is loaded with punchy fruit salad aromatics that err on the side of tropical: guava, mango, passionfruit and vibrant citrus all pour out of the glass. The light body carries a very modest bitterness and more of those tropical, citrus characters, while Verdant yeast ensures a touch of sweetness remains, ensuring balance and flavours that last into a long, clean finish.
Eagle Bay’s XPA adds to a core range aiming to ensure every drinker is accounted for and, while sessionability is the beer's biggest drawcard, big flavour is the kicker that keeps you coming back for more.
