Eddyline Brewery Epic Day Double India Pale Ale

What the brewers say

“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.”
