Beer of the week: Eight Degrees Summer Days

As usual I’m struggling to keep up with Scott and Cam in Eight Degrees Brewing in Mitchelstown.

As well as this fine session IPA they have a new single hop IPA out later this month in bottle (using Galaxy) which is already available in draught format.

Then there was the single hop Citra released in May (sold-out), and the single hop Mandarina Bavaria which came out in June.

Summer Days contains some of the hops just mentioned plus some Amarillo and Equinoox and pours a bright golden colour with fruity citrus and tropical aromas and a light fluffy head.

Fine citrus and crisp hop character on the front palate leading to a dry finish with lingering grapefruit and herbal edges.
