A Note on This Beer
Extra! Extra! Read all about it: USA Today names New Jersey’s Eight & Sand one of the Top 10 Best New Breweries of 2018! Today we snapped-up their hazy No.2 NE-style IPA to get a taste of the juiciness hopheads have been shoutin’ about.
Hold in a breath of the summer fruit aromas wafting off this IPA and let it absorb into your pores. Eight & Sand combines peach and passionfruity Citra, ruby red grapefruit-like Cascade, and tangerine-filled Mosaic Hops to pamper your palate with relaxing tropical citrus softness. A healthy portion of oats give this NE-style IPA a full body, and yet it’s surprisingly slammable, drier and easier drinking than most hazies.
With only a few years in the craft game, Eight & Sand has already won a GABF medal for their extraordinarily flavorful brews. The lucky few that’ve tried their beers are showering them with big brewery ratings on Untappd and BeerAdvocate, but since it’s so tucked away in tiny Woodbury, NJ: no cans leave the region. You either have to follow Hansel & Gretel style hop-crumbs to find their taproom or be an in-the-know member of Tavour.
