DDH Bowie’s Space Suit: Vic Secret
Eagle Park Brewing is known for their wonderful hazy IPAs and Bowie’s Space Suit is a great one. This double dry-hopped version turns things up with a big addition of Vic Secret hops to the standard Galaxy and Citra.
It pours a very hazy yellow with a bubbly white head of foam and has an almost milky appearance that you see in many Vic Secret-heavy beers.
Inhale and you’re met with a bit fruity nose. Tons of tropical fruit, with piles of pineapple and passionfruit. A distant hint of pine.
Taking a sip is like tropical sunshine. A rush of fruity flavors, with pineapple and passionfruit standing out most prominently, along with notes of apricot and a hint of citrus. No bitterness in sight, with a soft mouthfeel and a dry, juicy finish.
This brew is everything you look for in a juicy, hazy IPA. Piles of hop character in the aroma and flavor, without any of the bitterness hops were originally included in beers to impart.
The hazy hop action in Eagle Park DDH Bowie’s Space Suit: Vic Secret is fruity fun. It packs the huge hop character so desirable in the style and really showcases the wonderful character of Vic Secret hops.
Check out this hoppy spaceman, if you get a chance. It’s a bright star in the IPA universe.
