EOD is a reasonably priced, easy-drinking, delicious Double IPA and is prime for the single serve format.” noted Ordnance Managing Partner, Craig Coleman. "Bloops Blueberry Wheat keeps surprising us with steady growth across the Pacific Northwest because it is well balanced. Not too sweet or fruity. A delicious wheat beer with just enough blueberry aroma and flavor."

EOD DOUBLE IPA
Our take on a West Coast IPA. Crafted with generousadditions of classic hops, including Mt. Hood and Columbus, at every step inthe brewing process. While the hops are hard to miss, it is full of flavor, ranging froma light fruity sweetness to rich floral tones. Add in a higher ABV and this is a hop bomb of desire for sure.
