For being an American Pale Ale, 8 Days a Week by Beer'd Brewing Co has the aromatic punch of hops of an IPA in intensity and with flavors of papaya, lime zest, resin, and a subtle note of garlic. As it true of most APA’s, 8 Days A Week has a counterbalancing malt backbone of light caramel, grain, and a bit of biscuit.

That delightful malt backbone continues into the flavor with moderate bready, light caramel characters that are balanced by a medium-plus bitterness that is smooth and not abrasive. The flavor of the hops is a bit more restrained than in the nose but the same characters come out: resin, limes, grapefruit, and passion fruit. This beer is all about the malt and hops as you won’t find any yeast derived flavors in it.

8 Days a Week could easily be drank at least 7 days of the week; that last day is still in question. It’s a beautifully balanced beer that still has enough of both malt and hops to keep things interesting.
