Fresh and bright and superbly dry, this is a very good NEIPA that had me reaching for some classic Eastern Seaboard Hip Hop to enhance the experience.
Riding East pours a bright peachy gold and smells of pineapple chunks in guava juice.
Taking a mouthful there’s caramel biscuits, doughnuts and a big splash of runny honey, it’s a solid chewy body and it provides a decent base over which the hops are sharp and dry and pithy, with steely herbal leaves making you pucker, while lemon sherbet and lime zest has your eyes watering, and orange marmalade adds some stickiness.
This is made deep and round by the Vermont yeast that adds a rich earthy fruitiness to the long crisp finish.
