Abbeydale Brewery Huckster Cryo (6%)

Brewed in collaboration with Peddler, Huckster Cryo is a superb NEIPA, crisp and dry and sharp.
It pours a very pale straw colour and smells of pineapple chunks and apricots, and I also found a rich Weetabix aroma, but only after I accidentally snorted a headful.
The malting is very light, with spicy cinnamon toast and Rich Tea biscuits creating a subtly sweet base.
The Hops, and there are a lot of them – Ekuanot, Eureka, Sorachi Ace, Galaxy, Vic Secret, Citra and Ekuanot Cryo – combine to give you a stingingly sharp and brittle nettle sting and herbal leaf greenness, edged with lemon zest and melon juice, kiwi and passion fruit.
It’s a big bright and cuttingly bitter hop hit, and it combines with a gin clear alcohol heat that warms the fug of orange and peach yeast in the finish.
