"No two rides are ever quite the same." In the case of our rotating, experimental NEIPA series, this couldn't be more true. Repping a consistent malt bill, yielding an ABV of 6.3%, Woods Ride reinvents its hops schedule with every iteration.
With a large proportion of flaked grains, but only a comparably modest helping of caramel malts, this New England-style IPA touts a hazy, golden complexion that prominently showcases the hop-balanced flavors and aromas, imparted at various points in the brewing process. Woods Ride #3 displays mild bitterness with juicy, citrus-forward flavors, while Woods Ride #2 favors a stronger bitterness with earthy and floral tones. Some iterations favor heavy-dry hopping schedules, while others focus on boil and whirlpool additions. There are no rules when it comes to adding hops to our Woods Ride creations, making each one unique from the last.
Thus far, Woods Ride has four iterations--three of which are available in cans! And, speaking of cans, did you know that our cans are available for sale online?

On the bright side, we continue to keep traditions alive by offering our first-ever online trivia event! Tonight at 7pm, Amanda will be hosting a trivia live-stream on our Facebook Page.
