Rocky Ridge Stairway to ResinRocky Ridge Brewing
Rocky Ridge’s latest collaboration with Old Bridge Cellars land in the latter segment. Not concerned with current trends, this duo has crafted a classic West Coast IPA that swells with citrus. While the referenced rock classic is in A minor, the beer is definitely in C, with Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Columbus hops applied equally, and fresh hop flowers from the brewery’s hop garden used for late additions and dry hopping. The effect is a citrus and pine mélange, on a lean and slightly opaque body, that drives the resiny dankness towards a dry coda.
