    I have a NEIPA in fermentation 10 days. It smells like pineapple juice but is harsh on the taste buds. I started adding hops on day three and every 2 days until yesterday. Have I let the hops sit too long?

    The heavy hopped hazies I've brewed have needed a week, sometimes two, until that hop burn subsides and they hit their stride. Though if you're getting something more vegetal about the hop flavour then maybe it's too long on the dry hop.

    10 days doesn't seem to long, but I don't do neipa's personally so I'm not sure.

    Try dosing a sample with a little baking soda solution. Finished pH and carbonates may be a little low.
