Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mactrail on 07-20-2013

2014 Release:
Oneida is a vigorously hoppy, aromatic pale ale saturated with Hallertau Blanc, Cascade & 05256 hops, a new experimental variety. A stripped down malt bill keeps the focus on the fruity, complex, pungent hop aroma & flavor.

HOP VARIETALS: Hallertau Blanc, Cascade & experimental Hop 05256
MALT VARIETALS: Two Row & Carapils

2013 Release:
Oneida is Nelson-centric. The dark fruity dankness of Nelson hops from New Zealand give it an uber-pungent aroma, with the grapefruity citrus of Cascade providing a touch of balance. While more aggressively bitter than Fortunate Islands, Oneida still has a light body and moderate ABV. 50 IBU

Twenty-two ounce bottle.

A: Pours a clear straw yellow with a quater-inch thick white head which fades to a thin cap and yields semi-rings and splotches of lace.

N: Tropical fruits (passion and mango), citrus (grapefruit and tangerine) with faint malt.

T: Citrusy and a bit of pine and faintly vinous. Grassy and a touch of herbal notes.

M: Semi-moderate body and carbonation. Dry, softly herbal, citrusy finish.

O: Well balanced with a light malt. Easy drinking. Refreshing. Would have again. (498 characters)

A hazy, creamy orange and very light copper in color. Creamy near-white head which leaves lots of sticky lines of creamy stick down the glass. Very pretty, and it immediately reminded me of Alpine Nelson, which is always a very, very good thing.

Expressive Nelson hop component in the aroma: grapefruit flesh, floral components, and a bit of a sweet, freshly-baked bread character. Very nice.

Moderately bitter with expressive Nelson hop flavors. Discernible. Crisp and very drinkable flavors.

Medium bodied, slightly creamy. Moderate carbonation.

Like Alpine Nelson Jr. I liked this one a lot. I would certainly love to see this one in cans! (696 characters)

16 oz can poured into snifter canned on 5/19

A: unbelievable clarity its so light you'd think it was a macro light in the glass very light watery straw looking, lively bubbles small tight head dissipates to a film around the edges

S: smells piney with a lot of that crackery malt smells a little peppery

T: some light almost grape like taste and then some of that earthy pine and then that crackery malt and then not much taste at all.

M: a tad watery finishes clean though not a lot of lingering aftertastes

O: Its ok but if I'm going to drink a session beer id rather it be citrus forward to make up for the watery taste. The hops aren't aggressive enough and neither is the taste I would not drink this again. (721 characters)

Pale yellow, hazy brew topped with a very fluffy snow-white head. Good retention and wide, thin fields of lacing. Lots of center-glass carbonation.

Big hop aroma immediately upon uncapping. Bright, indistinguishably fruity hops; light dank sweetness, tobacco, and earth; honey; straw; light caramel and bready malts.

Light but full-flavored, sweet, and incredibly dank on the mid- and back-end. Vague tropical fruits, honey, biscuit and bread, tobacco.

Surprisingly medium bodied, not quite chewy, but still drinkable. No sting, not particularly lively, but not flat either.

Easily the most full-bodied and flavorful "session"-level APA or IPA I've had. I'm not 100% on board with the hop profile, but it gives it a huge, interesting kick, and is well-worth seeking out, especially for fans of Mosaic and Citra hops (of which this beer is reminiscent). (856 characters)

Nice little hoppy pale ale, though I think the "sessionable" moniker is little more than marketing speak, and I'd sooner go with Saint Archer's iteration if I'm in the mood for a brightly hopped pale. (200 characters)
