750ml bottle poured into a tulip...
Pours thin, but a nice hazy golden yellow color. Three fingers of pillowy soft white head erupts, looks like meringue...sticks around for a long time and clings to the side of the glass leaving some nice lacing...
An abundance of dry, earthy and piny hops fill the nose with a tiny bit of citrus mixed in...I feel the rice is doing something to add aroma to this beer, can't quite put my finger on it, but there is a distinct spice or bite in the aroma that I haven't noticed in other "normal" DIPA's...the malts are pretty subdued but do add a touch of sweetness, but overall this one is pretty piny and bitter, hop bomb all the way...
Taste really follows the nose...bitter and dry, piny and earthy. I find it rather sticky and resinous, a nice oily hop presence. The more I drink, the more I detect some tropical fruit hop flavors and almost a rye like spice as well (perhaps this is the wild rice?) The alcohol also starts to emerge as you drink, a nice slow burn accumulates on the lips and tongue...
Drinks much thicker than it looks, expected a light body but was met with a sticky and thick medium bodied brew...carbonation seems a little low giving this beer a slick finish in spite of the sticky and chewy initial mouthfeel...
I am liking this one from Flying Fish, my first beer from them and actually my first beer from the entire state of New Jersey. Definitely something I would give another try in the future...

My bottle is about 14 months old, but was stored well in a dark indoor location, so I think it did nicely. The label says "WILD RICE" in big letters, but it smells and tastes like a typical quality IPA to me, particularly in the abundance of citrus. Very attractive hazy gold color. Drinks incredibly smoothly for a DIPA. Really like this one. Next time I'm in Jersey I'm going to need to buy more.
