Notes/Commercial Description:
Although usually identified with landfills and pipelines, the Hackensack Meadowlands is an amazingly diverse ecosystem providing vital animal and plant habitat. In a nod to a once common food plant here, we’ve brewed this beer with wild rice. We also added organic brown and white rice, as well as pils and pale malts.

Rice helps the beer ferment dry to better showcase the five different hops we added. Lots and lots of them. We then dry-hopped this Double IPA with even more–generous additions of Chinook and Citra hops to create a nose that hints at tangerine, mango, papaya and pine. This beer pairs extremely well with spicy foods and all kinds of seafood. And of course, it’s quite enjoyable all by itself.

Wow. Drank the whole bottle before realizing it was 8.2.
So smooth for a DIPA. Great head and lacing lasted the whole way through. Definetly sweet from the rice. Light color and smell. Only complaint would be it needs more hop bite. I bought this in a mixed six pack and will definitely be getting a whole sixer in the future.

medium clarity. smells like sweet hops - tangerine pine. mild carbonation. dry. mild but refreshing. smooth and not too bitter for an dipa. tastes like ipa sake. i pick up on the rice malt combo. easy to drink. overall well balanced. alcohol is a tad overly apparent at the end.
