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.

Thanks to SammyJaxxxx for the bottle.

This beer should be right up my alley. According to the label, it is brewed with 5 hop varieties and dry-hopped with Citra and Chinook. And it seems fresh, with a bottle date over 5 months into the future (which I presume means it was bottled within the last month). But, despite the brown bottle, this appears to be light-struck. Completely dominated by skunk.

It's a crying shame.

Thanksgiving Day beer tasting at Bro's house. Probably the best IPA I've ever had.
