Availability: Year-round

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.

look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Gift bottle poured in large ale glass.

A: hazy pale orange; almost no head but a decent carb stream
S: strong aroma, mostly malt and more malt; the papaya is noticeable; smells like there's going to be a bite; inviting
T: distinctive DIPA; the hops come through with vibrant clarity, esp. their dry-hopped choices, Chinook and Citra; light malt flavor, quite sweet; mango and papaya

Overall, a solid and distinctive DIPA; I would enjoy more of these, but I wouldn't drink it frequently.

Pour is a surprisingly light golden yellow. Just a whiff of head, with a modest amount of lacing.

Nose is a little subdued, but a nice little bit of citrus.

Taste is super fruity up front. Lots of mango and lemon immediately. Blends into some soft, dry pine and finishes with a nice crisp bitter hop.

Feel is medium. Solidly medium.

Nice beer. Was hoping for a little more though in the nose and flavor department especially. And I've never been so bummed by appearance in a DIPA. Looks more like a basic pale ale than the DIPA described. Good, but I wanted more.
