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.

A - 4 - This is a golden amber colored beer that's crystal clear with a thin film of white bubbles on top that leaves a nace lacing on the glass.

S - 4.25 - Very citrusy/piney hops. Grapefruit, orange zest, lemon lime, mango.

T - 4.25 - Very citrusy/piney hops. Grapefruit, orange zest, lemon lime, mango. The rice taste is present too, in the background you get a nice brown rice flavor, almost like a hint of a good burrito. It's not your typical adjunct beer and is a really good ipa.

M - 4.25 - light - medium mouthfeel. Alc covered. Aftertaste is a nice citrusy hop taste. It's very hoppy but not that bitter.

O - 4.25 - Great beer, tastes amazing. It's unique - with a good rice flavor to it in the background. IT's nothing like an adjuct beer.

Appearance: Poured into a DFH snifter. Pours a light gold with a finger and half head of fine foam. Nice head retention.

Aroma: Hops dominate with rich tropical fruits followed up by floral and herbal notes.

Taste: Fruity and floral hop notes paired with a light and relatively dry malt presence. Interesting.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, light carbonation.

Overall: Interesting, enjoyable, and drinkable DIPA.
