Notes / Commercial Description:
2014 Release:
Oneida is a vigorously hoppy, aromatic pale ale saturated with Hallertau Blanc, Cascade & 05256 hops, a new experimental variety. A stripped down malt bill keeps the focus on the fruity, complex, pungent hop aroma & flavor.

HOP VARIETALS: Hallertau Blanc, Cascade & experimental Hop 05256

2013 Release:
Oneida is Nelson-centric. The dark fruity dankness of Nelson hops from New Zealand give it an uber-pungent aroma, with the grapefruity citrus of Cascade providing a touch of balance. While more aggressively bitter than Fortunate Islands, Oneida still has a light body and moderate ABV. 50 IBU

Thanks to Cherche for this one from his recent Ninja box. 16oz can poured into shaker pint glass. Canned on 7/19/16. Poured a very hazy straw gold color with about an inch of white head that had very good retention, and light-moderate lacing.

The aroma was fairly subdued, very light grains, and a bit of citrusy hops. On the tongue though, the beer had more personality. The grains showed through to give a good foundation, the hops were brighter and crisper, and there was a bit of fruitiness at the back.

The body was fairly typical, a bit on the lighter side average for the style, was smooth across the tongue and finished clean and dry. Drinkability was good, my can was gone quickly. Overall, a nice, solid example of the style. Worth trying if you see it, not sure I'd put a lot of effort into obtaining it.

Canned on date of 08/10/15

Appearance - Pours hazy and pale yellow in color with a white, half finger width head. Fair retention gives way to a thin, broken layer of suds across the surface. Lacing consists of small broken sheets and a few spots around the glass.

Smell - The aroma is delicate but rousing, with hints of citrus, mango and leaf. Faint bready sweetness.

Taste - Follows the nose. Soft, hoppy flavors that touch on white grapefruit and pineapple with lesser mango and leafy character. Faint white bread undertone. The finish is mellow pith bitterness that fades realtively quick.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with light carbonation. Smooth, slick texture that goes down quite easily.

Overall - Hmm, drinks more like a hoppy blonde than an APA, but a pretty decent brew all the same. It won't win over the hop bomb crowd, but those looking for a light, easy drinking beer with a fair amount of hop complexity could do a lot worse than this.

A pint can with a unreadable date code, but I trust the freshness and person that passed this along to me. Pouring it in a 13oz. tulip for the review.

Look- Pours a transparent brilliant gold with a finger of egg white foam.

Smell- A weak wiff of mild citrus and pineapple.

Taste- Passionfruit, pineapple and some floral notes in the finish.

Feel- Crisp and clean with a semi dry finish.

Overall- A crisp and flavorful session pale with enough hops to get your fix. The perfect grilling and or chilling beer without the side effects of it's bigger brothers. Yeah, I'm a fan of it!

Pale golden yellow in color. Clear in appearance. Citrusy, grapefruit rind, pith and cracker malt backbone. Light and easy drinking pale. Nice balance of sweetness and bitterness.

Nice biscuity, and bready malt followed up and slightly intermingled with a nice, smooth hop presence. Has a lighter body and mouthfeel, with some nice fruity and piney hops on the olefactories. Solid, Solid beer.
