Brewed by:
Flying Fish Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

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.

Bottle to "hard rock" glass.
LOOK: pilsener like look, big white head, lasts.
AROMA: pine, wood, leafy earthy notes.
TASTE: bitter pine resin, I don't really taste or smell any of the advertised fruity notes that would balance this a little.
FEEL: Medium body.

Not my thing. I can appreciate trying to make a beer with rice in the malt, but this misses for me.

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.

I was a bit disappointed with this. The aroma is dull and boozy. The taste is also boozy and bitter with muted hops and a lightly toasty flavor. Reminiscent of a big lager. Best By date is 7/03/16 so i don't think it's old. nb

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

In terms of the less involved senses the beer is average.

The taste is crisp and clean with a lot of sweetness for a dipa. I could not discern any rice flavor.

Great beer, nothing to write home about however.

Wasn't overly pleased with this beer. On the nose I got this sweet kinda oniony/garlic type dankness to it. Definitely not the best smelling DIPA in the world. The taste to me was like this earthly slightly piney, sweet type taste. It says it's dry hopped with Citra........wasn't getting much citrus notes. I've been trying TONS of IPAs and DIPAs lately and this one is on the bottom in my opinion.
