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.

Pours more yellow than expected, kind of a golden color. Good head develops and retention is quite good, leaving a light tan, 1/2" thick layer 15 minutes after the pour.
Smell is well balanced with a solid piney hop lead and malt playing back up.
Taste is hoppy up front, malt hides but can be found, a bit of grass is present and some alcohol. Not the normal profile of an Imperial IPA, more of a normal one with a lityle more alcohol.
Drying, medium bodied, medium effervescence. A bit harsh on the swallow.

Poured this 12 oz. in date bottle into a Spiegelau glass. A cloudy gold body with a minimal white head that left only spotty lacing.

The smell was citrus, lemons. Kiwi? Whole grain bread.

The taste was also lemony citrus. Lightly piney. Sweetness was understated allowing the hops characteristics to shine. Drying finish. Drinks more like an IPA rather than a DIPA.

The body was medium with adequate carbonation, giving it a scrubbing texture. Pleasant, very tasty.
