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.

Had on tap on 1/9/14 at Lures

A-Pours a cloudy pale orange color with a one finger head. Decent lacing.

S-Nose of citrus and floral hops, honey malt, and light cheese.

T-Taste is of pine, sweet caramel malts, some fruit and some resin. Not unpleasant, but understated.

M-Mouthfeel has medium bodied and a bit sticky. Finishes more to the sweet side of bittersweet, with the caramel and the sweet fruits overwhelming the citrus.

O-Overall a great DIPA the rice I think is a nice ingredient

Exit 16 pours a bright, clear, straw yellow color with a small sized head with okay retention and leaves low lacing. Smells of dank hops, grapefruit, lemon, and bread.

You can really taste the citra hops in this one. Taste starts with dank citra hops and grapefruit, then moves to tangerine and lemon, with a bready, dank, grapefruit finish. Mouthfeel is light for a IIPA with above average carbonation, has a bit of creaminess. Usually I would like a fuller bodied IIPA, but the lighter body on here work with the flavors.
