BEER INFO

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

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.

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

A: Pear skin yellow in color with haze, and a bright white head.

S: Oh man that's lovely. Fruity with tropical fruit, citrus, and pine. Perhaps the best word to describe the aroma is juicy.

T: Like drowning in citrus and tropical fruits.. Bright, juicy, and just enough bitterness to keep it from cloying. The rice is a little hard to pick out, but it is there in the finish. This is dangerous.

M: Medium bodied with high carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish.

O: Overall this is a damn fine beer.. Tasty as all hell, and dangerously drinkable.
