COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wild Rice Double IPA. The fourth stop on our multi-year trip to explore New Jersey takes us to one of the most maligned places in the state- the Hackensack Meadowlands. It’s the place usually identified with landfills, pipelines, mob burials (alleged) and sports teams that say they’re from New York. Although no longer home to forests of giant cedars and salt hay marshes teeming with aquatic life, the Meadowlands is still 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 used brown and white rice, as well as two malts. Rice helps the beer ferment dry to better showcase the five different hops we’ve 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.

On tap at Iron Abbey. Quite hoppy with a strong citrus flavor. Dry with bitter aftertaste. Last drop of pint tasted as good as the first. A solid performance.

jmm635 (823) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2010
Poured a yellow/golden color with a creamy white head. Aroma is quite hoppy, as you might expect. Citrus and piney scents shine through. The rice does dry this out a little and really lets you taste the hops. I like it, but it’s average.

From a bottle poured a hazy dark amber color with a small amount of head. Citrusy piney hoppy flavor with a lingering finish.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - APR 11, 2010
Pours copper/gold with a generous white head. Smells of resin, wildflowers, grassy, some metallic elements. Tastes citrussy and bitter with a big peppery finish.

Bottle. Cloudy goldish amber. What a delicious aroma - spicy, citrusy, the beach. Lively. Flavor intensely citrus, lime and orange, bitterness almost perfectly balanced although I don’t mind it slightly off center. I just love the smell - woodsy more than piney, and maybe it’s just sentimental, but it smells like ... New Jersey, and not the part you’re thinking. The pine barrens, the shore. This should have been a Parkway Exit 0 release or something. Nice lacing. It’s a little thinner than I’d like. Flying Fish is really setting new standards with the Exit series. Exit 4 is excellent, Exit 1 was quite good and now Exit 16 - these are all better than anything they’ve done before IMO.

BMan1113VR (7786) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 10, 2010
Bottle thanks to swalden28 (with the assist from ericandersnavy). Pours with a small white head and a hazy golden body. Aroma is hoppy, bitter, citrus and dank. Taste is bitter and pine. Not much balance, and not a super interesting hop profile from the citra (the other c-hop dominates). Medium carbonation.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 8, 2010
On tap at Capone’s. Pours an almost clear yellow gold with a thin creamy white head. Big clean pine with a light citrus background and a nice subtle caramel malt backbone. Medium bodied with a lot of hop presence. Big and earthy. Finishes up with a long lingering tannic grapefruit bitterness. Nice.

TonyDiUlio (643) - New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2010
Bought this 750 for me and james. had a nice hazy orangey gold pour. Moderate white head that lasted for a little bit. Aroma was sweet and full of hops and some fruits. Flavor was hops, bitter, with after taste of citrus and sweetness. Nice on the palate.

jredmond (5016) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 7, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Tony. Pours a bright, hazy orange with nice foamy white head. The aroma is sweet hops - mostly grapefruit, pine, and mango. The mouth feel is medium with a nice complexity with notes of bitter grapefruit, pine, and a dry finish.
