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.

Malts: MFB pilsner malt
Hops: City, Columbus, Centennial, Simcoe and Chinook
Wild Rice, Brown rice
Yeast: Chico
Original Gravity: 6.6 Plato

Pretty dry as expected, astringent, spicy & resinous. Alcohol seems well-hidden, easy-drinking

kassner (1787) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2018
On tap at weford pub but listing at 8.3%. Dull slightly cloudy with modest head but nice lacing. Fragrant, notable for its full mouth and bitter end

Quick3Beers (1609) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2017
Pours a nice light copper from a bottle. Aroma is big tropical and citrus fruit and a bit of vomit. Flavor isn't vomit but definite soap. Thin and weird.

Pine was not overpowering. Refreshing. Xxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxx ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a medium, hazy, metallic orange color; the head is tightly woven and firm. The aroma is both fruity and gristy. It drinks with a musty character, with a mashed, wet grain underbelly. Riding the wavetops are some stone fruit flavors along the lines of overly ripe peaches, all iced with a gristy, grainy feel. (#6779, 9/11/2017)

Growler purchase from the brewery (on sale, too). Poured into a frosty pint glass. Good lacing and a head that faded quickly. Hints of booze and tropical fruit. Super smooth going down; deceptive at 8.2%. Another strong EXIT brew, which tends to be superior compared to their tame, regular offerings. Cheers!

12 ounce bottle. Brassy gold color. Small frothy beige head. Clinging lace. Fragrant citrus aroma. Spicy pine notes. Flavor is bittersweet toasted malt flavor. Peppery notes. Dry, crisp notes. Complex and spicy with warming alcohol notes.

Smooth & tasty double ipa! Pretty orangish pour w/ a white head & some lacing. Aroma is robust w/ a variety of hops! The taste is also a mixed bag of hops but is actually refreshing & easy drinkable at 8+%. Well done!

ffaoe (1088) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2017
strong piney, resinous hop aromas, hints of citrus. golden and clear in color with nice long lasting head. hoppy with notes of pine, citrus, tropical fruit, underlying light caramel malt notes.

Voodoo (729) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Pours a clear golden with a pillowy white head which lingers......aroma is citrus and pine and malt.......taste very malty, slight citrus, bread dough, nice even bitter finish yet all very subtle and nothing dominating.

Dacrza (1096) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2017
DATA: January 22, 2017... OCCASION: finishing a weekend with another strong Flying Fish... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip...pours a crystal clear golden body that sports a central, vicious swirl... a spongy, fuzzy half-finger head that smears to uneven swirls and billows... mango, tangerine, and pine are fresh and alluring... biscuit and cracker suggest balance... rather straightforward, and that is okay... purses the lips in bitterness, kicks the throat with some spiciness, and warms calmly... the flavor profile is tangerine, mango, pepper, pine and some phenol...light bread doesn’t interfere with the sharp bitterness... a clean, smooth double IPA that finishes with pleasant effervescence and maintains its strength with the feel of a dry chardonnay...
