Notes/Commercial Description:
Like all things truly Jersey, 077XX makes the most in balancing through its accentuation of extremes. Inspired by the west coast IPA's we love, we added a thump of hops to a dynamic malt profile and chose a yeast to drive these two further than they wanted to go. Throw our water into this mix and you will find dank green resinous hops popping over orange, mango and papaya aromas, with just enough sweetness of body to make the long finish a pleasure to have around. A double IPA perfect for adding fuel to the fire of a dinner, a game, or an idea, drink it when your night matters.

Friend from down south hooked me up with a 4pk of this Jersey DIPA. Let’s see what the situation is here.

Very hazy straw gold. Tight white head is about a finger, but holds and laces well. (3.5)

Aroma is bright and citrusy, with tropical fruit notes. Alcohol is apparent. (4)

Flavor is very hoppy and dry. Huge bitterness building up on the tongue. Alcohol on the nose becomes more apparent on the drink, becoming fusel-like at times. Tons of grapefruit with a hint of apricot. Malt is right where it should be for the style: simple, pale and not caramel-laden. Finish is incredibly dry, but the carbonation and hop resins still provide a full mouthfeel. (3.5, 4)

Overall, very boozy for a 7.8% beer. Upon first sip, I would have thought this were in the 9-10% range, but the booze eventually takes a backseat to the hop flavor, which, combined with the dryness, keeps me coming back for another sip. (3.5)
