Style | ABV
American Double / Imperial IPA |  7.80% ABV

Availability: Year-round

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.

4.21/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: orange in color with a one finger head that slowly falls.

Smell: loads of earthy and floral hop presence with some fruitiness in the background.

Taste: caramel, orange, mango, and pear are wrapped in a big earthy and floral hop blanket. Alcohol is mildly noticeable.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp throughout with big dryness arriving late. Long lasting hop-laden bitterness sticks to the tongue.

Overall: superb DIPA where the focus is towards the hop bitterness, which makes it a bit unbalanced but is seems to work.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

a: Very pale golden; served with a small fizzy cap.

s: Lots of pithy grapefruit with a hint of pine and scant sugar cookie malt balance.

t: Unblanced as hell which I love, but with a bit too much raw bitterness. Pithy rather than juicy grapeitfruit all but overwhelms the toffee and sugar cookie malts. Long lingering herbal, aspirin bitterness.

m: Light bodied for a DIPA.

o: Very nice borderline IPA/DIPA.

Serving type: on-tap
