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.

growldog from joe canals on rt 1 woody bridge

eyes...
whoa dog.. about a 3 finger 70s white muff happening here, soap and it barely moves when I shimmy the glass 'round, hazy straw with some lazy dna strands of carbonation writhing up the top in some weird summation of perpetual motion, retention and lacing are currrazy nice here, solid brew in the looks dept.

nose...
hmm.. definitely a bit different, sort of a caramel-y pine ? if there is such a thing? very heavy peach tones... this is throwing me for a DIPA... but after all the hop nukes passing this nose it is cool to see (smell?) something unique, I can not say I love it but it is different.

taste etc...
this is not a palette destroyer but there is some really nice fresh hop bitters directly on the tongue, but it does not leave the huge back of the mouth bitters like most DIPAs... which makes this a touch tamer (as is the ABV). it drinks pretty light but after a few swigs the ABV does make an appearance with some warming in the ole beer storage tank attached to this here torso, this seems to gain bitterness as you go on, it is in the pine variety which can almost border on pinesol flavor .. but it just dodges that bullet, the carbonation is a bit lacking in the overall presentation in the mouth which makes this not as drinkable as some DIPAs...

verdict?
the bitterness is here, but it is missing something, not bad at all but not great.

Been trying to find this one and got it at the Edison ale house in Newark. Overall a very sneaky brew. Don't know what the ibus are but very unassuming and very easy drinking for 7.85 percent. Really good but subtle at the same time. Would love to find this in cans. Good shit!
