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.

16 oz can poured into Cellarmaker nonic pint glass. No canning date info that I can find.

A - Pours a very hazy apricot with two fingers of fluffy white head. The bright, translucent liquid reveals a wall of lacing with every sip. Impressive looking beer.

S - Tropical aromas burst from the can right form the pop. Once settled in my glass, I start to get whiffs of spicy grass and bready malts to compliment the big citrus character. Hoppy, for sure; floral, citrus. A little bit musty.

T - Strong lemon and clementine notes up front followed by ritz cracker malts. Bitter and dry on the back end with citrus and pine hops.

M - Lighter bodied than I'd prefer. Carbonation is light and smooth, almost cask-like. Nice dry finish.

O - I hadn't heard of this beer until a few days ago when a friend gave me a can. He advertised it as "the potential next Heady Topper." While the exclusive, single-state distribution and pounder cans draw the obvious comparison, I don't think the flavors are quite as vibrant, nor the mouthfeel as pure. However, this is still one hell of a 'tweener IPA. I love the can format. I wish I could get some more of this stuff nearby but it seems it will require a trip to eastern NJ.
