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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - The beer poured a light golden color into the IPA glass, forming a generous white head. Lacing was left as the head receded.

Smell - The citrus comes through in the aroma with a sense of dank following closely behind. The malt profile is detectable.

Taste - The citrus makes the initial impression but their is a peppery profile that follows. Orange, grapefruit and papaya notes are present. The taste grows progressively more bitter as the citrus fades. The malt is difficult to detect, making this lean more toward an American version of the style.

Mouthfeel - The thickness allows the bitterness to linger in the aftertaste. It certainly fits the style.

Overall - The sweetness I expect from the malts in the background is not present. To be a really good DIPA, a beer needs to hit this mark. It is the only real shortcoming in this beer.

On-tap at Zeppelin Hall, Jersey City, NJ

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin yet dense white head that has good retention properties and consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lots of lacing running down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light to moderately strong aromas of citrus and tropical fruit hops in the nose along with some hints of pine resin.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of citrus and tropical fruits along with notes of pine resin. There is a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather easy to drink for the style because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste.

On tap at Trinity and Pope in Asbury Park, NJ.

A-served in a 10oz stemmed glass with the breweries markings on the glass. The hazy copper-orange color, fluffy white head, and good lacing deserved a pint glass.

S-lots of citrus and pine.

T- bready malts, a touch of caramel sweetness, perhaps. Lots of citrus fruit flavor. The pine scent does not come out in the taste like I'd expect it to.

M- it's carbonated and has medium body. No pine oil feel, a slightly dry finish to go with the hop bitterness. Good.

o- I mentioned to my wife while drinking this beer that it reminded me of PtE without the pine. I'll stick to that.

Growler filled at the Coppermine in North Arlington, NJ. Pours a lightly hazed, deep gold, with a small white head that settles rather quickly and patchy lacing. Nose is a medley of hop notes; citrus, pine, resins, floral and dank earthy notes all emerge. Smells like a bitter hop bomb and that’s just what it is.

Assertively bitter, with floral, citrus, and pine hop notes. Minimal malt presence, light caramel, but finishes quite dry; very much in the west coast DIPA mold, but lacking some subtlety. Bitterness gets the best of things and overshadows the finer hop details to some degree, lingering in the mouth for quite a while in the finish. Very tasty but not the most nuanced example of the style.

Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, fairly smooth overall feel. Quite a good beer, if not a great one.
