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.

On draft at Little Town, Hoboken, NJ.

Poured a medium a light brassy hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a balmy pine a d tropical hop with aromas of caramel.

The taste offered resinous hop notes of pine, orange and pineapple with a moderate sweetness.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty DIPA.

Cool "New to me beer/brewery" received in a great trade with BostonBrewser... Big thanks Dan! Poured into my FW goblet... Hazy light golden with a nice white head that shows good retention and lacing... Nose is pleasingly dry with fruity citrus/mango hoppiness, dusting of pale malt helps add heft to the hops... Big Bitterness but not bruising.. hop flavors are again leaning toward the fruits with more tropical essence than citrus.. Light body for the ABV helps with a bigger drinkability.. Really pretty good.. Thanks again Dan! Hope we can do it again soon!

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.

Pours a relatively clear light orange in color and with a small white head that has good retention which left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a decent amount of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Aromas begin with strong aromas of citrus and resiny pine hops. Light bready maltiness emerges as it warms but the hops overshadows most of the malt sweetness.

The tastes follow the nose with bitter citrus and pine resin hop flavors. Light malt sweetness again but the bitterness once again overpowers most malt.

The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Finish is a bit too bitter for my liking, would have preferred more late hopping and less resiny bitterness.

Overall this was a bit much for my palate and I found the resiny piney bitterness unpleasant. I prefer my IPAs to have more balance with malt or more late hopping and less biting hoppiness.
