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.

Citrusy cookie scent. Balanced w/ hints of orange juice and biscuit. Refreshing mouthfeel. Balanced is the word here.

Thanks to Bilco for the can.

Appearance: Slight chill haze on a bright hay gold. Head is white and creamy. Dense cap. Decent retention leaves a small dense cap for the duration. Sheets of lacing. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Tangerine, mango, peach, lots of tropical fruit. Mango. Malts are slightly bready with some undercooked biscuit. Crackery snap coupled with some pale malt sweetness. White bread crust. Slightly toasted. Some caramelized malt sweetness. Some alcohol spiciness. A big push of oily pine needle and resin. A touch of mint. Massively hoppy but the malts offer a nice balance. Grapefruit. Warming blends it all together just a bit better.

Taste: Snaps bitter up front. Solid bright fruitiness comes right after. Deeply tropical. Peach, mango, tangerine, grapefruit, and papaya. Malts offer up a slight toasted element with a touch of caramelized sweetness. Pine needle and a ouch of resin. Some aspirin bitterness. A touch of woody mint. Some toasted white bread crust with some biscuit dough thrown in for good measure. Alcohol creeps through the back and builds as it warms. A touch of heat on the back with some associated spiciness. Slightly herbal.

Mouthfeel: Slick medium body with some slight creaminess. Slightly sticky. Moderate carbonation. Some astringency which is expected given the alcohol.

Overall: My new favorite thing from Jersey.

A big but not too big DIPA. Solid malt body that enhances the hop profile and works well overall. Bitter in good measure. Balanced or at least as much as something this big is able.

From a can, pours a mostly clear golden color with a fluffy soft white head.

The smell is very clean and straight forward. It is dominated by tropical fruit, citrus rinds, a little pine and just a touch of resin. The flavor is almost identical. Man this is clean and very well done. Lots of tropical fruit, citrus rinds, earthy pine hops and resin, with just a touch of caramel malt and candied sugar to bring it all together. The finish is crisp, just a touch of citrus bitterness.

This is delicious. Drink it when you can.

Solid double. Getting so many different flavors on pallet as I drink through this. Sometimes it's really tropical. Sometimes really bitter and sometime malty sweet. Solid double IPA all around. Thanks Chris, solid extra!
