Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our house double IPA, The 87, has a piece of NSB history in its moniker. Named for our home at 87 Santilli Highway in Everett, this luscious hop-bomb is wonderfully drinkable even with a little extra ABV. The 87's hop profile marries traditional American varietals with some exciting, newer hops. After a few iterations, we're pretty dang happy with the recipe.

Definitely a hop-bomb, you feel the hoppiness right away. A solid if not overpowering scent, unsurprisingly hoppy in nature. You can tell this is a double IPA but the alcohol is fairly well hidden. Quite crisp. Very enjoyable all around.

Excellent DIPA. Not anything special but very solid

A: The beer is very hazy to near cloudy yellow in color. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and a few specks clinging to the edges of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrus and pine are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of citrus and pine along with a moderate amount of bitterness. The pine is most noticeable in the finish but doesn't have a resinous taste to it.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be quite enjoyable, particularly its smell, taste, and crisp bite on the mouthfeel.

Golden and hazy goodness! A bit hot at 8%, but overall an excellent citrusy DIPA from Night Shift. Nice balance.

Canned 12/29/17. This beer has a very stunning hazy amber-orange appearance, with a creamy, fluffy 3 finger head.

Aroma is of both floral hops and bright citrus fruits.

The age of the hops are detectable for sure, so beyond the hop spoilage, I get bright citrus fruit - grapefruit, lemon, orange. Slight herbal/floral notes, very slight pine. Still gonna rate this a 4.

Feel is crisp and clean but with just the right amount of resin for a double IPA for me. Sensed, but not overpowering.

Overall, I'd love to try this fresh. Might be my favorite Night Shift beer so far.
