Val nicely recorded the new Jersey Shore show for me. It is one of my guilty pleasures because it’s so ridiculous.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “NJ Beer Co. took a bold step into a new era last Friday, Oct. 14th, with the limited release of our Pit Boss Double India Pale Ale in 16oz 4-pack cans! This is a major step for us as we introduce exciting new styles into the New Jersey craft beer marketplace, and the reception has been very enthusiastic among both our most loyal supporters and casual fans alike.”
Random: I still haven’t visited this brewery yet. I have to get up there.
The brew poured with a four finger, ecru colored head. The body was slightly cloudy and bright yellow. There was moderate carbonation visible. The nose had some citrusy notes up front, specifically grapefruit. There was also a lot of biscuit malt as well. The taste had a significant alcohol bite up front. It had some mineral water along with grapefruit flesh. There was a significant amount of malt as well. Lemon pledge and pine needles came through next. The body was thick and chewy with a lot of carbonation. The finish was lengthy and sticky with pine needles and biscuit malt. I picked this beer up for $3.75, which broke down to $.23 per ounce. I thought this beer was alright, but there are so many offerings that are outstanding in this style that I won’t be having this one again.
