A Note on This Beer
The juice bomb craze may have started in Vermont, Massachusetts, and New York, but it’s a New Jersey brewery that’s pushing the New England-style IPA into the future with Cryogenic Hops: Flying Fish Brewery.
With Jersey Juice IPA, Flying Fish harnesses science to create more guava and mango nectar fruitiness than you get with hops straight off the vine by using Cryo Hops. These aren’t hops that were frozen hundreds of years ago - this process refers to the act of separating pure hop flavor and resin from unwanted, vegetal character. In other words, in Jersey Juice, you’ll experience twice the amount of fruit flavor of dank papaya and grapefruit.
Thanks to these Cryo Hops, Flying Fish is able to douse this IPA with double the amount of hops without drowning the brew in off-putting, astringent flavors. At first sip, you’ll experience a fruity hop stack of dense mangoes and tangerines. With the next sip, you’ll savor echoes of blueberries that ride headlong into pools of sappy hop resin. The mouthfeel is rich thanks to the beer’s unfiltered, slightly cloudy depth.
Last time we featured this beer, Flying Fish politely requested we send some stock back because they didn’t anticipate its popularity in their home state — we politely declined. Luckily, they amped up production this time around, but we’re sure New Jersey would prefer to keep their Juice all to themselves. Too bad for them. Science rules.
