JERSEY CYCLONE BEERS:
Eye of the Storm – 6.5% ABV Citra Dry Hopped IPA
Balanced IPA appealing to ALL beer lovers…just enough malt to round out the bitterness and a perfect platform to showcase subtle nuances of hops pairings, with Ekuanot hops used throughout the brewing process and a 100% Citra dry hop.
Imperial Storm Cloud – 8.3% ABV Imperial NEIPA
Flaked oats and wheat in the mash, giving this beer a rich mouth feel. Subtle caramel malts provide balance and sweetness to the massive dry hop additions. A delicious blend of Idaho 7, Amarillo and Australian Ella hop provide bold tropical and citrus forward flavors of Mango, Tangerine and Passion Fruit
Beach Blonde Lager – 5% ABV Helles Lager
Three types of classic German malts and Loral hops craft this malt forward yet dry beer. Bready flavor, subtle lager yeast character and cracker dry finish.
Back for S’more – 8% ABV – Stout
A bold dessert stout brewed with cinnamon, vanilla beans cacao nibs and lactose. Milk sugar and cinnamon were added to the boil alongside medium Belgian candy sugar which was then conditioned on pounds of cacao nibs and vanilla bean. The cinnamon and specialty malts in the mash give a cinnamon honey & biscuit flavor to represent the graham cracker, vanilla bean and milk sugar provide body and sweetness to represent the marshmallow, and loads of cacao nibs give deep layers of chocolate throughout the whole beer.

LAST WAVE BEERS:
Spot Check Golden Ale – 5.1% ABV
Refreshing and approachable, this crisp golden ale builds on a biscuit-like malt backbone with a subtle apricot flavor from the Palisades hops used throughout for a balanced, crushable beer.
A Frame IPA – 6.1% ABV
A juicy IPA that’s lower on the bitterness scale and big on the tropical citrus hop flavor from healthy amounts of Citra and Cascade.
Impact Zone DNEIPA- 7.8%
This Imperial NEIPA goes big releasing torrents of tropical fruit from healthy dose of Strata, Cashmere and Citra.
Right Coast Coconut Porter – 6.5% ABV
A velvety smooth porter that offers up hints of Coconut on the nose and in the finish with a roasty backbone balancing this beer to perfection.
