Style: American Double India Pale Ale
Quick Hits: Pine, citrusy, resinous
Description: Big, bright, balanced DIPA. Notes of citrus, tropical fruit, and fresh grass, balanced by a substantial malt backbone and pleasant bitterness.
The Story: 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.
Long-time Night Shift fans may remember the days when we packaged this beer in 750ml bottles. Once cans were in the mix, we knew The 87 was destined for a 4-pack. These tall boys are available year-round at our Taproom, and if you grab a glass at the bar, you can officially drink The 87 at 87.
