The Exit Series of beers is a multi-year brewing experiment to brew a series of beers as diverse as the great state of New Jersey. These big beers-in size as well as flavor-will celebrate each exit of the state-long artery that connects us. Each beer will focus on a unique aspect of an individual exit.
Rice helps the beer ferment dry to better showcase the five different hops we added. Lots and lots of them. We then dry-hopped this Double IPA with even more-generous additions of Chinook and Citra hops to create a nose that hints at tangerine, mango, papaya and pine.

|Flying Fish is located in Somerdale, New Jersey. In a state that once boasted 50 breweries (and by the end of 2015 may once again boast that number), it was the first microbrewery in Southern New Jersey and the first new brewery built in that part of the state in more than half a century. From its opening in late 1996, Flying Fish has increased its capacity more than 20x and become the largest of the ever-growing number of craft breweries in the state.
