"Carton Brewing Company" is my local brewery in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey, near my home. Their flagships cover the DIPA and the session IPA (Boat Beer) wonderfully. Mineral notes due to the hard artesian well water they use. A must try and a great place to visit.
I've enjoyed 077xx from cask, can, growler, and tap.
a - Pours a murky apricot amber with 2 fingers of fluffy white head, moderate carbonation, lots of lacing evident.
s - Super fresh and enjoyable - the joy of a home town brewer! Smells of citrus hops, tropical fruits, fruity malts, oranges, and lots of pine.
t - Taste follows the smell. It's almost puckering as it zests your palate with citrus hops, lemon, oranges, fruit malts, and tropical fruits. Long, lean, peppery, zingy finish.
m - Light to medium bodied DIPA w moderate carbonation. Light bitterness, long finish, and pretty easy to drink. Cleansing, great with food, long, and fresh.
o - Great nose. Great to have such a great, and growing, home town brewer.

Got a keg from the brewery for the house.
Poured from the kegerator, deep opaque golden orange. Prominent white head that holds up well and leaves fantastic lacing throughout.
Nose is dominated by assorted tropical fruits; mango, peach, pineapple, and tangerine come to mind. A bit of piney hop mid-nose. Malty backbone is detectable but not too strong. So far so good.
Taste follows aroma more or less. Definitely getting peach and mango. A bit more pine in the taste than the smell. Again the malt is there to kind of just say hi. Very well balanced IPA.
A bit thin on the palate, but sticky. Aftertaste is piney that lingers nicely. Carbonation is great.
I had this beer for the first time right after I turned 21. I don't remember caring for it. But today this beer is a definite winner. Very good Jersey IPA, I think this is is a runner up to Head High.
