growldog from joe canals on rt 1 woody bridge
whoa dog.. about a 3 finger 70s white muff happening here, soap and it barely moves when I shimmy the glass 'round, hazy straw with some lazy dna strands of carbonation writhing up the top in some weird summation of perpetual motion, retention and lacing are currrazy nice here, solid brew in the looks dept.
hmm.. definitely a bit different, sort of a caramel-y pine ? if there is such a thing? very heavy peach tones... this is throwing me for a DIPA... but after all the hop nukes passing this nose it is cool to see (smell?) something unique, I can not say I love it but it is different.
this is not a palette destroyer but there is some really nice fresh hop bitters directly on the tongue, but it does not leave the huge back of the mouth bitters like most DIPAs... which makes this a touch tamer (as is the ABV). it drinks pretty light but after a few swigs the ABV does make an appearance with some warming in the ole beer storage tank attached to this here torso, this seems to gain bitterness as you go on, it is in the pine variety which can almost border on pinesol flavor .. but it just dodges that bullet, the carbonation is a bit lacking in the overall presentation in the mouth which makes this not as drinkable as some DIPAs...
the bitterness is here, but it is missing something, not bad at all but not great.

Appearance - Pours a solid light gold almost orange.
Smell - complex hop aroma with hints of citrus and pine on the end.
Taste - Light upfront hops start to come in strong as they have a very strong finish lingering on the palate afterwards. Pine and Citrus linger.
Mouthfeel - Light mouthfeel froward then going into more of a fully hopped flavor mouthfeel into the finish.
Overall- I sat down and compared heady topper to 07XX. both amazing i their own way. Carton makes some amazing beers and they are to watch out for in the future, so happy they are in my home state!

On tap in Hoboken, NJ. 16oz pour in pint glass
A- Very light for a double IPA, almost looked like a single.
S- Citrus fruits and stone fruits on the nose via some amazing combo of hops
T- Big citrus hop flavors, finishing with a bit of apricot or necterine. Very drinkable and great flavor profile.
M- Good overall mouth feel, pretty standard for an IIPA
O- Great beer, happy to be able to try while visiting a buddy in Hoboken. Only thrown off by the color of this beer.
