From 10/08/11 notes. I was at a bar in Red Bank (forget the name but it's relatively new and a block from Count Basie Theatre) with a pretty good beer selection, and noticed a tap handle that said "Carton Brewing Company". Having never heard of the brewery, I began talking to the bartender who told me it was a new local brewery in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey, and that this was their Double IPA, and that it was "about 8%". I asked him if it had a specific name, but he said it was just sold to them as their Double IPA. Served in a pint glass.a
a - Pours a murky orange amber color with one finger of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of citrus hops, tropical fruits, fruity malts, oranges, and light pine hops. Loads of fresh citrus hops and tropical fruits, and really fresh an enjoyable.
t - Tastes of citrus hops, lemon, oranges, fruit malts, and light tropical fruits again. Not quite as hoppy as the nose, but still very enjoyable.
m - Medium bodied DIPA and moderate carbonation. No real bitterness, and pretty easy to drink.
o - Overall I really liked this DIPA, especially the nose. Lots of fresh hops and fruit, I'd love to have this one again. The next day I saw a different Carton beer at the growler station of a local beer store, and wish I had grabbed it. Not sure how long this brewery has been around for yet, but a great start and I look forward to trying more beers from them.
EDIT: The name of this beer is "077XX" and the ABV is 7.9% ABV.

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.
