Notes/Commercial Description:
Like all things truly Jersey, 077XX makes the most in balancing through its accentuation of extremes. Inspired by the west coast IPA's we love, we added a thump of hops to a dynamic malt profile and chose a yeast to drive these two further than they wanted to go. Throw our water into this mix and you will find dank green resinous hops popping over orange, mango and papaya aromas, with just enough sweetness of body to make the long finish a pleasure to have around. A double IPA perfect for adding fuel to the fire of a dinner, a game, or an idea, drink it when your night matters.

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.

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.
