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.

The beer comes in a light orange color.

The aroma explodes of mangoes, kumquat, bready malt, and melon.

The flavor follows of fresh tropical fruit, orange peel, melon, lots of grapefruit, and then a drying and medium bitterness of grapefruit peel on the finish.

A truly exceptional IPA that is defined by new age hops.

This beer is a beast! what an awesome offering from Carton. The beer rivals Abrasive and is a hidden gem in the crowded field of DIPA's. Hop blast with a very slight malt backbone. An incredible beer that leaves you wanting another. If your a DIPA man this is a must have. The appearance is a bit murky ( like BOAT beer ) but in the end I will take this anytime.

Bottom Line: Nears legendary status!
