BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
077XX is our double IPA focused on harmonizing the extremes inherent in the nature of an American double IPA for long-term drinkability. 077-07006 is the Dubviant tuned up with an exclusive Sorachi Ace third dry hop inspired by the places that get it in Caldwell. Sorachi takes lead bringing 0’dub’s mix of dank resins and tropical fruit tunes down a pithy lemon path. Drink 077-07006 when a little zest is in order.

A pint can dated 4/14 poured in my 13oz. tulip for the taste.

Look- Pours a semi cloudy dark gold with a finger of egg white foam.

Smell- Grapefruit, floral notes and cheese.

Taste- Floral flavor up front followed by grapefruit and a hint of spice in the finish.

Feel- Slick and resiny with a bitter dry end.

Overall- A good beer but probably my least favorite from Carton thus far. While quite easy drinking for a DIPA, it leans more towards the floral and spicy side which doesn't do it for me.

Murky orange with about a finger's worth of beige-ish head gives this I e a nice little appearance.

Nose pops a brilliant menagerie of earthiness (twang of funk), copper and wild flowers.

Taste pulls in with an earthy, gritty quality before big time dandelion follows up before a dash of heat.

Finish is dry, bitter and completely lacking sweetness despite a nice malt balancing act. Another great and complex beer for me today - yay me!

On tap at Cloverleaf Tavern. Excellent IPA dominated by a strong hop backbone with superb flavors of tangerine and lemon zest. I was thoroughly impressed by this brew. Easily drinkable. Recommended.
