on tap at the brewery. 5 oz sample in a small glass.

LOOK: Slightly hazy yellow, medium white head.
AROMA: Awesome pine/citrus harmony as I've noticed in other Nelson beers.
TASTE: metallic, citrus, grapefruit
FEEL: A little sticky and thick, but easy drinking.

Nice beer, not executed as well as the Alpine Nelson, but respectable.

Proud to be among the first reviewers of Nelson 07750 (Monmouth Beach - my son's town). This one is at the top of the dubvariants. Carton tripling in size soon, well-deserved. Get to know this brewer. It's the water (and in my home town).

Watch the brewer at http://tedxnavesink.com/project/augie-carton/

Every time I return home to 077xx, I'm surprised by how lucious and juicy their 077 IPAs are. Of course, I can enjoy them on tap and when I buy cans at the brewer they're stamped "Journey began 7 days ago".

Mineral notes due to the hard artesian well water they use. A must try and a great place to visit

A) Light blonde body sports a pure white finger head, that laces dotty and rings the glass.
S) Super fresh, juicy, citrus hops, tropical fruits, along with round fruits of apple and grape, then fruity malts, oranges, and pine.

T) Taste follows the smell. Zests your palate with citrus hops, lemon, apple, white wine, fruit malts, and tropical fruits.
F) Long, lean, peppery, zingy finish. Chewy, creamy, medium bodied DIPA w moderate carbonation. Light bitterness, long finish, and pretty easy to drink. Cleansing, great with food, long, and fresh.

O) Try 24 if you can get it.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Peach colored with a big head, hazy, and great lacing. Hops and fruit dominate a strong aroma. Notes of dank, hop resin, tropical fruit, Meyer lemon, and green grape skin. Medium body, good carbonation but soft on the feel, no hint of the abv and nice dry finish. This is a world class DIPA and the best variant by far. This may be there best beer, this ones a sleeper world better. A great drinking legitimate DIPA.

Traded for this a while ago as the date on the can was even older - it had "Journey Began" over 2/4 on the bottom but amazingly, this still tasted great when I finally had it all these months later. Love the idea of the O77's and this was in line with the others that I was fortunate enough to have so far!

Nice pour to this as the beer had a golden, hazy hue with plenty of head to it and a bit of sediment that settled to the bottom. That had to be because of the age of this beer but the floaties were small and the smell was still fresh - cut grass, booze, and of course, plenty of dry Nelson Sauvin hops. Lots of those were in the taste as well with an underlying blueberry and gooseberries juiciness to accompany the underlying herbal notes and white grape. Medium in body, this beer had a dry but mostly clean finish as the dank and weedy nature of this beer slowly came out in the aftertaste, once the liquid went down.

This was strong but with so much going on here, it's hard to care too much about that! Probably the favorite dubvariant that I've had so far, this was be a hophead's dream as it came across as a distant cousin to Pliny the Elder. No burn here - just a wonderfully complex brew that had all of it's flavors in wonderful proportion. Possibly the best American Double/Imperial IPA brewed in my home state!

Pours a golden-yellow color with a small, stable white head.

Smells of ice-bonbon, wet grass, sun warmed grapes and a cakey, sugar coated maltiness. Provides a flowery note, together with some lemon peel, holding the profound malts in balance.

Has a supersoft, almost smooth mouthfeel with a fitting medium carbonation, getting a little more effervescent during the finish. The carbonation level goes hand in hand with a late, dry lemon peel infusion to chowcase the refreshing, yet complex character of this.

Tastes of orange peel, white bread dough, grape skin, dried garden herbs and toffee malts. Got that ice-bonbon sweetness from the nose mirrored in the flavors, mingling into the sweet malts, which benefit from a late lime dryness, lending a pleasant depth to them. Lemon preveils till the end on the palate, while the sweetness of the malts receed, pointing to a pleasantly dry, long lasting lemony finish.

Very nice iipa, getting continously dryer, the longer it is on the palate. Its initial sweetness gets toned down by the fruity lemon appearance, with a maintaining ice-bonbon sweetness.

Had both on tap at Boyles Tavern (zip code 07750) and in the can. I asked Augie why it's so much better on tap and he denied it. I'd give on tap a 9.5 and in the can 8.75 ratings. Much, much better on tap.

Beautiful dry hopping of Nelson. This is the penultimate Nelson Sauvin IPA. Extremely well done and one of my two favorite Carton beers.

Another variant on Carton's 077 series. A decent, drinkable brew but not something I would seek out. I've had many of the variants and this one is towards the bottom of the list IMO. Nothing bad or wrong here, just didn't do it for me.

The beer comes in a medium gold color.

The aroma hits of gooseberry, white grape, straight up Nelson, fresh grass, a bit of vinous, white grapefruit, bready malt.

The flavor follows with dank resinous and pine throughout, a bit of tropical fruit, grapefruit, pineapple, touch of peach, fresh grass, onto a medium plus bitterness of earthy and pine.

Can dated 8/1. Poured into Belgian ale glass.

L: 3F head with good retention, lacing, cap and ring, Beer is a nice semi-hazy amber.

S: Little bit of the normal dub citrus, but a lot more dank pineyness and some spice.

T: Mostly follows nose, quite piney, earthy, and dank. Peppery finish, not too bitter.

F: Light to medium body, light to medium carbonation, good drying

O: Not my favorite dubvariant, but a good one.

On tap at Cloverleaf Tavern. Excellent rendition of the style. The Nelson Sauvin hop varietal is really showcased in this pungent brew packed with dank, resinous pine flavor that would be a hop head's dream. Great stuff. Recommended.

I sampled this at the brewery. It is a variation on 0077XX. It pours a clear, golden-yellow with a thick, milk-white head and extensive lacing. It smells of grapefruit, pine needles, and some sweeter fruit, including apples and pears. If anything, the taste is an improvement on the odub and it is drier and more bitter. It is medium-bodied, moderately carbonated, and the 7.8% ABV is definitely noticeable. Overall, this is a truly excellent IPA. I wish it were canned but it should be drunk fresh. It's just so good!

Really clean white grape and citrus zest flavors and scents. Clean body that hides any alcohol. Drinks like an IPA not IIPA. Fruity, light, and crisp finish that's slightly dry.

L: clear and gold. a little thin looking. massive head that lingers for a long while.

S: more skewed towards apple, pear, grape, with a little bit of mild fruit juice (like Tropicana orange juice, not acidic OJ). Delicious, complex.

F: creamy goodness.

O: fantastic, easy drinking.

Smell - sneak attack of beautiful full body hop goodness. I literally winced and said "oof" when I popped on open (in a good way). Hold the can at arms length when you open it and you'll still get wailed in the face with floral hops. Sounds.

Taste - right there with 077xx but with a subtle brightness in the front.

This is a damn good beer. This is an IPA that IPA lovers will fawn over, and it's somehow an IPA that non-ipa lovers still like.

This here is the holy grail of double IPA: deep nuanced multi-dimensional flavor and taste with an extra kick. Drinking day of release, canned three days ago. Pours medium to dark amber, slightly hazy. intense waves of danky and flowery aromas hit the nose as soon as you crack open the can. The taste is more of the same and then some: tropical fruit, tart mouth-filling resin, caramel malt, and lingering bittersweet finish. best beer i ever had out of a can.

Amazingly good variation of an already amazing beer. It benefits from the dry-hopped Nelson. It takes the base Odub flavors of hoppy, fruity goodness and amps it up a notch with that dry-hopped bitterness. Great beer!
