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. 077-07302 is the Dubviant tuned up with an exclusive Warrior third dry hop inspired by the places that get it in Jersey City. Warrior backs up 0’dub’s mix of dank resins and tropical fruits with fills of citrus, pine, and herbs. Drink 077-07302 and jam down that dank path.

Thanks to SammyJaxxx for this one. 16oz can poured into 10oz goblet. Canned on 9/29/16 (ooopsie! a bit late getting to this one). Poured a hazy medium yellow-gold color with about 1/3 inch of white head that had low-moderate retention and medium lace.

Aroma was hop forward, and had a bit of cattiness/skunk, with a nice malt background. Pretty similar on the taste side of things, earthy malts and bright hops.

Body was light medium, and fit this beer well. There was a mostly dry finish, with a slightly sweet note in the background. Drinkability was pretty good, and likely would have been great had I gotten to it in a timely manner (in my defense, he sent me a huge box, and I had BIF beers to drink, and my regular local drinking patterns to maintain, I'm only one drinker!), and would like to try it again. Overall, a pretty nice brew, one that's worth your time if yousee it, and is likely worth a bit of effort to obtain.

one of the best Odubs. Juicy, dank, fresh, delicious, snagged a 4 pack. Try 24.

A) Pours a hazy bright orange-amber body with a 2 finger white head, retains well and leaves a good amount of lacing.

S) The aroma is GRASSY, dank and piney with a hemp and peppery finale.

T) The flavor follows the nose with lots of bitter pine, grass, hay, and lemon. Finishing spicy and bitter and clean.

F) The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Clean lingering bitterness, makes it a great appetizer.

O) COULD be the best Odub?

Fresh can purchased at brewery. Served in Carton IPA glass. It pours rich, golden-honey color with one finger of milk-white head and lacing with good retention. It smells of grass, pine needles, orange peel, grapefruit, and floral hops. The primary taste is dank pine, grapefruit, some sweeter, tropical fruit, and bitter, biting Warrior hops. This ale is medium-bodied, pleasantly carbonated, and with the standard O'Dub 7.8% ABV it is substantive-but not overwhelming. Overall, this may be my second favorite Dubviant, after 07871. It is outstanding, and even better when fresh! I may have to move to Atlantic Highlands!

It has a juicy east coast feel with very minimal bitterness. But in color, it's a crystal clear gold with amazing head. Almost too fine in carbonation. Slick and oily body. Piney aroma, rain coated spruce trunk that is freshly notched; tropical berries maybe some pineapple. Taste follows with earth and herbs, lemon rind, pear, grape peel.

Yet another 0'Dub variant that I traded for and finally got to this week. Excited to try this after the others that I've had but this one was just a bit underwhelming to me. It had the nice body and juicy mouthfeel that I liked but the dankness and balance wasn't here as the dry-hopped aspect of the Warrior hops was just a bit too much here to let everything else shine through.

The pour to this was good as the beer was golden, hazy, and had very small floaties suspended throughout it. Not a strong aroma to this as there was lots of melon and cantaloupe pith here, with even more in the taste. Dry-hopped, pithy, and moderately juicy, this needed a shot of water as a chaser after each sip. Too much an herbal mouthfeel as this felt like earl grey tea that had somehow gone old. Not feeling the citrus or pine here as there was more of a lemon zest feel to this. Just enough carbonation here to keep this from feeling too heavy while allowing the flavors to linger, a bit longer than I would have liked...

Once again, the alcohol was strong enough here but not to the point where it could be felt before everything else kicked in. While not a bad beer, this didn't measure up to the other variations that I've had thus far. However, it did taste fresh for being canned on 3/24 with the usual "Start @44F" written above it. Worth a go if you want to have all of these of love Carton but this wouldn't be the first 0Dub that I'd reach for if I had a choice!
