16oz tallboy can, sample from the brewery.

Firm two fingers of head, lots of lacing action. Nearly clear with a hazy pale amber color. Slightly dank hop nose with suggestions of grapefruit rind, green tea, pine sap, star fruit, & pink peppercorn. Just enough crispness, a little chewy. Good malt foundation, its needed as the onslaught of hops is hefty. Big range of hop flavor, bitterness is no overwhelming though its still assertive. Good balance with letting the hops steal the show at the same time is not an easy place to land for any brewer. Lovin this brew.

Canned 10/3/17

Dull orange color and extremely clear until 2nd pour empties the bottom of the can.

Typical citrus hop smell and even maybe a bit minty. Faint malt background.

First taste is a little sweet with orange juice tang. Vanilla cream sweetness. Combo resembles a creamsicle. Subtle bitterness. Citrus fades away a little and opens up more bitterness than sweetness.

Sort of thin body and lower end of medium carbonation. Some lingering bitterness.

Above average IPA but I'm not overly impressed with this being my 2nd beer from Carton. It's done well but nothing really stands this one out for me. I don't pick up the dankness overly advertised on the can

Tall can...1/7/17

Lightly hazed, typical looking almond amber. Nice showing of fine film, thin collar and scattered lacing...Quality look to this brew

Juicy hopped up nose, I mostly get fruit.

This is a heavily hopped up brew, with all sorts of fruity/tropical notes being squeezed out of every hop fibre...pineapple all over this one and I like it....fresh and tasty...well worth a try

Pours clear, orange-tan in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is big orange with starfruit, pine and biscuit. Medium-heavy bodied, slightly bitter, with moderate carbonation. Makes for a solid DIPA. I prefer others in the style, but I would not turn this down.

16 ounce can into a snifter.

Pours deep copper with blonde hues and almost zero head. Some lace develops.

Lovely aroma. Pungent and sweet and juicy pineapple and passionfruit. Cartons really captures a great aroma with consistency.

Taste continues the juiciness but more mangocentric. But hell there's pineapple and passionfruit and other tropical fruit species in abundance as well. It's just a restrained offering of these flavors, but still tasty. Touches of pine and grass creep in and a touch of toasted bread.

This drinks well. Medium body with a late-palate carbonation tickle and some dry bitterness to finish things. Smooth and easy to drink. If it's a DIPA that's news to me.

on tap at griffon gastropub. lacy. yes there were hops, yes its the style, but it simply tastes rather plain. Pales in comparisons to all the other good hoppy beers around.

1 Pint can without freshness dating, coded "[email protected] (illegible)EY", contract brewed by Two Roads Brewing Co.
$4.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: Oh boy, another cloudy IPA. It's got a nice creamy head of white though. The body is orange in color. It smells like a proper IPA with citrusy and piney notes. It's not what I'd call "dank" but that seems to be what they were going for based on the label. Nor is the nose really that bold, it's OK, but I've tasted pale ales that were brighter. Moving on to the flavor... more "dankness" there, and some nice fruitiness. The label states that they've used "multiple yeasts" which is kind of unusual, but the yeasty fruitiness is nice. It's got notes of apple, berries, and cherry to it - keep in mind though, not unlike the aroma it's not that bold, you're not going to go "oh, it tastes like cherry", no, it's just a subtle component of the yeastiness. The maltiness isn't really that bold either, it's nicely biscuity but nothing more. It makes a good base for the heavy hops, which are probably the stand out point for it. They're less citrusy than the nose suggested, but still piney, and very earthy, herbal, and spicy. It's got a solid bitterness and it finishes dry with dusty earth, dried herbs, and spiciness lingering. Looking back I've got a solid sheet of lace rising from the liquid level all the way up to where the head initially started, and I still have a complete, creamy surface covering. Nice. If I forgive it's clarity, which I'll have to because "haze is the rage", it scores a 4.25 and maybe even a 4.5 for appearance. Back to the liquid itself, the body is medium and it's gently crisp and then smooth across the tongue. No faults there either, in fact it's a really solid beer all around. There are other beers like it so no points for creativity, but it's really well done. Worth trying.

Damn that's a lot of hops. It's a floral and apricot aroma. That fruit carries into the flavor, along with peach, but it turns spicy and dry in the finish. There's a subtle green, earthy aroma and a little standard grapefruit. This is a big, bold West Coast style IPA.

L: Clear copper with a creamy white head. Long retention, and sheets of lacing.

S: Caramel, toast, pine, weed, green vegetables, orange peel, grapefruit pith.

T: Yellow grapefruit, pith, orange zest, brown bread, toffee, woody/tree bark notes, pine needles, skunky weed. Malty-sweet upfront and in the middle, and then an intense lingering bitterness.

F: Medium-plus, well-carbonated, creamy and well-rounded, lightly dry with a sticky resinous finish.

O: A perfect old-school dank IPA.
