16oz. can into a Heady Topper stemless snifter.

Nose is citrus, cane sugar, pine and grass. Pretty mellow out this point. Flavor is citrus, pine, grass and papaya. A light hop resin bitterness towards the end that dries out nicely. Really drinkable. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and juicy on the palate and goes down soft and dry. Sticky, resiny finish. Excellent!

Super drinkable and flavorful, 07747 is a great example of the New England IPA stlye. That being said, you have to be near flawless to stand out in the DIPA style and this doesn't. Still, well worth trying if you can get your hands on it.

Pours a cloudy golden straw color with a 1-finger white head. Leaves some pretty solid lacing as the head dissipates.

The aroma is extremely piney and resiny, with a significant amount of grapefruit. I also get just a touch of peach and pineapple.

The taste follows the nose. Grapefruit, pine resin, dank ass hops, and some sweet peach and mango flavors on the back end. Very bitter, but decently balanced.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes lightly dry and leaves a ton of lingering bitterness.

Overall, a very good DIPA. It's bitter as an old Vietnam vet but still has some tropical sweetness to balance things out. The bitterness lingers a bit too long after each sip, but other than that, this is a great beer.

Looks plenty fine with it's sassy foamy head and clear pale orangey yellowness. Lacing comes across as disinterested despite participation.

Nose is juicy tangerine with a little zesty lemongrass hints around the edges.

Taste mimics the nose, but brings out a touch more grassiness, which allows the tongue piercing bitterness a few distractions.

Medium bodied and darn dry on finish, despite being well balanced with a hint of caramel malts, there's not a bit of aftertaste here - sweet or otherwise. This big beer isan adventure and quickly becomes a phantom.

16oz can dated 6/2/16. Beautiful golden body with a wispy white head that clings to the glass on the way down. The light, fruity aroma belies that dankness that awaits. Taste opens light and fruity but the finish is extra dry, sticky, piney and weed. Tasty brew with great layers of flavor.

Pounder can poured into a pint appears a hazy golden pale color with white cap.

Aroma has a carbonic bite, sulfur and slight fruity hops. There is a bit of cheesy hop smell to this. As it warms it has a soapy thing about it.

Taste has some mineral character and pithy bitterness somewhat rindy. Very mild fruited hop character and straw-like husky grain without any residual sweetness.

Light in body, modest carbonation. Not bad but not that good either.

This is by far the best of the 077 series. This thing is very juicy and very tropical. I had it on tap and drank it from the can. I can say that this one taste almost the same ffrom a can and a tap! I can't wait for this one to get back into the rotation

Canned on 6/2/2016. Poured into IPA glass. It pours a hazy, light golden-amber color with orange tint, with one finger of fluffy, snow white head and extensive lacing that did not dissipate during the pour. It smells of dank, floral hops, pine needles, grapefruit, tangerine, and a whiff of sweet tropical fruit. This ale is super dank, bitter, and hoppy with hints of tangerine and peach. It finishes quite dry and bitter. It is medium-bodied, pleasant carbonation, and very easy to drink @7.8% ABV. Overall, this is a hop-lovers delight. It's light, dry, and refreshing. It would pare well with seafood or good to drink on its own. As I drink it, I'm craving a bucket of steamers. 07747 is another outstanding Dubviant from Carton.

Another outstanding Dubviant.

This was another 0'Dub variant that I traded for for a while back and finally got around to this week. I wasn't able to taste the peach in this but it felt grassier than the other ones that I had this week and this seemed like the most "typical" of the bunch to me, as it fell right in the middle of the pack in terms of the taste and how drinkable this was from start to finish.

The pour to this was nearly similar to all of the others, as the appearance was dank and golden to accompany a long-lasting head. Just a bit of sediment could be seen at the top of the liquid after each sip but this didn't feel old or skunked at all. Lots of grass and some tobacco in the nose with a bit of stone fruit and some dankness. A bit more pine and resin in the taste with stone fruit and a lot of grass thrown in for good measure. Moderately carbonated with a dry back end, the peach was very faint in the aftertaste as the other flavors lingered long enough to overpower it.

Of course, the booze was right on target and couldn't be detected during my session. Though the canning date was 6/2 and was written below the usual text of "Start @44F", this tasted just as lively and fresh as the other variants. A solid beer that featured the Galaxy hop nicely while not being too dry at the same time. Easily worth a go once.

From a can dated 6/2/16 into a Tulip.

What can I say? It's Odub dry hopped with Galaxy.

Grapefruit, resinous dankness, then peach on the back end.

I could drink this all day long, wonderful brew.

Cheers!

Big thanks to JJM21231 for this awesome extra.

Settles as a slightly hazy orange-golden body with a soapy off-white head. Aroma is mainly tropical fruits; pineapple, mango, lots of citrus. Flavor follows with tropical fruits up front, citrus zest in the middle along with some grassy notes and hints of bitterness towards the end. Feel is sticky, medium carbonation, slight prickle, medium bodied. Really nice beer overall.

Deep orange, hazy, medium size white head and great lacing. Very strong hoppy and dank aroma. Notes of light tropical fruit, dank, under ripe stone fruits, pine, and a bit of pepper. Medium body, good bite but smooths out, finish is clean and dry with nice hoppy linger. No hint of alcohol. Another world class variant of an amazing DIPA.
