Had this a little while back. Poured nice, rich color. Sadly the taste did not live up to the look. There wasn't anything unpleasant about it - some have said it was boozy but not to me. Just nothing about it that would make me seek it out. Would I drink it again if it was in front of me - sure.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Beautiful orange with a thick white fluffy head that fades to leave dotted lace. Aromas are assertive with alcohol heat creeping into the nose. Notes of citrus fruit abound, light mango, piths, peels, little herbal greens and dank with alcohol heat throughout. Higher end of medium body with a coating feel and a semi dry boozy finish. I'm not a fan of high ABV IPAs because there is no hiding the heat, and this ones no exception. That aside its a great beer. I'm going to lay some down and see what happens.

Pours a great gold/Orange with a fluffy head. Smells of citrus, tropical fruit and earthy hints. Taste is pure citrus with some sweeter tropical fruits. Sweet fruits increase as the beer warms. There is a bit of an alcohol burn. Overall, simply fantastic.

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

Hazy appearance with a slightly off white foamy head. Nice lacing as well. Smells terrific, but not overwhelmingly orange-ish, as it's certainly enjoying a citrus thing, but there's just a hint of maybe dandelion in there as well. Something that gives ti a barely earthy edge. Taste is great as well, as there is citrus there, but not much of that onion dankness. Maybe dandelion is prancing back a little. Not too hot despite the high ABV, but the dry finish is a reminder of the alcohol.

Simply awful. I've had moonshine that was less boozy than this. Straight up malt bomb with very few redeeming qualities other than a pleasant appearance. Coming from one of the best breweries around this just doesn't cut it.

12 ounce pour in some weird port-wine looking glass at Whole Food Columbus Circle. Part of a Carton tap takeover from the night before.

Clean-looking beer with nice transparency, carbonation and a light, foamy head.

Smell wasn't a donkey kick of any one thing but it hinted at orange, mango, floral bouquet and such.

Taste was where this was at. I kept getting a load of honeydew melon in my mouth. Like a burlier Yellow Rose. I love Yellow Rose and I liked this. Didn't matter I didn't hardly think orange at all. I just soaked in the alluring honeydew and accompanying sweet, vanilla-lathered notes from the malt. Very tasty.

And it drank excellently. Clean, moderately bitter, hardly hinting at booze. Oddly, I generally find Carton's aromatics shine while the flavor might only sparkle, but there was some sort of role reversal here and I think that's for the best.

I love Other Half, and I love Carton. Sure enough, I checked Other Half's feed recently and saw that this was available at the Brewery...down at Other Half. After two straight nights on the streets of Gotham, I pulled myself out of bed and drove town to Atlantic Highlands on a Sunday. Thankfully I made it down there 20 minutes before close and after taking the "tour" I grabbed a case of this and took a walk down by the water before slowly heading home, eager to give this a go.

Sure enough, this was worth the ride I took while half-awake. The All Green Everything was a good beer but this took that to another level, as I was informed that the recipe for this was similar but with a slightly different profile and orange zest added in for good measure. That made this more juicy, easier to sip, and hid the alcohol well. The latter was my biggest issue with the All Green as it was just too strong for me and while this was just as potent, it didn't feel that way as it went down well for a beer this strong. The taste and favors were enough to mask the potency of this while making it juicy enough to enjoy from start to finish!

This was the epitome of a juice bomb if there ever was one - looked orange, smelled orange, and tasted orange right from the get-go. Very wet and sticky as this tasted like an orange that was squeezed to the death and fermented to the nth degree. The cloudy orange hue and fluffy head only added to the allure of this as there were a few rings of lacing left around the glass that I poured this into, picked up at Carton that fateful Sunday. Sticky and full of resin, this beer was a beast but didn't have the heft that would accompany that as it went down easily for being so strong, as the zest took the harsh edges off of this. Lots of orange peel, with tropical fruits, slightly toasted malt, and caramel-like stickiness found here that gave a good body to this as the carbonation was light but present enough to keep this from feeling too heavy.

Yes, there was alcohol in this and it could be felt long before I worked my way through this can. It's not often that a fruit flavor can take a beer but elevate it but this was one of those instances where the addition of the orange elevated this beer from good to great. Wonderful stuff that showcased the best of both breweries while simultaneously showcasing the potential of a citrus-tasting IPA. Quite possibly the best collaboration I've ever had and worth the ride to Atlantic Highlands. A winner in every aspect!

16 oz can. Pours hazy orange, finger white head has great retention, coating lace. Aroma is a mic of tropical and dark fruit. Taste starts out sweet, ripe tropical fruit, floral and citrus peel hops. You can tell this is a big beer by the rich deep flavor, very little alcohol presence. As it warms, the hops become dank and earthy in the finish. Medium creamy soft mouthfeel. Excellent imperial IPA.

Pours s glowing golden orange honey color with some haziness. Aroma is big citrus. Flavor is a lot of citrus with a touch of citrus peel on the back end. Has a carbonated body to the drink. Overall a really delicious brew.

Nice hazy bright orange good lacing and retention for a 10.5% IPA
Tons of mango citrus orange pineapple in the smell maybe some sweet honey like smell towards the end
Very balanced everything is there all the fruits from the smell with the slightest bitterness to bring it down. Abv is almost unnoticeable.
Nice thick sticky mouthfeel again hides abv well!

Love it. a well hopped IPA with a strong splash of juicy citrus. does not taste like a triple. the alcohol is well masked and this is a smooth drinking beer. the hop flavor and juiciness are balanced. wow this is good. way to rep NJ.

A pint can with no visible date but I trust the incomparable BA known as SammyJaxx that sent me a couple of these.

Look- Pours a rather brilliant and slightly hazy pale orange color with a finger of white foam. It settles leaving a bit of lacing on the glass.

Smell- Grapefruit, passionfruit, orange zest and some mango. It's all there, but not in your grill there.

Taste- Orange zest, grapefruit, mild passionfruit and a touch of floral notes in the finish.

Feel- Rather light and easy drinking with a dry finish.

Overall- A really easy drinking Triple IPA over ten percent. While tropical in flavor, it's not over the top juicy. That's what probably makes this feel 'lighter'. I liked it and would recommend trying it if you get the chance.

Pour is a dark orange, almost copper hazy hue. Nice white foamy head that dissipates quickly. Great retention. Mild floaties.

Nose is citrus and toasty malt foward, getting orange peel, grapefruit, dark burnt toast, and hints of booze. Nothing for the faint of heart or juicy/tropical about this one.

Taste is pretty big on following the nose. Some orange, grapefruit, hints of dark fruit like plums and cherries. Packs a hop resin punch and some booziness.

The mouthfeel is what separates this. Very thick and oily hop resin coats the palate. Oily and thick mouthfeel. Body of a stout.

Had this bottle along with many others of its caliber for a small group tasting and it was definitely a solid IPA! 2 great breweries that are killing it!

16oz tallboy, sample from the brewery.

Can sat in the fridge for several days before opening, last ounce of beer was a bit of slurry but what was poured into my glass looks pretty damn amazing. Bright orange golden hue, lacing is pretty epic to watch. Dank and citrusy nose, alcohol and toasty malt backing in there as well. Palate is the same, tastebuds are please with the balance even with this bit take on even and Double IPA. Great job with this collab.

L: dull copper. Slight haziness on my first pour. When I emptied the can I got snow globe.

S: like toasted coconut and granola. Toast. Get some citrus zest.

T: clementine, orange, coconut flakes, floral notes. This thing is delicious. Not a hint of alcohol. Smooth sailing.

F: full bodied. Not as creamy as I would like from this style.

O: totally dope. An interesting variation to AGE with which this shares DNA. Bursting with fruit juices, but in a more controlled way than some of the NE IPA cousins. Totally drinkable, totally delicious.

I am torn between 4.25 and 4.5 and for this variety it is probably closer to a 5. However, my palate gravitates towards a more crisper/more carbonated mouth feel which at this abv it is more moderate. With this said, smooth as a baby's behind and pure ganja juice. So, probably one the best I've had and will not hesitate to kick back more. Thank Carton & Other Half for a stellar collab! Cheers!

Purchased on release day so it's as fresh as possible. Poured from 16 oz. can into Carton IPA glass. It pours a hazy, tangerine-orange color with a one-finger, milk-white head and lacing and lots of floaters in the glass. It smells of orange peel, tangerine, grapefruit, and floral hops. The first taste I experienced was the citrus: orange peel, tart grapefruit, and a hint of tangerine and tropical fruit on the tip of the tongue. That is followed by an explosion of dank hops, with a dry, bitter finish. There is a discernible alcohol burn. I don't think my taste buds do this one justice! This ale is medium in body, moderate in carbonation, and its 10.5% ABV packs a punch (you won't confuse it with Boat!). Overall, this is a superb Imperial IPA conceived by two of the finest craft brewers around. It's one of the best IPA's I've ever had. If it weren't so boozy, I could drink it all afternoon.
