BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States
cartonbrewing.com

Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Like all things truly Jersey, 077XX makes the most in balancing through its accentuation of extremes. Inspired by the west coast IPAs we love, we added a thump of hops to a dynamic malt profile and chose a yeast to drive these two further than they wanted to go. Throw our water into this mix and you will find dank green resinous hops popping over orange, mango and papaya aromas, with just enough sweetness of body to make the long finish a pleasure to have around. Drink 0’Dub when your night matters.

A gorgeous, hazy burnt orange on an aggressive pour with a dense light tan head, this is the picture I have in mind when I think “DIPA.” The nose has some resiny notes, but the tropical aromas noted on the can (orange, mango, and papaya) are more prominent. And there is a pronounced malt component. Oh yes, most pronounced.

A healthy pull from the glass introduces the participants that will be dancing on the palate - the tropical fruit flavors and the substantial malt. They’re in perfect balance - hop assault up front, smoothing malt for a slow, smooth finish.

This is world-class, IMHO.

I don't get all the high ratings here? Bought a 4 pack and had one last night. To me, it's "okay" but nothing special or great in the least. Tastes like a middle of the road IPA at best, and that's being kind and generous. I should have rated it lower given that its $10.99.

Canned 3 weeks ago.

Pours semi-hazy orange with a persistent finger of white head.

The nose is subtle. Orange, black tea, herbal hops, and some cattiness.

The taste is mostly tangerine and herbal tea, with some sweet malt and subtle mango. Well balanced.

The mouthfeel is medium. Carbonated and crisp but full mid-palate.

Overall, solid. Not blowing me away but pretty enjoyable.
