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.

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.

Canned 2/15/18.

Borders on hazy and west coast gold, with a finger of creamy Guinness-like head.

Aromas of clean water, baked grains, and piney hops. Slight tangerine and grapefruit aromas.

Taste is very very bitter with solvent-like qualities. Bitter grapefruit rind, pine oil, slight tangerine pith. Finish is doughy, with hair spray, solvent, and lemon dish soap. Perceptible IBU's are very high.

Feel is crisp and clean, very watery, with some oils resting on the palate. Definitely not juicy, not smooth, not creamy. Like a light overhopped lager.

Overall, I'm guessing this was an attempt at a west coast IIPA which generally I don't mind if it's done well. What's really stupid is that it still says "East Coast Double IPA". And while it's a west-coast style IPA they did it very poorly. It's not juicy or bright, has very high bitterness and perceptible IBU, with some odious grain notes and lots of solvent. A major disappointment. Will not try again.

Pours a very slightly hazed yellow orange with a thin white head.
Smells a bit grassy/floral, orange pith. Some sweet malt and a bit of alcohol coming through too.
Tastes similiar, I get the grassiness up front, there is a bit of musty onion that I didn't get on the nose(gotta be some Simcoe or maybe Amarillo in here), finishes with a citrus pith bitterness. Alcohol presence without any heat.
Medium bodied, good carb, slightly dry finish.
Overall a great beer, glad I have a couple other ones in the fridge

Aggressive pour yields a modest finger of just off-white foam, even surface although the lack of retention upsets that quickly enough, conversely the lacing while thin all but fully coats the glass and sticks like glue. The liquid is more filmy than cloudy, golden to slightly rust water in look, extremely tiny bubbles furtively scurry now and then. The nose leaps out at you with well toasted country bread, pretzel notes and both a salty and peppery edge, enough so to marginalize the florality and mixed white citrus, while you never doubt it’s there the white pit fruit easily pushed aside, you could say it’s aggressive to a fault. Full-bodied, curiously drier during the attack and then sweetens up and feels wetter through the finish. Grainy and peppery yet here it’s more balanced with honey, caramel, pine sap and tea leaf on hand. Likewise the mango, peach, guava fruit more resonant. More damp leafy matter than bright cut grass. The carbonation accords itself better than expected but can’t call it creamy, stays angular. It comes across like a lot of thought was put into it. You have to like a beer that doesn’t back down and is more interested in what it has to say than whether or not you want to hear it. (Canned 2/15/18)
