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.

Look is a slightly hazy yellow with a frothy white head.

Aroma honey blossom floral with a light sweet biscuit malt.

Taste is a great mix of herbal bitter with a light sweet sugar cookie.

Such a goodbalanced IPA.

16 oz can. Pours hazy golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and tropical fruit. Body is full and crisp. Herbal hops dominate the palate with bready malt and tropical fruit in the background. Finish is long and very hoppy. Excellent brew.

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

Pours a fairly clear orange with soft, fine foam that leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell is citrusy and floral, with notes of lemon rind as well as some pine.

Taste is piney and citrusy, underpinned by a delicate, crackery base. The substantial bitterness is held in check very nicely by the malty backbone, very well balanced.

Mouthfeel is medium and sticky, well carbonated.

Overall, a really nice, balanced IPA.

Dark orange in body with white head that stays. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon, grass, some pine. Tastes of citrus, lemon, grass, mild grapefruit towards the finish, and some big bitterness. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Pours a translucent orange that looks fiery and sharp like a DragonBall. Translucency drops to a light fog when the final ounces are poured into the glass. Head is two fingers of pillowy off-white foam that retains well, leaving behind a few strings of lacing. Aroma is orange, tangerine, and papaya with dry nutty, biscuity malts. Flavor profile is papaya, tangerine, mango, and orange with a light zest from lemon and orange. Nutty malts are abundant, with a dry taste, almost like a big scoop of peanut butter with no glass of water. Biscuity, toasty malts add a little extra firmness for the zesty citrus. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a lightly grainy, silty texture. Overall, a lovely double IPA. Malts are pronounced, balancing out the zesty, sweet hops well. There is a little hop stickiness that resides on the tongue, with the malts drying out underneath. Lovely beer.

Served in a 15.5oz tulip from a 16oz can.

16 ounce can dated 10/24/18. Pours a dirty orange, with reddish highlights, Head of at least 1/2” with really good layers of lacing.
Nose is Citrus, mandarin orange, honey, pineapple and earthy/herbal qualities.
Taste is grapefruit , danky, grassy, pine, mango, guava. Fairly bitter and earthy.
Big body but the alcohol is hidden well.
Not your typical DIPA and that’s a good thing. Overall, an enjoyable NJDIPA without ddh on the label.

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.
