BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States

Style: American Double / 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.

On draft in a tulip glass

Slightly hazy golden color. White head, some lacing. Nice hop aroma - mix of citrus - orange and grapefruit. Just enough bready malt flavor to balance the hops, only slightly bitter. Softer mouthfeel, a touch oily. Nice aftertaste.

On tap at Cloverleaf Tavern. One of the best beers to come out of Jersey in a while. A true-to-the-style IPA packed with a punch of hops and lemon zest. Strong hints of grapefruit on the nose and tongue as well. Tropical flavors also apparent. Great stuff. Recommended.

Two pours from a 16 oz can (packaged 8/1) into a goblet. Light orange-yellow, just a shade darker than straw, with good clarity and about 1/4" head. Loads of citrus in the smell: grapefruit and orange, in rind-y, essential-oily, and juicy gradations, passionfruit, and a hint of lean, sweet malt as well. Really rich and complex in flavor, berry-like sweetness balanced with wave on wave of citrus and a firm but balanced bitterness. Having read that O-dub originated with an experimental batch of Boat, I feel as though I can detect the Boat DNA in there: something about how the initial punch of hops emerging from a clean base and giving way to layers of flavors. Surprisingly lean and light-bodied. Fantastic double IPA.

Great fruity aromas... Nice pop in its hops presentation. Smooth mouth feel. Aroma faded quickly but the taste made up for it. Ibu is 80 but seems higher because of the 7.8 alc value... Which you can notice.

Poured from a tallboy into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, straw gold coloring with a filmy, low profile, clingy, white head. Aromas of bright citrus and tropical fruit notes, juicy and tart, with solid pine pitch and resinous hops profiles. Very well balanced nose. Flavors are dank and sticky resin, pine pitch, moss, and wet grass forward, followed immediately by tart grapefruit and orange, then by a more mild bolt of tropical fruit. The end of the palate transitions into a slightly acidic, slightly cloying, still resinous blend that lingers on into the aftertaste. The body is smooth and big, but with a dry backbone and crisp, effervesced finish. Very good, and extremely drinkable for a DIPA. Bold flavors on a crisp, balanced body. Huzzah!

a: slightly hazy amber/straw yellow color with a 1 finger marshmellow-like white frothy head

s: mango, pineapple, slightly onion-y with some lemongrass and bready malts towards the back end. there is a nice earthy bitterness in the aroma as well. smells very crisp and clean

t: taste has a little bit of juicy pineapple upfront, which is then followed by a huge onion/garlic presence. behind that i'm picking up some apricot, and sweet citrus zest. there is a pretty strong grapefruit bitterness in here as well that acts as the backbone to the beer. there is a faint dry cracker malt presence towards the end as well, but not a whole lot of sweetness coming from the malts

m: medium mouthfeel. carbonation is about 5 out of 10 - the perfect amount. though, i will admit the mouthfeel is a tad light for a DIPA - i'm used to a heavier, almost syrupy mouthfeel.

o: the can says 7.8%, but i can't taste that in here at all. its got a solid kick of bitterness, with just enough fruity hops so that its not overwhelming. in addition to being extremely tasty, its quite refreshing as well and i'm finding the liquid disappearing from the glass at a rapid rate. overall, this is a very solid beer and a definite recommend. only comment i really have is that the mouthfeel is a tad light for a DIPA in my book

Slightly opaque, deep golden pour with an orange hue. Ample white head with decent retention. The aroma is dank, resinous, mango, citrus. The taste follows with great malt backbone. Body is medium-light with moderate-high carbonation. Moderately bitter, dry finish. Excellent DIPA.
