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. A double IPA perfect for adding fuel to the fire of a dinner, a game, or an idea, drink it when your night matters.

Itís easier to point out the flaws here than sing the praises. The hop profile simply isnít interesting. There is a great deal of flavor here and it is well balanced but itís just ordinary.

What a beer. The citrus quality of this DIPA is insane and it blends well with some more subtle pine tones that come out in the initial sip; it is quickly overpowered with some pretty intense grapefruit notes. The malt bill is kinda thin; iíd say the ratio is ALMOST perfect, if the malt was just a TINY bit more present this would be upper-echelon type stuff. As it is, itís still fantastic and makes me so happy to be a New Jersey native - the fact I can get this about whenever I want makes me tear up a little. Very close to the perfect DIPA. Not much makes me proud to be from Jersey, so thank you Carton for giving me something!

Handsome pour yields a decent amount of head which retains in clumps. Can smell those earthy hops from a few feet away. More earthy notes than fruity or juicy, and the hearty bite of bitterness at the end is a big turnoff for me.

Pretty good overall, clearly well made, yet a bit too much resin on the finish for my tastes.

This is the best IPA Iíve had in a while. So hoppy, very enjoyable IPA. the color, aroma, taste, and taste in relation to ABV make this one really stad out to me.

BMMillsy (1432) - Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Trade extra. Awesome! Can pours hazy golden with a half finger white head on top. Really nice fresh floral aroma, grassy, some citrus, raw hops, lightly sweet malts in the backdrop. Flavor starts with a big punch if bitter pine up front leading to a funky grassy hop note on top of lightly sweet malts and a nice small bit of tropical fruits. Really crisp and clean, dangerously drinkable for a supposed DIPA, plus carbonation and slightly dry body. Scores here seem to underrate this one. This is excellent!

jbruner (2356) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Can thanks to trade with jdb288! Pours a cloudy golden yellow with fluffy offshore head that lays and leaves good lace. Aroma is resinous citrus hops, dank, catty, with a nice malty back end. Taste is more balanced, the malt coffees through nicely. Bittersweet finish, no booziness. Very sold dipa, would definitely drink often if available locally.

boxofrane (2144) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Draft at the pourhouse. Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a ton of grapefruit, pine, floral notes, sweet orange juice. The taste has a delicious grapefruit juice, tons of residual bitterness, finishes balanced. Really nice.

ScipioA (313) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Pour is a slightly hazed yellow tinged with copper. Tan head quickly fades away. The aroma is pine and orange hops but dominated by alcohol. Flavor is a little heavy on the alcohol, but some melon, apricot and malt sweetness join in as well. Too much alcohol in the flavor and aroma, surprising and unwelcome at 8% abv. Heavy and thick mouthfeel is great, finish is maybe a little too dry. Pretty disappointing DIPA.

b3shine (5574) - Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2014
16 oz can to snifter (thanks Dogbones). Looks good; a very cloudy (almost opaque) golden orange with foamy white head. Smells good too; LOADS of pineapple and papaya with a mildly bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells, but not quite as robust, with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A little more bitter than fruity on the tongue. Enjoyable.

EithCubes (5006) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Tap. Clear golden with a sudsy off-white head. Great Citra-type nose with tons of rind, lemon and grapefruit, taste strongly bitter with more malt complexity than normal for an IPA, signature chalk and salts, soapy with lots of resins and rind. Fullish body, well-integrated alcohol, clean, cleansing, and awesome.

tectactoe (2028) - Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Can: Thanks, Jason. Bright, cloudy yellow body with a bright white, soapy white head that fades to a thin collar pretty quickly. Aroma of wet pine, dank resins, hemp oil, grass, faint green onion, zesty orange peel, grapefruit rind, mild white pepper spiciness, & a light essence of tropical fruit rounding out the finish; not much malt to be detected at all. Taste is quite "green" with a raunchy dirty dank profile & earthiness that lightens up with more modest notes of pine resin, oil, & grapefruit peel. Light white pepper, ashy hops, & some bitter citrus peel lead into a dry finish with only a hint of crackery malt.
