CAN, thanks to Mathieu87.
APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, nice stable white head.
NOSE: lots of pine, amarillo like, fruity, mango.
TASTE: rather dry, keeps on coming, fruity aftertaste, lytchee, bitterness keeps on kicking in! Very nice beer, bit too bitter for me maybe. HeadyDE (850) - Delaware, USA - SEP 3, 2015
can offering recently picked up at the source, a tiny operation they have, soon to expand to bigger digs, pours a solid light medium orange hue with a small white head..few hop particles towards the end of the can..like it..nose is described on can as orange, mango, and papaya..i am getting the mango for sure and also hop goodness..nice nose all around..mouthfeel is super smooth but packed with hop flavor that is not overly bitter..touch of sweetness for sure..coats the mouth with hop oil..grassy floral hop profile.doesn’t feel like 7.8%..really enjoyable canned DIPA..solid lacing all around..like the tall can..everything about this screams solid representation of a DIPA..worth seeking out for sure...

DATE TASTED: August 7, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: HopDevil nonick... OCCASION: prepping for birthday number 39 with Matt, Jer and Sharknado 3... APPEARANCE: from fresh growler: light golden body with slight effervescence; nice head retention of an off-white single-finger ring; reasonable smears of tracings; strong head retention... AROMA: a beautiful collaboration of pineapple, mango and orange peel with the resin and pinecone necessary to enrapture the senses; the balance of malt and hop is appreciable; the balance comes with a bit of caramel and wet malts... PALATE: strong carbonation livens the mouth, with a medium-bodied, reasonable finish--easy drinking and sessionable... TASTE: a powerful yet drinkable 7.8% ABV; the citrus is strong and tangible; a strong, flavorful pint... OVERALL: pleased to have Carton in our backyard--and more pleased that this Imperial truly drinks like a pale ale; full-bodied and rewarding; active and filling...

Received in a trade from dmac; Can poured into an English Pint glass -- Golden orange in color with great sweet hop aromatics. Flavor was solid clean malt that was just filled with hops. A little sweet and a little citrusy. Very bubbly from lots of carbonation helped disperse all the flavors well.

Nice grapefruit aroma. Flavor is a little less exciting. Still really citrusy but the bitterness gets in the way. Malt does some balancing. Very clear golden color with a nice white cap. Body is a little light. rxeight (3108) - Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Can with no date. First beer from New Jersey. Ok, orange, hops. Slight bitter. Medium body. Very drinkable. Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Big can at home - extra in a trade. Pour is hazy lemon peel with a big white head and sticky lacing. Grassy, husky, straw, lemony, light citrus notes and oranges in the aroma. Taste is grassy, lemony, orange peels, some grapefruit, marmalade, light bread, crackers, and straw with a big bitter finish. Medium body with high cabronation. Nice DIPA without being over-the-top - highly chuggable. gripweed57 (2574) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Growler from Joe Canal’s in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. Hazy medium gold color with a small rocky beige head. Slightly dank hoppy nose with a hint of ground mustard seed. Flavor is more of the same with notes of bitter lemon and dandelion greens. Some tropical fruit notes as well. Mid taste brings bready malt that is quickly engulfed by the complex spicy, bitter hop bill. Finish is white grapefruit and arugula greens. Nicely done. Johnsense (1685) - - JUN 30, 2015
Darker gold colour, good sized head. Dank aroma, grapefruit, weed. Citrus up front, grapefruit, citrus peels, sweet caramel malt backbone. Medium body.
