Apparently, when this beer came out, there was a huge thing about someone having an allergy and being a bit of a troll to the brewery owner. If you’re interested, I would suggest googling the beer name. Anyways, let’s see how it was.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Having decided they had something to contribute to the very exciting conversation going on in craft brewing, cousins Chris and Augie Carton teamed up and started Carton Brewing. In the seashore community where they were born and raised, the Carton boys found a turn-of-the-century red brick warehouse and adapted it to accommodate a state-of-the-art Newlands Systems 15 barrel brew house. 6 E. Washington Avenue was turned into an independent craft brewery and their hats were in the ring. Applying a passion for stimulating flavor to inspiration found all around them, they set about their goal: to make tasty beer in the place their tastes were formed.”

The beer poured with a one finger, white head. It went away quickly and left very little lacing on the glass. The body was slightly murky and a light orange color. There was a lot of carbonation visible, despite the cloudiness. The nose had a lot of fruit and candy. The almond note was apparent, along with some mango, grapefruit zest and lemon. There was some pine as well. The taste had a bit more depth. The same fruit was apparent, specifically mango, lemon, grapefruit zest and pineapple as well. There was some pine along with a sweet almond note from the marzipan. There were also notes of pears and white grapes. The body was on the lighter side with a lot of carbonation. The finish was lengthy with some sweetness from the marzipan. This beer was expensive at $4.50 per can, which came to $.28 per ounce. I thought this beer was an interesting take on an IPA and would highly recommend this.
