New Jersey

4.06/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a solid finger plus head of rich foam, light tan in color, forms some big surface craters as it starts to evaporate, the lacing streaks are noticeably thick but could stand to stick a little longer, takes some time for the surface to lose its final coating. Bright metallic orange hued liquid, close to rust, huge amount of equally large bubbles bursting upwards throughout the glass, inclines more towards a reddish tint than yellow. Aims for a real classic nose, pine, green grass, herbs, orange to grapefruit citrus, the peach, apricot, pineapple fruit scents are there but it is not anywhere near going for sweet, salt and saline notes, the malts seem to smoothen more texturally than provide a real olfactory presence, it’s all tightly woven together, no movement wasted. Full-bodied, while the attack is very creamy the experience is not of softness, a pervading dryness is there, you keep licking your lips to remoisten them. Light honey and the pine as much sap as needle or cone, mildly sweetens the pink grapefruit, tangerine citrus. Moments of florality but nothing near the strength of the oily herbaceousness, skanky even, in a good way. Malts subdued here too, some caramel and malted milk balls. The carbonation is broad and energetic, no pinpoint finesse. A little too rich overall to be sessionable, however, what you do throw back will be enjoyed.
