New Jersey

4.43/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Spotless white head, look scrubbed clean, crests at about one finger, assorted bubble sizes, steady dissolve leaving an above average amount of lacing stuck to the glass sides. A touch lighter and clearer than expected, a kind of sub bleached yellow to pumpkin orange in hue, easily transparent. The nose is drenched in pink grapefruit, lime and tangerine juice, pungently sweet with pine oil, scone crumbs, the apricot, peach fruit too friendly to relent and take on tart pineapple notes, difficult to tease out any chocolate or toffee type stuff. Full-bodied, the carbonation is fine and sticks the tongue rather than swirl, this in large part due to the overt heaviness and tactile cling. Not as out-and-out sweet as the nose, however, there's no less impressiveness in the tangerine, lime, pink grapefruit, just the dominance among them shifted a bit. Pine, ginger and more of a floral dimension although that is too delicate to thrive amidst the bitter grassiness which comes to the fore at the end. Powdered milk chocolate has additional staying power and there's a punch of carob as well. Not that much breadiness, if anything rough baker's dough. Apricot, nectarine, golden raisin, honeydew melon fruit flavors. Plays up its strengths from start to finish and doesn't make much attempt at answering the critics beforehand.
