New Jersey

4.06/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Fluffy head, dimples deeply in a few spots, pretty much bone white, tight weave overall with good retention, the lacing comes in thick stripes, tends to move like flexible metal mesh. Bright, vibrant orange colored liquid, inclines more to red-brown than yellow, very clear and crisp looking, you see a fat bubble here or there. From a distance the nose is powerfully floral yet as you get closer more dominance in the well cooked bread dough, herbaceousness, sharper spices and pepper, moderate pine sap and likewise the peach, nectarine scents are quiet, takes a little opening up but there is a decent bubblegum component. Medium-bodied plus, foams up some in the mouth, carbonation big rather than prickly. As a result, it sits there and slowly percolates rather than flows. Spicy attack, ginger, cardamom, caraway then spiced orange peel, not getting a consistent yeast presence. Here too the peach, apricot, pear, apple flavors have minimal thrust, ending up in a drier texture. The bitterness not fully to be pinned on the herbaceousness, more like sour grains. Pine more present, the bubblegum to banana notes mostly retronasal than perceived as flavor. It’s actually pretty good and can easily be understood as a smashup of two styles.

Delaware

4/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - really nice amber color, great foamy head with pretty solid lacing around the glass

S - citrus, hops, zesty, malt, oranges, mangoes

T - taste is very similar to the smell. lots of hops, orange zest, citrus mangoes, good amount of malt

M - medium bodied, some carbonation, really nice on the palette

O - really nice beer here, you have a fantastic balance of hops and orange-citrus zest, some malt characters, but a solid offering for a Belgian IPA. Not too sweet but not too bitter either, this is a solid beer.
