3.99/5  rDev -7%

the store listed this @ 8.6%... just sayin...

eyes...
frothy white head of about the one finger variety, nice sticky lacing slimes the glass, slightly muddy orange hue, a slightly above average looking sort of thing...

nose...
I could smell this across the room, I am surprised no one else has said how much this smells like weed, I don't even smoke (well, not in a long ass time anyhoo), huge resin-y juicy fruit explosion that makes your mouth water, well... if you love da hops.. and I do, this is bubble gum chewy chew-ariffic, citrus notes lend a nice sour note to the mix. this is up there scent wise for DIPAs in my book, just some really strong unadulterated stuff here.. nice !

taste...
hoppy. duh... a bit of a let down compared to the aroma which was toe curling... this drinks like an extra bitter APA, the malt seems a touch lacking and this really packs a bitter punch, the grapefruit flavors try and sometimes succeed in saving this from turning bad, it manages to really kick you in the teeth with hop power but doesn't destroy your mouth with the aftertaste like many DIPAs, the carbonation is nice and crisp and definitely is a plus here, this pushes the limit of acceptable bitter...

verdict?
I dig it, not my fave but for a local ? please.. I would order this in a hot second out at the local bars, it needs just a bit more balance to be a DIPA killer but as it is ? really good and one of the best smelling beers I have run across in some time.

2nd had: Dry Hopped with Mosaic version
basically close to my above review but it seemed a bit more balanced, very enjoyable

Enjoy by when?

This beer is awesome. The bouquet used in this concoction is so well blended, each sip brings a different wave of unorganized flavor you don't need to bother sort out. This beer ultimately rivals Stone's Enjoy By and Maine Beer Co.'s Another One (which tops Lunch). This is a full- bodied, uber floral IPA with balls- a.k.a. a firm malty backbone many critically acclaimed IPAs lack.

Ever experience the outcome of Simoce and Columbus hops getting gang-banged by Amarillo and Centennial? This beer has.

Welcome to New Jersey. Drink this. Then get the fuck out.
