Friend from down south hooked me up with a 4pk of this Jersey DIPA. Let’s see what the situation is here.
Very hazy straw gold. Tight white head is about a finger, but holds and laces well. (3.5)
Aroma is bright and citrusy, with tropical fruit notes. Alcohol is apparent. (4)
Flavor is very hoppy and dry. Huge bitterness building up on the tongue. Alcohol on the nose becomes more apparent on the drink, becoming fusel-like at times. Tons of grapefruit with a hint of apricot. Malt is right where it should be for the style: simple, pale and not caramel-laden. Finish is incredibly dry, but the carbonation and hop resins still provide a full mouthfeel. (3.5, 4)
Overall, very boozy for a 7.8% beer. Upon first sip, I would have thought this were in the 9-10% range, but the booze eventually takes a backseat to the hop flavor, which, combined with the dryness, keeps me coming back for another sip. (3.5)
