New Jersey

3.29/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours an adequate finger’s worth of clean white foam, a lot of larger bubbles, retention is weak, the lacing fares better, broad streaks, not thick depth-wise but do stain the glass sides for some time. Bright coppery orange hued liquid, easily transparent, holds hue intensity through rims and glass bottom, any visible bubbles are super-tiny. The nose focuses on bitterness, unprocessed grains, grapefruit pith, pepper, green leafy matter and tarry earth and ash, not that much pine, even less by way of pineapple, peach, apricot fruit scents, has very good punching power but relatively weak richness of scents hampers length. Medium-bodied, the carbonation is strong and creates a “waves crashing on the beach” effect, never quite allows you to relax. Mild uptick in flowers, pine and malt, arguably the same for the peach, apricot, yellow apple fruit flavors. Salt and pepper, pretzel dough, sour breads, fairly bitter but not as much as the nose might suggest. Light cocoa and caramel soften the finish a little. Not watery, no overt flaws, just simple and kind of caught in the middle without a clear idea of what it wants to be.
