Brewery : Dark City Beer : F.O.M.O. - Fear Of Missing Out Style : IPA / India Pale Ale Variance : None
9.5 / 10
Are you ready for a bold as fuck statement? Besides Magnify, Dark City has officially created the closest to an actual Tree House New England style IPA that I’ve tasted from NJ and I absolutely love it. This beer pours like straight OJ and these days with hazy IPAs being all the rage you never really know what you’re going to get flavor wise, but this more than delivers with incredible flavors. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s tackle the beer’s name. I’m pretty sure F.O.M.O. sounds more like a new clothing company dreamed up by either Russel Simmons or Daymond John than it does a name for a delicious hazy IPA but I couldn’t agree more that everyone should have the Fear Of Missing Out on this beer because it is that damn good. I originally thought that it’s name may have stood for Frank Oz - Muppeteer Outstanding which doesn’t really make a lot of sense now that I look back at it but let’s be real, there needs to eventually be a beer that shouts out a man who can voice Miss Piggy, Cookie Monster, and Yoda without even breaking a sweat. As for this beer, it starts with a smooth orange juice and pineapple juice mixture with some hints of hops and bitterness mixing in towards the middle with a slight bitterness mixing in perfectly with it’s initial sweetness before ending with a slight acidity and slightly oniony hop explosion. I was already sold on Dark City’s brewing capabilities before drinking this beer but now they have catapulted into my top 5 for the state with this incredible addition to their lineup. If you ever wanted to visit Asbury Park for reasons outside of a gay hookup or a hipster experience, make sure you stop by this brewery because on top of having an awesome facility, beers like this will have you coming back over and over again. Regardless of your drinking level I highly suggest picking this up and kicking back with it because this is one to be sipped and not gulped due to it’s delicious and bold flavors. Cheers!
Power Fact: Before publishing his first book, Stephen King was ready to give up his writing career. After getting thirty rejections, he threw his first novel in the trash, but his wife retrieved it and urged him to keep going. He has since gone on to sell over 350 million copies of his books, most of which have been made into major motion pictures.
