American IPA |  6.90% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our India Pale Ale has a pronounced hop bitterness and wonderful hop aroma. The taste immediately gives away the high hop characteristics with malt aspects playing second fiddle to this fantastic example of the style.

Poured into a pint glass.

Had at the iTap in Soulard. The server said it was a new keg.

A - Poured a very nice strong amber color with some copper hints. There was a thin (0.5 in) head but it was sticky and dense with an off-white color.

S - Aroma of awesome pine. Very dank beer. Fresh smelling grassy notes. Some light biscuit malt as well as some toasty notes. The hops are dank. Smells like some strong pine with some very slight grapefruit sweetness. Very dank. Smells very much like pot.

T & M - Starts off very piney with a lot of resin flavor that isn't overwhelming because its balanced by some nice grain. Tons of bready notes are present and help to off-seft the extremely dank and piney beer. A very delicious brew. Reminds me a bit of Ska Modus Hoperanid. Very flavorful and well crafted.

O - this brew is great. Really excited that these kegs are making their way down to MO. The IPA is well crafted with intense yet easy to handle hop notes. Grassy and piney notes that are flavorful and not palette killing.

On tap at David Copperfields here in NYC.

I fully enjoyed this beer. A nice departure from the crazy-ass hop bombs that I'm getting tired of. Very nice balance, excellent malt flavor and balanced bittering that seemed somewhat different from the typical citrus hopping most IPA's are about.

Beautiful ruby red color. Had never heard of this brewery but I'd certainly have more next time I encounter it.

Love beer in cans! So much better for the beer and ease of recycling. Great looking can BTW, check out the bar cade in the shape of the great state of Nebraska.

This is an impressive little brewery tucked away in south Omaha. This is a subtle IPA that still has somewhat bitterness but is oh, so balanced. It is darker in color than most IPA's. I like the lingering bitterness that stays on my palate but does not attack my mouth. One of my non-IPA guys said it best when trying a over-the-top IPA "This beer is attacking my mouth." That does not happen here.

So, this will be my go-to IPA, the alcohol content is up there for an IPA so it's not in the all-day affair but when I want a couple of cans, it's right towards the top.

Hopefully, they'll get some cans in your neck of the woods. Great Job Nebraska Brewing!

74 IBUs.
Mild, earthy hop aroma. Thick, rocky, off-white head. Good head retention. Clear amber color. Hops dominate but some caramel malt flavors are apparent on the dry finish. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Hops dominate this beer. The dryness on the finish validates the 74 IBU rating.

Serving glass: Poured from can into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Cloudy amber-orange with nice, off-white head and good lacing.

Smell: Sharp citrus that is definitely Citra hops. Some pine, pineapple and a little bit dank as well.

Taste: Very hoppy and juicy, with grapefruit, orange and pineapple. Fairly dank, with notes of marijuana and onion. The finish is quite bitter and piney. I guess there are some malts under there but I wasn't really paying attention to them.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, medium to full that is fairly oily, very dry.

Overall: Excellent IPA that is very juicy and hoppy. Quite underrated IMO.

4.25/5  rDev +11.3%

A: medium amber ale - crystal clear - centered into a pint, produced a towering head of off-white foam; some head retained throughout, lotsa lace down the glass

S: big aromas of citrus and pine - floral and bright; underscored by deeper notes of rich grain, wet with caramelized sugars

T: the hop bill asserts up front - Citra hop action brings the citric pith, suggesting dark grapefruit; pine resin chewiness and sweetness as hop and malt meld; hop-forward but the malts are present enough to support the bitterness

M: creamy and slick, but bittering as hell; some bitter pine-resin coat on the tongue leaves a "must-have-more" aftertaste; medium body, ample carbonation fuzz

O: whatta great little beer! From brewers I only knew for their "big boy" reserve series bottles comes a lean and tight IPA, crisp and easy-drinkin', full o' flavor with a nice clean aroma. I'm gonna go big here 'cuz I'm a fan of Citra hops. Regardless, grab some.
