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.

Nebraska Brewing's IPA is an IPA for people who normally don't care for strong and bitter IPA's. Much of the hoppy bitterness is offset by citrus, astringent notes that compliment and subdue the more strident notes often associated with IPA's. Light copper color with little nose. Strong, yet refreshing. Very cool can with a unique pop top opening.

12 oz can. Pours clear copper orange with a medium creamy off white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet soapy malts with some fruit and stinky, resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malts (slightly biscuity crystal) and fruit with a big resiny, tarry bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a decent IPA, just not my thing. I'm not a huge fan of the biscuit malt and the tarry hops.

Great can and a potent IPA with a decent malt/hop balance. Flavor is resiny if I remember

Aggressive hop (Citra) character is right! Bite lasts a little too long for my IPA tastebuds.

A lot of people had talked this up, so I was really excited to try it but it's just mediocre. Too bitter and overly carbonated...

Nicely balanced offering with a bit of malt to it. Deep reddish in color.

A: Apricot in color, with a slight bit of haze. Night white head.

S: Citrus notes with a lot of caramel sweetness. Plenty of tangerine in there I'm a little surprised by the sweetness, but it's a good surprise.

T: Taste follows aroma, but with a significant amount of bitterness. Citrus as well as some pine notes, the caramel is a little bit more subdued than the aroma would lead you to believe.

M: Medium in mouthfeel, with medium carbonation. A little bit of an ending bite with the carbonation.

O: Overall a pretty tasty beer. Tasty, hoppy, I'd get it again.

Received this one as an extra from super good guy up in MN, I am cold but I am certain he is colder! Anyway thanks man!

Appearance: This is possibly the darkest IPA I have ever seen. Very brown almost looks like a hoppy brown ale rather an a conventional IPA. lots of fluffy head sticks to the glass.

Aroma: Resinous and floral not very sweet considering it probably does have a lot of malt in the base. This is definitely a mid west farmland style IPA. They call it a West Coast style but its very much their own in this regard.

Taste: Bittering hops are noticeable but there is some malts to balance it out. However its not very sweet and its not very thick either. Which is surprising, it has a nice clean finish with some bitterness on the back of the tongue.

Overall: This is an oddball but very good in the way it tastes and is unconventional to the conventions of a all too familiar style in name anyway. Not ragging on West Coast IPA's I love them but it seems everyone is using that name anymore. This is very much a midwest IPA. It reminds me in character in regard to the earthiness and grainy mash bill to Toppling Goliath.
