A - Lovely lookign clear gold with one and a half fingers of foamy white head, no lacing though.
S - Juicy tropical fruits, pine, and grapefruit, dank grassy hints, a little sweet malt.
T - Big hop flavor without being too bitter, lots of dank pine and grass, nice bread malt, a little caramel, sweet pineapple.
M - Bold bitterness, and a little chewy, but manageable.
O - Really solid IPA, was stoked to finally see this around. Could easily get a case of this.

Crystal-clear copper hued body covered with a small white head. There's certainly a hefty dose of Citra in the nose: mango, pineapple, tangerine, peach, and pine sap, all over some biscuity malt at the base. It doesn't have aromatics that leap out of the glass, things stay fairly mellow and dark, but definitely very hop-forward. Flavor is a solid wave of punchy, fruity hops with a moderate bitterness and lingering resins. Mango, lemon, and a pile of pile needles meet some caramel malt that balances things out without getting too sweet. Very nice! Solid body and decently dry on the finish. I don't think I've had much else from Nebraska because their larger format bottles are so expensive and seem to just sit on the shelves. Good to see some cans around these parts, I hope people get their hands on this while it's fresh.

12 oz can poured into a pub style pint glass.
Golden with 1 finger of creamy, off-white head. Excellent clarity and good retention with light carbonation.
Tangerine, mango, passion fruit, peach, and caramel.
Mango, tangerine, and papaya. Honey and caramel maltiness. Touches of peach and passion fruit. Finishes with grapefruit zest and light notes of pine resin.
Medium bodied, crisp, and dry with a moderate-high bitterness.
Citrusy, tropical, bitter, and dry. A solid IPA worth checking out.

Golden orange in color with good clarity. Poured with a short white foam that reduced to a thin bright cap that left sheets of wet sticky lacings on the glass. Pungent, herbal, onion-like aroma up front, with light, ripe tropical hop and sweet malty notes in tow. Medium bodied with a a slick oily feel with slightly biting aggressive carbonation over top. Flavors are similar to aromas with dominant, pungent, herbal hop bitterness from start to finish. Sweet malt presence offsets the bitterness a bit but this id clearly a bitter hop forward offering. Pungent flavors take a spicy turn through the middle as pine hop flavors emerge toward the end. Finished with a lingering light pine hop bitterness.

This has a nice copper pour with a light head that dissipates quickly.
The hops come forward in the aroma, letting you know that this is going to be one bitter IPA.
As soon as you taste this beer - POW! - hops. That said, it's got a pretty clean finish...in that all you get off the tail end is the hopiness you met at the front.
Nebraska Brewing Company just arrived in Rhode Island, but I've really liked all that I've tried.

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!
