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.

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.

a really solid ipa from nebraska brewing here, but all of their stuff has been good, so no surprise at all. an orangey colored version of the style, with a little less than an inch of thick white head. it has a real fruit punchy bouquet to the hops, not so much tropical as citrusy and orchard type fruits, and just enough bitterness. the malt base is middle of the road, a little medium crystal in here for color and smoothness, but mostly pale type malt in here. lots of late kettle hops are responsible for the aromatic explosion of this beer, super hoppy, less conventional varietals, which i like a lot. they have gotten a lot out of the hops here, and although there isnt much bitterness, the beer comes through balanced and robust. maybe colder fermentation has helped make this as smooth and dry as it is, without any real yeast character to the flavor at all. overall quite a good ipa, not as adventurous as the bottled series they have done, but very sturdy beer here.

A: From the can to a standard pint glass, the beer built a solid two finger head. Off white foam that sustained a moderate/long time before leaving spotting lacing on the edge of the glass. The beer is a Light copper with excellent clarity.

S: Mild to moderate grapefruit, mango and candy like hop aroma. Light pine dankness. Caramel and toasty malt character is notable.

T: Medium pine and grapefruit bitterness flows into a medium dank pine hop flavor. The toasty bready malt flavor comes through in the middle. The balance is on the hops but there is a mild sweetness. The finish leaves with the more pine.

M: Carbonation is moderate and the body is also (even though it says west coast style). It feels like there are hop flakes in the glass despite its clear appearance, maybe just my imagination.

O: Not the most aromatic or flavorful IPA out there, but in a can its a good beer to take on a camping/canoing trip. I didn't see a date on the can which is a no-no for me, so this might have had some age on it and not the freshest example
