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.

Say you are thirsty for an IPA! This one quenches any IPA lover's Pallet. The hop to malt balance is perfect. A bit more "carmally" than some IPAs and a very generous citrus and piney hop tingle to your tongue. Probably the best IPA to come out of the Great Plains region. I'd say the hop flavor is 65% citrus and 35% piney but with generous maltiness! Definitely a good IPA.

A: The beer is clear light amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with notes of pine resin hops.
T: Like the smell, the taste starts off with flavors of citrusy hops and finishes with piney hops. The hops contribute a moderate to strong amount of bitterness. Slight hints of caramel malts are perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a very hop-forward IPA that delivers a lot of bitterness on the taste and bite on the mouthfeel. I liked how it had a blend of citrusy and piney hops.

Pours amber with 3 fingers of cream colored head. Nice head retention & lacing

S: Lemon zest, leafy & piney hops

T: Grapefruit, a little pineyness, plus dryness up front. Aspirin, a little caramel & doughyness as this warms along with grapefruit pith. Finished grapefruitty, dry, with a little lemon as well

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, decent balance

A respectable IPA, glad I got to try it

Can at 45 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of generic citrus and flowers
Head average (3.5 cm), white, creamy with many small rocks
Lacing mostly nonexistent; some small islands present
Body medium yellow, clear
Flavor begins bitter and citrusy, very nice; ends with mild astringency; no malts, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, slightly oily, lively carbonation

A pleasant IPA. Well worth buying a six-pack or more.

Deep golden color, no hazy, carbonation streams, topped by a softball of snow white micro bubbles. Minimal lacing.

Citrus aroma, lemon, grapefruit, hint of orange. Nice, but could be more assertive.

Sweet malty start. Quick touch of fruit. Very unpleasant abrasive bitterness. Hints of cleanser.

Medium mouthfeel.

Not a pleasant experience, not recommended.

Honey amber brew with a kingly crown of white.

Raw hop, spicy citrus, tropical medley, pine, and twiggy notes. Reppin' Citra, alright. More on the resinous side. Stocky malts, sun-kissed fruit, and slight woodiness.

Hoppy, with a vengeance. Lots of spiny leafiness with a citrus/tropical rind and pith squeeze. Tail greets pine with balsa wood dryness. Spicy hops cut through the bittersweet hop oils, which this IPA is ripe with. Caramel malt has a hard tack candy plateau, pushed up a notch with toast and carbonated sizzle. Late lemon-lime note clashes a bit with the malts, leaving bitterness to engulf the tongue in a long aftertaste.

Body is just fine. Carbonation is green-light-go. Lots of spiciness and crackle.

A damn solid IPA. West Coast style, with a slight love of grains. How Nebraskan of them.
