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.

Burnished copper colored with a low frothy head of dimpled off-white foam that settles out quickly to a low cap. Aroma of tangerine and mango, some subtle piney notes.

Big hop flavors upfront, lots of citrus, grapefruit rind, and sappy pine, with some floral notes. Good malt balance rides beneath, but the hops keep punching their way to the surface. Hop flavor lingers long, piney notes linger. Even mouthfeel, creamy and full, but finishes semi-tingly. Very good beer.

Another gift from my son in Texas, this beer was poured from the can that has a wide mouth lid, something I haven't seen before in a can. Into the glass it gives off a great aroma of a glen of pine trees. It has a dark amber appearance, almost brownish, with an off-white head that is thick and long lasting with a trail of lacing left behind as the beer is consumed. The first sip delivers the resiny aromatics on the tongue, the Citra hop flavor coming thru clearly. It is followed immediately by some bitterness, which is a bit sharp. That bitterness leaves the mouth quickly for a clean finish. And afterward you can use the can as a pencil holder!

An all around good IPA. Good color, nice head and impressive head. Pine hops and some citrus are apparent in the taste and the feel is awesome, leaving you wanting more!!!!!!!!!. Nice balance and great beer, Nebraska !!!!!!!!

This was an excellent IPA. Pretty complex play between hops and malt

Another picked up at the Pour House in PT,WA. Poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a clean, clear honey-gold color with just a thin cap of white head that had low retention and lacing.

The aroma featured nice, bright hops, mostly citrus, with just a slight hint of malt. Pretty similar on the tongue, but the hops are bigger and totally dominate the palate. There was bitter finish that bordered on unenjoyable.

The body was on the light-medium side of the scale for the style, and had a dry finish. Drinkability was OK, that harshness on the back would probably preclude me from having 2 in a row, but I would drink this again. Overall, a solidly typical example of the style, worth trying if you see it, not worth seeking out.

12 oz can

clear golden copper color, bright white head that fades. earthy, piney hop aroma. slightly sweet malt flavor, with hop flavor that is okay, but doesn't totally jive. mouthfeel is a bit sticky, thin to medium. medium to high carbonation.
