Once again another winner from NB.
Just bought this tonight must have been just released.
Appearance, something I haven't seen for sometime as it was not a darker copper as other Ipa's but much more light in appearance more like a regular pale ale.
Smell, great placement of hops in my opinion, leads you down the rabbit hole of depth in the hop addition here. A slight hint of richness in the malt is what I seem to smell.
Taste, well placed IBUs I'm not sure as the level of IBUs but if I could guess it would range in the 80s-90s. Good upfront bite, but there is a slight peach undertone in the finish. Very well made Imperial IPA not so sweet but more balance.
Overall I'll go back for thirds on this one. Bravo NB!

A--Gold to possible light amber color with medium to thick head and good lacing around the glass. Cloudy as well.
S--Pine and citrus primarily on the nose. I'm a bit stuffed up, so it's kind of hard to differentiate the citrus. Smells like I would expect an Imperial/Double IPA to.
T--Citrus really comes across as grapefruit on the tongue. Big, bitter hit and a great dry finish. Very enjoyable. I can pick up the alcohol as well. Only thing I would say is the bitter might hang on just a bit too long, but IPAs aren't my favorite style so it could be right up most people's alley.
M--Medium body with decent carbonation. Quite drinkable in that regard.
O--Good IPA with the bitter hit you'd expect, and the citrus/grapefruit bit is enjoyable as well.
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Best by date of Oct. 5, 2014. 8.5% ABV
