Nice ibu is a powerful hoppy beer. After a few you will definitely be feeling good. Has a lot of bitterness to it but I enjoyed this brew

Pours clear dark orange Amber with lots of off white head that lingers and leaves plenty of lacing.

Nose has pine, grapefruit citrus, grass, sweet malty caramel.

Taste follows nose closely. There an almost brown sugar sweetness underneath it all.

Good beer. Not as good as Sucks but still good.

Hazy orange, a bit dark, small messy off-white, sticky and leaving quite a bit of lacing.
Fruity hops on the nose, lots of peach, overripe orange, more than mild caramel, very light biscuit. A bit of pine, faint spicy leafiness, honey, a faint tropical hint.
Bitter citrus up front, like grapefruit concentrate, quickly sweetened by a big gulp of sticky caramel maltiness. Some juicy peach, apricot, faint white grapes, honey glaze. Light biscuity toastiness, covered up by the sweet malt. A bit of crispness in the finish to liven things up, pine and grassy hop, nice and bitter.
Finish isn't dry enough to cut off the sweetness, leaving caramel and some generic (in a good way) orange/stone fruit flavors in the aftertaste, faint tropical fruit too. Medium body, a bit sticky, medium carbonation to help lift everything up.
Really nice, but coming after Hop Stoopid it seems to lack some stuff (might be a bit old, too). Sweeter, fruitier, lacking that nice stinky dankness.
