Small head on it with a nice hazy orange color. Great looking DIPA.

Big orange and grapefruit smell up front, just completely fills up your nostrils instantly.

Huge citrus taste follows suit after the amazing smell. Love how well the alcohol is hidden in this one. There is just so much flavor.

Light mouthfeel and hardly any alcohol burn whatsoever in this.

Up there with g-bot. Another awesome example of this beer style from NEBCO. Glad I finally got to try it.

Poured from growler into NEBCO Gandhi-Bot glass.

Hazy orange. Thin white head. Sticky lacing. Looks just like the Bot.

Stinks of peaches pineapples mangos and kiwis. Both dank and sweet at the same time.

My mouth gets a lot of the same flavors w the residual bitter sweetness I expect from a bomb DIPA. Finishes very similar to Gandhi Bot. Again dank bitter and sweet collide in perfect harmony.

The mouthfeel is perfect. Not too thin or too chewy. Just smooth and silky. Little bubbly. Just great.

Overall top 5 DIPA I have ever had. Not as much going on as HT but right up there w it and GBot. I side by sided GBot and HT and gave the nod to GBot so idk where I'd put this beer but it's right up there and it's simply amazing. Hides the alcohol so well and just tastes amazing. Hope they make it a staple. Matt and Rob, everything they touch turns to gold. Their mantra is so true, "Drink It. It's Good!"

I had a grolwer of this, didn't review it at the time. Nothing much I want to say besides that it completely blew me away. Different hop profile than Gandhi but just as profound. I think that many would prefer this DIPA to Heady if only they were able to try it!

NEBCo is godlike. I really hope this thing comes around more.

Overall a little less bitter than Gandhi with a similar hop profile and depth. Golden hazy pour with soapy big bubbles. Floral and belgian yeast bubblegum smell. Nicely hopped with a pleasent bite and grassy citrus notes. Smooth carb and slightly creamy

NEBCO DIPA hopped with Galaxy and Citra? Yes Please.

Got a nice 64 ounce pour into my stainless steel society growler.

A crystal clear pour into my tree house goblet - golden with amber hues. Biiig boy white head.

Smells like citrus, mango, and peach. Citrusy sweet hops work well with the galaxy hop bite. NEBCO can't be stopped. Ghandi bot is a home run but this is a grand slam.

This beer is well balanced and the 8.2 is perfectly hidden

I hope this one sticks. These guys are on fire. If this was NBA jam it'd be game over. They have ipas/dipas down to a science.

4.49/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

From a 32 oz. half growler poured directly from the tank, pre kegged, into a DFH IPA glass

A) Nice golden hue with about an inch of frothy foam that quickly subsides.

S) Peach and mango with a little grapefruit going on.

M) The combination of the Citra & Galaxy hops are great. You get the sweetness of the citra with the sharp pithiness of the galaxy. Wow.

M) Smooth

O) Need this in the rotation. Great beer! NebCo strikes again!
