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.

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!

Date: 10/29/14
Location: New England Brewing Co.
Draught/Bottle: Growler
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Gold to light amber in color. The High carbonation that is bone whit in color is trying to cling to every part of the glass. Just tilting it to the light and I see the beer release CO2. Nice head decent retention, fair amount of cling.
Aroma: The citra hops supply much to the aroma as I get a lot of grapefruit, pineapple and some lemon. The galaxy absolutely absolutely adds more citrus aroma but it also gives it a drier/earthier aroma then Fat-Ten-Er-#11. A light biscuit smell from the pale hops is evident even when the beer is still cool.
Taste: The citrus is large in the flavor. More citrus fruits, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, and a hint of lemon. The beer is perfectly balanced between hop sensations dank, dry and resinous. The blend is perfect.
Mouthfeel: Medium High to High body. Medium High carbonation. So much of this beer sits on my tongue well after the finish that it seems to add weight to the beer. Its a touch drying and resinous.

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!"

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.

Growler. Perhaps my favorite brewery finally entering my mouth again after leaving the state of Connecticut. A Double IPA with Galaxy and Citra hops? Sign me up, bro. Pours a murky yellow color. Head was thin and soft with lacing. Aroma is pungent and perfumey. Packed with all the tropical fruit those hops can bring forth. Citra and Galaxy are very easy to pick up. Hops bomb dedicated to these two varietals. The flavor actually didn't please me quite as much as the aroma did. The intensity is slightly lower. A glass full of exotic hop-fruit flavors. It finishes just a bit too quick. Not as bitter as I was expecting, either. It was clearly very tasty and my standards for NEBCO are far too high.tis still turned out to be a downright delicious beer, however I could have seen it really popping with a few tweaks.

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
