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.

Had at the brewery yesterday and out of the growler today, 9/5 (edit: update). #2 pours a beautiful golden color with a hint of haze, but not totally opaque. Really potent hop aroma coming from this one, lots of fruit. The main aroma is a strong orange juice, really inviting. The taste is solid New England style DIPA. Big Citra hop note, orange juice all around. Considerable malt bill, too, giving off a medium body leaning heavy and a bit of sweetness. Finishes sticky and bitter. Overall a good beer but I would love to have this in regular IPA form.

The best beer of the Fat-Ten-Er series. A delicious DIPA with mouthwatering fruity hop flavors of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, and pineapple balanced off by a gentle piney undertone. Just a fantastic beer!

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!
