one of the most drinkable double ipas ive ever encountered. thanks to a wonderful trade with thebrewo, I got to enjoy two cans of this bad boy. the pour on it is tinted red, orange, and bronze, with some small yeast floaters and an amazing bone white head that rises three inches high and holds up well above the rim of my glass. the nose is fresh oily hops, high alpha, fruity and juicy, citrus and pine both, only mildly bitter. there is a decent coppery malt balance, but hops are of course the star of this beer. the taste is a lot like the nose, with a very fruity and complex hop arrangement. I would love to know which varietals are used, but I can say that there is a hefty tropical fruit element, its pineapple or tartish passion fruit. a little bitterness creeps into the finish, but not enough to slow down its drinkability at all. love the feel too, fuller bodied but kept swift by its lively carbonation. super creamy, and less sticky and filling than many other beers of this style. I had two cans back to back, and was only done because I didn't have any more. im not sure if this comes in 4s or 6s or what, but I could drink these forever. its amazingly fresh and refreshing at the same time, unlike a lot of big india pale ales. thanks to thebrewo for hooking this up, its one ive been hunting for some time now, and it surpasses even its hype. bomb!

Right off the bat this beer looks great with a nice hazy orange color with a murkiness that ive never seen in a ipa before. Aroma consist of sweet tropical fruits and bready malt. The taste is amazing. Pineapple, mango, slight grapefruit are the main flavors coming through. For a double ipa this is incredibly smooth with just the right amount of bitterness that even a non-hophead could get behind. A bready malt on the back end provides some balance and doesn't let the bitterness linger at all. Ready for sip a few seconds after the first. For me this is the best beer ive tried or at least top two or three. If your in the CT area this is a must try along with the other awesome nebco beers.

4.19/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Pours unfiltered straw yellow with a 1/2 finger of white head. This is so cloudy it almost looks like grapefruit juice.
Smell: Grapefruit, pine, subtle mango and malt.
Taste: Much like the nose. Piney hops up-front, grapefruit in the middle of the tongue and lingering bitterness and malt on the back end. Very drinkable and hides the abv well.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with lively carbonation that really tickles the tongue. Doesn't get much better.
Overall: Solid DIPA that leans more toward the grapefruit side of the IPA spectrum. Would drink again.

Sometimes you never know when a gift is tossed your way! We have been trying to bring in Gandhi-Bot for almost two years now without any luck.
We were able to get 1 case, so that was super.
I had the opportunity to taste it tonight. (Thank yo Spencer). The pour was a bit on the lighter side, I was expected more orange. But it poured cloudy, not like a wheat beer, but like a beer that had been shaken.
The nose and bouquet were perfect. The tar, the grapefruit, resin, citrus all were so present. With the fist sip, I the extreme hops came through loud and clear. But, what I noticed that it didnt have that dry bitterness from a high IBU beer, but instead had a touch of a sweet overtone at the end.
I am glad I had it, but I still know what my number one beer is.

Thanks to Zach for this awesome beer...trying the famous Gandhi-Bot.
Poured from 12oz can into fluted snifter; translucent warm yellow-orange with a huge fluffy off-white yellowish head that fades very very slowly, leaving chunky fine lacing as it does.
Smells awesome; tangerine, mango, passionfruit at first, then some earthy and piney bitterness comes through.
Taste is just as awesome; sweetness, tropical fruit all blending together, discernible mango and tangerine, moving into pine and earthy bitterness all in balance.
Mouthfeel is smooth, well-carbonated and the finish cleans it off well. Medium body.
Overall, I can see why this is a very sought-after IPA, but it doesn't live up to the hype as well as others do. Still a solid beer that I wish I could find more than once every few months.
Thanks again Zach!
