4.35/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Picked up a four pack last night that was bottled recently that was the latest batch (I think it was canned the end of last week or the beginning of this week according to the NEBCO facebook page). 12 oz can into my Russian river pint glass.
A: Amber, off orange but darker than most yellow IPA’s. Head was small but lingered for a little while.
S: Lots of pine, flowery, and a ton of Hops. The smell is reminiscent of hopslam.
T: Not too much bitterness up from, the hops are there but it definitely doesn’t taste like a DIPA. Not exactly watery but the flavor doesn’t hit right away.
M: The hops hit in the mouthful and the flavor comes out. Lots of citrus and pine but not overwhelming. Very balanced.
O: For sure the best IPA I’ve had to date (beats hopslam and DFH 120 in my book). Not too overwhelming but really balanced and flavorful once it gets into your mouth. I would highly recommend this beer to anyone who comes across it, if only it were easier to find.

12oz can poured into a teku

A: Gandhi Bot pours a bright, orange-copperish shade of gold. It's hazy, unfiltered, and really good looking.

S: Crisp aromas of candied citrus, tropical fruits, and pine. Very pleasant-smelling beer.

T: Bitter and malty, but not much of the flavors the nose promised. The beer does deliver a beautiful dry and bitter finish. Little disappointed with the flavor of this one.

M: Probably the highlight of the beer for me: crisp, creamy, and refreshing.

O: Thanks to a great BA for throwing me this as an extra. A good beer I enjoyed quite a bit, but the taste just wasn't there for me. Looks great, smells good, and tastes not bad.
