A: Pours a hazy golden peach/apricot in color with some moderate amounts of fine visible yeast sediment in suspension at the bottom of the glass, light amounts of visible carbonation, and some orange + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a couple of medium sized thin patches, a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Very light aromas of caramel malts underneath moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit hops, tropical/pineapple/mango hops, and much lighter amounts of pine & floral hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of caramel malts with a light amount of sweetness. That is followed by fairly aggressive and strong flavors of hops - citrus/grapefruit, tropical/pineapple/mango, and pine. Moderate amounts of fairly aggressive hop bitterness in the finish which lingers for quite a while.

M: Just shy of full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly sticky with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: This is really enjoyable with nice hop flavors, though slightly aggressive, and well balanced with the malts - there is enough sweetness that is it not overly or unpleasantly bitter. Pretty easy to drink and definitely one I would like to find again. Alcohol is well hidden.

Thank you to Chris N. for sending this to me! Poured into Tulip glass, a hazy orange copper color. Smells of grapefruit, tropical notes, and nice caramel malt in the background. Taste is wonderful. Nice juicy tropical, citrus hop notes. A balanced malt background is there, but the hops still shine through. Medium mouthfeel, nice and creamy. Overall a great Double IPA, and I'm really glad I got to try it.

Juicy, fruity, boozy....what's not to like? Easily one of the best breweries in the country. All their offerings are spot-on. Great people as well. All hail NEBCO!!!
