*From notes

-- Thanks to Robtobfest for sending this deliciousness my way --

A: Amber-orange. A nice pour yields a 1.5 finger head and solid lacing. Retention is also on point.

S: If heaven has a smell, it's not far off from this. Fresh, juicy hops explode out of the glass long before my nose actually gets there. Just phenomenal.

T: Hoppy, juicy, tropical citrus. The west coast profile is all over this epic DIPA. The alcohol is hidden in a way not many beers can claim. The back end has a mere kiss of golden malt to balance the finish.

M: Not as creamy and luxurious as I was expecting, given the massive flavor profile. It's properly carbed though, and the texture is on point.

O: NEBCO's Gandhi-Bot is a world class DIPA. Just another killer hoppy offering from New England. Who'd have thought it - that the upper Northeast would be leading the way for a hop revival on the East coast? As hard as it may be to believe, this is world's better then the A- rating it currently holds. It's a must-have, and demands to be sought out by every hophead reading this.

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

Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick lasting ring. The glass is left coated with large rings and chunks of soapy lacing.

Sweet citrus hop aroma with plenty of earthy notes and a subtle malt presence. There's some grassy pine needle and dank hop oils but the tropical/citrus fruits are most prominent in the nose. Lots of mango, grapefruit and citrus rind along with subtle biscuit.

Medium bodied with a complex, flavorful hop profile that is nicely balanced by a sweet malt backbone. Bitter and sweet notes play off of each other with hints of dry and bitter pine needle/grass countered by notes of grapefruit and orange. The dry bitterness lasts throughout, even when the sweeter notes come into play and linger into a nice dry finish that leaves me thirsty for me. The malt backbone adds sweetness with notes of caramel, toffee and biscuit without getting in the way of the hops. Really well balanced and very flavorful with an excellently masked ABV making it dangerously drinkable. I'm impressed and ISO more!

4.03/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a golden color with a light tint of orange, decent sized white head, fades at a moderate pace, small bits of lacing on the glass.

Smell has a nice hoppy aroma, leans toward the citrus side of things with a bit of pine thrown in for good measure.

Taste has a good hop kick but isn't overwhelming, citrus on the tongue, piney in the aftertaste, bit of a malt presence to smooth things over from being harsh, nice crisp carbonation helps the beer finish dry, for being almost 9% it definitely does not taste like it since I can't pick up a lick of heat but I can certainly feel its affects.

A very tasty DIPA out of a can, wish there was a canning date on it but I'm fairly certain it's fresh considering how fast this stuff flies off the shelves.
