I've been waiting a long time to try this NEBCO beer. Picked up a four pack of 12 oz. cans today and I'm on Gandhi-Bot #2 of the afternoon.

Appearance: Very hazy and not clear at all. Kind of a brownish hue of orange, almost like an overripe orange in the fruit bowl. Head leaves very impressive lacing that hasn't budged an inch since the initial pour.

Aroma: Very citrusy and hop forward. Not sure I'm getting much malt at all in the nose. Pineapple, Grapefruit, and slight pine notes come out.

Taste: Pure citric bitterness. Not in a bad way. Malt lightens things up enough to get a bright fruity burst at the beginning, but the rind-like aspect of the grapefruit flavors is what ends up dominating. One of the more unique aspects of this flavor development is that the malt actually ends up sweetening things a bit in the back of the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Loose. It isn't particularly smooth or light, but it goes down well enough. Nothing clings to the mouth or feels particularly thick in the body, but it is heavy enough to feel like a full-mouth of beer.

Drinkability: Pretty high for the ABV and robust flavor. I can see why this is a pretty popular DIPA. It has a medium body that goes down smooth, yet packs an adequate wallop of booze and flavor. One best check themselves with this before one wrecks themselves.

Overall: This was a great beer that somewhat meets the hype. It was almost too built up to me, but it was a damn good beer. The only thing I think that could have boosted my overall enjoyment would have been a bigger contribution from the malt to get more sweetness into the vibrant citrus flavors.

12oz can from a 4-pack poured into a chalice

Picked up this bad-boy in a trade with phyfe99. Will be the first canned IPA that I drink (although I've been eye-balling Modus Hoperandi for a while now).

L: Cloudy, hazy, hay-colored with lots and lots of fluffy head, and extreme lacing as it dissipates.

S: Lots of hops in the front of the nose. Crisp and clean hopitude with fruity sweetness in the back.

T: Lots of hops in the front, fading into grapes. The hops dissipate as it opens up. Lingering bitterness after the grape-finish.

F: Crisp and light.

D: Pretty good all around, balance is a little off ... too much bitterness lingering after the finish for my liking.

Thanks to LarryG for this one! Poured from 12oz can into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours hazy orange with a finger of fluffy white foam.

Smell: Very citrusy nose. Bitter grapefruit, sweet pineapple and mango. Some piney hops, faint hint of malt and a slight alcohol burn.

Taste: Grapefruit and hoppy bitterness, pineapple sweetness, malty sweetness at the end and a smooth alcohol burn.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, smooth and a dry finish.

Drinkability: I traded for this and I'm glad I did, I'm especially glad I have 3 more cans left. A very good citrusy DIPA from the east coast.

12oz can poured into a New Belgium Globe. There was some dirt or mold or something on the top of the can. I'm not sure whether to fault the brewers, distributors, or retailers for this, but the product should not be sold in this condition.

A: (After cleaning the can) This beer pours a very hazy golden orange. Particles hang in suspension, and one cannot see through the liquid. A one inch foamy white head sits atop the beer. Retention is moderate. The head dissipates after a short time, but a quick swirl of the glass will rejuvenate it. Plenty of sticky lacing is left behind.

S: Very citric and juicy. Grapefruit is prominent. Some melon rind and pine come out as well, and maybe mandarin orange. Not getting much in the way of malt, maybe some grainy cracker malt.

T: Bitterness is substantial, but mostly citric and grapefruit-like. Juicy melon rind and tropical fruit tastes try to come out, but only manage to skulk about in the background. The citric grapefruit taste overpowers everything else. There isn't much else going on here; some of the nuances I found in the nose fail to show up. Finishes dry with ample citric bitterness and faint cracker malt.

M: Moderate, smooth, and creamy, with low carbonation.

D: Good.

Notes: This beer has earned quite a bit of critical acclaim. It is good, but I don't feel it lives up to the hype. Citric grapefruit taste dominates too much and creates a rather one dimensional beer.

Can received as an extra in a trade with a generous BA thanks!

Appearance: Pours a cloudy honey straw with the slightest hint of orange in the center. The crown is 2 fingers, slightly off white in a hop oil color, shows nice retention and lace. If it wasn't so absolutely cloudy I'd give it a 4.5

Smell: Strong floral over herbal hop notes without much citrus presence. Slight bit of doughy malt base.

Taste: Same as the nose but with some more pronounced herbal hop bitterness. A bit "English" if I do say so myself.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Drinkability: Good.

Received a 4pack from Knifestyles, thanks Chris. Poured the little peace loving robot into a pint glass:

A - a yellow, golden color with an orangish hue toward the middle. Head is a light foam cap then dwindles into foam ring around the edges. Lacing retention is good.

S - Sweet pineapple and grapefruit with other citrus notes. Little bits of red apple and slight pine resinous but mostly citrus.

T - more piney and resinous than the smell. Bitter pine and earth with the malt coming forward. Sweet toward the end.

M - Tingly carbonation and a dry after feeling. The sweetness leaves a syrup feeling which is dried by the bitterness.

D - good drinkability. The dryness makes it hard to put away but that not always a bad thing. The bitter/sweet makes it...interesting... To be honest, I think I love the fact that Gandhi is depicted as a robot and find that slightly more entertaining than the beer itself, but it is still a decent brew.

12 oz can poured into tulip glass - thanks to phyfe99

Pours a completely hazed golden honey orange with a nice frothy head. Retains well while drinking and leaves plenty of lacing ringing around the glass.

Piny, almost herbal hops in the nose along with some toasted malts and a bit of sweetness.

Heaps of tingly, bitter hops explode right up front. Some pine and citrus mix in along with some grapefruit touches. There's a small amount of fruit sweetness which attempts to creep through before finishing bitter and dry with a bit of warmth.

Medium bodied, dry and tingly - plenty of hoppy feel on this one. Drinks pretty well, especially for the 8.8%, which is masked well - although with the amount of bitterness it'd be hard not to drown out any booze.

Quality DIPA for sure, superbly bitter (almost too much), and the can artwork is awesome.

3.68/5  rDev -15.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy gold with orange tint and a short and disappearing white head.

From a can so unlikely was affected by light and the can is also a current release but still smells skunky and like "sweat." Unpleasant "sweaty" character with an underlying fruity tone. The "skunk" blows off with a number of swirls and some time, or, one simply gets used to it because the flavors are somewhat inviting and appealing. Not the best nose I smelled.

Mouthfeel is rich, creamy and appealing. Elegant "little bubble" champagne carbonation and mouthfeel is inviting and of quality.

Flavors start a bit strange but really grow on you. Sweet malt/fruit front palate of oranges and some stone fruit character that quickly goes to a very bitter pine end palate and long pine/pine resin finish. Flavors are complex and layered, although not bright. This is very much a "bitter pine" character brew.

Finish is the most distinctive part of this brew, being very bitter pine and long and bold.

Can shared by Mike, thanks. Beer is yellow and really hazy, almost a wit level of haziness. Head is decent in thickness and made up of medium and small bubbles that leaves some lacing on the glass. I love the logo too, extra points. Head leaves some lacing on the glass.

Aroma is very citrusy, no malt at all, smells really nice.

Beer is light in body for a DIPA, about a medium body overall, really drinkable with a chewy resiny hoppiness to the whole thing. Its bright in the front without being overly sweet and its bitter in the back but not very dry. I really enjoyed this beer overall. I think its a great DIPA. Drinkability high.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz can into my pint glass. Sweet. The body is hazy golden color with lots of lively looking carbonation and about a centimeter of creamy white head that leaves sticky lace. The aroma is full of citrus, namely pineapples and orange and a bitter hop aroma to finish. Notes of caramel linger in the behind the citrus and hop aroma. Not quite as juicy as I had pictured this one to be. Actually, relatively dry. I feel misled by the aroma. However, this still taste pretty good. Bitter pine hops bombard my pallet and finish nicely with a decent malt profile and citrus finish. Again, just not what I expected. The mouthfeel is heavy and a bit dry, finishes bitter and slightly syrupy. And as with other recent double IPA experiences, this one hides the alcohol very well. This is one that I truly love, drinkable to no end for me. I'll snag this anytime I see it.

Poured into a tulip. Nice golden hazy color. Monster head on this one as well and leaves behind very sticky lacing. Nice.

Smells like hops. I get a lot of orange zest in the nose and just the slightest hint of cracker; like a saltine. Really nice.

The taste is incredibly dry and bitter. The finish mimics the aroma with the orange zest character.

Very light body makes this dangerously drinkable. Easily one of my favorite double IPA's

Consumed 10/18/10 received in a trade from zoolzoo, thanks Kevin, been waiting to try this!

EDITED 3/2/11 READ BELOW

A: Poured into Sam Adams perfect pint. Cloudy bright yellow-orange with a thick, creamy, bright white head. It looks happy!

S: I'm such a sucker for a fresh DIPA. Big bitter blast of grapefruit and pine resin up front. Grassy undertones with the noticeable nuttiness of some malt. Touch of tropical fruit at the very end, pleasant.

T: Tastes like a DIPA should. Huge hops and resin up front nice creaminess from a malt backbone. Opens up a little bit as it grows closer to room temperature, letting the tropical notes peek out a bit more. Slight alcohol on the finish, but it's a good warmth.

F: Medium body, just syrupy enough for a DIPA, doesn't let you forget it's a big beer. Prickle on the tongue, clean, bitter finish.

D: Definitely an assault on the palate, but what 8.8% DIPA isn't? I could definitely drink one of these with a spicy meal and one afterwards.

Edit: Original ratings- 4/4.5/4/4/4

Updated 3/2/11:
I underrated this beer. I've had several DIPAs in the last few months, and have decided this is a tough style to produce with exceptional results. Gandhi Bot is exceptional. The nose is one you can't stop smelling, the hop bite is perfect, and the mix of pine, grapefruit, and tropical fruits is as good as any. I'd make this beer a regular part of my fridge every release if I lived in New England.

This is an awesome offering from New England Brewing, something a trade friend showed me, and I'm glad. I'm a big advocate of cans, especially when local quality beer rests inside them like this. I still want some IST Kevin! You heard me!

Poured from a 12 oz can received in a package from kbanks13. Didn't know about this beer before hand, but if I did, it probably would have been a want.

Appearance- a hazy light orange color. Pretty much what you would expect from a good heffeweizen or witbier. Very appealing but not what I would really expect from an IPA.

Smell- Awesome. Tons of hops. Pine, grass, and a little sweetness underneath all that bitterness.

Taste- Very good. Bold grassy/pine/woody taste upfront that dominates most of the tasting experience with a hint of citrus on the back end.

Mouthfeel- A medium carbonated IPA. Not too thick or thin.

Drinkability- I would definitely come back to this one. It's good for when you are in the mood for good beer, but don't want to think too much about what you are drinking or want to have something super rare. Very similar Half Acres Daisy Cutter. I would probably chose Daisy Cutter over this, but all in all they fill a similar need.

Big thanks to Masterhomebrewer for this extra!

A-pours a cloudy dark golden amber with a creamy off white head. looks almost like a hefe only darker.

S-the nose has a hint ot toasty nut and grain, piney resign with a blast of citrus behind.

T-the taste has some syrupy maltiness up front with ample resign and pine, citrus is strong, hints of grapefruit and orange peel with a very assertive bitterness in the finish.

M-slightly rough and grainy feel on a relatively full chewy body with strong carbonation and crisp prickly finish.

D-decent IPA with big flavor and very assertive bitterness. hop forward and slightly messy flavors but still very enjoyable.

Thanks Allie! This is one of the many beers I received in the Secret Halloween package. I'm really excited to try a DIPA in a can! Poured into my favorite snifter.

A-Wow. The head that developed on this thing was outrageous. Huge two fingers from gentle pouring technique. Crisp pure-white with a creamy appearance that is disrupted with random large bubble explosions. Not much resistance to disintegration thus light lacing.

Nice orange body that with light becomes a yellowhead. Tons of carbonation displayed with bubbles coming from all over the place.

S- Tons of grapefruit notes on the opening. Folds backward yielding to the hops that are outlined with citrus. Tiny bit of orange on the ending molecules and a shocker. The surprise is the amount of pineapple I detect on the finale, fantastic.

T- Unfortunately the aromas don't transfer forward comfortably from the nose. The opening is malty, with some caramels, but that fades fast. The middle and finish are dominated with pine. It is a monster of bitterness that rivals some of the most proud hop bombs.

I want some citrus or grapefruit, but I guess you can't have what you want. Even the finish is pure bitterness

M- Creamy and full-bodied. Good amount of carbonation yields a non-distracting canvase for the flavors. Not many, but they linger around the lips and tongue for an adequate amount of time.

D- I'd enjoy this one again. Its a solid example of the DIPA style of beer, but its nothing fantastic. It could be better in many ways. If you love bitter pine flavor and something to sniff at, sure. If you have come to expect more from your DIPA, move along.

Big thanks to BigBalls for the extra. Cheers!

Appearance -- Pours a golden orange hue, hazy bordering on murky, with one finger of creamy eggnog head. Dynamite lacing.

Smell -- Grapefruit, tangerine, and tropical fruit are very evident, some floral/grassy aroma and juicy sweetness. I'm intrigued.

Taste -- Lots of fruity hop flavor up front: grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, and tropical fruit upon the sip, along with some mild pineapple juice sweetness. Biscuity malt is also in the mix, as well as a sturdy floor of hop bitterness: full, but not bracing. Finish is resin and candied orange zest.

Mouthfeel -- Medium-full in body with medium carbonation.

Drinkability -- Pretty damn good. I'd be all over this if it were near me. Citrus bomb for sure. Great malting, nice hop bitterness levels, immensely drinkable. Good stuff.

Poured from the can into my Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Got this in an awesome trade with portia99. Thanks!

A - Hazy yellow at the bottom makes its way to a darker hazy yellow at the top. Small white head rests on top.

S - Big tropical fruit hop notes in this one. A bit of citrus as well. A nice smelling DIPA but not mind blowing.

T - Nice grapefruity hop bite at first but it is kind of subdued. A bit of a lingering grapefruit flavor in the end as well. Not picking up on the tropical flavors I noticed in the nose. Really feels like it is missing some juicy hop character.

M - Medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation

D - I dunno. I enjoyed the smell more than the flavor. Could use some more lively hop character. I might try this again on draft but don't see myself seeking out any more cans of this.

Generous extra courtesy of jpmclaug. Thank you, Jason.

12 oz can into my Unibroue tulip. Pours a mega cloudy orange with a steady quarter inch inch that fizzes and pops at the center. When held to the fading daylight, evidence of yellow hues emerge. Legs go on forever and cling to the glass like a Chilean miner to his sanity. Too soon?

Massive tropical fruits on the nose along with unsalted crackers on the initial pass. A secondary swoop reveals something quite medicinal. It smells like a melding of cherry and menthol cough drops. Since the initial smell is quite enticing and the follow up is, um....less so, I'll split the difference.

Soapy pine, citrus, grass, and bitter with a mild though firm cracker backing. Firm cracker backing....sounds like the aspirations of a local politician in his bid for governor. But, I digress. Stupid barrage of campaign commercials! There's a mash of hops here that I wish profiled more of the tropical fruits and less of the soapy bitter grass. By no means unpleasant, but a bit of letdown after the initial olfactory salvo from the pop of the can. Seems somewhat haphazardly thrown together.

Medium bodied, bubbly and well carbonated, pops on the palate. Goes down quickly from the slick feel, but I'm not sure I'd feel compelled to work my way through another can at this time. No freshness date makes me wonder whether I got the true experience of this beer or not. The results are a mixed bag.

Hazed amber orange colored with a sizzling white head that settles down to a quarter inch high firm cap. Particulate matter floats around.

Intense aroma of tangerine and orange peel.

Flavor is immediately hoppy, good balance of bitterness and flavor, the full range of citrus with tangerine and grapefruit and giant Florida oranges, plus some pineapple and pine sap. Firm bitterness and just the right balance of honey malt. Alcohol strength doesn't detract.

Full and creamy mouthfeel, very satisfying. a bit of warming in the cheeks. Scarily drinkable. Tremendous DIPA from little old CT. Eassiide...

I really, really liked this. While I am a fan of cans have yet to try that version hopefully can get my hands on some to compar.

A - Golden yellow pours hazy white head.

S - Grapruit, floral, pungent really fresh and nice.

T - I loved this was very much in line with a west coast style lots of citrus and hoppy.

M - Again a nice hoppy mouthfeel sticks with you makes your lips smack just from the feel of the citrus.

D - Like I said I liked this found it VERY drinkable and look forward to trying the canned version.

12oz can into a tulip...Dark gold pout with lots of head that has incredible retention but no lacing at all. the beer itself is not appealing, not drinkable looking...The aroma is light for a dipa but really nice. The almost perfect amount of pine hops and alcohol, not at all strong but gives off what you are looking for in a dipa. Not a ton going on complexity wise, but wets my palate...The taste is a touch down, the hops aren't as smooth comes off a little more harsh. again its a little bit of a one noter. Wish more was going on...The feel is pretty nice very sticky and this is an easy drinker.

A lighter and smooth dipa, but nothing that wows you. Worth trying if your around it.
