4.01/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Can poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a hazy light orange color, with a finger and a half of off white foam of tiny bubbles. Good lacing as the head dissipates to half a finger, fueled by a large amount of carbonation streaming up from the beer.

Not as aromatic as I was expecting. Just out of the fridge cold, the beer has some faint citrus and pineapple mingling with some caramel malt. There's also a light metallic tinge to the aroma.

Better hop flavor on the tongue, nice sweet orange, pineapple, and papaya with a good amount of bitter citrus and pine. A little bit of alcohol sweetness in there with the caramel malt to lessen the bitter hop flavors. Dry finish with lingering citrus and pine as well as a bit of malt sweetness.

Lighter side of medium body with a very active carbonation, really dries out the tongue after several sips. A decent DIPA, though I expected better aroma from a canned IPA. Still enjoyable to drink though.

4.3/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Thick, opaque orange DIPA that almost looks pulpy. Solid 1+ finger white head, nice retention, good lacing.

Huge hop nose, laced with pine and citrus: grapefruit, lemon, and peel. Bright and acidic, maybe only a hint of biscuity malts. This beer means business.

Definitely hits you with a violent dose of hops. It's a little sweeter than the nose implies, but not much; there's a strong, dry, astringent hoppiness, and the finish is citrus peel. Pine and grapefruit, with some background biscuit malts.

Very smooth and oily; coats your mouth. No significant sting, no hint of the 8.8% ABV. Mild aftertaste of citrus peel that is slightly unpleasant. Definitely leaves you wanting the next sip, despite being relatively thick (medium feel). Not quite creamy; this is where HT, for example, really pulls away.

This is a solid and aggressive DIPA that doesn't hold anything back. The flavor profile reminds me of some single IPAs, with the fullness, mouthfeel, IBUs, and ABV of a DIPA. This makes for a pretty reasonable every-day DIPA, if there is such a thing, and while I don't think it's quite in the PtE/HT class, I certainly think it belongs in the class right below them.

4.13/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Straight out golden straw color. Large, slightly off-white head stays for awhile. Thick rings of lace. Looks like a great example of the style.

Nice and resinous. Get a lot of citrus as well. Definitely gets juicier after sitting for a minute. Some sweet malts are noticeable underneath the hops.

Much like the nose. Tons of varying hops. Pineapple and orange blend into resin. Very well balanced. Medium body, and coats the palate well. Drying and bitter finish.

Great drinker! Highly recommended for the style!

Big thanks to Mersh for a trade on this one. Can poured into snifter.

A: 4.25 Slightly hazy, a dark golden color, pours with less than 1 finger of head that reduces fairly quickly leaving a little lacing.
S: 4.5 Pineapple, lemon, lime, pine. All around citrus blast that packs a great punch.
T: 4.5 Strong citrus flavor up front and lingering. The aftertaste also picks up a bit of the pine, with the malt backbone as a compliment. This beer is balanced extremely well.
M: 4.5 This is the feel I expect from a IIPA. Smooth, slightly carbed, late dry and bittering feeling.
O: 4.5 Ghandi Bot nails what the IIPA style is all about. Strong citrus aroma, very well balanced, leaving me disappointed I can't have easy access to it. Nice job NEBCo!!

4.46/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Can poured into Heady Topper glass

Pour: Hazy orange, white head appearing to be sticky, leaving soapy lacing.

Smell: Tropical and citrus, orange, pineapple, grapefruit, a sweet tangerine. Piney hop does come through as well with a slight resinous characteristic too. This is a very aromatic DIPA with a lot going on and very pleasing.

Taste: Bitterness right at the front almost smacking the palate. Pine and resin and floral hop bitterness. Also the tropical notes come through but I don't get them as much in the taste as in the smell. Some sweetness I do notice in the middle cutting the bitterness somewhat. This has so much going on that each sip brings out more and more. Fairly bitter aftertaste as well with a dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium with just the right amount of body. Sticky feel keeps it lingering and creating a bitterness that lasts too. Finish is big and bitter, in a good way.

Overall: Damn fine DIPA NEBCO has here. This one can compete with the likes of HT, Pliny, and others any day. Complete pleasure to have a chance at this beer. Drinks very easy considering the ABV.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz can poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a very hazy light amber orange with a one finger white head. Leaves some real nice lacing on the sides. Too cloudy to see any visible carbonation. The head dissipates to a thin covering.

S: Intense hoppy aroma on this brew. Loads of citrus fruitiness with some floral notes in there as well. Mild sweetness in the background from the malts. Solid IPA aroma. Earthy aroma provides some herbal tones.

T: As anticipated from the aroma this is one hoppy beer. Isn't overly bitter like some double IPA's but instead has a full hop flavor. Malt sweetness rounds out the beer but doesnt detract from the hops in the least. The alcohol is lost in the hop flavor. Herbal nuggety aftertaste stays in the mouth for a while.

M: Fairly light body for a double IPA which makes this go down smoothly. Creamy mouthfeel with a touch of stickiness. Very easy drinking which is dangerous.

Overall this is a phenomenal IPA. Hops have great flavor without being overpowering. Very well balanced considering its extreme style. This is certainly a must try for any hophead.

Pours a hazy tangerine orange. Nice frothy white head. Decent retention and really good lacing.

Nose is very earthy. Hops, hops and more hops. Grapefruit and tangerine, some orange and lemon.

Taste is mostly hops. Very earthy and bitter on the finish. Some citrus fruits when it first hits my tongue. Nice and very fresh and bitter.

Mouthfeel is slightly creamy. Moderate carbonation.

Overall this is a nice beer. Well worth the try and I would definitely drink again.

Thank youse are in order to tectactoe, who knocked down this long-time want as an extra in a box that arrived last week. 12 oz. can with nice, bizarre art. I often think brewers do more than just...beer.

The pour is classic IPA, clear orange with a booming head & readily evident carbonation racing to the top of the beer. Hops in the nose are aggressive to the point of being pathological. Grapefruit, citrus, lemon, pine. Hop forests jammed in the nostrils. That's how you kick off a IIPA.

Gandhi-Bot IIPA tommiehawks me right in the middle of the tongue. Bitterness kicks out & will no doubt leave a mark: burn-level bitterness. Luckily, right behind the hook kick of bitterness are the half-drowned hops flavors: leaning heavily towards the pine, with citrus present, & either unripe grapefruit or more bitterness. Malts? Harry Dresden jammed those malts up the ass of a Red Court vamp. Gone. That leaves this light for a IIPA, but damn, I'm taking gulps like I'm in six feet of water, & I'm only five eight.

Impressed. New England brewered this up right; you put IIPA on the label, hit me with a lanyard of hops, keep the malt in the silo. We need more IIPAs like this in Minnesota. Excellent beer.

Pours a dark golden in color with nice two finger white head. OK retention with nice lacing. Strong pine aroma with lots of grapefruit and some tropical fruit. Lots of pine and citrus on the tongue with some dank. Finishes dry and bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Extremely smooth. Overall, an easy drinking, complex DIPA! I'll be seeking this one out again soon.

Thanks to Ultra-Plinian for the big NEBCo hook-up. DIPA from a can, yes sir! Orange haze, all in my brain. There's really not a better way to describe the look of this one. The slightly gray tinted, mostly white head waxes and wanes down to a thin, thin skin that never completely leaves the top of the beer bare, and lasts for quite a long time.

Pretty stankin' dank, with lots of pines, grass, and some resin on the back end in the aroma. Very hop oil-y over the first half, with the second half lending a heavy hand to blasting citrus peels, oranges, and some grapefruits. Your typical, citric and resiny hop profile... Good, but nothing too ravishing. Some herbal pepper on the back end, and I'm not really pulling much malt out of the aroma here.

The taste follows through nicely, with personification of the ashy and piney characteristics of the hops. The fruit is understated, but it's there; juicy grapefruit and some lighter, bitter citrus notes. There's a hefty bitterness that strikes the back of the tongue somewhere around mid-palate and leaves a long lasting impression. It's not gonna knock you off your socks, but it's pretty potent.

I finally get some resemblance of malt in the very finish with a bit of bread and crackers that only adds a touch of sweetness, perhaps because the lasting bitterness of the malt is still massaging my palate hard. Medium bodied, not too thin and not too thick, and surprisingly not as resinous or sticky on the mouth as you'd expect given the taste. Carbonated well enough to keep things rolling.

Very nice DIPA, though it's nothing to lose your shorts over. I can see why people love it, but it doesn't do much to stand out above the rest. That's not to say that it still isn't pretty delicious, though, because it certainly is. Goin' hard on that piney and citric hop swerve, this will make most hop heads happy, or at the very least, pleasantly content.

Super delicious local DIPA. Pour from the can is a nice orange amber. Not much head.

Nose is super resin y and sticky with pine and hops.

Taste is full of big juicy hops. Just a little citrus character. Really rich and full

Nice medium full body.

Delicious. Get it fresh.

This beer always makes me very happy. I would give it a perfect rating, but I have had the Peekskill Double Standard on several occasions, and I have yet to try those fabled IPAs from northern Vermont. It is just as good out of the can as it is on tap. Hopefully their new canning machine will not change that.

Can (2013)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, trxxpaxxs!

Slightly hazed golden amber. Moderate near-white head. Somewhat sticky.

Fantastic aroma. Huge amounts of tropical and citrus fruit hop character. Moderate sweet malt backbone and just the fainest touch of an alcohol presence. It all comes together very well.

The flavor is even more juicy and citrus-forward than the aroma. Nice bitterness that accompanies. Discernible, clean, lingering, sticky, citrus and passion fruit flavors. Some sweet bread and very mild alcohol present at room temperature.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation.

Very, very tasty. This was much better than I was expecting.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: A moderately hazy, unfiltered looking dark golden beer that produces a good head stand when poured. The two finger of off white head is made of rocky foam with very good retention.

S: A huge citrus hops nose with pineapple, lemon, resinous pine and a dry hopped herbal aroma dominating. There is a medium-low caramel malt sweetness and some low floral alcohol notes there as well but this is all about the hops.

T: An aggressive hops bitterness with a strong citrus hops flavor and enough malt for support. The hops flavors match the aroma with pineapple, lemon and some pine. The malt brings a low caramel flavor but the balance is pretty bitter. The aftertaste is of hops bitterness and lemon.

M: A medium bodied beer with a medium-strong level of carbonation. There is a moderate alcohol warmth on the palate although the alcohol is fairly well hidden overall.

O: We have a hophead winner here, this one makes my short list of awesome beers I've met this year. An aggressively bitter beer that showcases citrus hops but remains balanced and doesn't get harsh.

Thanks to ChadMc3 for this one. Poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a hazy orange-gold color with about 1/2 inch of off-white head that had good retention and better than moderate lacing.

A blast of pine hops hit the nose first, with solid citrus hops right behind them. There was a low, but noticeable, malt profile. On the tongue, the pine was smooth in the front, mixed with the citrus in the middle and had a sharp citrus bite at the back of the palate., The low malt didn't offer much of a counter point, and the bitterness lingered at the back of the mouth.

The body was a bit fuller than typical for the style, but wasn't heavy at all. Drinkability was very good, especially if you're a fan of bitter IPAs. Overall, a pretty good brew, one that would be in my regular rotation if it were local to me. A must try if you see it.

This is truly the best beer I've ever had...Had it uber fresh....14 hours (or so I was told). The first thing that hit me was the grapefruit aroma explosion. The most incredible aromatic beer ever. Mouth feel was slick & smooth buit not overly syrupy. My only complaint is that my wife liked it too....Now I need to double down. If you ever have a chance to score some of this, do it without hesitation.

12oz can from the Potsdam NY IGA for $4

Appearance - Hazy amber colour with an average size fizzy/frothy off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes.

Smell - Hops, malts, caramel, apricot, grapefruit zest/juice

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel and hops. There is also some grapefruit, apricot, and resin/pine. It ends with a quite bitter hop aftertaste.

Overall – I can see how some compare this to Heady/Pliny. It has a great dose of hops and a nice fruity/malty balance to compliment them. I can't find a date on the can, so I have no idea how fresh this is.. but even still, this is a world class beer worth seeking out.

RE-REVIEW: NEBCo. Gandhi-Bot (6/30/2013)
Straight pour from a 12oz can to a DFH IPA glass; no canning date, but a fresh batch of this came into our market about a week ago, so it’s about as fresh as it’s going to get around here.

Appearance (3.75): A good two fingers of pale tan foam (meringue-colored?) comes off of the pour, capping a rich orange-amber body with a moderate haze to it. Retention is moderate, fading at a pretty typical pace and leaving broad swatches of lace in a collar at the top and scattered splotches here and there as the beer recedes.

Smell (4.5): A very dense mixture of weedy resin and sticky, sticky-sweet citrus fruit juice/nectar comes out of this automatically: pineapple, passionfruit, papaya, guava, and mango are in full force with this shit, underscored by an intense, almost acidic, dank resin character. There’s also some rich, sweet, baked-good-kinda malt character, like browned sugar cookies and caramel churros. It’s like some really, really high pastry chef started making guava and papaya tarts and used brown sugar instead of white.

Taste (4.25): Jeezum crow (the Vermont state bird, anyone?)—the beer has only a modest bitterness at first, but then in the mid-palate it unfolds into an almost tangy-sticky resinous character that straddles two very different sides to the hop character: bitter grapefruit zest on one side and on the other, rich, earthy tobacco mixed with the almost smoky, earthy quality that papaya flesh has (to me, anyway). It transitions into a citrus peel bitterness in the finish that still clings to some of that weedy resin. And that finish hangs around for a while, leaving a vaporous, kind of booze-was-here feel that blends well with the resinous, bitter hops profile. Meanwhile, there actually is some malt body underneath all of this: overbaked sugar cookies, toasted, dark, rustic wheat bread, and . . . just lots of hops. Some booze detected, for sure, but as with most better DIPAs it kind of blends into that hops bitterness and resin.

Mouthfeel (4.25): A moderate carbonation that has the finest prickling character (definitely at least in part thanks to the booze) that foams easily but not aggressively on the way down. Tons of hop oils and some booze heat help to dry out the beer’s chewy, rich DIPA body. Somewhat on the full side of medium weight, but not definitely heavy.

Overall (4.25): This is a great DIPA, it really is. It holds its own to most DIPAs out there, and now that it’s not so hard to find and more accessibly priced (every month or two we get a new shipment over here in upstate NY, typically priced at $12 per 4-pack—really not bad for a big, heavily dry-hopped DIPA from a small brewery), it’s a good pick. Would I take Heady over this? Yeah, definitely. But I can’t get Heady at my local shops. But would I take Gandhi-Bot over at least 90% of other DIPAs available to me in my market? Yes, yes I would. And, my girlfriend loves this beer—that’s called a win-win, motherfucker. Damn good beer, and it’s very, very nice to be able to get this now with some regularity and without trading.

Can poured into a mason jar.

A - Cloudy, dark orange, tiny head

S - Perfect. Smell's citrusy, resiny, and refreshing...very inviting

T - Taste is spot on. Very citrus for an IPA from this area. Reminds me of a west coast IPA, which is a plus in my book. 4.75 for taste because as it is touching perfection, it needs the tiniest bit more of malt presence....this would then be the perfect DIPA

M - Just about perfect. Full body but drinkable...little bit creamy. 4.50 because I feel that if this beer had a little bit more carbonation, it would add to its perfection

O - I'm lucky to live in New Haven as I get to and have enjoyed this beer countless times in the last two years. I like to venture out and try new beers but this always has a place in my fridge, as it should in yours!

12oz can, no discernible date. Tasted 6.9.13

A – Pours a nice hazy dark orange color. Clearly unfiltered, head is a light cream white and leaves abundant, sticky lacing.

S – Tropical fruits, sweet for a DIPA, some mango, pineapple and peach notes. Quite floral as well, lots going on here.

T – Bitter and earthy, floral again, not much sweetness here, but dry notes of apricot, pineapple, and peach come through. A light and estery pine note comes through on the latter end of things.

M – Medium/Full bodied, carbonation is ample and the body of the beer sticks around and provides a nice lingering finish, allowing for more flavors to develop. Quite bitter, and nicely so, it does have the stickiness to it that defines the style, but it is very well balanced by the ample bitterness.

O – A hoppy, flowery, bitter, masterpiece of a beer. Nice change of pace from the sticky/sweet norm for the style. The floral and earthy notes in this one are what set it apart. Nice, unique peach notes to it as well. Balance is nice, and I am thankful to have tried this one.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with a big, big head and huge hop aroma! The taste follows suit, very juicy, with a fairly diverse hop profile. Maybe just a tad out of balance towards the hops, but I'm very forgiving in that regard! Mouthfeel was very good, it has some body and is well carbonated. Overall, this is a very, very good DIPA that belongs high on any hop head's list. It actually tastes and smells similar to Heady Topper. I will snatch this one up any time I see it in the store!
