look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the growler on 10/4/12. Have had this beer a few times before but just reviewing it now.

Really good looking beer! Hazy light orange color with a one finger, off white head. Retention is pretty good but the lacing on this beer is all the way down the glass. Just awesome!

Fresh citrusy hops in the smell. Not a particularly strong smell but refreshing.

Taste is nothing short of awesome! Blast of citrusy hops up front with some piney notes on the back end. Orange and grapefruit come through beautifully here. Excellent amount of bitterness that hits the palate perfectly.

Mouthfeel is very nice. Good amount of bitterness, not too harsh. A little high on the carbonation.

Overall this is an insanely drinkable beer. Splitting a 64 oz growler with a friend but could easily take this by myself.

One of my favorite offerings from nebco, hope the decided to bottle or can this soon!

32oz. growler into a Pizza Boy pint glass.

Pours a 1 finger coarse white head with low retention. Beer is a semi-clear pale orange. Lacing is layered and thick with good stick. A good looking beer considering the container format.

Nose is citrus, pine, cane sugar and a grapefruit hop bitterness. A touch of soapiness too. Moderately aromatic.

Opens papaya, citrus and grapefruit. Some pine hop bitterness with a light malt backbone for balance. End is hoppy and citrussy with a bitter finish and a lingering, sticky hop aftertaste. Pretty much what I want from the style.

Light bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Slick and quenching in the mouth and goes down smooth with some light bubbles. Clean finish with a slightly filmy aftertaste. Appropriate for the style.

NEBCO is slowly starting to be recognized for the pale ales and this one doesn't disappoint. Nothing really stands out here but that's a good thing. Very drinkable with a nicely balanced flavor profile and appetizing nose. Worth trying.
