4.63/5  rDev +8.2%
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!

Serving type: growler
