Thanks to Martin for hooking me up with this one. Poured from a 32 oz growler into a Kuhnhenn snifter.

A-Cloudy golden orange with small head and minimal lacing.

S-Pineapple, orange, and pine hops.

T- A subtle sweet malt flavor with notes of ripe pineapple and dank pine. Catching a little funky flavor towards the end.

M-Smooth with moderate levels of carbonation.

O-Excellent sessionable pale ale with a lot of flavor and great balance.

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.
