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.

Brewed in honor of the first (and hopefully annual) New Haven Craft Beer week. Poured into a pint glass.

A) Nice cloudy yellow (not sure if this is unfiltered or not). Minimal head and there is some minor lacing.

S) Light hops and nicely floral.

T) Starts off sweet, get some grapefruit notes up front and the finish is to me lemon zest. I like the bitterness.

M) Nice medium carbonation.

O) At 4.8% you can drink this all day. It's nice to have a beer that is this sessionable but still packs a nice taste. Hopefully they save some for a cask for part of the New Haven Craft Beer Week festivities.

Fresh on tap at prime 16 on thurdays night new haven of beer week.

Nice color with a bit of cloudy haze. not much of a head as it was busy and sat on bar but what was left was thick. Lacing was nice through out the beer.

The nose jumped out at me with seriously fresh floral and citrus notes. Definitely got the passion fruit from the galaxy. Also some fresh dank as mentioned in previous review.

Taste followed suit with all the main players for a good hoppy pale. grapefruit rind, passion fruit and a considerable grassy hop freshness that really made it special. Must have fresh hopped the shit out of this one.

Mouthfeel was just right for this beer and with this below 5% abv very sessionable.

I love Sea Hag but this one might just top it for me. Can this fucker ASAP!
