Served on-tap in a stemmed-tulip glass at J. Timothy's in Plainville, Conn.
A: Poured a bright, slightly hazy light amber color with an orange tinge and a thin, creamy cap of ivory foam which retained well and left some nice, clingy lacing on the glass.
S: Very complex, pleasant and fruity aroma. Nelson Sauvin hops have given this DIPA a great depth on the nose, consisting of pineapple, peach, citrus fruits and a spicy, floral scent as well. A very inviting, fresh and hoppy smell.
T: The flavor is an intense blend of citrus and spiced, fruity notes. There's a mild, caramel malt sweetness up front, but this is quickly overrun by the strong, hoppy flavors and bitterness. Flashes of orange, grapefruit, pine and mango leap effortlessly over the inexplicably light palate before finishing with a semi-sweet and bitter hop finish.
M: Light alcohol tinge but a mostly balanced mouthfeel here with a slant on the hoppy side, naturally. Very drinkable and enjoyable mouthfeel.
O: Coriolis is one of those beers that has a lot of hype around it and actually lives up to it. A whopping 8.2% ABV and hop profile built on an unfathomable amount of fresh Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand, this DIPA is a fierce, fantastic drinking experience for hopheads and American Strong Ale fans alike.

Don't do a lot of reviews, but wanted to get this one on record. Lovely beer overall, excellent use of the Nelson sauvin hops. I am a big fan of the single hopped DIPA.
Look is clean golden, almost orange without much haze, light head but it does foam up nice and clean white.
Aroma is huge on this beer. Piney citrus blast hits you hard and fast like a welterweight prizefighter.
Taste is in the same arena. Piney up front with a bold citrus flavor to finish. Nothing subtle about this one, love it.
Mouthfeel is a creamy, smooth, mild carbonation. Works well and goes down easy.
Overall, this is another great beer from NEBCO. Try and get a hold of it before its gone!
