From 09/08/14 notes. Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one; thanks Ross! 32 oz. screw top growler that is a few days old poured into a tulip.

Pours a murky burnt orange-yellow color with one inch of off white head and low to moderate carbonation evident. Citrus hops, tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine hops. Taste is lightly bitter, more grapefruit than the nose. Medium body and low carbonation, smooth and easy to drink.

Overall I thought this was quite tasty and is easily the best hoppy beer I've had from NEBCO (never had Fuzzy Baby Ducks)...I like it a lot more than Gandhi-Bot and their Galaxy Pale Ale, both of which I like. I wish it had a little more carbonaiton but the nose was awesome, and it was easy to drink. I would love to try this on tap sometime as I bet it would be even better. Worth checking out.

A very cloudy straw yellow color with a decent white cover and solid, scattered lacing. The aroma brings lemon oil cat-piss and grassy-pine biscuit. Very nice hop heaven. The flavor gives me a thick headful of lemon grass grainy hop. Grapefruit hints, bready honey, herbal grass. Lots of bitter flavors with some tropical fruit nuances.This is a medium-plus bodied brew with a somewhat sticky feel that manages to gain some lighter, brighter ideas in the finish with fine but effective carbonation. A hop lovers delight. Bitterness and bright grains in another excellent DIPA from NEB!

On-tap at the brewery just a couple days after conditioning. Served in a 668 tulip.

A: Clear deep gold body under a gorgeous two-inch head. Terrific retention and lacing. Perfectly gorgeous.

S: Just weird. Earthy fruitiness dominates, with tons of lemon, grape, passionfruit, gooseberry, and a hint of earthy smokiness. Each inhalation brings new aromas. Excellent.

T: Fruity, smooth, and juicy. Citrus, mango, peach, and lemon stand out. Faint biscuity malt and some earthiness ahead of the bitter, ultra-dry finish. Really complex, clean, and fascinating.

M: Creamy medium body with super-fine carbonation. Lovely.

O: Yet another amazing hoppy experiment from NEBCO. I certainly preferred the straightforward awesomeness of Fuzzy Baby Ducks, but this is wonderful in its own right. The Nelson Sauvin hop doesn't seem to have any limitations on its craziness. I've had this a few times since taking the notes above, and each time it's been different - but always delicious.

Cheers!

A-Pours like pineapple juice or orange juice. Completely opaque. Like a melted creamsicle. Head is light bubble-clusters that do leave some consistent lacing tattoos on the glass. This just looks absolutely awesome and unfiltered. Just how I like it. Beautiful.

S-Nose is world class. Uber-tropical. I get all the best exotic fruits. Pineapples, apricots, grapefruit (both ruby red and white), clementines, oranges and even some eucalyptus. Pine and late-Summer sunned grass. Light malt is sweet cracker. Phenomenal.

T-Thank you NEBCO. The Nelson Sauvin hops are exquisitely displayed. Apricots and pineapples are so stressed and delicious. Divinely juicy. Just incredibly ripe. Orange, clementine and grapefruit coat the palate in a resinous jacket of excellence. This beer finishes very bitter. All the tropics morph into a coercive chop of resinous pine and grass. The Nelson Sauvin hops are longwinded! Animal cracker malt crouches behind the world-class hop parade.

M-On cask, this beer is the perfect temperature and perfect feel. The softest carbonation. Resinous and slimy in the best way. Goes down just too easy. This is a perfect cask beer. Every sip is orgasmic.

O/D-God, NEBCO is one of the best in the world. This equals Fuzzy Baby Ducks in every way. The hoppiness is something to marvel over. One of the best beers I have ever had. Easily stacks up to the best on the East Coast (Hill Farmstead, Alchemist etc.). One of their crowning achievements.

Had via growler. While the beer is still world class, I found it to lack some of those super-tropical flavors I detected on cask. That being said, I can still taste the bitterness on my tongue. Still amazing. Had such a hard time grading this. Regardless, this is a top-10 beer for me at this point in my beer odyssey. Oh yeah, and this beer gets better as it warms!

64 oz. screw top growler, filled 6 days ago.

Golden apricot body. Clear and clean. Finger of dense, gauzy, off-white head. Some lacing. Profoundly hoppy nose. Pungent, earthy, resinous, grassy, but also ripe cantaloupe, and various tropical fruits. What an interesting hop (Nelson sauv.)! Might be a little candyish malt underneath it all, but this is all about lots of fresh, delicious hops.

Starts off with some pungent, resinous hop funk bitterness. Becomes more herbal, peppery, and fruity. Sugary malt fills in, but can't stand up to the hopwall. And what a deliciously, dry, bitter hopwall it is. Big herbal, minty, resinous hop bitterness into the finish. Long lingering dank funk and peppery resin. Ahhh. Medium-full body with a creamy, slightly syrupy feel. Terrific!
