Looks hazy orange.
Great fresh, floral hop smell.
Clean hoppy taste; grapefruit, vidalia onions, sounds gross, however it is anything but.
The hops in this one are mosaic, which I'm not sure I've ever had, as I'm told they're hard to find, the hop slowly unfurls in taste as you drink.
Taste changes nicely as it warms.

Nebco does right by the Elm City .

32oz. growler into a NEBCO 668 tulip.

Pours a frothy 1.5 finger white head with moderate to low retention. Beer is a cloudy orange-peach. Lacing is stringy and spotty with good stick. Solid.

Nose is grapefruit, passion fruit, citrus, and a tropical hop bitterness. Real juicy with a robust fruit presence. Aromatic. Very appetizing.

Opens sweet citrus, passion fruit, and tea leaves. More of the same in the middle with an emerging sap and resin hop bitterness. Juicy tropical fruit at the end. Finish is a dry, dank, hop bitterness. Some grapefruit pulp and zest in the aftertaste. Great flavor, nice character.

Light bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Smooth, warm and aggressive in the mouth and goes down smooth and dry. Messy finish with a sticky, lingering aftertaste. Real nice.

Continuing in the long line of under-the-radar, super-solid IPAs and DIPAs, Supernaut from NEBCO is no slouch. Great aroma and feel with a complexity of flavor and drinkability to match. Definitely worth seeking out.

Served on draft at Plan B in a pint glass.

A--As someone below put, just an inviting beer to drink. Gorgeous golden color, 1 finger frothy white head.

S--A very nice hop/fruit balance. Notes of orange, pineapple, tangerine fruits with hint of floral aromas to tantalize the senses.

T--Very citrus forward with a nice hop balance and bitterness at the finish. Very sessionable--a perfect summer IPA in my opinion, although I could drink it all the time.

O--A tremendous IPA. I enjoyed it very much. Kudos to Rob and Matt on a job well done.

Served on tap at Prime 16 in New Haven CT. Shaker pint glass.

The New England supernaut ipa was overall a different IPA than normal. Poured very dark copper. Some foam. Can't see thru. Pine sharp nose. Bitter open. Citrus too. The bite is sharp. Malt below but thin. Solid ipa. 4 4 375 35 375

Hard hop soft malt made for a good IPA experience

Super excited to try this. Poured into a tulip glass. This beer has a very nice head with some nice lacing, the colour is a murky orange. Smell is of some tropical fruit and maybe even a bit of lime. The taste is orange, pineapple, mango (lime in there as well). No real hoppy bitterness to this. Mosaic is certianly one sweet hop, absolutely no bitterness to the finish at all. Another NebCo hit!
