Poured into a pint glass. Surprisingly dark. A nice look with a very clear almost copper hue. A fairly aggressive pour produced a one-finger off white head that settled quickly into a wispy cap, leaving some nice tracks behind. Big citrus aroma on the nose, with grapefruit, orange, some pine, and some dry malt. No toffee or caramel, but definitely more malt than I'm used to. The taste was as expected - no surprises - bitter grapefruit up front, followed by orange, pine, resin, and a prominent bready malt presence. A hint of caramel but not sweet. Very bitter with a clean finish. I like this better as I go - a nice classic West Coast IPA.

Out of a one-of-kind can. My first review I prefer IPA's. That should count for something. ;) This beer actually got me to register an account! Simply put, its not world class but worthy of higher BA SCORE (currently 86) Its an outstanding beer rather than the current rating of very good. Admittedly, I care less about look, smell or feel. I prefer rating by taste. Its a great tasting IPA. The pop top can is very unique as well. Simple joys, simply put. In other words its good enough where I would seek to find and try their other beers if ever in Nebraska area (I enjoyed this one in San Antonio, Texas purchased from an HEB grocery store there). Keep venturing out!

Definitely the weirdest can opening I have ever seen - more Campbell's soup than standard beer can pop opening. In any case - rich amber bronze body with a thick resinous head. Light haze level. Balanced nose, definitely some malt up front, but earthy and light pine hops follow. Nice smooth bitterness that sticks around a bit at the end. Some juicy sweet flavor as well, but not overly cloying. A nice IPA!

Nebraska India Pale Ale has an extremely thick, creamy, slightly off-white head, a clear, bubbly (etched tasting glass), amber appearance, and profound lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet (but, not overly sweet), strong, bready malt and rich hop resins (fruity, but not in an effeminate way. The citrus note stands to attention). Taste is of rich, sweet (not sugary) white bread and bashing and admirable bitterness. Citrus- yes. Canned pineapple? No. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Neberaska India Pale Ale finishes dry and memorable.

Pours a deep copper color with a big two finger beige head that falls slow and laces really well.

Aroma is good fruity overripe citrus notes, nice pine mingled in a good caramel malt base that seems to ad its own fruit notes.

Taste is wow big malt base partially caramel with some toasted notes. Hops are bitter grapefruit rind, good pine notes more like deep seated bitterness not bright like i seem to prefer. Pretty good for a malt forward IPA.

Mouthfeel is medium pretty average carbonation.

Overall not bad just not my favorite style of IPA.
