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.

I did not like this beer on the first couple cans of the 6-pack, but it has grown on me. Yes, it is definitely maltier than you would expect from an IPA. But, the hop profile is there and it jives with the malt to create something interesting. The flavor is strong and full-blooded. Still not great, and I would classify it as a hoppy Amber rather than an IPA, but its enjoyable.

A pleasing and consistent citrus, grapefruit, orange flavors. Not a weak straight IPA. a bit of backside bitterness.
