I need more Nelson in my life...call this a double NE IPA.


Well this is interesting. Tropical fruit from near the pit plus pithy citrus plus interesting notes of white wine grapes and juniper berries. Densely flavored with minimal bitterness and sweetness. Damn good.

Slightly more bitter than you get with most BG beers - melon rind, dry papaya, grassier bitter hops towards the back of the palate, good but not the best BG IPA

Growler

Pours hazy orange, eggshell film for a head.

Smells of orange citrus, coriander, sourdough bread, chamomile and herbal hops.

Flavor is of biscuit, orange juice, zest, coriander, chamomile and cardamom.

Full body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Excellent dipa, very juicy and tasty. Goes down smooth. A definite must try.

Growler purchased from Brew Gentlemen in Pittsburgh, PA.

This one pours a very hazy orange color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like orange juice, grassy hops, berry, and pineapple.

I wish there was a little bit more bitterness, but the juicy character on this beer is just killer, so I don't mind too much. There's lots of tangerine/orange, pineapple, and some sweet berry flavors, along with a subtle grassiness underneath it all. There's no malt character at all.

This is super juicy and soft, with a good level of carbonation.

It's almost getting boring reviewing these BG beers- they're always just so good.

Really opaque, basically pulpy orange juice with a large, creamy, thick khaki-yellow-beige head.

Smell is peppery toasted cracker, reminding me of a local favorite White Rajah, with pineapple, peach, green onion, and lime. Okay, wow. That toastiness really just pops. It only gets more and more powerful as it warms, and it is absolutely explosive. It's so damn potent, the toasted cracker aroma almost feels like a solid.

Taste is peach, guava, juniper-pine, and of course toasted cracker. Kabuto is very herbal and complex.

This beer tickles the back of the throat, is semi-bitter, nicely balanced while chilled, and finished semi-dry.

750ml swingtop being drank out of a Brew Gentlemen tulip glass:

Look: Pours an amazing hazy dark yellow to light orange color with about an inch of head present. Lacing is very present and retention is great!

Smell: Notes of citrus and pine are very present. Smells fantastic!

Taste: Getting lots of citrus and tropical notes along with some pine. Also the notes of pine are more prevalent in this DIPA than their other DIPAs. Also a hint of alcohol burn in this one.

Feel: Medium bodied!

Overall: Another mighty fine DIPA from the guys at Brew Gents! These guys are killing it on these DIPAs! This one is a step below Akamai, Albatross, and Foshomo in my opinion but this is still really solid no doubt. I suggest you get down there and get a growler fill of this before its too late!!
