Pours nice dark orange yellow. Good amount of haze with nice pillowy head. Nose is super ripe melon,berries with some minty scents coming through. Pretty dank. Nice! Mouthful is good and coating making the flavor profile all that much better. Front end palate follows the nose with nice ripe apricot and melon with flavors of berries , kiwi, and serious resinous mid to end palate blast leaves you rather stunned. The flavor builds throughout the sip and bitter dry finish is perfect. Flavor bomb with tons of tropical flavors make this amazing. A little more harsh on the palate than say, treehouse but every bit as good. This beer knocks it out of the park. Top of the line. Prob my favorite from this brewery. I need more!!!

Poured from a 12oz can into a snifter. Thank you Ryan for hooking me up with this one.

Pours a yellow-orange hazy body with a big frothy white head that reduces to leave chunky lacing and a good amount of retention. Real nice look

Aromas are citrus and tropical dank hops, also a little earthy and malty. Taste is smooth, easy citrus and tropical hops, finishing lightly bitter. Easy drinker and hides abv well.

This is a crusher, I could drink this all day even though it's a DIPA. Real nice.

12 oz can poured into a tulip. Darker gold in color. Dank aroma with grapefruit. Taste is the same...tons of grapefruit and a nice bitter finish. Medium bodied and not too heavy. Overall, this surprised me in that it’s this good.

Best IPA that Nebco produces. Perfectly executed. Get your hands on some as soon as you can because this is the real deal.

One of the greatest beers I've ever had. Can release yesterday and I got my maximum allotment of 12 cans. This is hazier, more obviously "New England" in style than NEBCO's other DIPAs. Peachy yellow in color. Thick, dense head that goes nowhere. Room-filling aromas of mango, cantaloupe, orange zest, strawberry, and spearmint. Overwhelmingly flavorful on the palate, insanely resinous and dry, still fruity, with a finish that lasts for minutes. In appearance and aroma, this reminds me of the best DIPAs coming out of Vermont like Foley Brothers Prospect. What sets this apart is the abundance of bitter resin and clean dryness that balances the fruit and creates a more exciting, more complete DIPA experience. Sometimes a beer is so well made and so delicious, you just have to say, "This is perfect." Well, this is perfect.
