32oz growler from NebCo. Pours a hazy pale burnt orange with an inch of head. Tons of lacing. The aroma herbal and citrus hops. Light stone fruits with some bready malts. The taste is lots of the Nelson hops, herbal and citrus hops. Toasted malts and some berry notes. Slightly bitter finish with more of the malt flavor coming out at the end. Medium bodied with a dry mouthfeel. Drinkable and bitter. Reminds me a bit of Lawson's Super Session #2. Overall, solid Pale Ale I'll buy again.

Had at the brewery today, been waiting to try this one since I love the Nelson Sauvin hops lately. Poured a lighter gold color with some cloudiness. Great aroma of hops bursting through at first sniff. The flavor is fantastic, light cracker malt which gets kicked out the way by a ton of Nelson hops, just really herbal and citrusy and refreshing. Taste gets dinged a bit because the malts can be a bit grainy. Feel is most excellent, super light and easy on the palate, not too clingy. Overall a superb beer and I actually prefer this one over #2 on a hot day.

This gem came from the growler on release day, big thanks to cousin Eric. The finish is very different from the initial taste which makes this brew distinct. You are able to taste a full range of flavor followed by the galaxy finish. Pours a hazy amber color without much head. The smell isn't overpowering. Extremely drinkable. Well built. Another great from NEB.
