Tried this at Eli Cannon's in Middletown, CT. Nice light lacing with about one finger of head. Very stong pine and grapefruit aroma with some lemon notes. Taste is the same with some stonefruit. Overall great dipa.

A: slightly hazed with powdered top / visible carbonation

S: Aromas of grapefruit pulp, tangerine and passion fruit mixed with some light biscuit and pale malt base

T: grapefruit punch, bittered to the point at first that the tongue is slightly overwhelmed at first. Soon after, tangerine and nicely caramelized sugars mixing with tropical fruit

M: medium body with a nice level of carbonation

O: overall very goood. I prefer Locust Reign to this but the mosaic highlights are nice and easily the strongest Mosaic hop forward beer that I have had.

Fantastic! I am a mosaic fan and love Supernaut. This beer is exceptional in every way. Easy to drink with a great nose and super taste. NEBCO always does a great job and this is no exception.

Pours a hazy, deep golden orange color with a large bubbly white head. The head leaves in a hurry but settles into a nice white halo around the top of the beer, leaving just a bit of lacing as it goes.

The aroma is a mosaic apocalypse. Pungent, musty grapefruit and mangoes, some orange, with just enough green peppers and onions to let you know they exist.

The taste is very much like Supernaut, but on steroids. Mosaic is by far my favorite hop, and it really shines on the flavor. Tons of tropical fruits and berries, followed by some subtle grapefruit and even more subtle pine. The malt is there, holding the flavor up with just a touch of doughy bread flavor.

The feel is medium bodied with soft, lighter carbonation. A bit sticky, but very smooth. The alcohol is present but we'll hidden.

Overall, an absolutely fantastic DIPA that utilizes the mosaic hop about as well as a beer possibly can. Hard to imagine Fuzzy Baby Ducks being much better than this. I'd be shocked if people aren't lining up for this one very soon.

Golden orange in color. Fairly hazy. Dank. Citrus for days. Grapefruit pith. Fresh squeezed tangerine. Lime. Nice tingling bitterness. Bright. Dry finish. Superb.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

appearance- Orange amber in color, cloudy, and pours a one inch head.

aroma- Big mosaic hop aroma consisting of juicy citrus, berry, and a little bit of pungent grapefruit.

taste- Follows the nose pretty closely with juicy citrus upfront, a little bit of berry in the middle, and it finishes with a bready malt and citrus/grapefruit hops.

feel- Medium/full bodied, medium carbonation, soft, minimal bitterness, and semi clean finish. There's definitely some body to this so while it has a dry finish it also some residual sweetness in the finish.

Overall- Big, juicy, citrusy, and soft. Definitely a great DIPA a nice bump up from supernaut. The feel and texture is really damn good on this beer and I'd probably score it higher but mosaic hops only do so much for me. Hard to get better for aroma and feel for a dipa though.

A very very clear gold by today's NE IPA standards. A few specks in suspension add some glitter. Holiday berries, winter citrus, and pine aroma...mostly tart with a nuanced sweetness.
Grapefruit pith, lime, piney resin. Only a small amount of tropical sweetness before a really sour tangerine takes control. Actually quite doughy. Warming, and alcohol content is noticeable. Astringency is evident, but carbonation is a little weak for me.

Growler poured into fluted snifter.

Orange, bit hazed but not totally. Thick white head, foamy, settles slowly and leaves a ton of lacing.

Bright citrus zest, grapefruit, sweet and crackery malts, maybe a hint of caramel. Tropical fruits also, juicy, ripe.

Noticeable malt presence balances the assertive hop bitterness. Grapefruit juice and rind, tropical fruit.

Moderate carbonation and medium body, bitter, but not overly.

Great balanced DIPA, smooth, bitter, fragrant hop aroma.

here it is... the best beer I have ever had from NEBCO. better than fuzzy.... better than double fuzzy.... they perfectly imperialized Supernaut. cloudy as hell (but not hazy), golden orange. same smell and taste profile as Supernaut, but way bigger. so much mosaic without getting into the onion-zone, this is the perfect example of a single hop mosaic beer. I hope they brew this often, grab it while you can.

Incredible! Was mad it took me over a week to get to it but it was worth the wait! Very similar to Supernaut but the Mosaic hops really punch you much more. Fantastic creation from NEBCO!

A top 3 offering from NEBCO. Perfect integration of the Mosaic hop, combined with an ideal malt presence and tropical flavors. The transition to DIPA went well for Super Supernaut.
