A beer that I have returned to again and again over the last four years. It's a welcome release form the NEIPAs of Treehouse and similar wannabes. To me, it has an almost floral/perfumish undertone. It never disappoints. Three years ago, finding it was a challenge, and I live 20 minutes from New Haven/Woodbridge, CT. Now it's always on for growler fills and showing up in cans regularly. Still, it's a classic and I guess one that I've grown used to which makes me laugh when I hear people from the Boston area who can practically walk to Trillium and Treehouse stating that they wish they could get their hands on some Bot. Nonetheless, I seem to never tire of this beer. NebCo makes a lot of good ones but this one holds a special place in my heart. It's rich, slightly earthy, a little malty, a little floral, bitter and just damn good.

Even with the advent of the NEIPA, which I love, I still think this is one of the better crafted IPAs in New England.

Growler picked up at the brewery yesterday.

L — Pours a completely clarified golden copper body with a lovely 2.5-finger dense white head produced with moderate pour. Great retention and lacing
S — Grapefruit rind, new sneaker, dank weedy resins, pine sap, diesel. Smells like a fresh wet-hop beer, or just a straight up fresh picked hop crushed between the fingers
T — Rubbery new sneaker, spruce tip, red grapefruit pith, bitter herbals
F — Medium+ mouthfeel, medium- carb. Quite lastingly bitter, but still pretty drinkable
O — Reminds me a lot of Foundation’s Epiphany and some of the less hazy Alchemist offerings. Tastes like a west coast DIPA, but is simply fresher and more lively. Good price

85/100

Excellent DIPA. Maybe overhyped, but very good nonetheless. Hoppy, little juice, no boozy taste for 8.8%. Highly recommend.

Tried this at Eli Cannon's in Middletown, CT. Half a finger head with decent lacing. Piney hoppy aroma. Hoppy taste with pineapple notes. Good local beer.
