Awesome IPA. Very well rounded and was insanely drinkable. With so many top notch IPA's out there now I can safely say that this is definitely top 10.

7/5/15 DE bar

Pours dark orange maybe even a little red. Decent head and nice look.

The smell is a citrus bomb. Nice hoppy presence with a ton of citrus fruit. The smell is top notch.

The taste is really good too. The citrus hit you and it has almost a sweet start but fades into a dryer finish.

The feel is good but I guess the one knock is that it builds a bit on the tongue. The dryer finish kills the citrus a bit too much.

Overall very nice and top DIPA. I enjoy it a lot and would love to get my hands on more.

L: Hazy orange, head fades fast.

S: peach, pine, and a hint of buttery bread

T: sweet bready malt. The hops aren't super bitter, but I feel like bitterness is mostly what they bring to the table. Not a lot of tropical flavors. There's some citrus and dank, though. It's kind of savory, somehow. And it's really nicely balanced.

F: really drinkable for the ABV

O: This makes me think of old-school IPAs like Finest Kind. Satisfying, balanced, no faults, but nothing mind-blowing.

This is a good, solid DIPA, but not 98 worthy. I think the hype around this beer adds at least 5 points to the BA rating.

The nose is very nice. A good, floral IPA. the usual citrus notes are there and a little berry too. The nose reminds me of Indeed's Let It Ride IPA

Feel: a little on the sweet side, could be slightly dryer for my taste, but not overpowering at all. Overall fairly well balanced.

Taste: Citrus hops, a little berry hop, not much malt character (its a IPA after all) not overly bitter, but I have a high bitterness tolerance. Overall it didnt disappoint

Overall I dont get the hype behind this beer. Its a good, solid DIPA, but its no better than many that are on the shelf every day of the year. I think NEBCO has some awesome marketing and hype behind the beer. Too bad they're changing the can. I bought it for the can as much as the beer. I'd give this beer a 92 BA score. Its very good, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get it again. Being in the Northeast, I would go for a Berkshire Brewing Brewer's series IPA bomber for a buck less than 2 cans of the Bot.

This pours a nice clear orange with a decent head. A solid DIPA but not in the same league as some of the top VT and MA IPA's I have had. It has an OK nose, and is drinkable for sure. But not a 98 IMO
