A 12 fl oz can with no canned on or best before date on it. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: A hazy orange colour with a nice two finger white head that had decent retention and left nice lacing.

Aroma: Orange, mandarin, citrus rind, ripe mango, pineapple and grapefruit.

Taste: Very nice juicy tropical and citrus fruits. Orange rind, mango, pineapple and pine with some nice sweet malt to balance. Bitterness is mild and restrained.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Wow, just wow. This was just an amazing brew by NEBCo. A really really good IPA that is just up there with the best of them. I would love to drink this everyday. A must buy beer in my book.

Cloudy amber appearance with nice head that desipates quickly. Aroma is hoppy with a hint of citrus. Taste is more of a balanced hoppy citrus with some bitterness.

Look: Amber Golden color. See a little bit of light through it. Fluffy one in a half fingers off of white head.

Smell: Citrus Fruit orange, tangerine. Biscuitsy, Grainy malt sweetness. Grapefruit peel, pine. Some floral notes. It's smells balanced.

Taste: It follows the nose pretty much to a tee. Upfront your greeted with those citrus fruit notes. Orange, tangerine. Not overly juicy almost leaning toward citrus peel which carries over to the mid palate where you also get those biscuity, grainy maltiness. it's not overly sweet malts. The malt adds a nice balance to the hops. In the finish is where you get the hoppy bitterness. You get that grapefruit rind, piney bitterness along with some floral, herbal hoppiness that sticks to the sides of your tongue.

Feel: Light to medium body. Soft, not a whole lot of creaminess. It's really smooth and balanced. Finishes pretty dry and makes you want to keep drinking more of it.

Overall: I'm really glad I got to try this. It's really balanced between hops and malt. Neither one really out shines the other. This is a good beer, but not the 99/100 it's rated. I have no doubt this beer was deserving off the rating when it first came out. But now with so many great IPA'S out there it's lost a step. It definitely leans towards the west coast style of IPA'S. This beer still though has a place at the table, but just not at the head. 89/100
