I was fortunate enough to score several growlers of FBD this holiday season. I'm not sure what to say about this brew; all I want to do is gush. It looks and smells beautiful. The flavor is centered around the hops but remains completely balanced. This is without a doubt the best and most drinkable IPA I have ever had. It has, in many ways, ruined me, because I think about it constantly and wish I had more, but this is the only bad thing to say about it.

The best my kitchen has ever smelled was when I was rinsing the growlers.

If you hear about an appearance by the Ducks you should be sprinting to NEBCo.

So is this a 100 pt rated beer because those that reviewed it as such have never had Zombie Dust, Perpetual, HF Citra. Do the ratings on this site drill down to specific hop categories. IE. Is this reviewed as a 100 pt IPA or a 100 pt Citra hop IPA. Either way I am missing the point. Really good beer for sure. 100 pt really good beer. Not so much.

Finally! Ending 2013 with an amazing brew...
on tap at coalouse in Stamford, ct. Poured into pils glass. Murky Orange with a bit of white head and tons of sticky lacing. Cant tell you how much I love a murky beer...
Huuuge pine and citrus fruit hop aromas...crisp malty notes as well. Taste is just domination of hops..lots of lemony citrus and a bit of sweet can do hop up front but finishes with a big bitter pine. Really nice balance...some slight biscuit flavor works really well. So much flavor its insane. The mouthfeel is a bit bitter but still amazing. Overall this truly is a fantastic IPA...one of the best I've ever had. im not usually a bitter ipa guy but this just works so well...I'm already back on the hunt for this again.

Inch tall white head on a dull orange body. Head recedes to a cap and collar. Sticky step lacing.

Smell it through the bag baby! Big citrus notes noticed from a couple feet away.

Orange/slight lemon taste upfront. Big time bitterness on the tail end of each sip. Would guess around 7%abv

Medium mouthfeel, medium yet biting carbonation.

One of the better IPAs I've had in a long time. Could drink a lot of this. Thanks woosterbill!
