I don't get this beer, a malt driven IPA that tasted old and stale (drank from can 1.5 weeks after canning). The hops were not well executed. I will not be trying this one again.

12oz can into an Alchemist stemless teku.

Nose is pine, citrus and cane sugar. Aromatic with a resiny hop bitter bite. Beer opens citrus, pine, grass and a yeasty, resiny bitterness. There's a rounded malt presence that mellows out and balances this one. Body is medium with moderate to low carbonation. Smooth on the palate and goes down silky and a little oily. Accented going down with a bone dry aftertaste.

The body is what stands out about this beer. Super smooth and drinkable.

New England Brewing just keeps bringing the goods. Had this from a can poured into snifter, from the most recent canning release in March. Look is spot on for the style..golden/amber with some very nice lacing. Smell is spot on for a heavily hopped Nelson double IPA. Tastes very smooth and similar to a top tier Vermont double IPA. Hops dont come out and bite, it's surprisingly very easy to drink for a double. This is probably my 3rd favorite double IPA from New England. That's saying something. Cheers!

Medium orange hue, big frothy big bubbled head with great lacing. Aroma is super melon, cantaloupe and orange citrus forward. Those Nelson hops really shine through, yes plenty wine grapes and tropical fruit. No detection of maltiness, and subtle hop bittneress. For a DIPA, super session like. Impressive.

Poured from can dated 3/10/2017 (yesterday! That's fresh!) into a rt tulip glass. It's hazy Orange with nice foamy head. I pick up some light citrus & melon in aroma but something else is there...the aroma of a hot wine grapes from the Nelson Sauvin.

The first taste is amazing, like nothing I've had before as this is my first Nelson experience. It's sophisticated white wine grape and light citrus. It has a perfect carbonation and has a dryness but drinks so smooth.

NEBCO continues to impress. I will seek this and other Nelson hopped brews more often.
