This beer is another triumph by NEBCO. Just picked up a few fresh four-packs from the brewery. Rich golden-orange color with a thick, durable head. Aromas of orange zest, keffir lime leaf, fresh melon, and resinous pine. Dry yet generous and extremely long on the palate (honestly, count in seconds how long the finish goes). Similar to G-Bot in that they are both basically perfect DIPAs, but with noticeably different flavor profiles due to the different hop bills. I am officially a NEBCO fanboy.

Poured from a can, fresh from the brewery dated 2/2/18.

Looks great, a slightly cloudy golden copper with a thick white head that persists all the way down.
Smells nice, fruity and aromatic. White wine grape, pine resin and berry.
Taste is similar hop tones, grape and subtle pine and citrus, maybe a little apple and spice. Some light caramel malt gives a round deep base.
Feels smooth, a bit oily but it's not too heavy. Strong enough bitterness and bright flavors keep it lively. A somewhat herbal and grassy character.

I used to think I didn't like Nelson Sauvin hops, but I had clearly never had a beer that used them so well. I'm still not sure I would choose to drink this over a more typical American-hopped IPA from NEBCo, but I can definitely enjoy it.

And glad I got it fresh!

Many thanks to Knapp85 for this can. Canned on 9/25/17.

A - Nice clear dark orange pour with very frothy white head and lacing, foam is extremely sticky on the sides of the glass.

S - Extremely fruity aroma, very sweet aroma, gooseberry, grapes.

T - All hops from start to finish - white grape, gooseberry, and very fruity with a subtle resiny white grape skin on the back end.

M - Big bodied with light prickly carbonation and extremely dry.

O - For 8.2% this drinks extremely well and the alcohol stays out of the way. Definitely recommend.
