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.

Hard to believe this a single hop Nelson. I love Nelson but this is an onion bomb.

Growler fill at Oliver's in Albany, NY.

Pours a murky orange. It's incredible, but this is a nearly opaque orange. Looks like pulpy orange juice. Incredible look to this. No head whatsoever, with very minimal lacing.

The aroma is pretty good too, tons of fruits- grapefruit, orange, pineapple, peach, passionfruit, and white grapes. Not much malt in the aroma.
The taste is where it gets weird, and clues me in to something being wrong with this beer. It is flat as hell. No carbonation to speak of, just basically concentrated, slightly bitter hop juice. Tastes like a poorly kept cask version of the beer. Clearly there was something wrong with the keg. I can tell that when poured and kept properly, this is an outstanding beer. But it's just wrong now. The fruit flavors I expect to get due to the aroma are muted, and washed out.

Mouthfeel is flat, thin, with no carbonation.

I really need to try this again, I clearly did not try it in optimal conditions.

This was disappointing. Didn't stand up to any of the other IPAs in the share. Surprised by the reviews.

Love most of NEBCO's IPAs but this one just underwhelmed. Wasn't memorable.

Big grape nose. White grape is the star. Some pine. Fairly boozy. Balanced bitterness. Body is quite thin for a double. Hop notes trend toward grassy.
