Finally.
It's not easy for a guy in Massachusetts to get his hands on one of these, but I was able to squeeze in, after work, at the brewery on a can release day...the timing was finally good for me. Probably in my favor was the fact that it's not cheap, so...unlike the Fuzzy can releases, this one doesn't immediately sell out.
This is my first Nelson hopped beer, and it definitely has a unique smell/taste...white wine is an accurate description.
From a can into a flare, it has a typical NEBCo look...slightly dark amber...looks filtered, but has just a slight haze. Decent carbonation and mellow head retention. I can sense a little alcohol bite...you'll know you're drinking an Imperial.
The fact that cans aren't aren't released all that often (I think the last was 2 months ago), I'll definitely hit them up, when possible, to keep some of these in my occasional rotation.
NEBCo does no wrong.

Good, not great. Filtered, copper colored DIPA. Super drinkable but overall, didn't wow me. Glad I got to try it though. On tap at Mohegan in Comix club.

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.
