On-tap at Prime 16 during the NEBCO tap takeover 2013. The log kicked in 7 minutes. Unbelievable.

A: Hazy orange body under a finger of fine off-white head. Great retention and lacing. I have to ding it for lack of clarity, although I'm sure the cloudiness is only testament to its profound hop content, so I'm not worried.

S: Pure but complex hops. Herbal, floral, and citric all at once. Lots of grapefruit, pineapple, and especially mango. Amazing.

T: Follows the nose: rich, juicy hops dominate. Citrus, tropical fruit, and sticky vegetal notes are all huge. Really balanced and intense at the same time. Delicious in every way.

M: Smooth medium body, plenty carbonation. Nice and rich.

O: Yet another amazing single-hop beer from NEBCO - it might even by my favorite so far. I wish it hadn't kicked so fast, as I really wanted to get a second pour and drink it side-by-side with Fuzzy Baby Ducks. Having had them both (plus the Double Dry Hopped FBD cask) in the same night, though, I would definitely order Mosaic first if I had my choice. Incredible beer.

Cheers!

Looks hazy orange.
Great fresh, floral hop smell.
Clean hoppy taste; grapefruit, vidalia onions, sounds gross, however it is anything but.
The hops in this one are mosaic, which I'm not sure I've ever had, as I'm told they're hard to find, the hop slowly unfurls in taste as you drink.
Taste changes nicely as it warms.

Nebco does right by the Elm City .

Robust mosaic hop notes in the nose; mild bitter finish; round flavorful beer that is eminently quaffable.

Had back in 2013 at the Ordinary but then again in March 2015 fresh at the brewery itself. Really great sour and dank IPA here. Not too heavy on the body but very heavy on the hops. My favorite combo.

32oz. growler into a NEBCO 668 tulip.

Pours a frothy 1.5 finger white head with moderate to low retention. Beer is a cloudy orange-peach. Lacing is stringy and spotty with good stick. Solid.

Nose is grapefruit, passion fruit, citrus, and a tropical hop bitterness. Real juicy with a robust fruit presence. Aromatic. Very appetizing.

Opens sweet citrus, passion fruit, and tea leaves. More of the same in the middle with an emerging sap and resin hop bitterness. Juicy tropical fruit at the end. Finish is a dry, dank, hop bitterness. Some grapefruit pulp and zest in the aftertaste. Great flavor, nice character.

Light bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Smooth, warm and aggressive in the mouth and goes down smooth and dry. Messy finish with a sticky, lingering aftertaste. Real nice.

Continuing in the long line of under-the-radar, super-solid IPAs and DIPAs, Supernaut from NEBCO is no slouch. Great aroma and feel with a complexity of flavor and drinkability to match. Definitely worth seeking out.

Served on draft at Plan B in a pint glass.

A--As someone below put, just an inviting beer to drink. Gorgeous golden color, 1 finger frothy white head.

S--A very nice hop/fruit balance. Notes of orange, pineapple, tangerine fruits with hint of floral aromas to tantalize the senses.

T--Very citrus forward with a nice hop balance and bitterness at the finish. Very sessionable--a perfect summer IPA in my opinion, although I could drink it all the time.

O--A tremendous IPA. I enjoyed it very much. Kudos to Rob and Matt on a job well done.

Served on tap at Prime 16 in New Haven CT. Shaker pint glass.

The New England supernaut ipa was overall a different IPA than normal. Poured very dark copper. Some foam. Can't see thru. Pine sharp nose. Bitter open. Citrus too. The bite is sharp. Malt below but thin. Solid ipa. 4 4 375 35 375

Hard hop soft malt made for a good IPA experience
