Fully opaque tan-orange with a minimal head fading to an off-white ring.

Pungent, spicy and vegetal notes mix in with citric and tropical aromas adding to bready malt with a mild feel and minimal bitterness.

Arrived today with Kushy out of stock, but this nice little beer just tapped. Keeping with NE IPA image (or as a previous poster on the forum noted Nebraska IPA), this is a visual mess with a cloudy orange/tan hue and smaller head squeezed into a 12 oz tulip. Wonderful fruit aroma with a mix of citrus and topical scents. Also more background the faded herbal and earthy, "green" hops that do not distract from the fruit.
The flavor is a mix of the above without the intensity or richness. Mild malt backing but enough heft to push towards a moderate feel. A light and soft smooth bitterness never takes over and blends and rarely dominates as it seems to fade with further takes.
A nice, pleasing and enjoyable hop forward beer.
