Bottled on 11/10/17. Poured from bottle into glass at home.

Look: Pours light amber orange in color, high clarity with large fluffy long lasting head. No haze or visible particulates.

Smell: Strong hoppy aroma: fruity, juicy, with melon, citrus and grapefruit. No detectable malt aroma.

Taste: Juicy hoppy flavor. More melon and citrus. Small amount of light malt flavor detectable. Medium sweetness. Low bitterness. No detectable alcohol flavor.

Feel: Light body. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Full finish.

Overall: This beer has great fruity, juicy aroma and flavor. It could be more intense, but I had another bottle several weeks ago and it was even better, so it may just be that it drops off quickly. The description calls it "hazy" and while it has the juicy flavors, soft mouthfeel and low bitterness associated with modern hazy IPAs, it is crystal clear. A very good IPA that would probably be best on super fresh.

A mild IPA with GREAT flavor. That flavor is a hint of fruits. Not a lot just enough so you can still enjoy the traditional beer 'taste'. Similar to Kinkaider 4 County. I'm glad I found this one!

On tap. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, off-white head of fluffy foam. It smelled of orange and other citrus fruits with a hint of pine. Nice tropical fruit taste with piney bitterness and sweet caramel.

Hands down on the best ipa’s available. Great hop flavor and aroma. Great finish, not overly bitter. This beer was worth me joining beer advocate to share. After hundreds of great and disappointing IPA’s, this ranks at the top for me.

Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adam's glass. Hazy light amber color with about a one inch head that dissipates after a minute or two. Has a nice rich hoppy aroma. Taste is citrus/grapefruit. Similar to “Juicy Fruit” gum, but not as sweet. It is a bit sweet with low bitterness. Very refreshing and flavorful with a light mouthfeel. This is what I look for in an IPA, as I’m not a fan of intense bitterness.

This is a really good modern IPA. Pours a slightly hazy translucent orange gold. Small lacing head seemed to stick around for most of the pour. Very nice cantaloupe, ripe mango and papaya aroma with a hint of floral. Taste is instant juicy melon and smooth and sweet tropical fruit flavors. Very little bitterness with lots of hop flavors. Smooth malt backbone on this beer that is there to merely deliver the hops flavors. Balance is perfect, sweetness is balanced with moderate carbonation. This is the best IPA in Nebraska.
