Hey NBS crew! Hoping to drop by again on this glorious Father's Day. I had the great experience of getting to go to The Veil (hype was met, imho) this week for the can release and met a really cool dude in line who hooked me up with a few cans from past releases. This is one of those and hopefully I can work through a couple others today without just blowing out the palate. Cheers! 4.44/5 rDev +8.3% look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5 This can is admittedly almost 3 weeks old which is probably not as fresh as it should be but it is overall very enjoyable. Pours a slightly hazy amber (more orange than red). Nice foamy white head with solid retention but it does fade to a ring after a few minutes. A bit of patchy lacing but not much (or anything like the absurd lacing on some of their other beers). Nose big citrus hops with a nice bready malt note and hint of typical spice from a red IPA. Grapefruit is the biggest citrus note but there is a bit of dank grassiness present to. Not smack you in the face huge though. Flavor follows but bitter hops are far more present than would be expected from the nose. Really nice balance here of sweet, bitter and some citrus notes. Not as dank on the palate as I expected. Lingering sweetness from the malt is nice on the finish. Definitely makes this feel pretty crushable. Feel is relatively typical of the style too - full body, well rounded, a bit brash with a nice drying feel from the bittering hops. This is one of the more tightly carbonated beers I've had from them and it works really well to help lift this off the palate a bit. I wasn't sure what to expect from these guys with how juicy most of their brews are - this is probably the most traditional brew I've had from them. They did a great job but I like some of their more adventurous offerings better.
