3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at J. Timothy’s in Plainville, CT. Hazy gold pour with a white head. Smell is crazy pine, grapefruit, citrus, floral hops, pine, and pine. Taste is a hop bomb, floral hops galore. A nice citrusy spice hop presence. Not much of a malt backbone which explains the low ABV. A summer IPA but not categorized as such. Drinkable beer, but when it comes to rating the style it is out of balance.

Growler filled at the source yesterday. Pour has a golden orange color with a coating of white head. Aroma has grapefruit, citrus rind, juicy fruit, light bitterness, and some malt to hold it together. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation medium low. Flavor is super juicy, tropical fruits, citrus, grass, light pine bitterness, and a nice dose of malt that stands up to the hop assault. This is a home run for these guys and stands up to the best west coast stuff. Very clean and the session strength means I get to drink the whole growler!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 32oz growler poured into a tulip. Pours cloudy amber/golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of fruity and citrusy hops, plus a nice light caramel/pale maltiness. Flavor the same with a lot of galaxy hops and the perfect maltiness to balance it out. Average texture. A good pale ale.
EDIT 4/7/14: Still hazy copperish. Aroma of a lot of fruity hops and light malts. Very nice.

Draft @ Coalhouse Pizza. On the maltier side, this brew is lightly hopped with notes of fresh bread and a bit of citrus from the hops. Not a bad beer, but forgettable.

Awesome job by NEBCO on this. Really strong grassy citrus aroma and a nice crisp dry and lightly bittered pale ale with a lot of hop character.

On tap at Prime 16 - New Haven, CT. Did I just pay $2.50 for this? Yes, I did, thanks to Prime 16’s ass-kicking happy hour. And holy crap is this worth it. Easily the best hoppy beer bargain I’ve ever had. Softened fruit and pine aromas, fantastic quaffability and that emergent "Hill Farmstead" hop juice taste. A good balance with malt and plenty of awesome hop flavor to keep this American and exciting. Very, very nice.
