64 oz growler of the second batch. I believe this was tapped on 9/21/12. Pour into a NEBCO pint glass. A - Like most hoppy beers from NEBCO, this is unfiltered. Hazy orange body that resembles juice. One finger high white head forms with large bubbling. Settles into a thin white cap with loads of sticky lacing and retention. S - Orange juice hops, pine, light grass, and some crackery malts. The finish is very faint, but its certainly of dank weed. Smell is excellent. T - Orange and grapefruit juice, a touch of pine and grass, light and crackery malts then BAM...a huge wall of bitterness. Its just so pleasantly bitter with clean and fresh notes of citrus. There is a little danky and spicy bite to round things out as well. M - Light to medium bodied with great carbonation. Very crisp with a lasting bitterness. O - Another amazing hoppy hit from NEBCO. This beer drinks like an IPA, but has the alcohol of one of those new-fangled session beers. This is extraordinary stuff!

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!

Pours thick juicy light orange lemon in color with a white head. Aroma brings juicy orange and some nice skunky hops, beautiful. Flavor brings non biting orange and tangy hops with a nice light zest ending.

Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruits, some citrus, floral, and pine. Taste of juicy citrus, pine, resin, lighter malts, and a hoppy finish.

On tap in a pint glass: Pours golden with a nice white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, flowers, grapefruit, other citrus, resin, and grapes. Taste is mainly tropical fruit and grapefruit. but also a hint of grape which I notice in a lot of galaxy-hopped beers. Light to medium body, smooth mouthfeel, tons of flavor for something this low ABV. Great beer.

Pulled straight out of the bright tank for a few of us at the brewery (how awesome is that!) Orange pour with just a little bit of head. Aroma is dank dank dank. Spicy resinous hope notes. This is a Galaxy showcase and it doesn’t disappoint. Earthy resinous spicy hop bomb. Balanced though and not overly bitter. Super tasty beer, but I was burping up Galaxy hops for the next hour.

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.

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.
