The numbers speak for themselves. Pours orange and clear. Minimal lace, moderate head, full citrus flavor. Incredible.

Pour from a 64 oz growler (filled today) into a 668 tulip glass.
A - Pours a color that I have come to expect from NEBCO, just a beautiful hazy unfiltered golden amber color. One fingers worth of white foam forms and disappears quickly. Moderate lacing and retention after a swirl but it seems to sit rather still.
S - Huge wave of tropical mango, grapefruit, clementine and some pineapple with an earthy and dank undertone. Not quite on the level of the Simcoe cat urine thing, but just a bit pungent. This smells fantastic!
T - It starts off with tropical fruits of mango, pineapple, oranges and grapefruit but its immediately met with with a wall of crackery malts. More of that danky earthy pungency with a bit of grass. Very balanced with the hops making their presence known at every second. Finishes dry with a juicy flavor and a light bitterness. Mouth feel is rich and oily with perfect carbonation.
O - Another incredible one-off IPA from the boys at NEBCO. This is a really impressive beer that showcases the mosaic hop so well. I actually enjoy this quite a bit more than Fuzzy Baby Ducks (I’m not a citra fanatic) and in terms of other Mosaic hopped beers this falls just short of HF Society & Solitude #6. Very impressive and damn tasty and far too drinkable.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy golden and has a small ring of white bubbles that stick around. Smells of citrus, melon, grassy, some pineapple hints. Tastes of resin, some sweet citrus, peppery, some grassy hay like hints on the finish. Very different and very enjoyable.
