This canned brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated body hazy yellow orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The semi-sharp mouthfeel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of bitter hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 24, 2017
Rated on 10-21-2017. Canned 08/03/17. The appearance is a medium sized smooth off-white head that is mostly lasting, golden transparent body, lively, fast rising carbonation, and spotty, soapy lacing. The aroma presents citrus hops, pine hops, fruity, mango, tangerine, sweet, grapefruit, grass, floral, caramel, and malt. The flavor is medium bitter, citrus hops, pine hops, fruity, toffee, grapefruit, tangerine, sweet, some mango, caramel, malt, and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is medium carbonation, smooth and some crispness. This beer is medium bodied. This beer has a bitter dry finish and very tasty. The flavors come together very well making this a beer worth trying and a beer that I would purchase again.

Pours a hazy orange color. Almost no head and no lacing. A grainy aroma. Bitterness immediately and not much else. Maybe some pith flavor.

The_Osprey (9148) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2017
August 2017 - Can shared at Chriso's Pre-GBBF Shindig. Thanks! As 'Nebraska IPA'. Clear golden yellow, still with a bubbly off-white head. Aroma is a little floral, notes of chalk. Body is smooth with soft to tingly carbonation. Taste is again chalky and floral, stones, malt character is a little buttery. Simple and OK. (5-4-6-4-13=3.2)

superspak (6015) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - SEP 13, 2017
12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 8/9/2017. Pours slightly hazy deep golden/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine, citrus rind, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, honey, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy, and sticky/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.9%. Overall this is an excellent IPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and quite refreshing to drink; despite the aggressively drying bitter finish. Insanely dank and vibrant hop character; great malt backbone with no residual sweetness. Great mix of Citra and resinous/rindy Columbus hop character. A very enjoyable offering.

Scopey (15704) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2017
Can at C&R Pre-GBBF Tasting 2017. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The aroma is soft, sweet, oily, brioche, candy, caramel, tangerine, white sugar and orange marmalade. The taste is slick, oily, resinous pine, toffee, caramel, sticky, piss, bread and some orange citrus peel. Medium body, fine carbonation and oily mouth - feel. A reasonable IPA which wouldn't really stand out in a crowd.

Sampler at brewpub. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Lots of pine and grapefruit on the nose and tongue. Finished with some solid bitterness. Not bad.
