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! Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - OCT 6, 2012

Gentle, but thoroughly hazy golden body has a strong peach-apricot hue and a big white head that is well-retained.
Huge nectarine-orange aromatics are juicy and there’s a touch of grapefruit pith to keep it balanced. Very minor honey with a touch of biscuit from the malts easily balance the hop character, and it feels incredibly fresh, lush and with a floral-spice character not often found with this hop. Tangerine juice-like finish with modest acidity and no alcohol or flaw.
Pillowy malts belie the low gravity and tickle the palate as the hop-infused liquid goes down. Moderate bitterness balances and there’s a wonderfully gentle peach-nectarine character with stronger tangerine/orange juice components. One of the "softest" textures I’ve seen in a beer, which isn’t always easy for such a low gravity beer. No resin and perfectly balanced and juicy. Like a NE IPA-lite. Very memorable.
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. ebone1988 (2123) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Sample at NEBCo with koleminer20. Aroma is citrus, lemongrass, grass, pine, fantastic. Appearance is golden, slight haze, white head. Taste is citrus, crazy amount of pine, grass, tart, nice. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, pine needles aftertaste. Overall, solid solid stuff. koleminer20 (3976) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2016
On draft at NEBCO. The pour is a hazy light gold color with a light white head that leaves some solid soapy lace behind. The aroma is nice and citrusy. There is a great bright grassy hop happening that I really like. Light bitter and sweet fruit on the back end. The flavor is similar. Great citric grassiness up front with a lingering sweet hop. It’s crisp and clean. I’m a fan. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a great carbonation and a lingeringly bitter, very juicy fruit hop on the back. Nicely done.
