3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Can: Muddled and a lighter colored apple cider; opaque with rising bubbles and a beige skin and collar that leaves some lacing web. Aroma is some botanical, lightly spicy hops, and some resins. Spongy citrus and orange with just a hint of lemon pledge. Taste is substantially more bitter than the aroma; some pungency with light pine, herbal hops, hint of grapefruit juice and some bitter orange peel with a potent, rosy aftertaste. Very mild malt, some toasty bread and crackers. Smooth and slick mouth feel with low carbonation and a medium body. Pretty good IPA. In all honesty, not far behind Gandhi-Bot (for me, at least). Very drinkable, nice bitterness.
Here we have the venerable flagship of local heros, Nebco, and it is pretty good, but not among their best (its not baby ducks!). It pours a darker than expected amber gold with some cloudiness. It has a fairly typical aroma of wet grass and citrus. The taste is a smooth easy drinking hop fizz with a slight malty finish that lingers long. It’s often the best beer in places with crappy selections around here so it serves a valuable community service in helping you avoid macrobrew trash. Good for (historically) first dinner dates with your sexy new love and (presently) figuring out what you’re gonna do the night before your epic Vermont beer weekend while blaring some black metal of course.

I cant belive this is just cascade and noble hoos. Very bright citrust hips, light caramel backbone. Old school, but I wouldnt mind drinking this all day. Onslow (1496) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Pour from a 12oz can. medium amber brew with creamy white head. great lacing. Aroma is crisp citrus with strong grapefruit notes. Taste is moderate malt up front with resin and citrus kicking in quickly. Transitions to a very citrusy end. Crisp, clean with excellent character. First rate IPA.

On tap at Rizzuto’s in Bethel, CT. Dark gold color with a thin head. Great cling and good head retention. Pine needles and bitter citrus aroma. Flavors are toffee, pine, bitter citrus and stone fruits and biscuit. Slightly sticky mouthfeel, but otherwise clean and crisp. Nicely balanced. This is not an over-the-top hop bomb. Well made and very enjoyable IPA. 17Beer (354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 28, 2016

Had this on tap at Three Sheets in New Haven. This is their house IPA. It is always on tap. Hoppy but well balanced.
