COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one's a beauty; a rich and full bodied India Pale Ale with complex malt character blended with cascade and noble hops. The end result is a beer that satisfies the "hop head" out there and won't chase away the newcomer. Drink it. It's good.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2016 i have had this beer fresh from the brewery, its one of the best ipa’s i have ever had. its not overly done. the malts and hops are perfectly adjusted, its a smooth taste with just enough hops to please any hop head. the caramel malt hits the palate first with a nice bite of hops on the finish. love this!

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 (1481) - 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.

Shot (520) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2016
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.
