COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship brew, and a year round offering in kegs and cans, Nanticoke Nectar starts with citrus notes that progress into bold grapefruit and pine, then finishes clean with a balanced, hoppy bitterness. A subtle yet deep English malt profile elevates the hop notes while a slight sweetness underlines the brew.

Solid hop resin profile with a sweet backbone finish. Easy drinking for a high alcohol beer.

TW DE. Powerful smell of hop, malt, spice and floral. Theres some fresh melon too. Its initial fruity hop and very bitter tapering off to grapefruit and melon. Harsh stuff. Insanely bitter and finishing malt and juicy. Lighter body but that bite, whoa.

Can on 2/15/2017, canned on 2/06/2017. I have had this numerous times before. Pours a mostly opaque orange. Aroma of pine and citrus. Medium bitterness, pine, orange. Body is medium, quick aftertaste. Good stuff.

Can at R.F.D. Perhaps mid-Atlanric IPA needs to be a new category. Not as hoppy s the NW, not AS juicy as New England.. mellow but flavorful.. Not a palate crusher.

Wow! This packs a great, grapefruit, citrus hop punch! First had it at Maxs in Fells Point, MD, but recently picked it up at Atlantic Liquors in Rehoboth, DE. Nice bitter finish. A must try for hop heads.

From a CASK with Galaxy hops. Pours a cloudy dark gold color with a finger thick white head. A nice citrus aroma is present. Medium-full body, taste is a great balance of malt and hops. Finish is more of the hops, not very dry like I was expecting. Excellent! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lamas (1635) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Can. "RARTOONS": 08/30/16. A clear deep copper pour with a thick antique white head. Resiny pine, grapefruits, zesty citrus rinds, a spiciness, and caramel dominate the pleasant aroma. Medium body. Almost sugary sweet and grainy upfront in the taste with some caramel. Grapefruits and citrus rinds at the tail-end. Well-balanced. I assume thats what they were going for since this is relatively fresh. Decent enough, but I dont see what all the fuss is about.

JDBaker11058 (2090) - Maryland, USA - SEP 15, 2016
appearance: clear medium gold, soapy to foamy white head, minimal lacing. aroma: grapefruit (and general citrus), with some refreshing whiffs of pine and a hint of caramel and toast. taste: slightly sweet up front, some juicy citrus and floral hop notes, well balanced by golden graham cereal and light caramel. finish: smooth and dry, a bit of lasting sweetness, with piney, resinous hops to clean up the back end. notes: Really well done IPA. Very good palate; drinks lighter than the abv indicates. Draft at Urban BBQ in Rockville.
