Nebraska Brewing Company IPA – American IPA at 6.9% ABV | 72 IBU (US$2.31 at Specs Main Houston, 355 ml, packaged on 28-Nov-2017, acquired 3-Mar-2018, reviewed 9-Mar-2018)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with one fat finger of rocky white head, good retention and spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, citrus, caramel, dank pine, earth. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet tending slightly high, high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium slightly oily body, moderate carbonation, lingering and building bitter finish. (4/5)

Bonus points for the wide mouth can, which would at least theoretically obviate the need for a glass, were one without proper glassware – good one for packing on a hike, for example. More importantly, it’s a surprisingly solid fairly authentic West Coast IPA coming from the bald-ass prairie. (16/20)
