An outstanding hop from New Zealand, Nelson Sauvin, is generously used throughout the brewing and dry-hopping of this unique beer. European rye is added for a smooth, malty addition to flavor. 1.065 OG 7%ABV

Sampled on tap at ale arsenal. A really awesome brew that really doesn’t feel like an ipa. It feels more like a wheat or strong ale. Highly carbonated but the hops are great and unique. An awesome sampling ale!

(bottle - 22 oz) Hazy orange pour with a thin off-white head. Funky citrus aroma. Not much pine. Flavor starts off with mild citrus and then a peppery and earthy hop note. Definitely no mistaking what hop is being used. Surprisingly clean finish without much bitterness. Thanks to Ryan for sharing this.

Week old bottle thanks to Diego! Pours a cloudy yellow good with medium frothy head. The aroma is a strong fruity hop and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel with strong sweet hop, light dryness and bitter finish. Realy fresh, so good.

A world class display of my favorite hop in the universe. Excellent stone fruit character, bits of citrus, lightly spicy.

blomster (229) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2014
Bottle. Light, hazy, hay coloured pour, white head. Smells great! Mango, passionfruit, pine needles. Medium bitterness. Passionfruit, citrus, pineapple, resin in taste. Little residual sugar, dry but at the same time quite big bodied. Long, smooth, tasty finish. How I would love to have some locals available that tastes like this.

A- Pours a light tangerine hue with a nice, 1.5 finger frothy white head that leaves decent lacing on the way down. S- Grassy, Citrus, tons of grapefruit, mixed with light sweet fruits. T- Bready and a tad spicy that leads into lots of citrus, blood orange, tangerine, grapefruit and has a nice bitter finish. M- Medium bodied with medium carbonation. D- A lot of these new top IPAs (Nelson, Sculpin, etc.) are very similar to pliny in the nose. This was wonderfully complex and balanced and one of the best IPAs i’ve ever tasted, bar none.
