Guest tap @ Green Flash. Hazy yellow, lasting lacy white head. Big green hop character, some gooseberry and cat pee, restrained malt sweetness, extremely bitter finish. Fantastic.

651 ml. bottle. BBD 24 May 16. Pours a medium, well retained, off white head, with slight lacing over a hazy yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is pine, resin, citrus peel from the hops, hints of toasted malts, balance to the hops.....taste is mildly floral honey sweet, with light pine, hints of resin, mild citrus, slight allium, rye, becoming moderately bitter, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium slightly sticky body, minimal alcohol, moderate carbonation. Even though it was brewed with a "down under" hop, this is very "left coast in style. The aromas and flavors of the hops are quite excellent, with just enough malt character, with the rye addition to almost balance the hops. BJCP 9/3/16/4/7

tmoreau (3271) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2016
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. and 12 oz. dispensed to a Czech-pils glass, displaying a hazed, light gold color, with a frothy layer of white head foam that slowly diminished, leaving a sheet-like coating of lacing on the glass. The nose was expressively dank and citrusy, with notes of lemon & grapefruit, a bit of cattiness, and light grass & greenery. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste added a lingering citrus & rind-like bitterness, along with some tartness. Rye influence was negligible, but found this single hopped IPA to be quite tasty. Recall past familiarity with this hop used in combination with others, but first time as the star. Gives the style a fresh variation.

SpringsLicker (3322) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 12, 2016
Hazy lemon yellow pour ith a big frothy white head. looks like a witbier. Hop aroma that has light pine and some lemony citrus. The flavor has light bitterness on the front and some malt sweetness coming in to join the bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable, well balanced IPA.

Shag (2738) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Golden color with a white head. Aroma contains tons of pine, orange, lemons. The flavor is bitter and full of resin. Odd for a non IIPA. Some malt to balance it out. This is top notch stuff.

My first Nelson. Very good and very refreshing. Pours a cloudy gold with an aroma that is predominantly fruity hops. Soft and malty body with some grassy and fruity hops throughout. No typical rye spice and no Bitterness. Very well put together.
