Tap at Wiz. Yummy. But exactly as expected. Initial tropical fruit burst, mango, pineapple, then nice bitterness. Pretty damn tasty. Recent Nelson beers I’ve had have been a bit disappointing, but this reminds me why I like it. Very easy drinking in spite of the %. Perfect balance between hoppy bitterness and sweet fruitiness. Like it a lot.

Small shaker showing bright yellow. The nose shows a lot of clean tropical fruit. The palate is medium bodied and well carbonated. A lot of clean pine resin forwardness on the palate and once more on the finish. Barely any perceivable bitterness imo.

Tap at Downtown Crown Wine and Beer. This is probably the first time this beer was poured in Montgomery County Maryland. I hope the trend continues. Beer poured a hazy yellow, with aromas of dank piney and citrusy hops. Palate was dry and full bodied. Flavor followed through from the aroma. Totally in balance, totally amazing.

Cybercat (4166) - Georgia, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Sauvin cask version. Pours hazy apricot with a nice eggshell head. Aroma has strong note of dusty hops with fruity and malt hints. Hoppy flavor is quite evergreen and bitter, while malty and citrus tones provide support. Mouthfeel has firm body and good fizz, leaving a nice hoppy finish. Don’t go for a half Nelson, get a full one!

Draught @ Taproom 307. Hazy bright yellow with small foamy white head, piney hops aroma, low carbonation, slightly sweet, very well balanced hoppy taste with a hint of pineapple, full body, long finish. Very very good indeed!

AWISLguy (1881) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2015
On tap at Happy Gnome. Excited to have finally. Old gold hazy yellow pour. No head. Aroma has citrus, pine and garlic. Thick and overlayered. Taste is massively dry hopped and layered. Garlic, citrus, pine. Medium bodied. Finishes thick, bitter and long. Reminds of the older Green Flash IPAs, with the overwhelming dry hopping and very long lingering bitterness. 14.4
