Draught at Bashamichi. Grass and citrus nose, nice, not the catpiss that comes when this hop is handled badly. More like a fruit sherbery, grapefruit and grass. Tasty beer with a nice sweetness and a bit hoppy flavor. Smooth and full. Good.

Potent and heady. Nothing like sav blanc. Massive notes of grapefruit and much more like a guertz or muscat grape. A misnomer on the same of the hop. This beer really highlights the hops more than anything I drank in NZ. There is considerable malt backbone, but never had I had a single hopped IPA where the hops performed so well.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2012 Tap. Soft, but fragrant Citrus/Pine/Grape on the nose. Full and quite bitter. A bit too heavy for my liking - compared to a beer such as Alpine Nelson. The Baird house yeast doesnít do this kind of beers any favours. Still itís enjoyable and NS is such a lovable, quirky hop, itís hard not to like this. A bit astringent on the finish.

Keg at Harajuku taproom. Orange coloured with small white bubbly head. Aroma is tropical fruit as expected, bit of grapefruit and bit of pine hops. Grainy too, and with some sweetness. Taste is bitter and fruity, again a little sweetness. Nice bitter finish. Touch of sour cream in there too. Decent NS beer.
