3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 330ml. Thanks to @igniztion
Pours amber with a big white to offwhite head. Really a magnificent foam compared to the other beers in IPA is dead. Good hoped head. Bitterness is the most dominating taste, maybe a little too bitter. But a very pleasant IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Backlog, vertical tasting of all 4 in the Beer Temple (tap), shortly after release. Golden to amber color, white head. Aroma’s: resinous, fruit (not so clearly lychee as for instance Mikkeller’s Nelson Sauvin Single Hop). Retronasal there’s sesame, roast, resin, fruits. Flavor is herbal, some acidity from the CO2, and moderate bitter. Medium bodied. Finishes with a firm bitterness (good burp).

The first time I tasted the Nelson Sauvin hop, it was the start of a love affair. This beer truly makes the brilliance of the Nelson Sauvin stand out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle sampled in 2011. Pretty clear, golden body with a nice, dense off-white head. Strong citric abd tropical fruit aroma with ripe mangos and pine. Flavor as expected from aroma, tropical/citric, ripe mangos and pine. Balanced good bitterness and a fine malt base with some caramel. Medium body and bitter aftertaste. Nice, the hop profile is more obvious here than other single hop Nelsons I have sampled.

Slight haze on this amber beer. Tidy white head. The nose is a bit too much cats piss! Crispy palate. Pretty intense Nelson Sauvin flavours! Skunk with grapefruit and a little lemon. Trace of blackcurrant and spice. Finishes semi dry. Not the best Nelson IPA I have had - this one accentuated the skunk and pee rather than the fruit flavours that the hop can impart.
