COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: All Blacks NZPA er en New Zealand Pale Ale, som er baseret på de New Zealandske humler Pacific Gem og Nelson Sauvin. Pacific Gem er brugt grundet sin høj alpha syre, som bidrager med sin bløde bitterhed til øllet, og den efterhånden velkendte Nelson Sauvin er brugt grundet sine fantastiske aromatiske og smagsfulde karakterer.
Nelson Sauvin er brugt meget gavmildt i den senere del af humlingen for at give masser af smag og duft af denne fabelagtige humle. For at gøre øllet endnu mere indbydende har jeg tørhumlet den meget aggressivt hvilket efterlader en øl som går lige i næsen, smager meget af NZ humle, men uden at have for megen reel bitterhed.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2011
Draught at København Ølfestival 2010
Hazy amber color; creamy head. Very nice hops aroma: the fruits from the Nelson Sauvin, but also a sharp earthy touch, light manure, very light apricot jam (this is a different hop). The mouthfeel is dry, yet quite smooth (high carbonation too), dry toffee flavor, with strong bitterness: mix of mild resins, earthy touch extreme bitterness, extreme dryness, with astringent final. Not only it’s very good, but it would also go very well with food.

omhper (19797) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2010
Draught at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Hazy pale amber, creamy head. Sweaty grapefruity nose. Richly hoppy with plenty of black currant. Clean, rounded mouthfeel. Massively hoppy in a beatiful way - grapefruit and black currant sorbet. Really marked bitterness. Hop juice deluxe!

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - APR 27, 2011
Tap at Mikkellerbar. With Nelson being one of my favorite hops so far, this one obviously fell into my liking. Hazy yellow/orange with a thick white head. Full nelson aroma of grape fruit and sweet mandarine. Soft and bitter flavor again with the lovely hop notes comming thtough in the moutharoma. When its fresh its amazing.

Theis (13755) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2010 Draught at Ørsted Ølbar (1st time) & ØLbaren (2nd time). Clear amber - white head. 1st time: Lots of Nelson Sauvin hop aroma, lots of petroleum + benzin + fruitiness, caramel, toasted, grassy, piney, peach, citric, pineapples, light citrus, medium malty. Nice but a bit over the top on the Nelson Sauvin hops... not my favorit...... 2nd time: The Nelson Sauvin hops has mellowed a bit, now its a lot more pleasant, still very fruity. Nice drinkability. (The score is from 2nd time I tasted it).

thewolf (11207) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2010
Tap @ Nørrebro Bryghus & @ Lord Nelson, Cph.
Pours lightly hazy brownish amber with a lovely, creamy white head. Wonderful lacings. Aroma has lovely resiny hops, plant sap, fruity, light oily, apricot, grapefruit and red apple. Medium carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Light caramel malty start to the flavours. Then lots of hops. Lowish bitterness, but high dryness. Plant sap, apricot, piney. Very drinkable. The bitterness gets more pronounced as it heats up.

abemorsten (2883) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2010
Hazy deep golden with a large tanned head leaving excellent lacing. Inviting hoppy aroma, goose berries and plums, hinting at sweat. Well balanced bitter and sweet flavors and aromatic as it is being swallowed. Sampler@Ølfestival København 2010. One of the remarkable ones!

Bontus (638) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2011
Tap @ ACBF 2011. Pours darker than other IPA’s, incredible aroma of spicy hops and grapes. Bit more herbal than citrussy. Full bodied for this ABV. Very well balanced.

Plovmand (6559) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2010
Draught at Lord Nelson. Amber body with a steady fluffy white head. Typical Nelson Sauvin hop aroma with notes of peach, passion fruit, light burned rubber and citrus. The flavour is caramel, fruit, peach, pineapple and passion fruit. The texture is very soft and smooth and makes you wanna drink this beer forever. Lovely!
