On tap at Burger in Aptos. Poured hazy golden with a medium off white head. Nose was a nice blend of citrus and floral, on the stronger side. Nicely blanced taste, alcohol was masked. Nice brew very enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ wildeman. Hazy golden pour, thick white head. Aroma is sweaty, creamy, floral hops with resin, buttery and quite heavy. Flavor is loads of Nelson, buttery, bitter resin hops. Quite thick body and lingering taste. A bit overpowered.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours hazy amber orange with a medium white head and nice lacing. Aroma is faint citrus and passionfruit; typical of the Nelson hop but pretty subdued. Flavor is about the same with little sweetness and light bitterness. Medium bodied and a bit watery. ABV so well masked that this actually seemed more like a watery single than a potent double.

Not much aroma, and what I could smell was slightly skunky. Nice hoppy taste, with a bitter finish.

Light aroma distinct to the hop from which out derives itís name. The taste is the same but with a slight fruitiness and okay sweet balance. The Nelson Sauvin hop has a distinct off flavor in the bitterness that I think works against it here.

On tap at the Nova, chose it as my shift beer. Got 2 pints by accident, really fucked me up. Taste like a double, gets the job done.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Whole Foods. Pours dark copper with soapy two finger white head. Grapefruit, tangerine, nuts, caramel. Extremely bitter and mild/moderate sweetness. As is often the case with these single hop beers, hop bitterness hits in the mid/back palate. Full, crisp body. Pretty good, but one glass was enough.

So, its on tap at the house of 1000 -$4.75. Big nasty lemon ipa rude mouth coating experience. You know, I donít care for IPA so bullshit. However, I must admit it is not as thich and rich as most double ipa. Flat. Long bitter linger as usa but this is just a clean straight ipa.

Tap. Golden with one finger head. Hops are interesting on this one. Hard to place, but very tasty. Lots of citrus. Great IPA. Not boozy at all.
