Draft at the brewery taproom - Temecula. I fear there was something slightly amiss with the glass of this beer I tried. It wasn’t bad but there were characteristics I would not have expected. Fairly sweet with dried cereal, there are also notes of green pepper and hay. Huh. Lots of odd green pepper notes. Still tasty but I can’t imagine this is as intended.

Bomber from trade. Thanks, GT2! Pours yellow golden with a lacy white head. Aroma of pineapple, tropical fruit, french bread. Has a very dry, pale malt backbone and some grapefruit hop. Slightly mineral at the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle. It pours a very nice clear light gold color with a good white head. The aroma has some grapefruit, pine and light notes of white grape. The flavor is dry and crisp without much malt flavor. Mostly pine, grapefruit seed and subtle notes of white grape. Very dry and bitter finish. This was nice. They managed to keep the Nelson character under control, yet still potent and interesting. Well done.

On tap. Light golden pour with a white head. Pine and hop bitterness in the aroma with clean underlying malt. Taste is moderate bitterness with pine an minimal sweet malt. Lightly coating mouthfeel. Slightly rough but very nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bomber shared by Ed5388, while drinking this one Ed asked me if I could shave his legs.....I said no. Poured an orange body with lots of clinging carbonation and a small white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, dry, some citrus fruits, grains, a touch of dankenss and a hint of rye for some reason. Medium to slightly thinner bodied and average carbonation. Flavor is dank, citrus rind, lemons, wet grass and rinds. I liked this one, I did not like Ed asking me to groom him.

22oz bomber thank to the great and generous GT2!! Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a finger of foamy white head. Amazing aroma of mainly tropical fruit, some citrus, and bread. Taste mimics the nose. Citrus and tropical fruit, white bread, grapefruit, and pine.

This poured a straw yellow with a white head. Aroma was pretty much all tropical fruit, and light grain
Flavor was very smooth, fruity and grassy hops. Pretty solid.

650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a pale gold color with a medium white head that has fair retention. The aroma is spicy grains, hay, bit o citrus and floral. The taste is some sweet canned corn hopped up with tropical melons, lemons and grapefruit. The palate is full and just a tad gritty and the carbonation is lively. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Very interesting.

Draft at the brewery. Pale yellow pour, with a sticky white head. Tropical fruit, grass, light crackery malt, tons of nelson hops creating very interesting fruity flavors, mango, pineapple, and herbs. Very dry, and drinkable. Tasty, my favorite of the day.
