Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Pros: Excellent look. Naturally carbonated. Nose has some serious hop power with the Nelson Sauvin showing its mandarin orange and tangerine character. It takes on more of a peach character on the palate. Not a very floral or piney hop to me, but quite fruity. Nice expression of the hop. Fun to taste.

Cons: While it is unquestionably well brewed, I don’t like the hop, at least as the sole element in the beer. The fruitiness of the hop became overbearing for my palate, but it’s cool to know that hops can get this fruity.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2016 Beer with strong hop scent and taste, very pleasant sweet smell that comes right after that great hopy scent.

Acid303 (611) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - DEC 8, 2015
33cl bottle, served in tulip. Pours amber with medium off-white frothy head. Aroma is citrus, a lot of caramel and fruits. Same taste, nothing remarkable. Quite cloying sweet on the aftertaste with minimum bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation is ok. Maybe there was a problem with this bottle...I certainly didn’t like it.

Nelson Sauvin hops are very present in this single hop brew. The nice hopping is almost like wine and very fruity.

Kosmokrator (760) - ITALY - NOV 26, 2015
Alla spina. IPA "classica" che esalta le note tipiche del luppolo neozelandese (frutta matura/cotta in primis). Profumata, fresca, dissetante e di corpo medio.

TorbenJensen (1408) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2015
Rough and persistent foam. Floral hops is curiously only aroma. The flavor is hoppy, but with distinct floral notes and slightly sweet flavor that is a little reminiscent of honey, back of the throat. Now I am no great scientist for hops, but I can also taste this type of hop is different than, say, British, American, German and Czech hops. Hop bitterness is like more withdrawn and moderate and releases space for aforementioned floral notes, sweetness and body.

From tap. Light hazy golden orange color with off white head. Hoppy and malty aroma, light pine, citrusy fruity, floral, caramel. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.
