Nelson Sauvin Smelles so good, so verry good. My favorite hops. Foam is big like Titanic. Great taste from NZ. Piana naprawde niesamowita i robi wrazenie piorunujace. metnosc totalnie wielka, wysycenie duze. Kolor pomaranczowy. Piwo pachnace przecudownie jak laka pelna kwiatow. Chyba najlepsze piwo z NZ jakie testowalem. Moj ulubiony chmiel w tym piwie wraz z amerykanskim Cascade zdominowaly to Pale Ale totalnie. Testowane piwo w temperaturze pokojowej jak zaleca sam pan Josh Scott

On tap. Pours a light-medium gold with a white head and lacing. It has a strong tropical fruit hop aroma, with some citrus as well. The flavor is the same hop profile with a sold malt backbone and a not-too-bitter finish over a medium body.

Bottle. Amber pour with a tall, dense, bubbly white head. Aroma is hoppy but sort of muted. Floral hops, earthy hops, tea leaves and light caramel in the nose. Taste is floral and fruity with soft malt notes, light caramel, earthy hops, tea leaves and light toffee. Body is medium with a soft, creamy carbonation. Moderate lingering hop bitterness to this. Finishes with more hop bitterness. Floral and earthy hops up front followed by citrus notes, tea leaves, caramel, light toffee and malt.

Had this at Hubert Keller’s burger bar. Bartender wouldn’t let me taste it because it was "so special". I caved amd ordered one. Not awesome, but something was special about it. Not worth the high price though.

750ml green bottle, corked. Deep gold pour, hazy. Very effervescent looking pour. Big rocky white cap that is long lasting. patchy lacing int he glass. Aroma has NZ tropical fruit hops and orange peel. Taste has a plain dryish malt base, notes of citrus hop and tropical fruits. Medium length finish with grass and orange peel in the aftertaste. Light body, very effervescent. Overall a nice looking beer in the glass with some tasty Sauvin hop notes.

Draught at Pumphouse, Richmond, BC
Muddy light amber color with compact head. Fresh aroma of malt and hops. Smooth mouthfeel, with good body structure; malt flavor, some caramel, light cereals; strong bitterness with strong orangey resins, and traces of yeast. Long final.
Bold, feels stronger than it is supposed to be.
