COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nelson Sauvin, a hop varietal grown out of New Zealand, is the featured hop in this single-hop Double IPA. Our second release in our Double IPA series that showcases our favorite hop varieties, one by one, with each consecutive release. This hop is a mind bender with flavors of Sauvignon Blanc, gooseberries, truffle and allspice.

Bomber purchased at Bine & Vine ($9.49). My first rating for this OC brewery. Oops, I missed the "drink by" date by a few weeks, but hopefully this is still fresh. Pours a hazy peach hue with two full fingers of off-white foam. Nice AROMA of sweet tropical fruit, moscato, tangerine, cantaloupe, sweet honey and caramel malts, and a hint of dank hops. FLAVOR of earthy hops, grapefruit and sweeter citrus, caramel malts, some overripe tropical fruit, some dankness, and a hint of onion. The flavor was a little disappointing after the exceptional nose, but still very drinkable. Finishes with some tropical sweetness. Well balanced with the malt profile. The 8.8% is fairly well concealed. Great DIPA...will have to look for more in their Showers series. (27, 945)

Bomber from Best Damn Beer Shoppe. Pours translucent gold with a slight white head. Lots of mixed hop aroma. Citrus, floral, tropical, spice. Med body or better. Flavor matches aroma, but it also cries out dank. Finishing hop is tropical. Oh, and there’s some caramel holding up all the hop. Nice drink.

Dr_Fellini (828) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a cloudy deep golden color with a nice off white head. Aroma is huge tropical, fleshy fruit hops, white wine grapes, caramel candy sweetness. Flavor also packs a big fleshy fruit hop sweetness with tropical fruit notes. Light to medium in body with a wonderful fruity finish. Phenomenal IPA!

Barreras (1257) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Noble Ale Works Nelson Showers pours a glowing orange color with a strong spiced hop aroma. Taste is full flavored hops, a twang of tangerine mixed with a decent amount of hops. The hops linger on the palate and seem to lightly aerate and dissipate.

Theydon_Bois (12687) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Keg whilst browsing Bottlecraft, 12/11/14. Hazed light golden with a decent off white covering to swirl. Nose is nicely skunked up hops, dank notes, grapefruit, earthy, citric peel, piss. Taste comprises bitter grapefruit, pine, nice skunk, pissy, straw, citric peel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid Skunky DIPA awash with Nelson, a pleasure to drink,

Bottle. Keep on lovin’ the Showers series! Pours hazy golden, medium creamy white head, dissipates fairly slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is super dank, cat piss, onion and garlic, some tropical notes. Flavor is light sweet and light plus bitter, dank, onions, herbal, dank leaves, some passionfruit. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel

Fresh Bomber to tulip. That is some danky shit for sure. Lots of tropical and citrus notes. Opaque pour with frothy white head. Not on par with Alpine Nelson but good for sure.
