3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice balance of hops and malts, toasted bready malts, decent bitterness for a pale, light fruit, herbal, earthy, put it in a can and I would drink it again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Dutch’s. Clear golden orange color. Nice thin off-white head. Leaves decent short rows and bits of lace. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Kind of slick. Awesome interesting hop aroma... Seeing the gooseberry that people talk about, some tropical citrus, light peppery hop. Some caramel malt, bready malt. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Very aromatic pale ale, great feature for the nelson sauvin. Easy to sip repeatedly, even when it’s on the warmer side.

Thus poured a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma was fresh Nelson hops, really no malt showing through, flavor was similar, subdued, perfumery and a bit dirty. Eh.

16 oz. can from Oskar Blues in Brevard, NC. Pours an orange-amber into the glass with a thick soapy head that leaves chunky lacing. Grainy hop nose (gotta love Nelson Sauvin hops!). Citrus and pale malts in the mouth, some grains and grassiness, finishing with a grassy bitter. Complex and substantive, this is smooth and refreshingly light on the palate. A great quaff, and a really nice collaboration here!

On draft at tap room. Deep yellow pour with bright, floral citrus nose. Very drinkable and smooth. So good I took a growler home. Can this stuff!

Sampled at Sierra Nevada Beer Camp at Mills River. They said the abv is 5.2%, not 6.5. Anyway, nice mix of citrus hops and toasty malt. Taste is a bit malty, with some earthy flavors. Finishes with a grssy, citrusy hop bite. Nice...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Brevard tasting room. Pours a clear golden orange with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of resinous new world hops, citrus with garlic zestiness. Taste follows with a hint of biscuit and light caramel malt. Nice and clean, good carbonation, easy to drink, good stuff.
