Growler from the brewery - big thanks to Dr. Sandman. Pours rich gold with a frothy white head. Big, dank nose with lots of melon and ripe orange. Medium sweet flavor with light pine, more melon and orange, some grapefruit. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Dank hop finish, lightly warming, with some resins, a bit of citrus rind bitterness, melon and papaya. Grassy bitter aftertaste. Really solid.

Growler straight from the source. Gorgeous bright orange pour, fluffy head. Nose and flavor are stunning, with gigantic papaya, white pear, apricot, clean bitterness that isn’t overly ascerbic, nice complementary grain character that is lean but provides a touch of spicy backbone. Quaffable and delicious.

On tap @ brewery. Pours a clear yellow with med white head heavy lace. Aroma is kick ass, big guava, cantaloupe, gooey citrus hop, wheat, faint rye. Flavor is gooey guava hop juice, turns light bitter but finishes so smooth. Fait light for the ABV, but medium mouthfeel and carbo. Very nice, fresh batch.

Cask at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of stinky sweaty armpit hops, rye, citrus. Flavor is more citrusy, fruity, with plenty of hop oils, grassy hops, garlicky hops and stinky hops in the finish. Excellent rye IPA, light on the rye though.

ticked at the source, not a grape for everyone, i like the grapeyness than comes from it. Good example of the potential of the nelson sauvin.
