3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pour is hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is orange zest, light resinous hops, light sweet malt, and light black pepper. Flavor is citrusy and floral with a slightly astringent component. Slightly sweet malt with lingering orange in the finish. A strange beer with a different flavor with each sip - always floral and always a little astringent.

Shared bomber to snifters. This is so unappealing and offensive to my senses of smell and taste. Nelson Sauvin is apparently not my thing at all.

Smells and tastes a little off. Can’t get past it rancid. What is that flavor? Who cares, bye! The bottle calls it dankness and grapefruit. Yup, about right. Bye!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lightly clouded, orange golden with an ample white head. Huge tropical fruit, spicy citrus nose. Slight pine resin aromas. Moderate bitterness, some lingering sweetness. Lively carbonation and acidity, medium-to-lighter body, moderately long finish. Excellent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours hazy and deeply amber with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. The aroma features a medley of citrus and tropical fruits and as with all overly dry-hopped beers, there’s definitely some musky armpit here. Medium-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor is a mingling of bitter citrus and tropical fruit rinds and piths. Some melon here as well. Finishes crisp, moderately bitter and a bit coarse. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle pours a hazy yellow amber color with a bit of head. Piney hop flavor. The hop profile is very pronounced without any harshness. Delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
La signature du Nelson avec toutes ses particularités infusés dans un corps mâchable de malts biscuités et miellés. Bonne amertume d’agrumes pâles, buvabilité entrainante.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber pours a hazy copper/orange with a large khaki head. Aroma of fresh bright citrus and oranges. Really nice taste of mandarin orange like the description, slightly tropical mango, with a mild caramel malt, and some bitterness and melon on the finish. Very tasty!!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Strong citrus notes in aroma and taste. The bottle I got was a little hazier than I expect for an IPA, so it lost points for appearance. Bitterness lasts into finish, but is not overwhelming. Nicely balanced beer.
