Ipa with New Zealand Nelson hops.
This zeelicious single hop IPA showcases the rare Nelson Sauvin hop from New Zealand. Delightfully confusing aromas of citrus and mandarin oranges give way to an incredibly complex body of earth tones and marigolds. This is truly like any hop you’ve ever tasted.

Tap at Dexters pre party. Clear medium amber. Lots of berry Nelson hops in the nose and flavor, light biscuit malt presence in the flavor. Dry finish, bitterness at a 5. Mod carbonation with a light to med body. Very tasty. Will add more at the great taste.

dinkle50 (1155) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Cloudy orange pour with a single finger head. Aroma is very dank. Passion fruit comes to mind in describing the aroma. Medium mouth. Taste is full of grapefruit and passion fruit. Bitter finish, but not overly done. Nice sweet components really balance out that bitterness. Lace present. Another great beer from TGB.

Cloudy copper/straw pour. Small off-white head. Nose is herbal hop and mango. Medium/light body. Catty, resinous/ herbal/ earthy hops. Slightly pungent and very spicy. Another hop showcase from TGB. The malt bill all but disappears. Unique.

Bottle via and shared with oakbluff. Very hazy old in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of exotic citrus, melon, white wine, and cut grass. Very hoppy in the mouth as well with more strong citrus, gooseberry, and wild grass. Medium bodied with sharp bitterness. Tasty stuff.

PartyFowle (670) - - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy cranberry-orange with a finger of white fluff. Nice aroma, leading with bold orange peel before notes of melon, earth, sunflower and saltine crackers roll in. The flavor carries aged citrus up front, but this disappears immediately at the swallow and is replaced with soft honeydew and white grape. Finishes very gently, with mild lingering bitterness.

ajnepple (3602) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2015
22 oz bomber into a pint glass, received via trade, thanks Chad! Hazy pale orange appearance with sticky and lasting beige head. Aroma of hop spice, earth, citrus fruits, gooseberries and light grass. Similar flavor, adding floral notes, light spruce and toasted grains. Medium to heavy spicy bitterness with a medium body and a light dry finish. Juicy, refreshing and easy to drink. Nice IPA overall.

Very good ipa. Tasty drinkable. Citrus 80 ibu yet only a bit palate erasing. Like an experimental hop.
