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.

Bottle as an amazing trade extra. Pours hazy yellow golden with a big fluffy creamy white head. Incredible aroma of pineapple, mango, pine, and hay. Just perfect aroma. Flavor follows with big juicy pineapple and tropical fruits, medium bitter, juicy. Wow. Medium light bodied and incredible flavor for 5.5%. These guys just need to replace every other brewery on the planet so I can drink it all the time. This hit the spot.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2014 22oz bottle. Hazy golden orange unfiltered body. Fluffy white head. Citrus, guava, mandarin, delicate tropical rind. Probably the most awesome Nelson Sauvin experience you can have. Delicate and juicy. World Class, phenomenal beer.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 Poured from a growler that was opened hours earlier. Straw colored, no head. Aroma dominated by pink grapefruit, absolutely amazing. Flavor again is dominated by citrus hop notes. Medium body but nearly completely flat. The aroma and flavor of this beer is amazing, I wish I could have it fresh. (9,4,9,3,17) Rerating from the bottle. Carbonation bumps the body to a 4 and overall to 18.

Bottle: The aroma consists of dank hops, tropical fruits, and light grapefruit. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin ring. There’s some thing webbing left on sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of tropical fruits with a hint of pineapple. The finish has moderate citrus hops, grapefruit, and a hint of lemon. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, this is insanely sessionable. I could drink this all day.

Aroma is dank, on the piny and earthy side, some citrus. Appearance is golden, opaque, white head, great lace. Taste is dank, quite tart, some pine, floral and citrus. Mouthfeel is nice, good carbonation without being too crisp, flavor hangs. Overall, it smells better than it tastes but it’s still very good.
