UPDATED: JAN 11, 2020 Poured from can. Late Harvest version. Pours hazy golden with white head. Aroma is pineapple with citrus. Flavor is tropical fruit with crisp citrus. Some onion and dank hop finish. BreweryLiquids40 (7) - - NOV 2, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2019 Can. Pale and hazy. Thin head. Toasty aroma, with a big nelson aroma, and some melon. On the aroma, it has a nice nelson sauvin taste, sweet pale malt, the usual excellent malt character from this brewery. Good balance. Solid brew, with a nice bit of bitterness to lend balance.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2019 This isn't a new entry, It is the same as regular Hill Farmstead Nelson pale ale but just a different age on the hops. Brewing ingredients or percentage didn't change. Please fix RBDiarmaidBHK (7501) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2019

Tap at Blackback, pours hazy golden yellow with medium white head, tiny bubbles. Notes of bubblegum, cheese hops, cat piss, onion, papaya, grapefruit, zest, and lots of well water. Insanely drinkable and light on the palate. One of the better single hops I have had from HF. Cheers.
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2019 Can from brewery. Pours yellow and kind of hazy. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Lovely citrus and earthy notes on the nose and tongue. Finished with a hint of bitterness. Very crushable. fiulijn (26442) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2019
Tasting at Salesforce, can, simply called "Nelson"

Murky pale blond colour. Wow, that's a pungent Nelson aroma as I haven't had in a long time. Crisp mouthfeel, a bit chalky, but with excellent hop expression.
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2019 355ml can @ the office. Pours a cloudy pale yellow colour with a small white head. Nose is cat pee, grassy. and some dank notes. Flavour is nice and smooth, a touch of fruit, with mild grass and dankness. Light bodied, mild carbonation, and a moderate sweetness with a balanced bitterness. beerplace (5750) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2019

Can from the source. Murky pale yellow color white head with solid lacing. Floral white wine aroma. Taste is fruity white wine. One of the better expressions of this hop I've had. skrip (230) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2017
750ml growler poured in a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.
A~ glows like the sun. glowing yellow on the outsides which fads to a bright orange in the middle. nice white head and a lot of lacing.
S~ earthy pine, all kinds of citrus, and a little bit of that delicious vomit smell. in the best way possible of course haha.
T~ pretty much follows the nose and reminds me a lot of Enjoy By and Bitter Valentine. Nelson must play a huge roll in those brews. the citrus opens up even more here with lots of tropical guava, mango, and papaya.
M~ i should really just start giving the mouthfeel for all HF brews a 5 lol. well maybe except for BoT haha. anyway... amazing carbonation, smooth as can be and super refreshing.
O~ Nelson the boy who threw up the earth haha. i really enjoy that vomity, earthy pine in IPA’s. i now believe i know where that comes from but i could still be totally wrong lol. this is definitely one of my favorite hoppy HF brews (i might say that too much lol) but in my defense i don’t usually enjoy (by) single hop pales/IPA’s. this is surly amazing though, go for it!
