On draft ar brewpub, poured a cloudy orange color with aromas of light gras, citrus, earth, and a touch of malt. Flavors follow suit citrusy, grass, and some light bitterness. Nice beer overall. deyholla (12590) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2012
On tap at the Westside location. Pours a hazy gold with an orange hue and a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of sweet citrus with only a hint of bitterness and a light grain backbone. Flavor has a decent amount of sweet grain with an earthy citrus note. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 27, 2010

Golden pour. Aroma of hops. I love dry hopped beers. This is one of them. Herbal earthy hoppiness. Nice grain flavor. Pale malts. Smooth hop bitterness. Nelson Sauv is such a great hop. This is a great beer. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 8, 2010

on tap-pours a white head that laces and hazy gold color. Aroma is grapefruit, some light/medium malt. Taste is grapefruit hops with some bite, some sweet light malt. Very dry finish. Elwood (3347) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Serving: Draft at the brewpub.
It pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a small, foamy, white head. The nose is sweet and citric, loaded with hops. Grapefruit and berry notes are dominant. The taste is malt forward at first then a bold, astringent bitterness. The grapefruit aspect really comes through on the palate. Medium body with a lengthy, bitter finish. I would be content to sit back and drink a few of these. doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Had this one at the brewpub a few weeks back on business in ATL. Pours cloudy amber with a bug white head that laces the glass. Smells slightly musty and earthy hoppy with slight citrus and a hint of dishwater. Pretty good. Tastes hoppy and clean with citrus. Lightly pungent. Good overall. Medium body, good carbonation.

Appearance: Deliver to my corner of the bar a head, burnished orange body with a dense, frothy head with a slight yellow tinge to it.
Smell: Bright hop aroma imparts inviting notes of white grapes, zippy spices, and fresh flower petals. In back are the mild, lightly toasty notes of pale malts.
Taste: Pale malts accompanied by tastes of both French bread and crumpled biscuits serves as a light platform to launch us into the Nelson Sauvin hop character. The hops are zesty, floral, spicy and impart hints of white grape and lychee. Also, the slackened malts provide a nicely bold bitterness to come through. The beer is quite dry on the back half and finish with some of that bitterness enduring into the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Just speaks into medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A pleasant ale utilizing a strikingly unique hop. As dear glid would say, it’s worth a shot! shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 22, 2010
