COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Toronado Pub in San Francisco is celebrating their 25th Anniversary this weekend and we brewed a special beer just for the blessed event. The pub with the notoriously rude bartenders set the bar for craft forward beer bars for two and a half decades, and they like us. So, to show we love them too, we brewed what could be considered “Double Nelson” and it’s called “Toronado 25th Anniversary Ale.” The beer came in at 8.88% abv and is clear, clean and shockingly floral. The Nelson Sauvin hops shine and the alcohol is so unnoticeable that it too could be considered dangerously delicious.

Draft multiple times. Danky ass nose of cat piss and citrus. Even dankier taste with some rye notes. Hop forward as crazy with not much malt back bone. For what it is, it is phenomenal.

8oz pour at Toronado. Cloudy pale gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is really good, super dank, orange creamsicle, light onion, very juicy. Taste is quite bitter, in your face juicy, pungent hops, lingering resinous flavor. Palate is med-full bodied with med carbonation, light booziness. Very solid IIPA.

growler, this is a phenomenal IPA. Huge everything with the hops dominating malts as it should. big big citrus aroma and favor, moderate sweetness that is not really sweet at all because of the flavor and aroma hops, Finish is all flavor, no harsh bitterness.

64 oz. growler poured into a snifter. Originally reviewed 6/1/2015. Clear golden body. Nice white head. Some lacing and decent retention. Strong Nelson hop aroma. Orange and a hint of herbal character. Sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit, orange, a little tropical. That standard Nelson flavor. Pretty sweet. Mild bitterness, if any. Medium carbonation. Maybe medium low. Medium heavy body. I’d probably take regular Nelson over this, but it’s really good.
