COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Some tools are a showpiece. The utility is there, but the flare carries weight. The hawkbill’s unique blade is the perfect icon of this light and slightly tart expression of the Nelson Sauvin hop. This session ale is made with a pils base and flaked oats, wheat, and barley, along with a touch of New Zealand Rakau, a hefty dose of Nelson Sauvin, and a special house yeast. The result is a subtle sweetness of lemon and lime, welcomed by musty white grape and papaya.

Can from Bruisin’ Ales. Pours translucent gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is mostly white grape. Med + body. Flavor is grape and musty fruit with some sort of tropical. It is very dry, very hoppy and bitter. Strong flavors in a pleasing combo. Recommended.

The_Osprey (9343) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2017
August 2017 - Tasting at Leighton's. Huge thanks! Can, as 'Burial Hawkbill'. Vibrant golden yellow, nearly opaque, foamy greyish head. Aroma is boozy, limoncello, lemon zest and grapefruit. Body is frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is sodwater, little salty, mint and pine notes, smooth finish. Nice. (7-4-7-3-15=3.6)

onceblind (10690) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2017
Slightly hazy bright golden with a thin sticky rocky white head. Bright resinous hop aroma with notes of pine and citrus peel and light dankness. Crisp bright hoppy flavor that’s resinous and slightly citric, and ever so slightly tropical, and lingering bitterness throughout. Delightful dry and clear pale malt body that lets he complex hops shine.

oobawa (1792) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 17, 2017
Pretty good IPA, a notable showcase for the Nelson Sauvin, offering up distinct fruity undertones with a white grape juice sweetness. Pils base leaves the malts somewhat bland and nondescript, yet a honey note backs up the more citric hop layers, leading to a modest pine-needle finish. A bit light on the back end, lacking much bitterness and leaning more pilsner-ish than wanted, save for the noticeable hit of rye bread. Peach, grape, and pils malt on the nose, and the pour comes out a slightly hazed yellow-gold with a moderate white head and mild lacing. Good feel, smooth and light. Drinkable, but a bit bland.
