This beer is excellence in a glass. I refuse to rate all the beers brewed here, and indeed some of the tastiest brews iíve ever been privy to have come from Mr. Nash himself, but mostly because i feel these beers are meant to be enjoyed, celebrated even, for what they are. These beers are a one shot, love it till itís gone and have a second while your at it, celebration of the effect hop flowers can have on the human soul. I wonder sometimes, they say we have THC receptors, well, these beers make me wonder if we have Humulus lupus alpha/beta acid receptors.
I donít care what the price is of this beer. This beer is a celebration of what hops can have on the taste buds. This beer makes me belch hops, keeps me asking dreaming about it during my lunch hour at work and makes me cry when iím not beside it.
love it. There are no malts in the aroma of this brew, she is citrus, resinous, hoppy and finishes bitter. love it.

On Tap at the Hart & Thistle (of course). Bright, cloudy orange pour with an orange/tan head. Huge notes of grapefruit and tangerine with a definite resinous quality. No discernible malt as far as I could tell. A sheer assault on the taste buds opening with that grapefruit and tangerine but sliding out into a LONG resinous pine cone bitter finish. I think it could use a little more hopping, personally.
