3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pros: Excellent look. Naturally carbonated. Nose has some serious hop power with the Nelson Sauvin showing its mandarin orange and tangerine character. It takes on more of a peach character on the palate. Not a very floral or piney hop to me, but quite fruity. Nice expression of the hop. Fun to taste.
Cons: While it is unquestionably well brewed, I don’t like the hop, at least as the sole element in the beer. The fruitiness of the hop became overbearing for my palate, but it’s cool to know that hops can get this fruity.
Can (from SIP). Pours amber with whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is hoppy, floral, fruity, grassy. Flavor is sweet and bitter, caramel, malt, grass, fruits, herbal notes. Finish is dry and herbal bitter. Overall: good. minutemat (5814) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2017
330ml can @ Chez Sophie. Pours a clear amber, medium foamy white head. Aroma floral, herbal, lightly citrussy, distant berry fruit. Taste has a similar character with a hefty malt body, distant resin, caramel and a robust bitterness. Not the best malt bill for a showcase of this hop it has to be said. Bit odd really. Not unpleasant, just not what you expect from a single hop IPA. adamnase (810) - Kronoby, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2017
33cl can from boxbeers.dk. Pours amber coloured with a thick mediumsized white head. Aroma has herbs, pine, wood and fruits. Flavor has pine, wood, grapefruit, strawberries. Bitter and dry finish. Refreshing. medium-bodied. LIKE IT! klm1 (1738) - Bled/SF, - AUG 18, 2017
Pours golden color, slightly hazy with foamy lasting white head. Aroma: intense hop profile with citrusy, fruity (peaches, apricot, some tropical fruits) character. Flavor follows aroma: intense hop profile with notes mentioned above and biscuity, gentle toffee like malt character - bubblegum like esters!? Hop bitterness is high, finish dry, long lasting bitter. Body is medium, texture soft, carbonation is medium. Nothing special but for now for sure the best one from this single hop ipa series. GeorgesF (51) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2017 Nice bitterness and aroma. A good beer overall, within th style. However I think the yeast used is not the ideal for this kind of beer, too much yeast aroma and belgiany.

Beautiful peach orange camel colour. Grains notes mixed with floreal and herbal notes. Quite balanced, a bit of hops harsness but nothing strong marcotetta (123) - - AUG 15, 2017
Drinked in a three weeks old can. Caramel notes, caco, date palm. In mouth is medium light bodied, very balanced. ALIBALI (2316) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2017
Kräftiger "Green Stachelbeer MK IPA" Styler!! Nellllson...gekonnt in Szene gesetzt, könnte man sagen. ChampagnePrickler too ✨🚀 . 0,33l CAN vom MIKKELLER BOTTLE SHOP in Kopenhagen. 45 DKK !? 77ships (10683) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2017
Draft sampled @ Gollem. Darker amber. overly big on sweet grape, hay, too yeasty, stale wheat, grea, weird plastic,... Body is the same. Not at all what I expected from a Nelson Sauvin IPA, disappointing honestly. Marko (5891) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 28, 2017
On tap at Craft Room. Slightly hazy dark amber, white head. Sticky malty grape aroma. Hm. Smooth malty, vague sweet white grape (sultanas really) note before rough herbal bitterness wipes everything away, slightly too sticky again. Eh.
