Towey1989 (2222) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Can at The Leeky Tap, Leek. A hazy amber colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, pine, resin, some mango, slight orange, a little fruit and subtle floral hops. Taste of orange, resin, some grapefruit, slight mango, toasted malts, a little caramel and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, slight toasted, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. Citrus, resinous and floral hops coming through the American grain bill of toasted malts and caramel, however the Nelson quality isnt there. Short finish too. More like a standard pale ale.

mcberko (16012) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2017
On tap at Mother Earth, pours a clear bright golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out a very fresh citrus and dry piney hop character, along with toasted crackery malt. Flavour is wonderfully structured, with the Nelson hops coming out wonderfully, with its characteristic citrus tangy quality, followed by some piney hops and toasted crackery malt. Bold without being abrasive in any way and leaving very low astringency on the finish. Excellent.

Clear amber color with a tiny head. Hops, dryness, mild bitterness and dryish malt in the aroma. No fresh. The flavor is harsh hops, bitterness and sweetish malt.

Antzrhere (140) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2016
Pours orange, relatively clear. Aroma of malt and sweet pine. Taste is very sweet for an IPA. Resin, hops and light citrus, almost tangerine flavours. Not the hopiest IPA beer ive had but flavour is quite full and rounded. Maybe a little too sweet for most hop heads but easy to drink and hides ABV well

BlackHaddock (6764) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2016
23rd Sep 2016: 330ml can in Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Hazy orange with a weak and thin head. Hop centric and fairly bitter in nature with a fruity trace in the bitterness as it warmed a little in the glass. I thought this OK, hid the alcohol well.

OK, I understand the comments about this being unremarkable, in the world of IPAs. But, lets face it, there are millions of them, and they cant all be exceptional. It has a good colour and oodles of lacing, a decent body and good balance of fruity hops and malt. And pine, and caramel, and a kick of bitterness. Its good!
