Bottle at home. Ive had IPA’s made with Nelson Sauvin Hops before and every time I’ve had I’ve not enjoyed them so was a little concerned that I won’t like it, however didn’t need to be so good! It slides down well tastes also great. Still not my favourite hop but lovely beer. madmitch76 (25321) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011

Slightly hazy gold - amber beer. Tidy but short lived white head. Light palate which semi dry and semi crisp. Nice Nelson nose! Tiny bit of creamy malt. As always with Nelson Sauvin (to me at least) it never quite imparts the same flavours twice! Here it is orange, grapefruit and gooseberry. A little cats piss underneath. Smooth finish and a bitter aftertaste. Great IPA as usual from the Kernel. Original rating 3.8

Meet the brewer night at CP&K. On tap. Hazy amber beer, tiny white head. Fresh clean beer. Light crisp palate. Light gooseberry and grape and other good stuff like tropical fruits. Not things I would normally associate from Nelson Sauvin. Good in the bottle this is fantastic!

At the brewery - thanks to Toby for the pour. Lovely nose of apricot and peach. Fantastic fruity grapes with lesser flavours following the nose. Underneath is bitterish grapefruit marmalade and orange. Mild minerals. Semi dry finish with mild bitter linger. Fantastic!
500ml bottle. Beermerchants.com. Yep, I still love Nelson Sauvin hops and in this superb beer they smell and taste gorgeous. Soft kiwi and mango aromas, silky on the tongue, as mellow as you could ask for and with a hint of biscuit midway. A hazy orange appearance, a semi sweet long finish. Flippin gorgeous. gunnar (9403) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle from Ales By Mail. My IPA rating # 500. Pours almost clear golden with a solid creamy white head. Strong aroma of peaches, apricot and passion fruit, lovely, just lovely. Taste has the same footprint as suggested by the aroma, loaded with fruits, mild bitter freshness, marmelade sweet malts, a combination which suits my palate as hand in glove. Thanks to Kernel which provides me with this nectar from Be(e)rmondsey, and also have given me some golden moments with their IPAs .

a nice beer that i had recently good taste good after taste i would have it again Leighton (22027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2011
Bottle at home in London. Pours a slightly cloudy gold with a medium, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is mostly fresh grass hops with notes of pine, orange and grapefruit citrus, and straw. Flavor is well-rounded and delicious, sweetness of honey and light caramel, bitterness of grass, cat pee, restrained pine and citrus. Medium in body with average carbonation. Warm, sticky finish, some oily hops, toastted malts, delicate citrus and urine. Really nice. harrisoni (19165) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2011
33cl bottle from Sourced Market St Pancras Rail station. Hazy orange gold colour with thick ivory head. Now I do think NS is one of the most overrated hops in the world and so many beers have done diservice to it. When it’s done well, then it is superb but so many turn out to taste of sweaty socks. Aroma is intense NS, intense tropical fruit, sherbert and touch of cat pee. Tropical fruit juice in the mouth which is really very good indeed. Great mouthfeel and finish. So juicy as to be almost untrue. Some sweaty sox, cat pee on finish. Good bitterness on a very lasting finish. And although the aroma is excellent, the mouthfeel is just sublime. Just phenomenal. Wow. One of the best single hop NS beers I’ve had. Best British brewer this side, of well, just about anywhere really.
