COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ipa with New Zealand Nelson hops.
This zeelicious single hop IPA showcases the rare Nelson Sauvin hop from New Zealand. Delightfully confusing aromas of citrus and mandarin oranges give way to an incredibly complex body of earth tones and marigolds. This is truly like any hop youve ever tasted.

Tap at Dexters pre party. Clear medium amber. Lots of berry Nelson hops in the nose and flavor, light biscuit malt presence in the flavor. Dry finish, bitterness at a 5. Mod carbonation with a light to med body. Very tasty. Will add more at the great taste.

fidelis83 (2383) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 1, 2017
Very cloudy gold pour with a tall, chunky white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is loaded with mandarin orange, lemon, passionfruit, tart melon and slightly earthy, toasty malt notes. Flavor is big, big citrus up front, lemon and orange peel, musty earthiness, dank hops, passionfruit a bit of cat box and some light biscuity, bready malt. Medium body, creamy feel, light, to blanketing, delightfully blanketing carbonation. Really fantastic.

Nuffield (4142) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Bright citrus, especially orange, with some pine. Great aroma. Warms well, releasing the big nose. Flavors are expected and less striking. Good, rounded, normal IPA. Bottle.

Bottle drunk 11/6/16.
Bright lemon-golden body is topped by a full, white head showing moderate to strong retention. High clarity.
Straightforward Nelson in the nose, but very nicely done, adding bright lemon, limestone, guava and wine-like minerality. It runs in to a lot of malt sweetness; big honey notes, with very light caramel and biscuity notes, as well. Some mild earthiness and no resin, thankfully, nor alcohol.
Very supple, malty body shows quite a bit of sugar still remaining. Its not underattenuated, but certainly a lot sweeter than the New England IPAs Im used to drinking (which, understandably, have to be a lot more dry to make up for the fact that theyre very low on IBUs). Anyways, the beer is still very nicely hopped with lots of wine character, lemon, cherry, strawberry and more limestone. Light earthiness and a touch of dry ash help soak up the malt. No alcohol or flaw.

muzzlehatch (4942) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 12, 2016
22 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served fairly cold in a Guinness glass. Pours an immense frothy quite stable off-white head topping a very faintly hazy or oily dark gold - pale amber body...big aromas of sour or lightly sweet orange, a bit of mango, and after a couple of minutes some piney/resinous notes; also, interestingly, a touch of smoke (cigarette & wood ash)...body is moderately sweet, a bit acidic, with a citric character slightly reminiscent of Mountain Dew, quite juicy throughout, lightly yeasty...finish is only a bit drier, but definitely more bitter/hoppy with a hint of pepper and again that very subtle smoky note...body is full, lightly syrupy, with low to moderate carbonation, just a bit sticky. Another winner from TG in the hoppy department, though the stickiness and fullness of this one make it a little tough to have a go at a whole 22.

Pours a glowing honey color with a honey yellow head. Huge lacing. Sweet aroma. A little IPA souring but on the lighter side. A tad bit aqueous. Aftertaste is just sour. Not much flavor to back it up.
