Special thanks for weare138 for this limited release treat. This was bottled from a keg for sampling purposes.

App: Clear and clean. Clear orange-copper color. Thin head with light lacing, but not sure how much I can expect from the kegged bottling.
Aroma: Gorgeous. Delicious smelling hop this Nelson Sauvin. Sweet, resiny, pineapple and grapefruit dominate.
Taste: Taste very much resembles the nose, which is nice, but it's even bigger and better. Pineapple, grapefruit, pine needles, sweet fruit, and a good malt backbone to compliment the strong hopping.
Mouth: Wet, thick,a little viscous, and ends medium dry.
Drink: Oh yeah, this one is really delicious and the hop is so mild yet full flavored that drinking a few of these would not get old.

This was my IPA pick for the year at the 2007 IPA project. I loved it so much I made sure to snag a full pint before it kicked.

A-Clear copper with a thin off-white head that left behind spotty lace.

S-Wonderful aroma! I do not have knowledge of ever having a brew with this hop....but if I can I will make sure I do again. Absolutely lovely with sweet white grape notes, resin, pineapple, grapefruit and peach.

T-This is a citrus fruit hop lovers dream. The flavour simply jumps out and grabs hold of your tongue. Interesting suggestion of white wine grapes. All of this is powerful but not overpowering...plain and simple truly wonderful!

M-Medium body and verges on cloying but never reaches that point. Nice crispness and ends with a fair amount of dryness.

D-Bring it on!! Please oh please make a single hop IPA with Nelson Sauvin hops again! I am in love....and I thought Amarillo was the end all be all!
