Teku glass. Bottle. Deep amber, little hazy with medium, densed white head. Fairly lasting. Medicore lacing. Fresh vinous aromas, with hints of citrus (orange), also light floral aromas. Taste is medium bitter (grapefruit like), earthy and little harsh. Good malty background. Tasty, refreshind and quite drinkable IPA.

Since when is this one no longer brewed? I have one that was bottled on 26/02/2014. Anyway, apart from the aroma, I found this one a bit flat compared to the others in the single hop series. I like NS hops but this one did not shine. Still decent though

Snagged a bottle from a Co-op liquor store in SW Calgary. Poured into an American pub glass, this single-hop IPA is a cloudy reddish-orange amber hue with a massive off-white head. Foamy indeed and the head maintained its shape like a snowball just sitting there on the brew itself. Features a very perfumed tropical fruit smell that includes lychee, mango, muscat grape, honeydew melon, and gooseberry notes. I could not smell much else beyond a vague tangy spice. Palate is also rank tropical fruit, spicy, and a little sour. A caramel candy malt backbone does become more robust and toasty as the palate adjusts to the tropical fruit flavors described earlier. Great flavor hop showcase with just enough sweet malt to prevent things from being cloyingly fruity. This unique hop starts tropical and stays that way but a wine-like green spiciness accumulates and the finish is green leaf, pineapple skin and minerals, pretty bitter. Goes down smooth and comes off as much lighter than the ABV would suggest despite the assertive flavors. I'd have another.
