750ml growler courtesy of Ruth, thanks!
Pours pale, hazy gold with a half inch head of white. Tattered lacing and a partial skim coat for the duration.
Aromatics lead off with peach fuzz, pears, dank weed, and tropical fruit. Floral and fruity but short of pungent.
Light to medium bodied with a crisp, drying mouthfeel.
Tropical fruit and hop resin starts the palate. Extremely light malt character, perhaps a bit biscuity and that's it. Low bitterness with plenty of peach, mango, and a hint of pine.
Finishes with some lingering fruit but quite dry and quenching.
Great beer with plenty of Nelson character. Would I drive hours to stand in line hours to get a growler though? No.

Pour is a cloudy pale yellow with a fluffy pure white head. Nose is heavy tropical fruit of pineapple and grapefruit with a nice balance of grain and bread crust. Taste is very balanced, strong clean grain, less hop forward than the nose. Carbonation is strong and the body is light with a powerful bitterness on top of the grapefruit on the rear end of the palate.
