Growler. Super excited for this one; my favorite hop utilized by one of the best brewers. Pours cloudy and opaque yellow. Nice, doughy head. Aroma is full of Nelson Sauvin goodness. The hop is incredibly unique. Earthy, white grapey, and tropical fruity. Has the Hill Farmstead aroma I pick up in all their hoppy beers. The flavor is super smooth and loaded with tropical fruits. The Nelson hops aren't necessarily tame but some of the funkier flavors I pick up in the hop are mellow. It still is loaded with hop-juice, fruit flavor. The malt is awesome pale and bread that accentuates the hops. Lighter bodied with a softer carbonation. Not super bitter. I think my hopes for this one were set a little bit too high. It's a great beer but I have seen this hop showcased more effectively in other brews.
