Pours a clear orange-golden with a big white head. Leaves huge gobs of lacing on the glass. You get one whiff of this and it just screams Nelson Sauvin hops. Dank, loads of weed stems, some white grape, citrus, a little sweetness... Taste is most of the same. Upfront bitterness with grapes and weed coming through. Pine as well. Biscuity malt with a good amount of sweetness at the back end. A bit bland at the finish. The malt comes through way more at the end. Mouthfeel is what you'd expect from an IPA. Maybe a little bit watery. Bitterness is good and doesn't overpower the aroma. Overall, a good Nelson-hopped IPA. I wouldn't put it up there with Alpine Nelson or Nelson Showers but eats easily available where I am and pretty affordable. Job well done Mother Earth.

The nose on this is so sweet and floral. Taste doesn't exactly match how excited I was after the nose but still a solid IPA.

Color- hazy dark gold. Full head.

Aroma- resinous pine, slight hint of spicy parsley, touch of grapefruit rind on wet earth.

Taste- a unique IPA with notes of earthy pine sap and citrusy hops finishing smooth with notes of earthy mushroom and hops. This is hard to get outside of CA. Traded for this with a colleague in San Diego.

Good IPA, a tad on the skunky side. The beer is good, just fell flat on the finish and that is where you get the real New Zealand style hop aroma. Good beer not great beer.

New Zealand hops give this a citrus zing. Refreshing IPA from SoCal.
