a - Light amber ale with one inch of head

s - Definite Nelson hops here - bitter/floral/fruity and very bready. Its very different then most IPA's but I really like the balance and complexity. I keep smelling it several times before wanting to sip.

t - Taste like it smells - bready with a lot of unique hop fruit and bitterness. Differnt then the typical West Coast IPA but very good. Definite bitterness in the taste but its balanced with the floral/fruit/whole graininess.

m - Medium body and nice bitterness.

o - Pretty good and unique IPA. Interesting aroma, good mouthfeel, nice flavor. Definitely worth a try for its uniqueness.

New world hops experience. Extraordinary hoppy beer, bringing in the totality of New World hops. Very lacy, bold but not palate erasing citrus
hops. Hop forward, comes on like 60 or higher ibu. A must try for hop fans, or most of us. Incredibly drinkable. Bomber from SD. I return the favour by circling Mother Earth for a visit in my next California trip.

Kismet is a fantastic example of a good use of Nelson hops. Not overwhelming with too much malt to balance the very distinct flavors.

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

Appearance-Copper to amber in the glass with an eggshell foam.

Smell-Strawberry and cream with grassy flowers.

Taste-Scorched grass and earth for the majority of the palate with the same strawberries and cream from the nose coming in late in the finish.

Mouthfeel-Big but not overpowering with a good finish and smoothness.

Overall-I would've expected the mouthfeel to be a lot heavier based on the taste but it kept a nice balance through the long finish. Nicely done.
