22 oz bottle from Beers of Europe, England in a tall tulip glass.
A-Pours a very hazy, rusty, chestnut color with an average, off-white, frothy head which settles to a thin froth and leaves similar lace.
A-The nose is typical Nelson Sauvign hop with the passion fruit, lots of lime, rustic and floral, a bit of tangerine, and faint toasted caramel.
T-A bit of a hop letdown with still plenty of lime, very leafy and floral, light passionfruit, rustic notes moving into the finish. The palate is medium to full, nearly lively, velvety, and slightly oily. The beer finishes with more rustic and lime, still leafy, and slightly caramelly. A very nice use of the New Zealand hops with the tropical fruit notes and pleasant, moderately high bitterness. The malts add just enough sweetness to balance and avoid from being dry and astringent.
M-Wonderfull creamy texture, averagely carbonation.
O-A different take on the modern DIPA-style; very satisfying, rich, bold IPA.
