Notes/Commercial Description:
Zelicious single-hop showcase using the Nelson Sauvin hop from New Zealand. Delightfully confusing aromas of citrus and mandarin oranges give way to an incredibly complex body of earth tones and marigolds. This is truly unlike any hop you’ve ever tasted.

Phenomenal IPA. Full bodied, but incredibly drinkable. The Neslon Sauvin hop has a wonderfully delicate presence of passion fruits and citrus. The finish is very nice. It is not as juicy as a Pseudo finish, but rather subtle dance of citrus and dryness. The nose almost hints a Pseudo/citra hop. A really nice beer. And, super fresh might I add.

From notes on 2/8/14

Orange reddish color. Mild hop aroma. Odd earthy hop flavor. Not bad, just different them what I’m used to. Not very bitter. I’d order a pint of it in a bar, but I probably wouldn't pay for another bomber of it. Slightly costly at $7 a bottle.

Reviewed from notes. Twenty-two ounce bottle shared by Richard - thanks.

A: Pours a hazy yellow with a half-inch thick white head which fades to a thin cap and leaves splotchy lace.

N: Bursting with tropical fruits and citrus and melon, very floral.

T: Softly hopped or the Nelson itself is soft here. Grassy/herbal, citrus and tropical fruits all over. Well balanced mildly sweet malts.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Slightly bitter and sticky finish.

O: Quite good. Would love to have again.
