Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: FreshHawk on 09-16-2011

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.

A - Opaque ruddy orange color. Creamy beige head, small bubbles, excellent retention. Small bits of lacing stick to the glass.

S - Green grapes skins, blood orange, hay, mustiness, light black pepper.

T - Starts out with earthy berries (sweet green grapes, gooseberry) and ripe melon, then into a dank, whole mouth bitter bite which lasts into the long-lingering aftertaste.

M - Creamy, medium-low carbonation but it still delivers a mild bite.

O - It's pretty complex, I drank most of the glass just trying to figure out what I was tasting. I need another.

The smell and taste of this IPA just are not your classic fresh IPA taste and smell
