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.

Beautiful noonday sun in the glass. This one is dank: Potting soil, sticky bud, pine and rosemary herb notes. Overall a really nice beer, but doesn't quite reach the level of some of TG's other amazing hoppy beers.

Excellent body coupled with bittersweet citrus. I was very impressed with how refreshing this IPA tasted.

This bottle hit shelves less than two weeks ago.

Very nice showcase of the Nelson Sauvin hop. Great hoppy aroma with a lot of white wine characteristics. Taste followed the aroma, very juicy. The mouthfeel was great, smooth, distinctly similar in structure to other Toppling Goliath hoppy beers. Not sure if it is as good as pseudoSue, but it is pretty close IMO.
