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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: very cloudy yellow. Pastel yellow. Forms a a moderately large foamy white head. Very minimal lacing.

S: incredibly juicy. Lots of citrus, orange, mandarin, candied citrus peel.

T: taste is similar, but a bit less complex than the aroma. Slightly bready. Orange, citrus, and tangerine. Not quite as juicy. There is a slight astringency on the finish.

M: lighter bodied. Mild bitterness

O: A nice IPA. Would be very nice over the summer.

Serving type: growler
