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.

22oz bottle from IAmJacksHopTongue (thanks man!). No bottling info. Served in a Burnt Hickory snifter.

Pours a soft, hazy orange with a finger and a half head of tightly packed white bubbles. A thin film and modest halo remain that contribute to some attractive sheets of lace.

Inviting, almost tropical aromas of peaches, berries, oranges, grapefruit, flower petals and hint of malt sweetness. A restrained dankness creeps in as it heats up. Nice.

A delicious hop bomb of flavor. Grapefruit, mandarin, peach, earthy petals, mild strawberry, dank pine, a little crackery malt and a hint of peppery spice. Excellent balance with the hops prominent as they should be. Super smooth and easy drinking.

Medium light body with lively (but not overly so) carbonation. The aftertaste is slow to fade and carries more notes of citrus and dank pine.

Another win in my book for both Toppling Goliath and the Nelson Sauvin hop. Flavorful and easy to knock back, this is in the top of it's class and one in which I'd happily imbibe anytime.
