Availability: Rotating

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.

Pours an orange-golden straw. Brilliant color, but hazy. Lacing and legs are tremendous on this beer. The nose of this beer is complex. It's get some fruit, some hops, but the single note that steps up an takes over is an earthy, dank truffle. Kind of off-putting at first, but just like truffles keeps getting tastier. Taste - hoppy bitter, earthy, hoppy bitter, earthy truffle. For a beer, I'm glad the earthiness was more balanced or at least tamer than the nose. I'm super-glad I rated this beer over time as my palate adjusted. I am really impressed with the depth of flavor this beer gets off a single hops. Granted it's singular, but impressive. I dug it
