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.

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.

Really cool hop profile. I could we falling in love with these if done well. I have to assume they aren't gong to get much better for 6.99 a bomber

I'm not very failure with Nelson Savina hop variety but it's definitely worth trying if you want to know what this hop is all about. The aroma and taste are unique. Can't say I'm a big fan of the hop but I think this beer was put together very well.
