Notes/Commercial Description:
An India Pale Ale featuring Nelson Sauvin hops. Named after the Sauvignon Blanc grape, is a variety of hop developed and grown in New Zealand. It has a strong fruity flavor and aroma that is described as resembling white wine, or fresh crushed grapes or gooseberries. Some reviewers of this hop perceive the fruitiness as being very tropical with descriptions including passion fruit, tangerines, and grapefruit. These hops are organic and are about 4 times as expensive as our normal American varieties.

8.2 % ABV ...

Pours gold/bronze with much effervescence, plus 2+ fingers of pearl white head. Great lacing & good head retention, big floaties at the bottom of the bottle (4.0)
S: Pineapples, grapefruit & a little bit pear & pine (4.25)

T: Pineapple, grapefruit, mangos, slight mineral hoppyness & some bready & pear notes up front. Pears, white grape, grapefruit & pineapple, plus dryness as this warms. Finishes dry, fruity & with plenty of pineapple (4.25)

MF: Medium bodied, delicate carbonation, great balance (4.25)

Drinks easy, belies its ABV, good but pretty pricey though (4.25)
