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.

Aroma is dominated by tropical fruit, with mango, papaya, and pineapple accompanying soft peach notes. Flavor reveals underlying tropical fruits accompanied by muted grapefruit. Strangely, fresh cut grass and onion mingle in. The light caramel malt holds the hop profile together with enough body for support into the lightly bitter, resiny finish. Onion becomes overwhelming as it warms.
