Growler purchased at Beer'd this afternoon. First experience with this brewery. Very nice people and a nice little operation. Hope to see their beers in more places soon. All the beers I sampled were delicious.

A: Yellow and slight orange. Straw looking. Lots of lacing but not much visible carbonation coming from the bottom of the glass. Looks almost like a darker welshs white grape juice.

S: White grapes, peaches, apples and a bit of alcohol.

T: Definitely a single hopped Nelson beer all the way. I would be able to tell immediately even if the brewery did not mention it on the description. Lots of peach and white grapes. Alcohol isn't as present as in the nose. Nice bready malts in the back. Very nice.

M: Medium bodied. Good balance of carbonation to limit the alcohol presence.

O: This is a solid DIPA, and one that has definitely made me a fan of this brewery. Hope to check it out again soon and pick up some of their most-heralded Dogs and Boats DIPA.

Pours an impressive, thick snow-white head with incredible retention. Beer is nearly opaque, pulpy, and active, with a light, lemon-yellow hue with orange tinges. Leaves very nice lacing behind.

Aroma is a blend of citrus, pepper, and dank notes. Not much in the way of malts.

Tons of citrus and tropical fruit in the flavor: starfruit and mango come to mind. Big pepper notes, and a vague citric acid flowing along, with a final, vegetal dankness close behind. Not much in the malt profile, just giving enough of a biscuity background to allow the hops to shine. A little citrus peel on the finish, but with plenty of juicy tropical notes accompanying.

Juicy and refreshing feel; wet and long-lasting finish. Lively and smooth.

This is an excellent single-hop DIPA, and Nelson Sauvin was a great choice. As single-hops go, Nelson provides adequate bitterness, and an incredible depth and complexity to the flavor profile. This is a truly exceptional brew from a tiny nano-brewery, that honestly can stand up to some of the better DIPAs from more well-known breweries.

Picked up a growler the last time I was by the brewery this summer. Amazing Nelson hops, this DIPA was bursting with flavors. My one regret was picking up a 64 oz growler as opposed to a few 32 oz ones, it lost a little when I went back the next day. This is a big beer at 9.2% ABV. Get some.

64oz growler from Beer'd. Pours a translucent yellowish gold with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is fruity with some cherry, white grapes, green apple and floral notes. The taste is a mix of sweet cherry and peach along with some white grapes and green apple. Sour cherry towards the finish with some bitter floral hops. Some toasted malts. Mouthfeel is oily with a good amount of carbonation. Pretty noticeable alcohol presence, as expected by the ABV. Very drinkable. Overall, another hit.
