4.36/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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. (1,072 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

L: Hazy gold, tight white head with nice lacing, really elegant-looking beer.
S: 100% Nelson Sauvin hops, and there's no mistaking that with the smell. Smell's like a big white wine with citrus and peach undertones.
T: White peaches and white grapes dominate the flavor profile.
F: Silky, somewhat dry and a nice amount of carbonation; really easy to drink an almost-perfect amount of stickiness in the finish.
O: really nice but not as good as NEBCO's Coriolis. (462 characters)

I've had many of the offerings from here. Most of them only differ slightly. I liked it but I liked it even more when mixed 50/50 with the more subdued Grove Stand. (164 characters)

Beer'd Brewing Co. has a knack for creating delectable IPAs. Two fingers of fluffy egg-shell head on the pour, with significant patches of lace running down the glass. The aroma from the Nelson Sauvin hops is interesting; there are fruity esters running amok on my naval cavity that beget the conception of beer and wine. The taste is a distinct mix of mango, peach and subtle cherry notes. The malt profile is well played, and certainly complimentary to this somewhat virtuoso performance of delectable New Zealand hops. Semi-slick, buttery, and a tinge peppery on the back end. Only in the finish could I really detect the pronounced ABV of this masterfully crafted DIPA. Kudos, Aaren. Another smash hit for Beer'd. (717 characters)
