Interesting and pleasing aroma from the exclusive use of Nelson hops. White wine and spruce with slight lemon notes.

Strong hop flavor exemplifying the same characteristics but finishing a little harshly and medicinally. Could be the characteristic of the hops.

The finish is turning me off a bit.
