3.5/5  rDev -11.6%

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.

Very high opacity, mild initial dose of hops that longer a bit. But for 7.4% ABV, drinks more like a pale ale than an IPA. The Nelson hops come trough, but the single-hop variety doesn't offer anything for its complexity.
