Presentation: Poured into a pint glass on 'pint night' at the Flying Saucer in Columbia, SC
A: Beautiful, clear, golden-orange amber color with a nice thick 2-1/2 finger, off-white head. Fluffy, heavy, thick lacing.
S: Citrus, piney hops. Really nice! Some mild sweetness from the malts.
T&M: Full bodied. You can tell it's thickness when you pour. Well-balanced with hops and malts. Earthy, piney, citrusy taste that explodes as it fades to a semi-dry, oily hop finish. The hop bitterness is definitely there, but subdued perfectly with the malt sweetness.
Great stuff. They better keep it as a 'regular' pour at the Saucer or I'll have to cease and desist as a regular. ;)
Serving type: on-tap

From notes, 7/11/11. Nelson IIPA version. Appearance is fine. Mildly cloudy, bright orange. A dissipating head that stuck around for awhile as a thin film of bubbles. The aroma is grassy with tropical fruits - more kiwi/papaya than pineapple, like some hops. A bit grapey, too. Not quite strong enough for my taste but pretty good. On the palate, it starts out with some hop resin flavor with an alright crystal malt backbone, but the finish mars things with a big booze note that goes particularly poorly with the grassy bitterness. Mouthfeel is, well, hot. Plus, the beer is a bit sticky. Didn’t much like this one, despite the hop choice.
