Duet it my fav of the three cuz it's jus so dang tasty!
Duet blew me away...Hoppiness is great but Duet > PH imo
Never got to try nelson : (
Hold on for the final verdict ladies and gentlemen.
Brett is cumming
Nelson. It's just so pretty to look at not to mention it's got the tropical fruit and ctrus notes that make an IPA taste amazing.
I cannot pick a best one just because I had them as part of one of my very first trades, maybe 2 years ago. I gave all three a '5' in my hads.
Totally agree Matt. Nelson is #1.
For now this is still the king. BUT, Duet seems to be getting better and better each batch and is quickly becoming a contendah......it's really becoming a toss up for me.
Really can't go wrong with any of them. Bad Boy was pretty nice too.
I'll throw my hat in the ring for Duet. Bought two bottles of Duet and two bottles of Nelson for $9.00 each (plus 8.75% sales tax) from Buzz Wine Beer Shop back in December. Duet was in their refrigerated section and Nelson was still in the cold, unopened case, right off the truck. Shared a bottle of each with a couple friends the next day and Duet was the unanimous winner - it was more fragrant, lively, and even more attractive. For what it's worth, I'm also a big fan of rye. Really though, both were excellent.
Duet is amazing. Nelson is great. I could use some Hoppiness.
Everyone that has been waiting......
The correct answer is Nelson, I don't even have to say way.
I am going for Hoppiness after I finish my Nelson, I like that change in direction between the two.
Nelson because Nelson.
Duet > Pure Hoppiness > Nelson. Why? Because that is the order of taste according to my palate.
ISO:any or all of these!!
Phuck all you mentioned and have their Bad Boy. Thread/
I guess I'm in a very small minority here, but I enjoyed Pure Hoppiness the most of the three. Nelson was very good, Duet a bit of a let-down.
3. Bad Boy
The only one I didn't drink within two weeks of brewing is Expo.
For me it's
Gotta say Duet was my favorite. Just a really well balanced IPA. Not a really big fan of Nelson, thought there was a strange garlic/onion flavor possibly due to the nelson sauvin hops.
In more important news, when the hell are they going to bottle Bad Boy and Hoppy Birthday?! Those two are freakin' tasty.
Nelson is best but it's shelf life is the most finite. If it's super fresh than it's better than the rest. So drinkable. Duet is a close second. PH is always a classic but is not as interesting as the other two. You can't go wrong with any of them.
I was there last Saturday. Had a quick lunch with a Duet, then grabbed some 22's and filled up my two growlers with Duet & Nelson.
I agree with The OP's order:
3. Pure Hoppiness
Just my preference, but you really can't go wrong with any of these fine beers!
Do you really have to ask?
