great showcase of Nelson hops -- tropical fruits and citrus with some notes of peach as well. Very crisp and crushable -- definitely one of my favorites.

From growler purchased 8/6/15 into belgian ale glass.

Pours hazy apricot, a little more bold than straw. Big foamy head, long retention, lots of lacing.

Lots of tropical fruit and citrus up front. Balanced malt profile, some bitterness on finish.
