Appearance-Copper to amber in the glass with an eggshell foam.

Smell-Strawberry and cream with grassy flowers.

Taste-Scorched grass and earth for the majority of the palate with the same strawberries and cream from the nose coming in late in the finish.

Mouthfeel-Big but not overpowering with a good finish and smoothness.

Overall-I would've expected the mouthfeel to be a lot heavier based on the taste but it kept a nice balance through the long finish. Nicely done.

New world hops experience. Extraordinary hoppy beer, bringing in the totality of New World hops. Very lacy, bold but not palate erasing citrus
hops. Hop forward, comes on like 60 or higher ibu. A must try for hop fans, or most of us. Incredibly drinkable. Bomber from SD. I return the favour by circling Mother Earth for a visit in my next California trip.

Kismet is a fantastic example of a good use of Nelson hops. Not overwhelming with too much malt to balance the very distinct flavors.

New Zealand hops give this a citrus zing. Refreshing IPA from SoCal.

Canned 5/17/16 so about 5 weeks old. Smells of white/green grapes
Taste: very heavy in white grape taste, very much nelson sauvin flavoring
color: it's in a can who knows
feel: moderate thickness
Overall I think this more or less is a SMASH with nelson. I think nelson by itself is a bit much and needs another hop to balance this out whether it be citra, mosaic or maybe another more fruit/pine forward hop.
This tastes like a white wine + light ale mixed together and really shows how nelson sauvin tastes and smells. Definitely good experience for homebrewers to experience.
