Pours a tawny amber in the tall Peroni glass. Fabulous aroma of flowery hops is the highlight. Plenty of carbonation and chunks of head slip down your throat on the first gulp.

A hint of sugar cookies but quickly buried under the huge hops. Deep pine in the nose. Not so much malt but enough for soft edges and a little sweetness. Fruity and full of citrus, but quite bitter. Great hop flavor and aroma that should be tasted by any San Diego area hophead.

From the 22 oz bottle bought at Liticker's Liquor & Deli in Ocean Beach.

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.
