Clear orange color with off-white head. Aroma has some bright hops with tropical fruit flavors. Taste has also nice fruity hop flavors, not too bitter, really hoppy and tasty. Medium body and carbonation, quite smooth. Really well made, easy drinking, aromatic IPA.

Canned date of 12/19/16

Appearance - Pours crystal clear and brilliant orange copper in color with an off-white, half-finger head that dissipates within seconds, leaving behind a thin, broken layer of suds and a thin ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell - Pine and citrusy aroma with a bit of cattiness. Hints of toasted malt.

Taste - Follows the nose. Fair notes of pine and citrus with a touch of toasted malt. Hints of honey sweetness develop as the brew warms. Finishes more sweet than bitter.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with fair carbonation. Smooth enough drinker, but nothing noteworthy.

Overall - Has a very 'Alpine' feel to it, but not nearly the developed flavor. It's good, but not great and for the price I'll look elsewhere in the future.

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.

Canned on 4/26 so a little over month old. Pours into tulip with a light ruby red color. Smell and taste pretty much follow as a nice mellow tropical hop bomb with notes of papaya, kumquats, white grape and finished with a more classic American C hop of pine and citrus. Nice malt sweetness that doesn't get in the way of the hop entree but lends a complementary biscuit quality. Mother Earth, thanks for distributing to Las Vegas! Some great IPAs.
