Notes: Hear ye! Hear ye!.. it’s been a while since we’ve had one of our favorite hops in house, but we managed to get our hands on some 2021 Nelson Sauvin. There was only one logical thing to do, so we brewed up a super soft and juicy IPA. We hit it with Nelson and just a touch of Citra in the kettle and whirlpool, then proceeded to saturate it with a generous double dry hop of straight Nelson delight! Notes of freshly crushed white grape, summer passion fruit wine, and a touch of gooseberry to follow. Lord Nelson has thrown down the gauntlet, time to drink up!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pour: a lovely completely opaque ruby tinged orange. 2 fingers of foamy white head reduces to a beautiful ring, leaving sudsy lacing in its path to the bottom.

aroma: bitter hop, pine, white grape juice, citrus rind, lemon, and earthy grass round out the bill.

flavor: largely follows suit. Initial taste of grape juice, pineapple, and citrus. Bitter/dank hop profile rounds out the bill, finishing pine.

feel: silky smooth, very full, the hop bite is just enough to cut through and make this a crisp and easy drinker.

Overall: killer beer. Would be glad to drink more.
