I don't see what all the fuss is about this brewery. This beer was ok, but certainly not anything to wait in line for hours. This would be an average beer at best in the lineup of some of the best breweries in country.

This beer pours a cloudy golden color with a pillowy, two finger, bright white head. Retention is excellent and there are spots and chunky webs of lacing everywhere. Probably would have given this a 5 for appearance, but had to dink it for having many tiny white floaties.

Smell is excellent. Peaches, mango, tangerine and white grapes combine wonderfully with no sign of malt.

Taste is the same. Very tropical with a side of white wine/grapes.

Feel is light, pillowy soft and juicy. Carbonation is slightly lacking, but I received this growler via trade and the tag on it says it is recommended to drink within 24 hours. If it were more carbonated I doubt it would be so soft, so not taking anything away for that.

Overall a fantastic beer. Nelson beers are hit or miss for me bc I find many of them have too strong of a grape/wine flavor, but this one is spot on!

A: Lots of hops upfront, strongly fruity, berry/wine like aromas.

A: Golden color, lightly hazy, with a small compact uniform white head with decent retention. Light lacing left in the glass.

T: Big hoppy fruity berry/wine like flavor upfront, lightly juicy, with a very light hop bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Super tasty; the beer has an excellent hoppy aroma and flavor. For being a smallish IPA in terms of ABV, it delivers big flavor and the light haze adds a touch of body to the beer.
