Notes: BBBrighttt Nelson was created to be an intense yet elegant showcase for Nelson Sauvin, one of our favorite hops!

It builds upon the base beer with an amplified flavor profile as a function of additional kettle and dry hopping. It is an intense and fruity concoction that tastes much like fresh-squeezed orange juice and juicy white wine.

We find it to be tremendously drinkable in spite of its stature, and we believe it is the perfect beer for those in search of intense flavor and supreme refreshment.

16 ounce can in a tall tulip IPA glass. Dated 11/4/2021.

Held to light, yellow gold and bright. One finger of white foam drops rapidly . Heavy waves of soapy lacing.

Aroma is heavy on OJ and pineapple juices. There’s a background tropical blend and it’s a bit dank.

It tastes like a vodka screwdriver with a dash of pineapple juice. Alcohol soaked rind rises.
Puckering lemons.

Feel touches just on medium. Dry pithy bitterness. Tropical and citrus rind flavors linger.

As juice bombs go, it’s pretty good. Packed drinkable and flavorful with an abv punch.

Just hazy enough where I can still make out my finger looking through the glass, but pretty cloudy gold yellow with a frothy white head and medium lacing. Lemon, cantaloupe, dank, herbs, rosemary on the nose. Lemony, very bright (what do you know) taste, white wine, maltiness in there as well. Creamy mouthfeel, small bubbles.

Pours hazy gold color with a 2 finger whipped foamy white colored head that was packed with bubbles of all sizes, fading slowly and leaving really nice foamy lacing. Wow, this nose is pungent with the Nelson Sauvin giving off a super fresh mix of lemon zest, weed buds just clipped off the stems, fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, lemon juice, yuzu, coriander, flowers, white wine, grapes, tropical fruit, grass clippings and wet citrus hops. The aroma does come off as bright/fresh hops mixed with a little bit of cat piss weed.

Tastes so lemony that it's almost tart, with lemon zest, grapefruit juice, dank weed, yuzu, tangerine, pineapple, coriander, fresh cut flowers, white wine, tropical fruit like melon and white grapes. There is a malty backbone that consists of biscuit, peppery spices and sweet grains; the malty aspects actually balance out the flavor and keep it from being too bitter. A really tasty single hop brew that's really well done.

Pours slightly hazy, gold in color with one inch head. Taste is white grape, lychee, with dank hops. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly bitter. Nice addition to the Bright lineup. Have had better from Tree House but this is solid.

Canned on 8/11/21; consumed on 8/25/21

Pours a hazed burnt orange with a light golden sheen and topped with multiple fingers of fluffy, eggshell-white foam; great head retention leaves ¾ of a finger of near-creamy cap, an expansive collar, and a generous spatter of webby/spotty, soapy lacing encompassing the walls of the glass.

Aroma offers intermittent pineapple juice setting a fading tone into waves of lychee, banana peel, and ripe guava, peaking with tinges of strawberry compote expressed over the bouquet; an underlying dank white grape 'pops' through the back end, easing into a dry, grassy hop character on the close.

Taste opens with hints of gooseberry accented with tannic raspberry leaning into fresh white wine grape in the backdrop, leaving tangerine zest delivering a subtle citrus profile to the mid-palate while flaky malts, wet grass, and a spicy, slight catty dankness close.

Mouthfeel features a level, medium body with a seltzer-dry, fluffy, moderate-high carbonation, dispersing prickly resins over the mid-palate to show an encroaching bitterness over time, peaking with a dry, lightly gritty finish.

Refined bursts of tropical sweetness sporting resinous undertones and an a quasi-winelike dryness for balance; in this instance, the Nelson here is more of a welcome accessory to the usual Tree House excesses.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Tree House in Sandwich for about nineteen dollars. My one hundred and seventy fourth brew from these guys. Nelson is my favorite hop, loved this.
