Style: American Blonde Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.10%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A Blonde Ale brewed entirely with Nelson Sauvin hops, a New Zealand varietal that melds beautifully with a simple bill of pale malts. This is a true "session beer" and one that does not make any compromises. It has a delicate bouquet of passionfruit and a slight lemon flavor that will surely quench your thirst.

Can: Poured a hazy and cloudy yellow color ale with a medium size white foamy head with OK retention and some good lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits with dry leafy hops notes is quite enjoyable. Taste is dominated by tropical fruits with quite a bit of residual sugar notes and some leafy hops notes with a somewhat dry finish. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Another enjoybale and refreshing beer form TH.

Filled at the brewery about 2 hours ago.

Pours a light fizzy head that fades semi quickly with a bit of lacing, hazy golden sunset yellow orange colored beer, similar to a wheat beer. The color is nice but the head left something to be desired.

NOse brings plenty of fresh Nelson Sauvin hops, grassy floral with a little earthy twinge, bright musty citrusy fruit but more like a light lemon and little pineapple orange like, little musty grape skin like vinous quality, all that with a touch of a light sweet toasty grainy blond malt.

Taste brings some golden malts at first, a little sweetness, but at the same time a dry grainy bready kinda malt flavor, almost wheat like but not quite, little toasty almost biscuit also but not quite, but a fluffy feel. Then hops, light bitterness but nice musty flavor, again plenty of Nelson Sauvin flavors, little grassy hay and slight earthy, musty grape skin vinous must, little floral at the same time light citrusy fruit again, just a hint lemony and grapefruit rind, abd quite a bit of that slightly tannic musty fruit skin flavor. Finish is dry but somehow a bit sticky, bitterness increases nicely but not a ton, lingering grassy floral hops, with a touch of spiciness and some light vinous musty grape skin again.

Mouth is med to a bit lighter bodied, tons of fluffy effervescent carbonation.

Overall pretty nice, showcases the Nelson Sauvin grapes well, and I'm loving the kiwi hops lately so its great. The malts bring enough profile to not only prop up the hops but bring their own profile and it melds well with the hops. Light easy drinking beer that I could pound a full 2L growler in the late spring early summer probably. Cheers Nate to another well done beer!

Poured 8/23/15 from a 750ml growler that was filled at the brewery on 8/22/15, into a US tumbler glass.

A: The beer is a light cloudy yellow color, with a medium foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a very thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, light caramelized malts and fruity citrus.

T: The taste starts out with a nice burst of grassy hops bitterness. Then some mild citrus and caramel sweetness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly bready.

M: Very crisp and very smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, very mild kick, good hoppy representation of style, this is a very solid beer to drink for a long time.
