Notes / Commercial Description:
Unicorn Farm is our newest IPA! We managed to find some Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand, the unicorn of all hops, and used a whole bunch in this beer. Fruity with white wine characteristics, Unicorn Farm is packed with a fabulous aroma, low bitterness and is delicate on the palate.

On tap at 2 Bros. Pours a cloudy burnt yellow color with an inch plus of frothy white head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is a big whiff of Nelson hops. Stone fruits and white wine. Some dried hay as well. The taste is stone fruits all the way. Nicely bitter with a dry finish. Lightly toasted malts come out at the end. Maybe a hint of floral/pine hops at the finish. Medium bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Overall, fantastic IPA.

Growler from Brewery: This one pours a fairly milky light golden color. Minimal head and no lacing. Nice nose. Fruity, almost white wine like nose. The taste is very good. Low bitterness, but higher on the fruity hop scale. Citrus and tropical hop flavors, and maybe a touch of Sauvignon Blanc wine. Very tasty!
