L - 1-finger head atop a murky yellow body.

S - honey, sweet orange slices, herb.

T - quite sweet honey-dipped orange candy, mixed with semi-sweet dessert wine. Earthy middle. Low bitterness. Moderate sweetness. No booziness.

F - medium-full body with average carb.

O - tastes totally different than the non-DDH. Much sweeter, but less urine.

Quite hazy amber orange color with a thick head.
Delicious fruity aroma with notes of mango, passion fruit and white grapes.
Flavor with notes of mango, some strawberries, oats, passion fruit, pine resin and a bit of lactic acid. Dry aftertaste with a relatively present but hidden bitterness. Alcohol of 8.6% is superbly disguised.
Full body with appropriate carbonation.
This Juicy DIPA nose is to die for; super tropical with Nelson expected white vinous notes. Mouth follows a similar path, green and yellow citrusy with tropical notes and white wine drops.

maybe my favorite of the hoppy ones from when we visited these guys, although they are all so good, so distinct to other half, even if some of them are quite samey when all lined up, you know its other half beer you are drinking. i just love nelson, so i sort of naturally gravitated to this, its a little lighter in color than most of the others, pale yellow, even washed out looking, with a lasting quarter inch of pure white head on it from the tap. aroma is beautiful, so obviously nelson hops, they must have used a boatload of them in this brew. distinct lime leaf, lemon zest, sauv blanc wine, and passion fruit notes come to mind here, lemongrass and peach juice even too, so bright and fresh in this, weighed down only just a little bit by a wheaty, starchy malt base that supports all the hops just fine, and keeps the higher abv from being relevant as well. not overly flavorful on the grain, none of them really are, but they clearly have a formula for the malts on these that works in such a heavy dry hopping context, this feels creamy from the grain and slick and oily from the hops, a nice textural intermingling there. nelson for days on the finish, no bitterness at all, this is a great showcase of these hops and one of the better hazy ipa types we had in the city...

On tap at Albany Ale and Oyster in Albany, NY.

This one pours a very hazy golden yellow, with a small foamy head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like passionfruit, mango, white wine, piney hops, and grassy hops.

This is a fairly fantastic expression of the Nelson hop. It's so fresh and fruity, with mostly passionfruit and mango, and a little bit of that white grape thing you always get with Nelson hops.

This is so bright and juicy, with a great level of drinkability, and a soft carbonation.

I'm a sucker for anything in the Daydream series. This is yet another great version.
