an absolute stunner, famous for a reason, and a reaffirmation of my love for the nelson sauvin hop, which is apparently the only one used in this honey thick milky yellow colored heady east coast ipa that comes with a whole heap of hype. aroma of white wine, lime, melon, more piquant citrus, sweet pine and birch, and some fresh cereal malt that likely include wheat and pils, but possibly also some oats and another pale barley, not overly complex on the malt, just enough to support all the hops. appreciably dry in the flavor, no grain interference, just some nice body. hops are all nelson all the way, and if you know that hop at all, its amazing. none of the cat pee warm or stale thing here that lesser beers with this hop sometimes have, instead its a bright tropical fruit complexion with pineapple and melon and again the lime coming to mind for me. bitterness has been tamed here, it doesnt linger at all on the palate after the swallow. juicy and hazy, mostly dry hopped, but its somehow different, more refined, better than the other huge milky india pale ales coming from the east. less turbid and nasty, more attention to detail, and of course, more nelson! carbonation is fine, body is bigger, creamy almost, and the booze is hidden well. great ipa, one of my favorites in awhile! worthy of its high praise over the years. so stoked to finally have had one!

Acquired from marino13412 so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is a nice combination floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel and citrus. Then a strong but not over-powering piney hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a very good 2IPA to drink for a long time.
