Big thanks to Buck89 for this one.
Can stamped: "A fist bump is a sacred contract 7/11/19" Indeed.
Bright, turbid straw to gold in hue. Fluffy white head. Dense at first, slowly retreats to a consistent loosely packed blanket of clumpy foam a half finger or so high. Good retention, scattered lacing.
Smell is well, a melange of strong tropical notes, non sweet pineapple, some bright young dank notes, a bit of pepper, then finally some citrus, and a bit of pine.
Taste is very faithful to the nose with a gritty yeastiness that comes through as well. Thankfully the citrus does not surrender to the Nelson. (I must state that Nelson is not one of my favorite hops, so caveat emptor before considering my opinion).
Mouthfeel is active and fluffy, and slightly full for style. I like that.
Overall, there is a LOT going on here. If you are a Nelson fan, dive in. You'll love it.
