Very juicy and sweet. Sort of like marmalade. Tastes like Nelson hops. Pretty damn good. Only problem is that the alcohol is very noticeable

strong grape-like flavor from Nelson Sauvon hops, similar to Rico Sauvin but not as good

A perfect golden pour with a nice big sticky head that laces perfectly. It smells sweet and floral, but the taste is very bitter dominated by grassy, piney hops. Mouth feel was lighter and less oily than I expected, but overall I'd say it's a nice change of pace from my usual Elysian haunts.
