Pours quite cloudy. An inch of white foam exits. Retention is rather low for an IPA. Lacing is thin in nature, numerous and consistent.
Aroma is pale malt, touch of sweet. Lots of hops. Grapefruit, orange with pine hiding behind. Resinous, almost dank.
Taste is definitely sweet, accompanied by bursting hop flavors. Grapefruit and orange. Pine accents again. The beer is so dry, bitterness does build after a while.
Heaving end of medium body, maybe bleeding into the lower end of light-heavy. Carbonation is medium. Well fit for the beer. Dries the palate.
A very drinkable IPA. In spite of the dryness there is to much sweetness throughout. It almost tries to juice up the mouth. The hops are nice, just not perfect. Definitely worth a try. Enjoy!

This zeelicious single hop IPA showcases the rare Nelson Sauvin hop from New Zealand. Delightfully confusing aromas of citrus and mandarin oranges give way to an incredibly complex body of earth tones and marigolds. This is truly unlike any hop you’ve ever tasted.
