A New Zealand IPA using only Nelson Sauvin and brewed to celebrate Gipsy Hill’s one hundredth batch, this is a pretty good little bottle of beer.
It pours a pale gold with a little fuzzy head and smells of Nelson Sauvin, you know, all green grapes, gooseberries, a hint of white wine and a splash of lime.
And as you’d expect, that is where the flavours begin when you take a swig.
Sure there’s a nice soft creamy caramel and biscuit malt, a lick of honey and some bread dough, but it’s the Nelson Sauvin that makes this beer so yummy.
And yes, that is a technical term.
This is a big juicy, fruity, fresh and fragrant beer, a beer with a lovely gooseberry and kiwi kick and a really long dry finish.
