499. Hill Farmstead Nelson Sauvin Pale Ale
Seems like a lot of breweries are offering single hop varieties of their pale ales and IPAs. Fortunately the ones that are doing it are doing it well. The list includes, Portsmouth Brewery with their Project X series, Blue Lobster with their Excess is not Rebellion series and Hill Farmstead is doing a number of pale ales.
Nelson Sauvin is a hop from New Zealand that is gaining popularity in the US. The coloring is very similar to Edward the flagship pale ale from Hill Farmstead and it just looks great in the Hill Farmstead glass. Aroma has a nice pineapple and other tropical fruit smell. Taste follows with plenty of hop goodness and just enough of a malt bill to keep things balanced.
This beer is very refreshing, easy to drink and is truly enjoyable as most Hill Farmstead beers are.
