There are a few hops out there that brewers everywhere are constantly in pursuit of, and Nelson Sauvin is one of of them. We wanted to brew something that would convey our excitement about this hop, and out of that desire, our Nelson IPL was born. By using a lighter malt base, a blend of pilsner and 2-row, and a squeaky clean German Lager yeast, this allows Nelson to show off, and rightfully so. Exploding with white wine fruitiness and gooseberry, we recruited the assistance of Wakatu and Dr. Rudi to balance the hop profile. This beer is a spotlight on New Zealand and we hope you grow just as fond of the Southern Hemisphere as we have.
