Widmer Nelson Imperial IPA

CIMG7401

Here’s an IPA showcasing the interesting Nelson Sauvin hop from New Zealand. This hop is popping up more and more in American beers. This beer features Pale, Carapils, and C-10 malts with Alchemy, Cascade, Willamette, and Nelson Sauvin hops.

Stats:
Imperial India Pale Ale. 8.6% ABV. 70 IBUs. Oregon.

Burnt orange color, very clear appearance. Decent head and some wonderful lacing.

Nice aroma with a hoppy fruity quality. I’m getting some mangos and oranges with a hint of pineapple, and a hint of caramel underneath it all.

Mouthfeel is quite light for an imperial IPA, but not too bad. Medium body with medium carbonation.

Tropical fruits fill the palate when you first sip, but with a healthy dose of hop resin. Hint of leather on the back, but fairly light and a nice fruity finish.

It’s a solid beer, but also pretty forgettable. It is approachable as the bitterness is really kept in check, as well as the alcohol. 87 points.
