Salvador Brewing Co. | Sgt. Nelson

Our sargent keep on breaking through frontiers in the search of new flavors and aromas. This time, he came back from his expedition with the New Zealander hop Nelson Sauvin. A beer that reveals, from its citric and fruity aroma, a touch of white wine and grape, delivering an intense, robust and very creamy Double IPA. (Source: Loosely translated from the beer's label.)

  • Beer: Sgt. Nelson
  • Style: Double New England IPA (21B. Specialty IPA: double-strenght New England IPA)
  • ABV: 8%
  • IBU: 74
  • Brewery:
  • Look: yellow to orange color, turbid, with a good white head formation that leaves marks on the glass;
  • Aroma: very fruity aroma, bringing remembrance of white grape and litchi notes.
  • Taste: the taste resembles the aroma, bringing fruity notes reminding white grape, mainly. On a lower level, citric fruits are noticeable, reminding lime and tangerine.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-high body, medium-high carbonation and a dry but long finish.
  • Overall: a very delicious New England Double IPA with an unusual but delicious hop profile. Gotta love that Nelson Sauvin hop!
