5 of 5

First attempt turned out fantastic. Very close to the real deal, though the color was off. I used a hop spider and hop sack when dry hopping, but still color was affected.

A friend's recent review:

Aroma - Perfect, bright, fresh and very aromatic

Appearance - a bit cloudy, BUT exactly the clarity of the Nelson beer that I recall (ala or Racer 5)

Flavor - Very pleasing, hops are prevalent but not overstated. I was looking for a touch more malt to balance it out which I'm not getting.

Mouthfeel - Good carbonation and head retention. The mouthfeel is pretty good up front, but it thins out as it moves across my palate and doesn't linger (I'm being very picky), but that also helps you drink more of it!!

Overall Impression - I'm personally extremely impressed (and am REALLY trying to find things to call out). There are ZERO flaws in this beer (diacetyl, etc).
