Cellarmaker Wild Gooseberry Chase
What the brewers say
"100% Nelson Sauvin Hopped."
What our panel thought
"Diverse aromas: black peppercorns, lemon, mushroom, lemongrass, grape must. Aromas weave seamlessly into flavor, with pronounced grapefruit pith lingering from front to back. Soft sweetness lifts the fruity grape character. Bitterness is a bit restrained, allowing the vinous notes to linger."
What our editors thought
"Dry, pungent, woody, tannic, almost gueuze-like, with subtle mid-tone vinous notes underneath. The sip is dry, with nary a stray Plato to be found. Thoughtfully constructed with a sophistication not typically found in ‘IPA.’"
