Nelson Sauvin NEIPA?

Post by Paddington » Mon Dec 03, 2018 9:59 pm

I'm trying to use up some hops I've had for a while. I'm considering using Nelson Sauvin in a New England IPA, possibly with some Mosaic too. I have only used Nelson Sauvin once and I know it is quite a distinctive hop (and not a US one). Will it be likely to suit the style?

Nelson Sauvin's flavour is obviously from an different stable, but authenticity aside they've still got their own bolshy character so I don't see why they wouldn't work as such. It mostly depends if you really like them in large quantities, they aren't exactly subtle and would be too extreme for me (though similar could be said of NEIPAs in general, so I may not be the most objective).

I wouldn't but it is the North East of the South Island so you can still call it a NEIPA. :D
