Default Just bought a pound of Nelson Sauvin. What should I brew?

So just like the title says, I just bought a pound of Nelson Sauvin Hops, a hop I've never used. What should I brew? If anyone has a recipe (all grain) they like that really showcases this hop that would be awesome!

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!

An ipa would be a good choice, if you aren't familiar with the flavor of the hop, widmer brothers makes an ipa using Nelson sauvin

IPA or Double IPA

they are good on their own, but they definitely have a very unique flavor profile to them

i love them blended with fruity/cirtus hops to help cut some of the strong NS flavor

def use them for dry hopping as well

they pair very well with rye

they are the most pungent and strong flavored hops i've used so may want to start a little light with them

i've used them solo in a blonde ale that was pretty good but my favorites have been in IPAs, one was with simcoe and citra, 1 oz each at 20min, 1 oze each at flameout and 1oz each dry hop.

right now i've got an india pale lager that use 5oz of nelson along with amarillo, simcoe, nugget and citra - i've had a few tastes and it's very tastey so far but it's only been lagering for a few weeks. i'll be transfering to a new keg soon and adding the 2nd round of dry hops

This. I have it on tap right now and its delicious. I mashed at 153 and used dennys favorite

you could probably sub chinook or simcoe for the southern cross.
