Not yet. I have both in stock and Im planning a southern hemisphere style IPA using Riwaka as well.

Heres my experience with all three of these NZ/Aussie hops...

Nelson Sauvin - It really does mimic NZ sauv blanc. Big grapefruit zest, a little grass, a lots of tropical fruit notes. Very similar to passionfruit, mango, and maybe even a little pineapple.

Galaxy - Similar to above with the Citrus being just a little more dominant than the tropical fruit, but both are there. Very similar to citra.

Riwaka - Remind me a lot of centennials. Grapefruit and very floral.

heres my planned recipe

70%eff
OG - 1.066
FG - 1.012-013
ABV - 7%
IBU - 69

9# 2-row
2.5# Vienna
1# flaked wheat
.5# melanoidin

1.5oz Riwaka 5.8%AA FWH
.5oz Galaxy 14% 60min
.5oz Nelson 12% 30min
1oz each Galaxy and Nelson KO
.5oz Riwaka KO

ferment with s-04

Dry hop with same hops and amounts as KO addition

The plan for the hop profile is to really feature the tropical fruit notes as well as the citrus, with the riwaka adding a little background floral note. Obviously I havent brewed this yet but Ive brewed similar nelson/citra beers.

I just did an imperial saison with a tripel recipe, Wyeast 3711, and Nelson Sauvin & Citra. Dry hopped with both. It is crazy good.

Widmer has a Nelson Imperial IPA out that should give you a good feel for the flavor of NS.

I sampled a DIPA a few days ago at a local brewery. Brewer said they used both Nelson Sauvin and Galaxy, and the Galaxy was mainly for aroma. The nose was quite captivating. a sweet smell--I can best describe it as "pretty"

I really enjoyed this combination in a beer.

I've heard the "pretty" description before. What exactly does that mean?

I have used them together. The beer also had Citra. Awesome, they really worked together. I only used the Nelson at Flameout.
