Alpine Nelson - Golden Rye IPA

Alpine Beer Company's Nelson is a Golden Rye IPA that's brewed with Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand. This is a unique hop that isn't very prominent in American micro brews. An added twist comes from the addition of rye in the malt bill. It comes in at 7% ABV. I cracked a fresh bottle and this is what I thought:



Bomber pours into my glass a deep orange/yellow with a two finger creamy, bubbling white head and superb clarity. Aromas start with a distinct tropical, pungent, fruity hop explosion. Grapefruit melds in with a nice spicy rye character. There is somewhat of a vinous, white wine character lurking within as well. Quite the lovely aroma.

First sip brings a plethora of fruity, resinous, pungent hops upfront with bold mango and grapefruit flavors. Spicy rye mixes in beautifully. Flows down with a good kick of bitterness that's well placed. Lingering fruity hops on the palate. Delicious!



Mouthfeel is crisp and smooth with perfect carbonation. This one is exceedingly easy to drink and just amazingly enjoyable. A top notch IPA and I love the addition of rye and the Nelson Sauvin hops. Seek it out if you have the ability!

Overall this earns a rating of Amazing.


One of the tastiest IPA's I've sampled!
