Poured a dark straw with a white creamy head. Lots of lacing the whole way down the glass.
Smells strongly of tropical fruits mostly pineapple, same as most beers with Nelson hops I've had.
Taste is about like the smell with loads of tropical fruits hitting you at first. Finishes with a slightly spicy finish due to the rye with medium hop bitterness throughout. Good flavor but seemed to be lacking something I can't quite put my finger on.
Carbonation and body are both about average for the style.
By far the best of the (albeit limited) beers I've had with this hop. Everything from Alpine is solid.
Serving type: on-tap
