7/23/13 Poured from 22oz bottle into pint glass.
A: Cloudy, unfiltered, golden yellow. Really beautiful. Almost looks like a Mimosa.
S: Citrus notes up front, grapefruit. This is my type of IPA. Really fruity. Must come from the Nelson Sauvin Hops.
T: Getting the rye most on the finish. Really fucking tasty. Citrusy, nice hop profile, finishes bitter.
M: Clings to the mouth nicely. Medium to high carbonation. Nice and lively.
This was my first east coast/west coast beer swap and I am extremely pleased. Need to search out more IPA's using this Nelson hop.

This is my second Alpine beer, Pure Hopiness being the first. PH was very good. Let's see if Nelson lives up to the hype. Thanks to Sebowski for the trade.
A: Surprisingly very light looking. Yellow, slightly hazy. Lacing covers the glass. Good head retention. Almost looks like Hop Ranch.
S: Big grapefruit, citrus and guava. Very nice caramel malt base. Quite amazing.
T: Taste follows the aroma. Very big hop profile but it does not overpower the beer. Very balanced beer. This satisfied my hop thirst on every single level.
M: Light to medium bodied. Perfect carbonation and bitterness.
O: After having the pleasure of trying so many delicious, wonderful IPA's in the past few weeks (Gandhi-Bot, PtE, PH, Jai Alai, Schlafly Tasmanian IPA, Sea Hag, Hopslam, etc, etc, etc.), Nelson definitely got my attention. Wonderful beer by Alpine. Glad to have acquired this since I failed at making it to the brewery when I was out in SD. Thanks again to Sebowski.
