Big thanks go out to ehammond1 for sending this!
a: murky dark orange body with a slow and steady rise of bubbles from the botton. head is dirty white and stands a half inch tall leaving a nice spider web of lacing as this beer goes down all too quick.
s: nice and mello nose to this one. aromas of grapefruit, spice, rye and a little caramel blend nicely.
t: wowza! this is incredibly good. burst of grapefruit up front is nicely smoothed over by the rye.
m: nice carbonation level. the rye gives this a med-full body. little dry and bitter on the finish but is amazingly well balanced.
o: awesome! i grew up stealing sips of rye whiskey from granddad and have had a love for rye ever since. this beer fills that need very well. so smooth and drinkable! can't get over how awesome this beer is. if you havent had it, you need to.

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.
