Perfectly executed golden rye ipa that showcases how tasty Nelson Sauvin can be. The rye really is the kicker that balances out the sweetness of the hop and malt profile. Top 5 beer for sure.

Nice and the perfumeis unique. The body is not that of the duet so less malt. Cleaner but not as robust. Funky in a good way

Thanks ericteusink for hooking this one up. Only my second Alpine beer. High bitterness of grapefruit, orange, hint of tropical, solid malt base, bits of pine as well. Very nice.

Hazy golden with a thin sticky white cap. Lovely nose full of Nelson Sauvign hoppy tropical juicy tones with a kiss of the and loads of mango and melon. Loads of melon and mango and papaya and a bit of juicy piney bitterness. There’s a bit of resin toward the back but overall very tropical and sweet and just the right bitterness.

On tap at bier thirty. Pours out a hazy golden topped with a sand head. Nose is mango along with mix of other tropical fruit citrus and a rich malt. Taste is more of the mango citrus tropical fruit tons of Nelson and a nice malt balance.
