Alpine Beer Company’s Nelson

Alpine Beer Company’s Nelson Long a favorite of hopheads, the brews from Alpine in the picturesque mountain hamlet of the same name east of San Diego are at last seeing wider distribution thanks to a partnership between Alpine and Green Flash (the Alpine beers even come in Green Flash 22 oz. bombers).

Since Green Flash is no stranger to hop-forward beers, either, this is no takeover but rather a collaboration of like-minded brewers, and Nelson remains consistent if you had the lucky chance to drink some previously. Named after a particularly sought-after hop from New Zealand, this is a brilliantly bitter brew, rich with grapefruit and piney notes and a lovely dank funk. The kicker is the addition of some rye malts, adding another tasty dimension to this stellar IPA.See
