All Grain Single-Hopped Session Style IPA Recipe

Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a Rye IPA brewed with New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops, similar to Alpine Beer’s Nelson. Medium-bodied with aromas and flavors of fresh crushed gooseberries, white wine grapes, and fruit. The malt bill uses a portion of Rye Malt which adds a touch of malty spice. High hop bitterness in the finish.
