Half Nelson IPA HomeBrew Recipe
All Grain Single-Hopped Session Style IPA Recipe
Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a low ABV IPA, packed with the hop flavors of Nelson Sauvin hops, from New Zealand. Medium-light bodied with aromas and flavors of fresh crushed gooseberries, white wine grapes, and mild spice. The malt bill uses a portion of Rye Malt which adds a touch of malty spice. Bitterness is moderate, but hop flavor is very high. The beer is also dry-hopped with Nelson Sauvin.
