Nelson Brewing Co. – Full Nelson Organic Imperial IPA Review
When your frame of mind is set on the phrase ‘Go Big or Go Home’ it makes sense that you come out with a beer like the Full Nelson. Fully Organic, this Imperial IPA is something for the Nelson Brewing Company to be proud of. Pouring with three fingers of thick head this clear-copper coloured ale smells thick with hops, big malts and a touch of caramel sweetness. The taste is more mellow than expected. Starting off crisp and clean a creamy, smooth mid-section builds on the strong malts. For the finish comes the hop. While nothing is overpowering the bitterness builds at the very end along side some light citrus notes leaving a balanced, English style dry hop finish. For a strong 8.2%alcohol rating this is a very drinkable, balanced and delicious imperial IPA without the boozyness that you may expect. If anything this beer goes down a little too easily and you may pay for it in the morning.
