COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alpha Supreme is an over-the-top American pale ale brewed to commemorate the 2nd anniversary of New Brew Thursday’s beer webcast. For a special twist, we used a hefty dose of German rye malt to compliment American 2-row and light caramel malt. Alpha Supreme is outrageously hopped with Nelson Sauvin, a new hop variety from New Zealand, as well as Summit, Columbus, and Simcoe from the good old US. For a unique and bold aroma, we dry hopped Alpha Supreme with Nelson Sauvin and Columbus.

Tap at Churchills for SDBW. Pours a clear golden with great lacing. Nose is spot on kumquat and mangosteen- juicy, pithy, bright. Taste is clean, light as hell session APA with juicy passionfruit, sharp grassy balance. Dry, refreshing. Solid session APA offering from Beachwood.

SDalkoholic (2146) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 28, 2013
On tap @ Toronado: Poured a golden blonde with a thin fluffy topping of head. The aroma is dominated by hops and has a metallic smell as if it were a jar full of coins. The drink is extremely bitter with a bold taste of hops that taste as though I just took a bite out of an unripe grapefruit. This comes across as unbalanced and tasting almost like a homebrewed IPA on steroids. Leaves behind too much of a metallic finish for my enjoyment.

AmEricanbrew (5847) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Clear golden color with ivory head. Big grapefruit, pine aromas. Light to medium bodied. Big bitter grapefruit rind, pine needle flavors in a wispy pale male base brew--good hop flavors but not enough malt to balance

On tap at Stone Bistro. Poured a golden orangish pour with thin white head. Aroma was grapefruit and dank floral hops. Taste was very malt forward with a small bite of hops. Good pale ale although I did enjoy the aroma much more than the taste.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Draught @ Toronado SD. Clear golden with a small white head. Nose of rye and citrus rinds. Lots of tropical fruit and grapefruit rind dominates, not much on the malt area other than some rye and a tinge of rye sweetness, which is just fine. Bone dry, bitterness at a 6. Low carbonation with a light body. Tasty.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Tap at Toronado copper gold color. Pine grass aroma. Flavors of bitter dry hops and mild hop back bone. Finishes pretty dry and lean . Great beer and could drink much more.

pantanap (3357) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2011
On tap at toronado... Pours a hazy cidery orange brown hue, smewhat hazy in nature, and then topped with a soapy creamy white head... Somewhat dank and crisp vibrant tropical fruit hoppiness. Somewhat lively and dank and very well much fresh. Comes to life after a bit of warming. Very citrusy in nature....flavors are crisp with juicy yet dry tropical fruit based hoppiness. Incredibly dry in the middle and well on through the finish. Tasty and entirely drinkable. One of my favorites of the day.

Clear golden orange with a finger of white head. Heavy orange and citrus peel aromas with pine and floral hop notes. A light herbal note with some pale malt base. Strong hop flavor and a decent bitterness. Citrus peel and pine flavor.

Clear gold pour, nice white head. Great clean hop aroma, some citrus, grass, and a perfect amount of sweet malt in the nose. Love the clean hops flavor, not overly bitter but a spectacular version of an APA. Great hops presence with a superb malt balance.
