Nothing common here, just great beer! “Commonly” consumed in California’s early gold rush days when those old wood kegs would literally burst from the pressure of the beer, leading to the nickname Steam Beer. Super Nova is ruby-gold with a refreshingly smooth sweetness that’s complimented by an All-American crisp hop finish.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2015 Supernova seems to want to taste like a California Common but its hoppiness is more indicative of an American Pale Ale. That works for me! I like the spicy, herbal notes of the hops. Carbonation is lively but also a bit harsh. Not Empyrean’s very best but it’s worth having.

triplehopped (64) - - AUG 17, 2013
Pours a cloudy, pale gold with a medium white head that dissipates moderately fast with little to no lacing. A hint of citrusy hops combined with the aromas of grain malt makes for a sweet, malty aroma. Lively carbonation and light body, sits smooth and finishes clean. Medium sweet and light bitter taste. Overall, a fair balance of hops and malt (leaning on the hops) making for a satisfying brew.

RSRIZZO (1949) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a Lager Glass at 49°. Color is a slightly hazy gold with very good carbonation and a fluffy white head. Aroma is very light with a bit of corn and a sour note coming through. It has a lighter body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor comes in with a lightly sweet corn or grain like taste, a touch of lemon zest and a bit of hop spice. In the after taste a gentle bitterness shows leaving an almost dry feel behind. Overall it’s a nice little brew just not all that exciting.

12oz bottle 1/16/13 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-49° in Lager Glass-Pours a hazy golden with a nice loose white head. Aroma of slight citrus, grain, and hay. Taste of citrus, grain, and hay. This light bodied brew would be a great lawnmower on a hot day kinda brew.

This an okay summer beer. Somewhat heavy on the palate with a nice citrus flavor and a mild bready aroma.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Pours a lightly hazed orange with a thin bright white head. Aroma is bread, fruity yeast, toast, light cereal notes and spicy and citrus hops. Flavor is toast, burnt orange, light floral hops, honey, crusty bread, cereal grain, sweet malt and lemon oil. Palate is medium bodied, with a moderate, but sharp carbonation and slightly oily feel. Pretty nice overall, surprisingly hoppy for the style, would be better with a lighter feel.
