New Belgium Brewing and San Diego’s Alpine Beer Co. have come together once again for the love of IPAs. It’s a rare second visit for a New Belgium Hop Kitchen beer but this collaboration with Alpine Beer, first released in August of 2012, just begged for another round.
At nine percent ABV and 99 IBUs, Super IPA is bursting with Amarillo, Columbus, Simcoe and Centennial hops, bringing the bitter all the way to the front and back again. Specialty malts create a nice balance, but the tropical and citrus tones of the American hops undeniably dominate. Super IPA pours a sheened copper and a bright, white head floats atop.
“Super IPA is a beloved beer and we had a great time collaborating with Alpine Beer Co.,” said Matty “Smooth” Gilliland of New Belgium Brewing. “It’s a rare and special occasion for us to get to collaborate twice with the same brewery, but Super IPA was one of those beers we just couldn’t put to rest.”
Super IPA is available on draft. Pricing varies by location.
