New Belgium Brewing and Alpine Beer‘s collaboration, Super IPA, is returning as a Hop Kitchen Series release, but this time available on draft only. Originally released in August of 2012, it was super popular because it was a super tasty IPA that begged to be brought back. The only surprise is that it has taken this long and will only be on draft. Still, good news is good news.
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.
