A: Citrusy, grape like aroma with a bit of malt in the background.

A: Golden color, very clear with a thick white head that slowly recedes. Some lacing in the glass.

T: Citrusy, grape hop flavors, coupled with some pale malt support. Moderately juicy with very little bitterness.

M: Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Very tasty; the beer’s citrusy, grapey hop character is delicious, and makes for very easy drinking.

On tap during Beachwood LB's 3rd Anniversary event.

A: Pours a clear yellowish orange with a solid half-inch thick white head which fades yielding splotches and spots of lace.

N: Juicy citrus and weedy dankness.

T: Citrus shines along with a dank note. Impressive flavors for a pale ale.

M: Semi-moderate body and medium carbonation. Dry, bitter finish.

O: Really enjoyed and easy to drink. So flavorful.

On tap at the pub – Long Beach, CA
Notes taken from 06/03/14 – Full Pint

A: Lightly burnished golden amber color with evident hop haze. Nice finger width of ivory cream settles over holding together quite well and compacted. A few splotchy dots and swaths of lace tag the glass after each sip.

S: Smells of grapefruit zest with a touch of mild herbal cattiness and some freshly juiced white wine grapes. There is some underlying pale malt bread crust there but the Nelson hops are quite expressive. Has me really excited for this one.

T: The taste delivers very much the same with zesty grapefruit and lots of Sauvignon grape qualities. Has a musky herb element to it which I rather like and a solid base of bready pale malts. Alcohol is below the radar here. Just loving the super juicy Nelson tastiness from this one with a balanced low to moderate actual bitterness. This is quite good with a dry resinous finish and a weedy herbal note on the back end.

M: Moderate to lightly filling body. Nice creamy sensation with some lower perceived bitterness. Good drying efforts in the finish with a touch of resinous linger on it.

D: Alpha Supreme is Supremely crushable. I do love me some Nelsons and if you do as well this one is worth checking out. A bit lighter than Alpine I would say with more bready malt influence to it but so delicious and well balanced. Doesn’t slam you with the bitters yet still brings the Nelson flavs.
