I've been searching all the usual big U.S. online bike stores and yet to find anyone with Alfine internally geared hub available. Is this a seasonal thing or am I just not looking in the right place?

Have you tried Harris Cycle?
They say the have them in stock.
If you don't need the Alfine's disc brake mount, the Nexus SG-8R36 has an identical internal mechanism and is usually ~20% less expensive.
Harris still has 36H in silver and black. Last year Shimano ran out in the US, I expect they'll run out again this year.
