COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s Pretty Awesome. A San Diego classic, AleSmith IPA showcases the versatility of American hops. Aromas of grapefruit and tangerine lead into an abundance of fresh pine and tropical fruit notes followed by a crisp, resinous bitterness. The complex hop profile is supported by a firm malt presence to create an incredibly flavorful and well-balanced IPA.

Yellowish-amber color with a frothy two finger white head. Strong floral and piney hop aroma with a whiff of caramel. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Big hop flavors dominate the first taste of this brew . A smooth , sweet caramel flavor makes a brief appearance only to be snuffed out by a big, hop garden taste to finish. A great IPA here.Jan 2006

22 oz. bottle. One of the more fragrant IPAs. The taste is fresh and bitter, strong but not challengingly so. A refreshing aside from the IPA arms race.

Pours a deep gold colored beer, with a one finger head and lacing all the way down. Smells of citrus, grapefruit, hops. Tastes of citrus and hops, nice balance. A pretty strong amount of carbonation with a bitter finish.

steview (1036) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 4, 2008
well-balanced, solid IPA; nice, light copper body with light brown, eggshell head that is tight and revealingly lacy; sweet yet hoppy and dry... smooth and well; i just want more...

Thanks to xnoxhatex for sharing this one on NYE 07. Pours a clear orange/yellow with a white head that lasts the glass down. Fresh nose. Pine, citrus, grapefruit with caramel notes coming through. Tastes similar. Fresh hops balanced well with the malts. All the standards that you want in a fresh IPA. Nicely done.

WOOO can you say hops! This beer is packed with them. Very nice golden hue with a thin lacey head. Beer is just absolutely packed with hops. An excellent brew!

Pours a cloudy copper with a gynormous frothy head that lasts forever. Laces throughout the entire beer and looks delicious. Smells are abundant. Hoppy but not a slap in the face. Sweet malt, caramel, fruit, rind, pine. Tastes exactly as it smells, exquisite and complex, all covered in hops. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with low carbonation. A session beer for sure. Love how this is an obvious IPA but is so complex and different at the same time. A classic.

DietPepsican (1527) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a thick but small white head. Aroma of heavy citrus and hops. Flavor is piney hops, grapefruit, orange and a bit of malt. Little flashes of sweet fruit as well. Finishes bitter yet very smooth. Everything really mixes well in this. Very complex without too much of anything overpowering, yet it is bursting with flavor. Wow.

From a 22-oz. bottle--Poured a light amber hue with a thick white head. Nose of thick, sticky, floral, piny, fruity hops. Big and bold as hell. This is what IPAs are all about. Finished bitter and piquant. Love it!
