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.

hrking (140) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 10, 2009
22oz. bomber from the Dilly Deli in Cincinnati. I have had many steller IPAs and to put this one on top is not even close. There are so many great offerings out there that impress me and this one was just average. Maybe if I had a fresh one I would change my mind but it just didnt stack up. Nice floral nose but hops were subdued. This did have a nice sweetness with a smoothness to it that made it easy to drink but I have had better and rate this no more than average...

elihapa (1547) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Bomber, from BevMo for $4.99. Given my affection for IPAs, I was fittingly excited to get to try this one. Pours orange and gold with a large white head. Is it just me or do many of Alesmith’s Pale Ales pour with similarly large head? Palate was smooth, with light carbonation that showcases the hoppy character of this beer. Flavor features grapefruit, resin, lemon, and tangerine. Finish is deliciously long, bitter, and spicy. There are a lot of good West Coast IPA’s, but this one is certainly at or near the very top.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2010 The highest rated IPA in the galaxy - oh, my, I almost didn’t dare open it! Well, off the cap went anyway revealing a... quite pale yellowish colour. It isn’t for it’s glamourous looks it has got its reputation, I gathered. The aroma is however grand: full of citric hops and wet grass. The flavour is likewise nearly perfect with notes of pine and grape on a caramel oily background. The best of the best? I don’t know, but it’s definately in the neighbourhood.

Mette (224) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2009
Uklar lys ravfarvet med et flot hvidt skum. Dufter af grapefrugt, citrus, sæbe, græs og noget ananas. Smager af lakrids, græs, citrus, peber og lidt gær. God lang eftersmag, vel humlet. En øl tæt på min personlighed. Lækker, spænstig og dejlig........
