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.

pours a light orange amber with a thick white head that has great retention. Aroma has lots of tropical fruits and toasted malts. Flavor is much the same with a nice resinous back end. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Lasting dry finish. This beer is good but IMO a little overrated.

Fine IPA with light aroma. Balanced with average hop bitterness. Absolutely no better than fresher MI IPAs!

superspak (4566) - Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2016
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/10/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Awesome appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Incredible aromas with awesome complexity and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, lemon/orange rind, pine, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal astringent hop flavors lingering after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and fairly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an insane IPA! All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A highly amazing offering.

IPAgutten79 (913) - Skui, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2016 Gylden med medium høyt hvitt skum. Mildt grapefrukt og sitrus i aromaen. I smaken er det sitrus, noe tropisk frukt og furu samt malt. Fin/behagelig bitterhet til tross for at flasken ble brygget i slutten av januar. Smakene føles velbalansert og harmonerer bra med hverandre. God grapefruktbitterhet i ettersmaken. Medium konsistens.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle, cloudy gold with a small off-white head. Aroma is pine and grapefruit. Nicely bitter with just a little bit of sweetness coming through, medium body, fresh and clean on the palate. Very fine, light lacing on the glass.

Bottle from Flask at home. Pours hazy amber with white head. Immense aroma of hops, some pine, and some fruit. Taste is delightfully hoppy and bitter with an earthy quality to it. Perhaps some grapefruit and pine to the taste. Truly astonishing.
