COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís 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.

Bottle as an aniversary gift from Pix. Pours clear amber with a good thick cream froth. Lovely sweet grapefruit aroma. Instant hit of big swet pine and citrus flavour followed by a nice bitter lingering finish. The alcohol comes through. Very drinkable. Great beer.

Cloudy orange pour, all pine and sweet malts on the nose, powerful hop punch on the palate. Tangerine, plums, tropical fruits, grapefruit vie for top honours with a solid malt base. Top notch IPA. San Diego classic

Everyone takes of the sculpin and stone beers. This is the IPA all should strive for. Killer hop aromas of grass, mango and pine. Flavor is so hoppy throughout not just punch in face hops. Not super bitter just wonderful fresh hops!

Looks really good in the glass with a foamy white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine. Medium bodied with a slight alcohol warming effect. Absolutely gorgeous lacing. This IPA is well balanced and will be my IPA going forward as its easy to get and reasonable priced.

Enjoyed this greatly during a recent beer tasting. It was the highest rated IPA by the whole group, praised for its balance. It has all of the IPA notes that we love but somehow magically puts them all together in an easy to drink form where nothing sticks out.

SinH4 (729) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 11, 2015
This bottle is already a year old. Still, let?s see. Had this once before. Hazy orange color with inch thick white head. Aroma of pines, grapefruit, caramel. Taste is soothingly refreshing and full at the same time, more pines and grapefruits, bitter finish, but extremely pleasant. Very toasty body with hints of honey. Pleasant aftertaste as well. Whoa. I expect no less from Alesmith, but for such an old bottle... Amazing! IPAs don?t get much better than this.

Great taste, even greater smell. Really complex but easy and interesting to drink. You donít want to drink it fast because itís so complex.
