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.

Pours a darkened gold, or light amber, depending on how you look at it. Pillowy and frothy, off-white head. Strong retention and tons of sticky lace. Light pine and lemon aroma. Resiny pine, lemon oil, and mild floral flavor notes. Solid body....grains are not very evident but round out this brew nicely. Very crisp, clean, and enticing. Finishes dry and mildly bitter. Solid Westy.

Golden appearance with lots of foamy head. Complex tastes of citrus, tangerine, grapefruit and spruce. Medium-heavy body, good carbonation and a lasting lasting finish of bitter tangerine. Itís pretty awesome

New 12oz bottles at 14.99 a 6 pack. Pours golden/Amber with tight 1/2 inch head that laces nicely. Aroma of pine and dank hops with a malty bread aroma. Flavor is bursting with pine and resin. Soapy, sticky texture, but crisp, bitter and dry. Damn good regular ipa. Stone ruination, classic style west coast shit. Yum!

Aaahhh! Nothing like a fresh IPA! The bottle in front of me, that I bought from the supernaturally efficient Norwegian wine monopoly a couple of weeks ago, was bottled 24. April 2014. 24th of April last year! Thatís more than 1.5 years ago! I realise that itís a long way from San Diego to Oslo, but this is ridiculous! So, not surprisingly, the aroma is not as hoppy as Iíd hoped for. However, the aroma is actually quite inviting, and I get intriguing DIPA-like notes of overripe tropical fruits and sweet caramel. Pretty strong flavour of overripe grapefruit, ditto tropical fruits, especially peach, some pine and lots of caramel. The taste is light to moderate sweet and the long-lasting finish is moderate+ bitter. Mid-bodied, dry and with a moderate carbonation. I actually enjoyed this one very much, despite its old age. Tastes like a moderately hopped DIPA.
[65.5 cl bottle, enjoyed 1 year 7 months after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Online]

Tap @ Mekong. Dark golden with ample head and lacing. I get a perfumy nose plus some light pine. Flavor is a little tropical and antiseptic then bitter. The deScription sounded wonderful, but Iím not getting all of that.
