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.

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.

wow. seldom does a single IPA offer so much complexity. The hops are really well balanced and donít show overwhelmingly on either the citrus or evergreen side. the only thing not perfect on this is the aroma. If it had a stronger nose it would be ideal.

Citrus pine aromas. Mostly clear tan color, nice frothy head. Smooth the bitter parts are there but the remain in control. Dry lasting mild bitterness left behind.

Pure perfect hops. Smells pines and hops. A medium body and good carbonation. Strong and lasting bitter palate. Tastes hops and pines with a little fruity finish. A complete IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Panzuriel (1384) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Alesmith IPA purchased at Jungle Jimís in Fairfield Ohio. This is a hazy apricot golden beer with a firm head of small white bubbles. Carbonation is lively. Nose is a good amount of sharp evergreen hops. Taste is initially quite dry with a bit of pine needle and a large amount of grapefruit citrus on the back end. body is just a bit lively. finishes clean with just a smidge of bitters. a very very nice IPA

Bottle from Saveur BiŤre from Dec 2014 and I suspect it has lost a bit of its carbonation. Grapefruit & pineapple aroma. Thick foamy head with a clear amber appearance. Extremely bitter with a sour and bitter after taste of grapefruit & lemongrass.

Aroma of sweet citrus and caramel. Thick mouth feel. Taste of more bitter caramel. Not so much pine and citrus. Some floral earthiness. Tad unbalanced leaning towards the bitter side.
