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.

Pour clear amber, with a small white head. Aroma of pine, apricot, mango (plenty of them tropical fruits going on), slight grass, spruce... Sure is delicious, and reminds me of what a textbook "west-coast" is like. The taste has some faint sweet notes upfront, with a heavy and long bitter, and slightly dry aftertaste. Average bodied, with an semi-fizzy/lively carbonation. Sure is a nice way to end this evening, think Iíll be going to bed shortly after this SOB...

Cult classic IPA here. As the description states IPA means Itís Pretty Awesome. This beer along with Stone IPA really paved the path for what we are seeing today. This beer pours a golden amber color with a beautiful fluffy white head. Aroma is huge floral and citrus bouquet. Taste is sweet pine and tropical fruit notes with a nice even bitterness and malt backbone that compliments it. Top notch San Diego Classic.

Bottle. Actually the description on the bottle, which is pretty much the description on RB nails it completely. Thatís really what itís like. Not sure Iíve ever seen / agreed with one quite so much. Very tasty stuff. I was expecting it to be decent but this was better than hoped. Quintessential US IPA. Will be seeking out more of this.
