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.

Aroma is pleasant but not memorable-appearance is golden and bordering on amber-clean piny and citrus hop up front not much malt sweetness-medium palate followed nicely by lingering bitter finish-very good IPA? yes--the best? I think not

This is a fantastic IPA. Right up there with Pliny in my opinion. Smooth with notes of tropical fruit.

Hopmaestro (1318) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2016
Aroma is very much leaning towards the malt here and I catch a lot of dried red fruits. Subtle hops, with a slight grassy touch and lemon zest. Taste is round and smooth with caramelly malt flavors and toffee. The hops brings some bite to it, but it’s too laidback and gentle for my taste buds nowadays. Well balanced and more or less an easy drinking IPA - but it’s not what I seek first and foremost nowadays.

AdolfoCC (182) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - OCT 13, 2016
Lata de 12oz, servida en un Spiegelau IPA, un mes de haber sido enlatada. APARIENCIA: de color ámbar con algunos destellos naranjas a contraluz, se observa ligeramente turbia y una mediana actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color blanco, copiosa y de buena retención, de burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas. AROMA: muy frutal, notas a mango, piña, durazno, ligeramente cítrica como cáscara de toronja y un dulzor de las maltas que llegan inclusive a notas a caramelo. Conforme toma temperatura ambiente se hacen más presentes notas herbales como de pino y resina. SABOR: de entrada un amargor medio seguido de los lúpulos usados de carácter herbal con notas a pino, resina, algo de dankness y eso lo que predomina, atrás de eso notas frutales y cítricas, algo de piña, mango, durazno, cáscara de toronja pero en menor medida y un dulzor de las maltas que apenas está presente para balancear lo anterior. En el retrogusto queda un amargor medio alto, seco y que queda pegado al paladar. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero con sensación oleosa en boca, mediana carbonatación. RESUMEN: excelente cerveza

12 oz bottle: Dark golden color. Sweet dank hop aroma, spicy citrus and resin. Palate is on the dry side with a pronounced bitterness.

Tapped at the source. Super hazy golden red orange color. Thick soapy head. Fantastic balanced aroma of tangerines, oranges, green tea, floral bitter hops. Taste mirrors the aroma plus dry floral hops finish. Super pleasant hops, nothing aggressive. Perfectly balanced. Overall excellent!

Hazy orange color. Nice creamy head. Balanced hop and malt aromas of caramels, pine, coriander seeds, citrus fruits, mint. Surprisingly malty flavor, combined with a deep hop resiny bitterness that lasts long on the tongue. Really rich flavor. So well layered. A superior IPA.

Orange aroma. Big pillowy head that takes a long time to dissipate. Piney flavors come to the forefront but orange sweetness still present. Maybe a bit too thin in the body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chalk this one up as one of the best IPAs of all time. The balance of malt to hoppiness is down to a near exact science. Creamy, dense white head sitting pretty on a pristine gold colored appearance. The aroma is grapefruit with soft tropical fruit in the background. A delicious and juicy IPA that I will come back for more and more and more...and more.

Orangish pour, small head, slight haze. Aroma is citrus, caramel, jasmine. Flavor is grapefruit rind, bready caramel backbone with strong resin follow up. Very long bitter finish. Solid IPA.

Rune (11365) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2016
660ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes. Pearl white head resting over a hazy orange coloured body. Crocheted lacing. Ripe citrus taste with a slight touch of caramel sweetness. Sappy taste profile of citrus, pine and moderate malty sweetness. A lingering bitter aftertaste of resin and citrus peels. Well bodied. Smooth in the mouth. Drinking pleasure, indeed (Shared with friends, Prestvika, Sommarøy 02.09.2016).
