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.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 22 oz bottle. Pours light orangish amber with very thick fluffy head. Aroma is fresh juicy grapefruit hops. Hints of sweetness and pine. Taste is smooth creamy mild caramel malt with those sweet citrusy hops on the finish. Incredibly restrained bitterness, almost separate from the hops, but comes on at the finish and lingers well. Easily among the smoothest, best balanced IPAs Iíve ever had - simply no harsh notes. 7/2/13: on nitro @ the brewery. Super creamy mouthfeel, as expected. Hop notes seem a bit more punchy - maybe they just stand out more when paired with the smoother body? Still outstanding, amazing to get this much flavor without the alcohol or sweetness of a DIPA.

Tap at brewery in San Diego. Light copper with white head. Smells piney and crisp. Very long hold on the nice hop flavor before it shifts to drying bitterness. One of the longest lasting best finishing ipas Iíve had. Excellent.

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.

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.
