COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

22 oz bottle. Served in a snifter. Pours a deep honey color with a two-finger head. Floral and citrus aromas upfront. In regards to taste, the surprise here is the balance. To call an IPA "smooth" may be odd, but it’s the most accurate deScriptor I can think of in this case. The hop presence is there, but it isn’t overbearing and doesn’t linger. Floral finish. This IPA would accompany many foods well, as I imagine it would bring out flavors, not dominate them.

Studoffsky (39) - POLAND - APR 17, 2016
Z kranu w Czeskiej Baszcie (!). Niezwykły, bardzo intensywny aromat z wyczuwalną nutą loukoumi. W smaku - synteza wszystkiego co najlepsze w amerykańskich chmielach: żywica, grejpfrut, mango i papaja. Pełne ale nie ciężkie. Pod koniec pokazuje wspaniałą podbudowę słodową (świeży ciemny chleb, herbatniki). Majstersztyk z Zachodniego Wybrzeża.

Niedawno zmierzyłem się z tym piwem. Nie sądziłem, że to jest aż taka legenda, niemniej spróbuje podejść do niego obiektywnie. Pisane z pamięci ETYKIETA: pełen minimalizm, który lubię. Ocena na plus. ZAPACH: uderzająco chmielowy. Jak ekstrakt ziołowo-żywiczne. Bardzo charakterystyczny, w żadnym innym piwie nie spotkałem się jeszcze z taką intensywnością. Od razu wzbudziło to moje zainteresowanie. Na plus PIANA: drobnopęcherzykowa, opada powoli. Na plus. SMAK: potężne uderzenie chmielu. Pierwszy raz spotkałem się z piwem które było tak skoncentrowane na nutach ziołowo-żywicznyo-trawiastych. Niemal czułem się tak jakbym przyssał się do jakiejś sosny i spijał żywice :D. Wysycenie średnie. Delikatny alkohol, wpasowujący się do całości. Na plus. Delikatna słodycz, smak syropu na kaszel czy nalewki ziołowej. Całość zbalansowana acz niesamowicie intensywna. OCENA: pozytywna. Jednak rozumiem, że piwo może nie smakować, jeżeli ktoś nie jest gotowy na takie chmielowe uderzenie. Sam nie jestem jakimś wielkim fanem więc nie będę się szykować na kolejną butle. Niemniej przeżycie warte sporej ceny.

drjoeng (619) - SINGAPORE - APR 2, 2016
7.25%ABV.  IPA. Poured out deep gold. 10şSRM. Nose has pine, magnolias, and toasted malt sweetness. Mouthfeel is soapy.  Palate is graham cracker with honey,  There is a bit of a curious almost "fishy" pop which then disappears to slide into malty, hoppy finish land.  Hops are bitter melon, oily, resinous, nice  floral flavor notes of magnolias, freesias, carnations.  Goes on Favorites List!

Tap at Public House. Dark amber with a thin white cap and medium lacing. Clover honey, apricot, light floral quality, black pepper and resiny. Medium sweetness cut by a spicy, floral bitter finish. Lighter medium body with a watery feel.

AnG_BrgNor (314) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2016
0,65 L Bottle. Clear golden with a lasting head. Aroma of pine, citrus and tropical. Taste is citrus, tropical and caramalt. Its bitter and even if the caramalt is there its still on the bitter side (as IPAs should). A very good IPA. Just as I hoped its not overrated.

rentonj7 (140) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Medium amber with some suspended particles. Aroma is big fruit cocktail, blood orange and tangerines, mango. Sweet malt backbone, big citrus, pine, grapefruit in mouth not nose. Very refreshing. Long developing finish with drying giving to last bits of carbonation. Wow.

Eructoblaster (3601) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2016
Bottle - 12oz. Beautiful hazy amber body with a thin, off-white frothy head. Awesome, well balanced hoppy aroma with malty, mango, melon, and some subtle butterscotch hints. Its sharp, robust hoppy taste carries malty, woody, citrusy, and grainy notes. Ends with a long, moderately warming, bitter finish. Fantastic IPA.

Clear dark yellow with white head. Nose is citrus, pine, and tropical fruit all combined over a caramel body. Sweet, perhaps overtly so. Bitter with abovementioned tastes. Medium body and slick palate. An excellent IPA.
