4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 22oz, kindly shared by tarjei. It pours an almost clear, golden body under a dense, small, off-white head. Lovely nose with citrusy, slightly peachy hops. Some pine cones too, and with appropriate level of malts. That goes for the flavor too, the malts do their job in the background, providing sweetness and body fullness to cope with the citrusy, resiny and piney hops. Slightly warming too. Fine bitterness in the finish. A pretty awesome, well-balanced IPA. Wonderful. (090508)

Big bottle in Amsterdam. One of the great ones. Nice amber body with huge head. Nose of hops, floral, grassy, pine. Taste of fruits, sweet, hops. Really nice extended release of hops and pine and grapefruit. Very nice finish.

Iíve had some awful ipas/beers and this is polar opposite to them. This is a West Coast ipa to the fullest extent of the law. Absolute grapefruit, pine and citrus bomb on the aroma. Really resinous and dank. Tropical fruits shine through as it warms up as well. Taste is super dry, bitter and full of citrus and more pine and tropical fruit. Really juicy and fresh ipa. I finally found this in Virginia and I donít know if I just got lucky or Alesmith is sending beers out east, but this was an absolute perfect ipa and Iím so pumped I finally go to try it. Will definitely seek this out again. Cheers!

Pours straw with some haziness. White, dense head, some lacing. Nose of fresh cascade hops, dried fruits, and grape. Nice, mellow grapefruit, dried hops on the aroma. Some sweet malts. Somewhat weak finish, but a good IPA.

Pours a really nice golden amber with fluffy white head. Hop aromas are really fresh, grassy, some grapefruit peel, lime, good and piney as well. Has a ridiculously smooth mouthfeel, and a very fruity, sweet, but not clingy flavors, that really slowly evolves into a solid hoppy, lingering finish. 90 minute was my favorite IPA, but this one just might take the crown.
