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.

Woo doggie, this is one awesome IPA - Floral hops and sweet candy in the aroma - golden with a slight copper tint, decent lacework - BAM, extreme yet balanced attack of hops and malty sweetness on the palate - apricots, citrus (grapefruit) - tingly carbonation - some pine in the mix - a world-class 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 (11120) - 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).

ignorant (102) - madrid, SPAIN - AUG 29, 2016
golden amber lens with high vividness creating a lather white. outstanding aroma, which floods with citrus shades (grapefruit, orange, shells), pineapple, resin, pine and some candy and cereal. On the palate we have the same citrus shades (tangerine), resinous aroma but that comes with a moderate sweetness of roasted malts. Something spicy. The final drink is long and dry, with a marked bitterness which melts between effervescence and pleasant citrus and resinous flavors that create an unforgettable experience. Medium bodied and very creamy.

LearninBeer (480) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2016
The aroma is hops, citrus, spruce. Pours a orange/copper with big off-white head mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter. An excellent beer!

Flaske 660ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsdalen. Drukket på Lillehøgda 11 Aug 16. Gylden. Litt uklar. Pent luftig skum som varer. Heftig & god ferskenaroma. Smaken tørket aprikos. Lett syrlig etter hvert. En god del bunnfall & gjørmete siste kvelling. Utmerket øl.
