COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AleSmith dialed in the recipe resulting in an extremely drinkable 6% ABV Pale Ale with light bitterness and accentuated hoppiness designed to fill the gap between AleSmith X Extra Pale Ale and AleSmith IPA. This San Diego Pale Ale will showcase abundant piney and citrusy hop aroma and flavor from an intense dry-hopping schedule. A balanced malt profile will round out these hoppy flavors with a biscuity finish to enhance drinkability throughout the innings.

The name “394” (.394) references the highest single-season batting average Gwynn set back in 1994. Ready to be released at the June 6th Padres Beerfest, San Diego Pale Ale 394 will reflect the commitment to excellence shared by the legendary Tony Gwynn and the AleSmith team.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2015 Bottle. Orange amber, big head and lacing. Wow! The most tropical fruit juice flavor and aroma ever in a light bodied pale ale. Absolutely awesome. Pineapple, mango, passion fruit, etc. all coming in individual waves of flavor. Refreshing and delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear dark gold/copper with a thick off white head. Aroma is dank with tropical fruit and citrus notes. Taste has tons of fruit. Pineapple, mango, passion fruit, lemon, lime and orange. Super juicy and fresh. Medium slick mouthfeel and relatively light carb. This is unbelievable.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some pale and caramel malts, and some light dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent pale ale but not that great.

Bottle shared by Tom - thanks! Orange pour with a white head. Tropical, some sweet berry, hint of pine - just a hint. Not bitter on the tongue really at all. Really good.
