COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This refreshing, light-golden Extra Pale Ale embodies drinkability. AleSmith X pushes the limits by offering a level of flavor not often found in this classic style. Fresh American hops are abundant but carefully balanced by a light, crisp body and smooth bitterness. Notes of citrus and pine combine with a delicate malt sweetness to create a flavorful drinking experience.

jstraw (1946) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2008
Straw with good, foamy white head / Big, fresh pine nose with faint citrus undertone / LIght body, watery, with sharp hops and good finish / Flavors of fresh pine with undertones of pineapple and with dry, herbasceous finish / Needs just a little more oomph to the body.

JorisPPattyn (8562) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2008
Draught Pale gold, small white head. Fresh hops, nose of grapefruit and fresh dates, very perfumey. Bitter, slightly metallic flavour, lots of different fruity notes. Medium bodied, refreshing. Very refreshing (if served too cold), not to overly hopped, balance is there.

draft, golden color, very smooth hoppy bite with an excellent body and finish, I thought this was very well done

Not much doing here. Light IPA nose and flavor.Sweet citrusy hopiness that just seems weak overall.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 16, 2008
2007 Bottle - Pours a dark golden with a light white head. Aroma is pine, tast is pure grapefruit and hops. Uber-citrus, mango bitter hop finale. Good beer, but lots are, and it’s pretty middle of the road...

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2008
750ml from JW77. Huge bright hoppy aroma. Grapefruit, tangerine, pine sap, biscuity malt. Very bright and fresh aroma. Quite refreshing. Pours bright, slightly hazy gold with a bright, frothy white head. Floral, soapy, citrus zest, pine, tart lemon with a decent biscuit malt backbone. Medium bodied with a slightly waxy texture. Not my favorite style, but a very well done APA for sure.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2008
22 oz bottle. Poured a hazy medium orange color. Very effervescent right out of the bottle; the head erupted over the glass as I poured it. Too much carbonation. The aroma was pleasant, resembling flower blossom, light fruity candy, and subdued pear. Very bubbly on the tongue at first. This improved to some degree after I let the beer breathe a while. The flavor was hop dominated with flowery, sprucy, and grassy notes. There were also pear and fennel-like notes. Delicately sweet and light bodied with only mild hop bitterness. Good pale.

Suttree (5579) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 23, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 I have American Pale Ale listed as favorite style. Not because I like every one I drink, but because when it hits, it usually is my favorite drinking experience. I like ’em a little thin and quenching, unbalanced toward hops, and preferably a low enough abv that I can drink several if the mood strikes. This fits the bill almost to a T. Really nice, I could drink a bunch of this if I could get it in my area. Thanks to fordest for the trade!
