3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a clear effervescent golden with a large fizzy white head which left a sparse lacing on the glass. Clean, though mild, hop aroma with a touch of lemon. Taste is very smooth light, crisp hops with a thin malt backbone. Good body. Overall, this beer struck me as well-crafted but surprisingly light in flavor. "When Alesmith brews a beer, they donít fool around," so says Liquid Solutions owner Matt Maples... However, it was clear he wasnít talking about Alesmith X. Couldíve been a lot fuller. Good for what the brewer intended, but seemed unambitious.

Bottle. Hazy amber with a big off-white head. Citrus hop aroma with some sweet malt underneath. Balanced malt/hop flavor - citrus hops with some chocolate/caramel malt flavors. Lighter bodied and easy drinking.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy of Pailhead. Golden in color with big off-white head, made of tiny bubbles. Nice hop aroma citrus, pine and floral all blended together. Flavor has initial malt sweetness to it but finishes all hops with a slightly skunky kick. Tastes a little musty. Nice APA just not my style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the bomber this pours a cloudy light yellow/orange, this might have been a bit shaken up, but i donít know if itís bottle conditioned or not. Massive citrus hops in the aroma. The sweet malt up front didnít last long against the hops, quickly overtaken and finishes like a big ol hoppy pale should.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice large head of rather big bubbles. Nice ring lacing as it reduces. Light carbonation. Nice sweet fruity aroma with peaches a bit of citrus and a decent helping of hops. Color is a medium gold. Plenty of hops in the flavor with a hint of roastyness in the background. More citrus and a somewhat dry palate. Pretty well balanced. A bit of fruit pokes through at the finish. A very good pale ale and a great example of the style.

A very good APA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden hay color body with a giant fluffy white head. Nice lemony hop nose. Light citrus hop flavor with a little maple amd nuts followed by a little hop bitterness. A bit on the bland side for an american pale ale.
