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.

This is delicious. The light color and frothy white head seem to go with the lighter body feel. The hops are spicy and citrusy with great pine and citrus aromas, and what’s great is they don’t dry out the palate. Flowers, grass, ripe fresh apple, juniper berry. The beer has enough malt support without the malt really getting in the way flavor-wise or becoming sticky. This makes X a total pleasure to drink - easy, but entertainingly complete. Maybe I just got an exceptional bottle, so I will have to research that theory with lots more of ’em...

Cybercat (4985) - Georgia, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Taps hazy golden-amber with a minimal eggshell head. Aroma offers a strong note of resiny hops, more IPA than "regular" pale ale, supported by orange and malty notes. Flavor continues the IPA-like hoppy note but ramps up the malt, while a bit of pear joins the orange in the fruit component. Mouthfeel features fairly firm body and strong, lively fizz. X marks the spot to slake your thirst.

darbeer75 (393) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Aroma: sweet and citrusy; Appearance: golden, clear pour with billowy white head that dissipates slowly; some lacing; Taste: follows nose but is fairly bland; some bite at the end; Palate: light bodied with medium lightly bitter finish; Overall: very drinkable but not my favorite APA. A little disappointed given quality of other Alesmiths.
