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.

Clear, bright light orange body and a big, soapy, bright white head. Clean malt and lemony hops dominate, with very light and drying resinous aftertastes and just a hint of alcohol near room temperature. Light and clean palate that does not overwhelm given all of the flavor this beer possesses. Usually, my palate is saturated by overwhelming pale ales, but this APA is one that I can have several of and walk away with a fairly clean palate, even going back to lighter styles like a kolsch or pils.
