Pours slightly hazy gold with white head. Aroma is very rich floral and citrus, smells awesome. Rich caramel malt body, lots of spiciness. Lots of floral and citrus hops, grapefruit and orange and all sorts of fruitiness. Pretty great IIPA.

Wonderful. Unexpectedly wonderful. I never know what to expected by these special series brews. But alesmith is always solid so i took a shot. Wonderfully balanced. Floral, and sweet citrus aroma. Smooth sweet start. Nice malt backbone. Then BAM! Bitter piney bite rounds it out. Really good. I am a hop snob and ipas are my beer of choice, especially summer months. This stands up to some of the very best. Nicely done Alesmith. Nicely done...

From bottle to tulip and enjoyed exactly at the summer solstice. Massive amounts of citrus flow out of the glass with spice and stone in strong support. Pours a clear honey-orange with a white head that leaves a small blanket across the top of the beer. Taste is mainly citrus with a strong malt backbone with cracker in support. Bitterness is very high, but the alcohol and malt balance it nicely so that it is not cloying. Finishes dry with astringent puckering in a nice manner. Welcome to Summer!!

Once again, I am so happy I can buy AleSmith beers right here in North central Illinios. Golden yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is fruity hops. Taste is very hoppy and very tasty. Nice spicy hop aftertaste. Nice lacing. A very enjoyable drinking experience.
