Very tastey beer. Needs to be drank very cold or the alcohol taste is overwelming. Watch out this stuff will knock you on your ass. Tough to discribe taste,Kind of flowery with a thick fruity taste.

Always wanted to try the summer yulesmith. Now that I can get it by this name, it seemed like it would be just another IIPA, but it is better. Appearance is clear, gold, fluffy head, thick retention. Nose is mild tropical and floral. Mouthfeel is soft, lush, low carb feel, and very melony taste which seemed unusual. Then a nice hop dryness. Very well done.

Barwa jasnożółta. Obfity, biały kożuch piany, który długo się utrzymuje i ładne oblepia szkło. Intensywny aromat cytrusów - pomarańcza i grejpfrut na pierwszym planie, lekko z tyłu cytryna, delikatny ananas. W smaku pojawia się owocowa słodycz, jest brzoskwinia, pomarańcza. Zaraz po tym daje o sobie znać solidna goryczka. Mimo swojej intensywności jest przyjemna, przypomina skórkę pomarańczy czy grejpfruta. Ani trochę nie zalega. Alkohol praktycznie nie istnieje. Wysycenie jest dość wysokie. Piwo jest bardzo pijalne, orzeźwiające, mega owocowe

Almost clear amber pour with a dense white head. Sticky lacing. Strong citrus rind, pine, and dank aroma. Taste is citrus zest, grapefruit, dank, pine, and some toffee sweetness. Firm bitterness but not overpowering. Medium sticky body. ABV is completely hidden. Very easy drinking.

Darwenus (889) - Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2016
This is a tasty, dank, west-coast style IPA that I really enjoyed. It pours hazy yellow with head that hangs around for a while and a lot of carbonation. This beer has that classic big-hop stank all over it with a little bit of buttery malt, and the flavor is that in spades. Plus, some sweet fruity notes, peaches, maybe mango too. The carbonation dominates the mouth feel, which doesn’t bother me. Alesmith Double IPA is eally tasty. I’m digging this.

martjoobolut (3011) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 8, 2016
Bottle (from saveur-biere). Pours dark golden-amber with whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is very hoppy, piney, malty some caramel sweetness. Flavor is sweet and bitter, pine, malt, caramel. Finish is pine-dry bitter with lingering sweetness and bit of booze. Very drinkable, everything is well balanced. Despite being very hoppy it doesn’t feel harsh. Overall: great beer, classic US hoppy style brew.
