Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2007
22 oz bottle: Pours a perfect honey amber hue. Lofty billowing peach coloured head, mostly lasting, leaving sheets of lace. Nose of apricots, vanilla, cherry, big citrus, perfumey, floral radiant hops. Chewy pale malts provide firm structered backbone for a total onslaught of hops from every direction. Alcohol is evident in dry warming finish. All grapefruit, pine, sticky lingering hops. Quite a nice brew I say. Thank you ALeSmith for rockin your brews out east hey!

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 (884) - 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 (3002) - 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.
