COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s Pretty Awesome. A San Diego classic, AleSmith IPA showcases the versatility of American hops. Aromas of grapefruit and tangerine lead into an abundance of fresh pine and tropical fruit notes followed by a crisp, resinous bitterness. The complex hop profile is supported by a firm malt presence to create an incredibly flavorful and well-balanced IPA.

Pours a hazy amber with a minimal head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of grapefruit, yeast, and some caramel. Taste pretty much sums up the aromas but this beer is superbly balanced. Nothing offensive in the realm of bitterness. Perhaps one of the best IPA’s ever. This beer is a rarity from where I’m from so this is a breath of fresh air to have something like this fall into my lap. CHEERS!

Flaske 660ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsdalen. Drukket på Lillehøgda 11 Aug 16. Gylden. Litt uklar. Pent luftig skum som varer. Heftig & god ferskenaroma. Smaken tørket aprikos. Lett syrlig etter hvert. En god del bunnfall & gjørmete siste kvelling. Utmerket øl.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Spruce Creek Provisions. Appearance is cloudy dark yellow/orange/light brown with fair sparkle, finger-width off-white head with poor retention and decent sudsy lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit, grapefruit, citrus, pine. Taste is as aroma balanced with moderate resin bitterness. Palate is medium bodied with thick, foamy texture, average-to-lively carbonation and balance of sweet and bitter finish. Overall, nice complexity of flavors and balance of sweet and bitter. Top notch.

TH28 (362) - - AUG 19, 2016
12oz bottle. No apparent code date. Appearance: Deep golden and clear like apple juice, with a light, thick bubbled off white foam head. Aroma: Caramel maltiness followed by a strong tropical fruit, pineapple, berry, and resinous hop aroma. Taste: Rich caramel malt sweetness slowly turning to a resinous, light citrus hop bitterness that intensifies through the swallow. Well balanced malt profile against the bitterness. Mouthfeel: On the heavier side for an IPA, with a low to moderate carbonation. Finish: Despite the balance, a strong resinous hop bitterness stands out after the swallow. Overall: A very well balanced IPA despite the aggressive bitterness. Does a better job than some other west coast IPAs of providing a strong malt backbone that balances it out. Nothing stands out as sharp here, which speaks to the balance

ciocanelu (1134) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 18, 2016
Slightly hazy dark golden color with creamy, off-white head. Aroma has a nice perfume, floral and citrusy. Taste starts really balanced with some clean malts, citrusy hops, a bit of pine resin and finishes with medium hop bitterness and lingering grapefruit and a touch of white grapes. Medium body with nice carbonation and pleasant mouthfeel. It’s a really good IPA overall, classic west coast and well brewed.

On tap at Sparkling City on Tap festival in Corpus Christi. Clear golden with a lacy off-white head. Delicious aroma of citrus, resin, tropical fruit and caramel malt. Taste is very nicely balanced but plenty well hopped. Medium bodied, crisp, and dry. Wonderful.

neongolden (1187) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2016
(330ml bottle from boxbeers.dk) Pours a clear pale amber with a moderate, dense white head that fades very slowly with lots of lace. Aroma of grapefruit, clementine, pine resin, pale raw sugar, touch of dough, Flavour is orange, mandarin, grapefruit, citrus oils, pine resin, slight tropical fruit hints, light caramel malt that’s a bit sweet and a little bready. Moderate pine resin, grapefruit peel and hop oil bitterness builds into a dry finish. Medium bodied, creamy filling carbonation. Very crisp, clean take on an IPA, more malt, citrus and pine than most new-school versions. Modern classic. High drinkability!
