COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally a faint idea dreamt up by Tony Gwynn and Peter Zien, the now imperial version of their collaboration, San Diego Pale Ale .394, will make an appearance in our 20th Anniversary Specialty Release Series. All proceeds from this beer will go towards raising funds for the Tony Gwynn Museum which will honor this hall of famer and raise money for TAG (Tony & Alicia Gwynn Foundation) at AleSmith’s new facility.

HALL OF FAME IMPERIAL SAN DIEGO PALE ALE .394 (ABV 9%)

AleSmith’s Hall of Fame version of the legendary Tony Gwynn .394 San Diego Pale Ale pays tribute to the one and only Mr. Padre and his commitment to excellence. Just like its predecessor, this "imperial" or "double" .394 is bursting with even more American hops, lending the beer a diverse palate of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine. Tony envisioned this beer in early 2014 and AleSmith is honored to make another one of his dreams come true.

"Tony Gwynn was incredibly proud to be a member of the San Diego community; he impacted lives all over the world. He was the heart, soul, and flavor of San Diego for so many years and now you can taste his passion with every sip." - Alicia Gwynn

Light haze on this orange - gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and smooth. Very light malts for a DIPA, a pleasant creamy sweetness from them. Decent piney hop. Piney orange and mild hop spice nibbling away in the background. Traces of citric peel and tropical fruits. Smooth finish. A pleasant and drinkable DIPA but there is no fireworks for me.

Fruity and excessive fruit in the smell. The flavor is fruity and a little bit creepy. Good bitterness that fills the mouth for a long time. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Very intense iipa indeed, beautiful round bouquet of fruits, hops and sweetness added, a true iipa in the sense of the word. Not as great as some others, but it’s close
