COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its 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.

timbeer (69) - Rosemount, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Bottle shared with MatSciGuy Pours a deep amber color, clear but some floaties from the residue on the bottom (no problem for me). Lasting whitish head with decent staying power. Aroma all hops, piney, resinousy, mild citrusand a touch of floral. Taste is a good balance of malt sweetness, great flavor from the hops that is a nice bitterness - not bracing but smooth.

[Bottle] brought back from S.F. Pours a nice orangey amber with a finger of sticky beige head. Aroma is grapefruity with some pine resin, and a touch of florals. Flavor is pulpy orange, some sweet malt backbone creates a rich mouthfeel, some spiciness, and a little bit of yeast character.

Juelze (1144) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Thanks to my bro for hooking this one up! Pours a rich coppery color with medium offwhite head with nice traces of lacing. Aroma is of over ripe and slight acrid fruit. Some tropical fruit and citrus come through. Taste is citrus, earth, lemon and mild malt. Full bodied and astringent, this beer is a let down.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2009
tThanks to alexsdad06 for this! Pours a copper color with a medium frothy white head which leaves lots of bubbly lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, and some floral characteristics. Taste is some nice citrus hops, grapefruit........but there is a weird bitterness and some astringency. Its just not too smooth. Solid overall.

JaBier (7289) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2009
22oz bottle. Semi-opaque copper pour with a big white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops with a malt balance that almost has a hint of creaminess. Citrus hop flavor with a sweet malt balance and the bitterness lingers on your tongue. Very well done.

Bottle from FlacoAlto, thanks! Orange blonde color. Grapefruit and melon in the slightly perfumed oily hoppy aroma. Very firm oily grassy hopbitter flavor with grapefruit and pineapple, lingering on in the long aftertaste. Some plastic in the finish. Well balanced ale.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Poured from a 22oz bomber and served in a shaker. This IPA poured a slightly hazy amber with a creamy head of beige foam that left some decent lacing around the glass. The aroma consisted of fresh tropical fruit, tangerines, peaches, and an underlying note of caramel. The flavor was vibrant and full of fresh tropical fruits. Grapefruit, tangerines, peaches, and some light mango. Also a touch of light caramel/toffee. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and had a slight oiliness. Lightly carbonated. One of the most flavorful IPAs I have ever tasted. Excellent!

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2010 Bottle. Thanks to Marsiblursi. Golden colour with a white head. Grape, pine, black currant, vanilla, tropical fruits, malty background, very hoppy but balanced. Dry finish. Very nice!
