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.

At the tasting session by Joes. A clear orange colored beer, with thick foamy white head. The aroma of a lot of hops, a little grassy and fruits like citrus. The taste of hops bitter, malts, fruits like citrus, grapes. A little alcohol. The aftertaste is bitter.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Bottled. Clear golden amber color, short head. Aroma of soft fruity hops, pine, grapefruit, citrus, pineapple, some caramel malt only. Nice bitter taste, which lingers on and on. Perfectly balanced. Great stuff.

trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2009
Bomber - big thanks to MrChopin for the bottle! Pours a bright orange, with a small-to-mid size fluffy head. Powerful citrus hops in the aroma - mandarin and grapefruit, with a touch of honey and an almost bubble-gum sweetness for the malt side of things. This is one smooth brew, given the bitterness of the flavor. Big resiny pine notes and a slightly stronger malt contingent. Full-bodied, but still very, very crisp. Dry, bitter finish. Really good stuff - but proves to me that Ive been jaded by palate bombs - its just not the same as a IIPA.

Pours a yellowish golden orange with a sudsy white head which thins quickly. Aroma is grapefruit, honey, and floral hops. Flavor is honey, grapefruit, resiny hops. Nice and smooth at the finish, perfect bitterness. Similar to hopslam with a touch less sweetness. Nice IPA

dmschefke (575) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2009
Pours an orange gold with a medium white head. Citrus hops straight to the nose, hints of pine, oranges, and caramel. First few sips were wonderful, but I found it increasingly harder to drink as the glass emptied. Overall a nice beer, but I think 12oz would be enough.

Wow and wow again. Hops strong on the nose. Very very balanced. The hops do not dominate the palate at all as I have come to expect and enjoy in a morbid way from west coast and mid west ipas. In the flavor I get hops, citrus, pine but nothing doing more then anything else should with this beer. I would have to say that this guy is my new favorite IPA. Hats off to Alesmith.

MeisterBrew (138) - Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with a nice sized white head. Very hoppy aroma... grapefruit, citrus, and pine. Flavor is very smooth, not overpowering. Sweet flavor initially gives way to a nice hoppy bitterness. I love it!
