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.

ACHops (1690) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 22 oz bottle. Pours light orangish amber with very thick fluffy head. Aroma is fresh juicy grapefruit hops. Hints of sweetness and pine. Taste is smooth creamy mild caramel malt with those sweet citrusy hops on the finish. Incredibly restrained bitterness, almost separate from the hops, but comes on at the finish and lingers well. Easily among the smoothest, best balanced IPAs I’ve ever had - simply no harsh notes. 7/2/13: on nitro @ the brewery. Super creamy mouthfeel, as expected. Hop notes seem a bit more punchy - maybe they just stand out more when paired with the smoother body? Still outstanding, amazing to get this much flavor without the alcohol or sweetness of a DIPA.

Tåkete gyllenbrun med fint skum. Duft av mango, sitrus, noe bartær og lett karamell. Det samme følger i smaken. Intens bitterhet.

09-09-17 // taster, draft. At Beavertown Extravaganza 2017, London. Awesome IPA but at the Festival in comparison to all the awesome beers it falls down. Still a great beer with loads of citric, tangerine hop bitterness and some good fruitness.

Perfect West Coast IPA. Citrus, pine, floral fruity. The alcohol stands up. Crisp, clean finish. If you find this, buy it. Especially if you like hops. A giant.

From can. Pours golden/orange, hazy, with medium head and fair lacing. Aroma: spruce and pine, pine and spruce, bit of grapefruit peel. Bitter taste, long finish, a little bit astringent, soft carbonation. Not bad, but not too exciting.

BenL8 (298) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 19, 2017
Pours a lovely gold, slightly hazy yet mostly clear, very nice head, good retention. Aroma is very pine centered, with notes of tangerine and in general resiny, herbal hops. Medium body, quite thick mouthfeel. Flavour is first of all beautifully balanced, which is always what I want most in an IPA. Nice malt balance, complemented by fruity, spicy and herbal hops, which is not too overpowering though. a lot more grapefruit than in aroma, peppery, spicy note, still a lot of pine, citrus fruit in general. Pronounced bitterness, especially in the finish, but the malt base handles this nicely. Beautiful IPA, a classic from Alesmith fit for every and any occasion

Delicious tasting IPA from San Diego. Bright citrus hops balanced with smooth bitterness completed by full and rounded palate. A stand out beer to bring and surprise your buds on a Friday night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
