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.

ACHops (1476) - 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 Ive 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.

Bebum (830) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Hazy gold, tall and lasting head. Medium body, flavorful, discrete mouthfeel, silky texture with high carbonation but low heat, lingering aftertaste. Bitter, dry but well balanced. Deliciously hoppy all the way to the finish, resiny, herbal, definite malt but in background. Not as good as the "double" version but still a great IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft. Its dumb that its taken me years to drink this -- there always seems to be something else on draft or other bottles in the shop. Well, that was a mistake, because this beer is fantastic. Even in a world saturated with IPAs and DIPAs, where I can drive to Tree House or Vermont in a couple of hours and get cases of cutting-edge hop bombs, this holds up. Its got a west coast IPA "bite" and its body is crisp, balanced, and dry, but theres a lot of citrus and tropical fruit hop aroma, which adds a ton of enjoyable complexity. This is the real deal.

TedE (1115) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2017
355ml can into shaker. Slightly hazy golden copper beer with perfect two finger white head. Steady fine carbonation. Nose is citric and earthy. Light and fruity at first then a long lingering descent into bitterness, seems to grow through grapefruit, quinine, pine until a last little burst of sweet fruit and malt balances it all. Complex and contemplative.

DonGregorio (118) - POLAND - JAN 5, 2017
Can. Pours unclear golden with small off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is heavy hoppy: pine and resin up front, citrus - grapefruit and tangerine in the back. Taste: very light sweetness with floral and tangerine notes followed by medium to heavy resiny and piney crisp bitterness, which quickly falls to lower level, leaving resiny, fruity aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation, quite slick and smooth. Great balance. Awesome IPA, appriopriate beer for my 100th rating.
