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.

brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2013 Pours a beautiful hazy, sunset orange color with a finger length off white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a thick lacing around the glass. Nice carbonation which tells me this will be a refreshing ipa. Smells of resinous fruits like grapefruit, tangerine, mango, and pineapple. Also get some pine and like a bubblegum smell from the sweet malts. Taste is very much like it smells. starts with the resinous fruits such as pineapple and tangerine. Then in the middle there is a great balance of malt: get bready flavors as well as a creamy carmel sweetness. Then the finish is an incredible blend of the sweet, carmely malts and the resinous hop qualities. Get a prominent bubblegum flavor, as well as hints of pineapple, pine, grapefruit, and lemon. The bitterness gets more astringent as it goes through the flavor profile; however, the sweet and bready malts also get more prominent on the finish, so there is a nice balance at the end. A nice dry, crisp, clean finish. Medium body with a creamy and crisp mouthfeel. Wish I could get this more often. Just an incredible IPA.

hauxe (627) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 19, 2017
Pours golden orange from the bottle with a frothy white head. Aroma is mango, pine, coriander, tangerine. Taste is bittersweet and quite fruity, mango and citrus being dominant. Finish trends bitter but still in balance with a dry, lightly warming finish. One of the best IPAs I have drunk.

vinivini (1961) - Gomel, BELARUS - APR 12, 2017
Can. Hazy honey orange, good ivory head. Hoppy nose delivering citrusy and resiny notes. Honey malts background. Medium body. Very solid bitterness characterizes the flavour. Resins and grapefruit. Medium to heavy bitter. Some sweet malts behind it. Very long bitter finish. Well it is not surprising. It is just damn very good.

javiercrasher (456) - Granada, SPAIN - APR 12, 2017
Mucho pino y mucha resina en nariz. Algo de fruta en boca. Espuma impresionante. Amargota. Intenso postgusto. Merecida fama, aunque dira que es un poco de la vieja escuela. Hoy se buscan IPA ms finas. Espectacular. Canned 05/10/16
