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.

Alesmith IPA A-Pours slightly hazy golden color with very minimal bubbles. Chunky two finger off white head. S-Aromas of sticky pine, citrus, and sweet tropical fruit. T-Bunch of hop bitterness throughout with some citrus rind bitterness. Waiting for the fruit notes but never quite make it on the palate. There's something missing. Too hop forward, there's just not a sweet note in it. Overall- it's okay. I got it in a trade. If I saw it on a shelf I wouldn't buy it. Just waiting for that extra something at the end that doesn't happen. -

355ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a medium, creamy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet fruity aroma of caramel malt, grapefruit, tangerine, peach and pine. Fresh, sweet fruity flavour of caramel malt, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, tropical fruit and grass with a dry, bitter, pine resin finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A world class IPA. It’s Pretty Awesome indeed.

Light golden hue with a lasting thick white head poured into a tulip glass from a can. Strong aroma of citrus and tropical fruits. Sharp bitterness followed by a complex flavour of citrus and tropical fruits with dank resinous finish. Light malt profile with just enough sweetness. Mouthful on the dry side. Delicious beer, highly recommended.

Vom Fass im Muted Horn Berlin 2017-04 getrunken. Hmm ein typisches IPA ohne viele Frucht am Gaumen eben. Nicht schlecht aber auch nicht was Besonderes.

Having a can in the Basking Ridge. Might be known for the rave reviews I heard in the kitchen of "it's not the worst I've had," "you know what's just above this? Focal Banger," and "I don't remember it tasting like caramel." Very malty IPA, but you know what I always say - better malty than salty! Full disclosure I've never said that about beer before but I might start, I see it sweeping the nation as the new beer slogan for the growing craft market. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Trolleo (1566) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 23, 2017
Caramel, lots of tropical fruits, mango and passion fruit, some grass, medium intense, very pleasant. Hazy to cloudy orange color, huge sized white head with good retention. Nice amount of bitterness, Atlantic unfortunately did his job again, too much caramel and peach, dead/old hop notes but there is some pine underneath, again mango and passion fruit. Nice medium long to long medium to high bitter finish. Medium to medium full body, soft to average carbonation. It is one years old but still great, I can only imagine what it’s like when it’s fresh.
