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.

RevBFG (76) - - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours hazy gold with off with head. Smells of grapefruit and pine. Taste does not match, which makes it really interesting. Tastes of malt first then long, subtle hop finish with a little pineapple worked in. Very good and very, very interesting.

danjs5 (174) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2017
Clear light golden colour with thin head. Sweet tropical fruit with piney aroma and hold tropical fruit upfront flavours too. Sweet syrupy mouthfeel leading to firm hop bitterness and subtle malt backbone. Very drinkable. Bold hop flavours. Well balanced and quite refined. Crisp finish.

McWorta (1601) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 24, 2017
Crystal clear golden with a large fine poring white head offering good lacings. Aromas of caramel, pine, resin, grapefruit zest and orange jam develop. Fine carbonation, slick with a surprisingly lean body. Soft sweetness with a developping solid yet harmonious bitterness. Light dry lasting finish.

kaserov (488) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 24, 2017
Color naranja, medianamente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (muy buena retencin). Carbonatacin mnima. Textura acuosa. Aroma a fruta tropical, humedad, resina, naranja, malta si se agita. Sabor frutal (pomelo, naranja, mango), con buena base maltosa casi dulce y final de amargor muy moderado. Seca. En postgusto queda algo de amargor resinoso y algo de fruta tropical. Es una autntica pena, porque est enlatada en mayo de 2016. Si est tan buena a estas alturas es que fresca es una IPA del carajo. Modificar oportunamente mi puntuacin y opiniones en caso de que la prueba ms fresca en un futuro. PD: he mentido de manera inconsciente. Est enlatada en octubre de 2016. Fresca? Habra que discutirlo entre opiniones divergentes.

bjorn77 (119) - Krakw, POLAND - MAR 17, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2017 Puszka, data zapuszkowania 05.10.16 więc jak na IPA to już trochę ma. Ciemnozłote, płprzejrzyste, z ładną pianą. Armat średnio mocny, są w nim słodkie owoce tropikalne, landrynki, trochę cytrusw. W smaku przyjemna słodycz, znw owoce tropikalne i cytrusowe, słodki smak skontrowany jest mocną goryczką, mocną cytrusowo-żywiczną, ale przyjemną, w sam raz. Goryczka chwilę zalega w ustach, jest jeszcze odczucie ściągania się na języku. Finisz lekko miodowy, chyba przez wiek piwa. Mnie rozczarował głwnie brak uderzenia aromatw chmielowych w piwie, ale i tak bardzo dobre.Jak uda mi się kiedyś dostać świeżą wersję butelkową to na pewno ocenie ponownie, bo teraz wydaje mi się że to piwo sporo straciło przez swj wiek

doriangrey (5) - Diamond Creek, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2017 does not count
Great piney aroma, hops aplenty and alcohol well hidden. Very tasty. Could be the base IPA to compare others to

davidezdonz (431) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - MAR 14, 2017
A 12 fl oz can, canned on 5th October 2016. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass. It was a lightly hazy, light copper orange colour with a nice two finger off white head with good retention and great lacing. Aromas of tropical pineapple and apricot with citrus orange, pine and sweet biscuit malt. Tastes of citrusy and bitter orange peel, mandarin and grapefruit followed by sweet-ish pineapple, biscuit malt and pine. The finish has a nice long resinous bitterness. Crisp, dry-ish, medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a wonderfully tasty and balanced West Coast IPA. Also loving the cans!
