COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This refreshing, light-golden Extra Pale Ale embodies drinkability. AleSmith X pushes the limits by offering a level of flavor not often found in this classic style. Fresh American hops are abundant but carefully balanced by a light, crisp body and smooth bitterness. Notes of citrus and pine combine with a delicate malt sweetness to create a flavorful drinking experience.

Cybercat (5342) - Georgia, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Taps hazy golden-amber with a minimal eggshell head. Aroma offers a strong note of resiny hops, more IPA than "regular" pale ale, supported by orange and malty notes. Flavor continues the IPA-like hoppy note but ramps up the malt, while a bit of pear joins the orange in the fruit component. Mouthfeel features fairly firm body and strong, lively fizz. X marks the spot to slake your thirst.

darbeer75 (703) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Aroma: sweet and citrusy; Appearance: golden, clear pour with billowy white head that dissipates slowly; some lacing; Taste: follows nose but is fairly bland; some bite at the end; Palate: light bodied with medium lightly bitter finish; Overall: very drinkable but not my favorite APA. A little disappointed given quality of other Alesmiths.
