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.

I knew I had this beer the last time I was in San Diego but I just couldnt be sure. Got the bottle in a trade with WeeHeavySD. Pours a clear blond with a thin white head. Citrus hops are the main aroma. Good bitter finish. I still like my Alpha King better for a APA, but this is a fine beer.

If you can imagine a lighter-smoother version of a robust, fine Pale Ale, but sacrifice none of the flavor, depth of character or drinking experience...youd be left with X. Pours light golden and clear. Flavor is citrus and sweet-malt. Finishes slightly bitter, sweet and very tingly-clean!

Huge thanks to BMan1113VR for hooking me up with this one. Crushed with Jakebra. Beautiful nose of orange citrus and hops. Flavor is pretty nice, very smooth, but a little thin. I still have nothing to complain about. Definitely dug it.

Bottle on 1/1/09. Another winner from Alesmith. Gold pour with an off white head which leaves good lacing. Lemon hops dominate the aroma. Flavor is a little weak but balanced of lemon, grapefruit and floral hops. Slightly bitter and a light mouthfeel.

A citrussy aroma to it. An light amber color with a good head. A relly nice pale ale, one of the better that I have had. Very grapefruit taste to it at first.

From the tap poured amber with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

22oz Bottle... Poured clear, straw color with a beige head. Ive been suffering from a cold so the aroma wasnt as true to me as it would, but contained some noticeable floral hops. Foamy mouth feel that wasnt overly dry with a nice softness. It was really balanced with malted, biscuit notes and a hop bitterness. You could tell this was made with some HQ ingredients.

Bottle, pours a slightly hazy, gold body with generous, white foam head. Aroma of sweet grapefruit and citrus hops along with a hint of green hops. Taste is bitter grapefruit with a slight hint of green and pine hops. Well-balanced and light bodied. Finishes with a bitter lemon citrus character along with a hint of aspirin that never gets too annoying.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2010 Draught at Alesmith. Obviously hoppy in the aroma and flavour but also balanced with a nice malt backbone. The hops were very fruity, citrusy and predominantly grapefruit. Not overpowering at all but there the whole time. Surpisingly easy to drink.
