Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Bottle Pours a murky amber with a good fizzy off white head. Lasts fairly well and has better than average lacing. The aroma is a wonderful mix of malts and hops. Has good chocolate, carmel malts and nice pine and grapefruit hops. The real pleasure is when it hits your mouth. Has a great carbonation with a medium body. Wonderful flavors for both the malt and hops. An excellent durationand an even better ending, no strong aftertaste but just enough to keep you hoping you dont run out. Finish has the perfect amount of bitterness. This is IMHO the best beer I have had. The great people at Ale Smith must distribute east immediately.

The greatness of the Alesmith IPA amped up! Light copper color with a large head of creamy white foam. Juicy grapefruit and fresh squeezed tangerine supported by a sweet, full bodied, yet clean and not over the top caramel base. Again, very juicy citrus and dank.

jcr (2691) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle. Deep golden/orange body with a frothy, white head. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, toasted grain, alcohol. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Resin, pine and grapefruit taste with strong sweet malt backbone thats a bit too much.

Bawelt (864) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 5, 2016
Pas grand fan de ce genre de DIPA assez malte (moins que dautres en loccurrence) et thylique qui coupe les houblons. Le nez est tres agrumes, noisette et amande, petit fond de fraicheur qui pointe (qui me fait dire que cest dommage). Bouche peu amre. On ressent normment les cts noisettes amandes et des touches dagrumes. Finale tres seche pour du 8.5 plutt amre et agrable, assez aromatique.

javiercrasher (493) - Granada, SPAIN - DEC 4, 2016
Brutal! De color naranja, turbia con una capa de espuma compacta. En nariz ctrica y herbal. En boca recuerdo dulce, luego pino. Resinosa y amarga, bien balanceada por la malta. La malta le da un toque dulce. Alcohol bien integrado aunque se nota. Lastima que no tenga etiqueta con fecha de consumo preferente.

DonGregorio (323) - POLAND - DEC 3, 2016
UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 Bottle. Pours unclear orange with medium to large white head - durable, excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, resin, flowers, citrus in background. Taste is light fruity sweet and medium to heavy bitter, at first pine, but also with lots of citrus, tropical fruits, grapefruit, tangerine. Lasting, pleasant bitterness. Medium+ body, oily texture, average carbonation. Very tasty, smooth, hoppy DIPA, but it is probably greater and more aromatic when its fresh.
