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.

Pours a hazy amber with a minimal head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of grapefruit, yeast, and some caramel. Taste pretty much sums up the aromas but this beer is superbly balanced. Nothing offensive in the realm of bitterness. Perhaps one of the best IPA’s ever. This beer is a rarity from where I’m from so this is a breath of fresh air to have something like this fall into my lap. CHEERS!

Grapefruit, tangerine, even some malty marmalade in the aroma. Nice and fruity. Taste is also nice, you can tell this is well made. Caramel behind a tone of fruitiness, some grassy bitterness as well. Slight piney, dry, bitter finish. Smooth mouthfeel. A nice example of a balanced IPA.

Gerbeer (3896) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2017
12 oz can. Pours a hazy amber with full head. Aromas of candied tropical fruit, spicy mangoes, pithy grapefruit, and sweet doughty malts. Flavors of pine, sharp bitter pineapple, dry resin, and biscuity malts. Expecting more from the nose. (And Alesmith in general.) This is not a 100 RB. I think the name is getting the ratings...

rdixon77 (2945) - Georgia, USA - OCT 3, 2017
Awesome, standard IPA. Mix of floral and citrus hops. Crisp, but fuller body. Nothing that stood out, just a balanced solid all the way through.

herrklemann (407) - Graz, AUSTRIA - SEP 27, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2017 Can. Beautiful pour. Medium, eggshell head on a murky amber body. Distinct citric punch up front, then becomes quite refined and full. Tangerine, passion fruit, malts, some herbal bitterness. Zesty, some hop pellets, honey. Medium sweetness, turns herbal bitter. Full body with soft carbonation. Great, classic American IPA. Big and bold, but also well balanced. Really nice.

Keg, Brewdog Leicester. Golden with a firm foam. Crunchy toasted malts with floral, herbal pine. Grassy with bittersweet grapefruit. Orange with more spicy and floral pine coming through. Very well balanced. Extremely drinkable.
