AleSmith

Style - IPA

Commercial Description:  Deep golden to light amber color, and a nice off-white head, with good retention when properly served. Starts off with pleasantly strong hop flavors, balanced by a firm malt backdrop, then fades to a dry finish with a lingering hoppiness.  Medium straw color, pale tan head. Rich malty aroma with a HUGE dose of hops. Medium-full body with sweet malty flavors and a delicious abundance of aromatic, bittering hops.

Editor’s Notes:  It doesn’t get much better than this! The aroma will stop you in your tracks, with really fragrant tropical fruit, citrus, and flowers jumping out of the bottle. The taste is unbelievably good, with wonderful mango, tangerine, and pineapple hop flavors enveloping your taste buds right out of the chute. A bit of bready malt provides a backbone for the hops. Grapefruit hops actually join in as you swallow; I don’t think I have ever experienced an IPA with this many diverse hop flavors. There is moderate hop bitterness that complements the experience, but allows the outstanding hop flavors to be AleSmith’s calling card. I savor every drop of this beer - it is the nectar of the gods!

    I really liked this beer, smooth and not over hoppy. The more I drank it the more I liked it.

    This beer has a dark amber color. The smell was a different blend of citrus hops and quite appetizing. However, It didn’t quite stand up to other IPA’s that I have had. I did like it, but it didn’t seem like the hops blended that well together or were balanced. I think they could have used a better combination of citrus hops. I am in no way saying it is bad, I would probably choose another IPA over this one.
