4.24/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bomber bottled 8/8/2013. Served chilled.

Alesmith's X pours a very pale golden yellow color with thin fizzy white head. It settles fairly quickly but leaves some spotty lace.

Aroma is full of fresh citrusy hops. More hoppy than just about every other pale ale in terms of scent.

Flavor is also pleasantly, surprisingly, hoppy. There is a nice and simple pale malt base but liberally hopped with citrus/grapefruit west coast hops.

Mouthfeel is light in body, bitter but balanced, nicely carbonated.

Overall a really excellent pale ale. Just wish it didn't break my favorite bottle opener!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours clear-ish gold with pure white creamy head of about 2 fingers that slowly dissipates and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit, pine, and something spicy that I'm not sure of. Taste is not fruity at all, bitter, spice in the nose turns out to be oniony kind of thing that finally gets piney for a split second, then sweetens up with some malt at the end. Has a lingering bitterness that is enjoyable. Mouthfeel is just ok. Overall, being my first Alesmith beer, I'm a little disappointed.
