4.13/5 rDev +5.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Presentation: 22oz brown bomber, white silk screened label with no freshness date.
Appearance: Effervescent carbonation with a light haze from both the chill and some from the yeast, fluffy white head holds strong on top of the pale golden orange colour.
Smell: Citrusy of a tart orange and bit of rind, light bready and yeasty aromas … clean to the nose.
Taste: Big crispness, smoothness lays in strong also after the medium high carbonation. Medium body with a mounting dryness. Quick flash of grainy pale malt before the hops set in, bitterness is lightly sharp with a rounded pungent citric flavour. Clean in the mouth with waves of citric flavours from the hops and a straight lines pale graininess that is, again, clean. Down deep is a hop flavour that borders on the earthy with herbal undertones. The back end is crisp and dry though not bone dry, hops lay in with a long lasting herbal flavour with citric flavours.
Notes: Poster boy for the American Pale Ale style, rich without being too complex and drinkable to the point of being a beer to have in the fridge year round. The hop fix is there for the hopheads but not too hoppy to the point excessive.

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.
