22 oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
7.25%ABV, serve in a pint at 45-50°F
A - Steady carbonation streams through the vibrant golden beer to it's mountainous, rocky head. Impeccable retention coats the pint in thick lace as the foam glides down the pint.
S - First word that comes to mind? Orgasmic. Second? Hoppy. AleSmith IPA is bursting at the seams with tropical fruit and woodsy pine nuances, perfectly balanced by caramel and biscuit undertones. Could I say more? Sure, but I think five out of five for aroma says enough.
T - Citrus and pine complexities are showcased, flourishing with super high quality and lead wonderfully into the sticky pine resin finish that is balanced by gooey caramel malt and crunchy toasted English muffin.
M - AleSmith IPA maintains balance with hops and scores big time with malt flavor and integrity all while keeping a fairly light-bodied profile that finishes with exceptionally balanced dry hop bitterness.
O - Without a doubt AleSmith IPA is one of the greatest IPAs on the planet. It's explosive aroma transitions wonderfully into flavor without the insane bitterness one might expect from such a hop-forward beer. AleSmith IPa is truly a world-class beer to behold.

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and caramel malt. Body is full and tangy. Citrusy and piney hops, alcohol, caramel and bready malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long, dry, and grapefruity. Excellent brew.
