look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

pours very nicely with a clean puffy head, that retains quite well, accompanied by some sticky bubble clusters on the side of the glass. the body is fresh motor oil in color (amber/orange), and is pockmarked with a foamy top that has both large and small bubbles.
smells like melted peach candy, pine trees in the wind, and has a very pleasant balance to it.
tastes slightly spicy, pretty muted though but its there, has a nice herbaceous quality, with some whisps of hay to it.
light on the palate and dangerously smooth!
This beer is pretty available for me, ill be visiting it again.

Pours a light golden yellow with a thin white head. Smell is citrusy and piney with a hint of sweetness. Taste follows the nose for the most part. Tropical fruit comes through a bit more as well. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Carbonation is what you'd expect from an IPA. Overall this is a great west coast IPA. I kinda wish Alesmith sold 12oz bottles though. I'd imagine Alesmith would be much more popular if they did.
