In my opinion FAR SUPERIOR TO PLINY.

Ale Smith is hands down my favorite IPA though I've only had it bottled. Way easier as a daily drinker than Pliny and has those floral citrus notes right in the head that we all love and then...nothing. No lingering sensations, no major bite at the back. It's all in the front and it's damn good.

Poured three fingers of head on a hazy, light straw colored body.
The aroma is a basket full of mango, orange, lemon, honey and pine needles.
The taste is a sharp pine bitterness to start, a dry lemon bitter in the middle and finishes with the mildest touch of honey sweetness.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Excellent aroma and flavor profile.
