I was very pleased by the suggestion FooFaa had of tasting this great IPA. Shared with tenderbranson69, ffejherb, brewslut and me. I was most appreciative to have a taste of this, thanks FooFaa.

A - A light golden like lemon meringue w/ light amber highlights and thick frothy inch of creamy bone white cap, a generous lace clings to the glass.

S- A sweet floral aroma w/ fresh squeezed tangerine and grapefruit greets my nostrils en force. The hops in this just pop with vibrant odors that wake up the senses

M - The feel is the most tantalizing component of this for me, with resiny and sweet, but mild acidity from the hops and gentle malt textures adding depth. The body is a bit above medium w/ a smooth carbonation spreading the hoppy juiciness over my taste buds

T - Crisp juicy acidic hoppy magic - the flavors present a unified flavor w/ fresh sweet vegetal hop notes embraced by a grapefruit balance of bitter and sweet. The grapefruit flavor is as if you had just removed the fruit from the skin rind and a bitter orange note accents the citrus hops so well that the malt is not in focus, but certainly in the peripheral. A gentle alcohol flavor makes all the fresh blend of grapefruit, tangerine, mango and lemon interesting and adds a great dimension

D - A fantastic IPA, one of the best I have had for sure, a truly exemplary drinking experience from a top-notch American IPA -it's pretty awesome!

I picked this bottle up at Julio's -
A -Slightly hazy w/ an overabundace of foam -1 22oz filled 4 glasses to the top and had to wait to pour the rest in. The color is tangerine w/ a butterscotch glow and lace sticks and looks like solar flares -the bead is tight

S - lots of tropical notes w/ mango, tangerine and pineapple coming to mind w/ subtle herbal nose and smell of sweet grass and mild slight spiced odor w/ light alcohol aroma

M - Sweet, grassy and moderately bitter texture w/ mild carbonation after the foam settled w/ hint of astringency and spice. The ale feels tangy juicy and resinous w/ light tannic finish

T - A grassy flavor on entry w/ gentle pineapple tanginess and mango juicy taste. The hop flavor has very subtle grapefruity acidity w/ a sharp herbal lemony tinge in the middle that drops off slightly w/ citrus rind tastes lingering. The malt flavor is mild only adding sweetness slightly to the citrusy tropical hop flavors the finish is semibitter and dry

D - A very good drinking IPA, one of the best w/ intense hop flavor and balanced acidity and bitterness w/ a bit of a pain to pour foaming into four glasses but the quality of the beer is hard to beat, a really great example of the style

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a standard pint glass.

A: Light copper orange color, cloudy with a one finger white head. Some lacing that remained on the glass

S:Citrus aroma and hops with a small hit of melon. Not a particularly strong aroma, but pleasant nonetheless

T: Hops and a hint of malt comes first, and then the hops begin to dominate the pallet while still maintaining a nice balance and never overwhelming bitter.

M: Medium to light thickness and pleasantly carbonated. Nice hoppy feeling in the beginning which levels off to produce a clean, not overbearing aftertaste. It leaves a little tingling sensation in the back of you palate as well

D: Very drinkable, especially as you allow it to warm up.

Overall good IPA, not as bitter as I was expecting however very good balance in flavors. Allowing the beer to warm reveals a good amount for this brew. I'm lucky to have this beer, and Alesmith in my hometown.

I had this in a bottle on 8/9/09. The appearance is typical American IPA with a caramel color. Excellent head retention and unbelieveable lacing sticks on the side of the glass. The smell starts with a true hop aroma but not over the top. The taste is wonderful. A little citrus but with the extra kick in alcohol (7.25%) it adds a nice malt flavor to balance it out. Mouthfeel is outstanding, with a smooth finish. I enjoyed this better than these great IPA's as well (DogFish Head 90 and Victory Hop Devil Ale).

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours an energetic bright hue of amber, lively frothy white head that hangs around to chat. Sticky, soapy lacing is left in the aftermath of this head-gasm.

Big resiny pine in the nose to kick things off. Then comes the citrus explosion, aggressive sugar-coated grapefruit, orange peel and plant material. Smells like I am walking through a citrus grove

Tastes like a mouth full of grapefruit juice with a pine cone floating in it. The pine plays a supporting role to the gripping citric twinge that molests your taste buds. Grapefruit, grapefruit, grapefruit followed by a nice full malt backbone rich with toffee and fresh cut grass. Finishes sticky and just bitter enough to destroy any hint of the 7.25% ABV.

Tiny, tiny bubbles and lots of them dance over your tongue leaving this brew feeling somewhat full bodied and round on the finish.

This is a BIG IPA in my opinion, DIPA? This one is a beast among men and drinkable to boot. Out-fucking-standing.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Pours a deep golden yellow with an orange core. A huge luscious mountainous white head. Leaves plentiful crystallized frosty laces.

Big hop aromas: Grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, herbal resinous pine. Slight scent of yeast that adds more fruitiness, tropical. Sharp cheese and mildly toasted biscuit.

Hop bomb of an IPA. Sharp citrus cuts into the palette: sour lemons, orange peel, and bitter grapefruit blast. big "juicy" tang. yeast and malts combine for a sourdough and biscuit character that lends itself nicely to the hops, definately taking the backseat. A floral/herbal resinous grapefruity bitterness builds, and leaves a great hoppy aftertaste.

Nicely carbonated, medium to lighter bodied, silky smooth with a sticky resinous mouth coating.

Very drinkable hop forawrd IPA. excellent flavor and excellent bitterness combine for a solid juicy hoptastic citrus bomb of an IPA.

Bottle received from fatboyjim1 in a recent trade. Thanks!

Pours a cloudy dark gold with a good-sized white head on top. Retention was good, and it left some lacing webs on the glass. Smells of deep pine and citrus zest. Very sharp and resiny.

The mouth was a bit thinner than I expected. Could use a bit more carbonation play. This was a pretty bitter IPA. Plenty of citrus hop bitterness, but not as balanced out with malt sweetness as I would have liked. Finishes tart and perky. This is a good IPA, and I'm glad I traded for a few of these. Thanks again, Jim.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Perhaps a little too carbonated. It starts by overflowing the bottle when opened. The pour is minimally 2/3 head to start. Forms a solid dome of foam. Leaves extensive, decorative lace all over the glass. The liquid itself is hazy with a light gold color.

Interestingly, the initial pour gives off a pleasant pale ale malt aroma. Letting the beer settle results in a strong floral (pine) hop smell.

A smooth, high-hopped beer. While it is spicy and bitter, there is a solid malt base, almost buttery. Still, this is a story of the hop. The swallow and the aftertaste is biting, like fresh ground pepper. The alcohol is well-hidden and the body is neutral for the style. A deceptively easy beer to drink.

Pours out as orange/amber with a generous two finger head. In your face orange and grapefruit aroma, very nice. Taste is definitely hoppy citrus with some pine bitterness, not a lot. Also some malty sweetness to balance the hops a bit. Feels good, drinks great. This was my first IPA and still my favorite.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Lightly cloudy. Light copper color. 3 finger off white head. Thick large bubble head that settle quickly to a consistent soapy layer. Full large bubble lacing that remained on the glass. Yeast is floating in the bottle. The bottle says to leave the yeast in the bottle when pouring.

S - Hops. Citrus smells. Slight sweet aroma. Hidden malty aroma that was more apparent as the beer warmed up a bit

T - Hops, citrus, and a hint of cantelope. Slightly sweet. Very well balanced, was never over powering. Malty flavors mixed in. Almost a tiny bit of a burnt taste.

M - Medium thickness. Low carbonation. Hoppy forefront that was strong but did not destroy the aftertaste. Tiny bit tingly or spicy.

D - Very drinkable. Could do a whole session. Would love to have easier access to this brew.

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

Bottle purchased from BevMo in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a hazy copper color with a one-finger off-white head. The head sticks around for a good while before dissipating into a patchy layer on top leaving thick lacing.

Smells of tropical and citrus fruits with a solid amount of malt aromas backing everything up. Every now and then I get a hint of pine hops but the citrus hops are certainly in charge.

Tastes very good. Malts and hops hit the palate at the same time and the hops take over, but with a solid backing from the malt flavors. Midway through the sip the hops become a bit coarser and an almost herbal flavor comes out before a solidly bitter ending. The bitterness manages to become more intense as the beer disappears.

Mouthfeel is very good. There's a great thickness with grainy carbonation.

Drinkability is great. I could drink a whole lot of these and on a regular basis.

Overall this IPA lived up to the hype. Probably in the top 3-5 IPA's I've had that are available year round. Definitely worth a shot.

A: Golden in color with a slight haze to it, tons of foam on this one (seems to happen a lot with the AleSmith brews).

S: Pine and grapefruit from the hops, not much malt on the nose.

T: Much like you would expect, lots of citrus and a great piney bitterness. Hardly any malt in the taste, either.

M: Great crispness to this beer, fairly light on the body.

D: A wonderful IPA from AleSmith, good balance (despite that fact that you don't necessarily taste the malt), and great bitterness.

Pours a slightly hazy honey brown color with a very nice tight white head that is settling extremely slowly. Nice rocky head. The aroma is a nice citrus/grapefruit hop aroma. Very juicy. The taste is of grapefruit hops, a bit of pine and asprin. There is a noticable malt presence but it takes a way backseat to the malt, can't really distinguish it in the flavor. A nice moderate feel with soft to tingley carbonation, which gives the brew a smooth feel. However, the asprin like characteristics lead to a very dry brew, which is a negative in my book. A very nice hoppy IPA. Has some real nice hop flavors but the asprin characteristics kill it for me a bit.

500th review

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass. Opened with a loud hiss. No date on the bottle but got from South Bay who had just gotten in a fresh batch so it's good. It was a slightly hazy orange amber color with lots of carb. Some slow sliding lace. It had a massive head that was fed by an insane amount of carb streams. The head never settled so had to scoop some out to get to the beer without getting foam all over the face.

The aroma was really good with citric hops, pine resin and malty backbone. The taste followed the aroma with a good hop flavor but had a nice malt balance so not too bitter. The hops kick in in the middle and ramp-up to a nice bitter hop bite. Mouthfeel was crisp and very over-carbonated.

Overall, an excellent AIPA. High recommend. Would like to try another without the over carbonation. Not available here so not in rotation but might trade/seek another one or two.

Bomber from possibly 2008. White head with a golden color. Smells like sweet citrus and hops. This beer is incredibly smooth to drink and has no harsh bitter hops flavor. Aftertaste is dry and smooth as well. Alcohol is not detectable for a 7.25% beer. Carbonation is pretty low. This is probably one of the best IPAs I've ever had. Too bad Massachusettes doesn't get much from AleSmith or I would drink this all the time, and I rarely drink IPAs. This beer could easily creep up on you with it's high alcohol so watch out.

Poured into a Duvel glass this IPA has a vibrant orange color that glows in normal lighting. There is a light white lacing head that has collected to one side of the glass.

The smells are a touch muted despite a fairly fresh bottle. Pine, citrus, and pronounced grapefruit hit the nose hard. There is a resiny aroma that clings to the nostrils.

Taste is intensely bitter, nearly no malt is prevailent (this is definately a west coasty). The hop bite is like fresh hopslam - to the point where its almost overwhelming.

Mouthfeel is light and the carbonation is perfect.

I was able to put this one down fairly easily despite the seven and a quarter percent abv. There's plenty of flavor, the right amount of alcohol, and really hits the spot if you're looking for a notable IPA. Check this one out if you can get ahold of it.

Received in a trade with portia99. Thanks Bill for the opportunity to try this one.

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into my Brickstone pint glass. Poured a darker blond color in my glass with a very nice three finger head. Aroma was citrus with a hoppy smell right up front. Flavor was a really nice IPA - lots of hop citrus balanced out by the malt that was also present. Mouthfeel was dry and crisp. This was a very tastee treat indeed. This is very drinkable and I would gladly try this one again if the opportunity arises.

Shared with some friends.

A - Poured orange witha 2 fingered off-white head, which dissipated moderately slow. Left some beautiful lacing.

S/T - It was a drive by fruiting. Moderate notes of grapefruit and bittering hops with a backbone of honeyish and caramel malts.

M - Full-bodied, super dry, and malt dominated. Had the dryness of a double IPA, not an IPA.

D - Great. Classic example of an IPA. Few are better than this one.

Wow - this beer is very good! I've had mixed feelings about some of the Alesmith beers available here in OH (although I do love the Speedway Stout), but this one tastes exceptional, and is light enough for some sessionability (at least compared to the Wee Heavy and Grand Cru). Pricey, but I will definitely be buying this again.

It poured a sort of dirty blond color in my glass with towering cumulus-cloud head (Duvel-like). Aroma was a sweet citrus-y hoppiness with some other odd notes present that seemed to fade as the beer warmed and I drank some of it. Flavor was a really nice IPA - lots of hop citrus and dry bitterness balanced by a significant malt framework. Mouthfeel was dry and fairly crisp (versus cloying and sticky, which can be the case in some very citrus-y IPAs). Very good.

I bought this bottle at Blacklick Liquor on Broad St in Columbus/Reynoldsburg/Blacklick. I will likely be back for more!

22 oz. bomber (no freshness) into SN pint glass...had been waiting in vain to try this beer after about a week of going dry...

huge four fingers of sticky white head-great retention, massive pillowy yet rocky froth...hazy burnt yellow/orange body

STRONG citrus character with a giant hop presence...good malt backbone helps keep this floral boquet in check...sweet ass west coast aroma

bitter + bitter=unbalanced!! there is a sweetness near the finish, but the bitterness takes away from everything esle. there is some citrus with a strong hop presence but it quickly fades. it seems as if there is absolutely no malt backbone for it to stand on, which contradicts my thoughts on the nose...

a bit watery and low on carbonation, but just smooth enough to be average

the bitterness hurts but with no alcohol showing, it is a decent quaffer...

is this a good ipa? yeah... is it great? no...

there are a lot of things that have left me a bit befuddled by this beer, mainly the lack of yeast at the bottom of the bottle. either this was old (can't tell when it doesn't have any freshness markings that i can find) or i have started getting tougher on my IPAs. either way, i was expecting more...i will probably revisit this in the future to see if anything changes.

(i don't think Ben and I are drinking the same beer)

A golden amber color with a giant oatmeal big-bubbled head and plenty of lace. Many giant white floaties. The aroma is a spicey floral hops which quickly gives way to a peaty herbal quality. The flavor brings a pleasantly malty citrus-pine hop kick. It's mid-bodied and evenly carbonated. There's yeasty bread and smooth bitterness. Very nice.

This review goes out to my buddy Mason - BitterPachyderm - as he was very consistent on me getting it logged! Cheers buddy!

Poured into New Belgium Globe Glass

Pours 2.5 fingers of very slight tan head. Color is a hazed dull golden copper. The head is very full and has some good retention leaving some lace rings and splattered lace. The color isn't very appealing for an IPA.

From the smell, it seem as this beer is pretty fresh (Got it straight from Cali). A ton of floral and pine hops mixed with a lot of citrus-lemon and grapefruit. A really nice mix. There is also some orange peel.

Taste: A ton of citrus. Grapefruit and lemon. Some orange peel, a little alcohol, tons of floral hops here, a little pine flavor, and last, the typical bready malts. Almost got a 4.5.

Mouthfeel is pretty bitter. At first it made me gag a little which was very weird and I didn't like that. Medium bodied and a medium level of carbonation. Ends with a citrus/somewhat dry aftertaste.

Overall, this is a pretty damn good beer. So far one of the better west coast ipas I have had. A really good price on this great beer.

Edit: I decided to put the yeast on the bottle of the bottle into my last pour to see if it would change the flavor and the only think it did was make the flavor a touch more bready/yeasty. Not much of an affect.

Been on a drinking break due to budget constraints but thought I'd treat myself after an extended work day.

Forms an above average thick and foamy white head with great retention, excellent sticky lacing, and fairly active carbonation. Body is a slightly hazy straw color with hints of amber.

Hops completely rule the aroma. Dominant citrus, some pine, and hints of cannibus. Deeper even more complex floral and herbal aromas come through. Wow! Very little booze aroma considering the high for the style ABV.

Citrus is the most easily identifiable flavor on the palate along with some great underlying pungency. Just enough malt sweetness to keep the hops from running too wild. As it warms an interesting herbal component and some mild campfire snokiness come through. Interesting.

Mouthfeel is suprisingly clean and crisp. There's a nice carb tingle while the alcohol bite is conspicuous by it's absence.

Overall an amazing beer. Among the best I've had in the style. It had been awhile since I'd tried it and it's even better than I remember. I'm glad it's finally becoming easier to find at a reasonable price in my area. If you love American IPA this is a can't miss.

Many thanks to the Whole Foods in University Heights, OH for always having this in stock!

A: Pale orange color ale that poured a very thick and creamy off-white head. Head did not dissolve evenly, but rather left large craters and peaks of thick foam. This did not happen every time, which I think is a plus because not every bottle is the same.

S: Immediate floral hop notes that you'd have to have a cold to not appreciate. Underlying citrus and apricot notes. Overall amazing.

T: Amazing hoppiness! Crisp and immediately bitter but then evening out to apricot and vanilla undertones. Amazing flavor profile if you're able to hold on for the ride. I would suggest really swishing this one around for a while.

M: Moderate carbonation. Clean texture and thickness.

Overall, this is a beer to be enjoyed with other strong flavors that can hold up to the intense hops, such a grilled meats. Anything delicate will be overwhelmed.

Yellow with a great head. And obvious carbonation.
Pine and grapefruit are up front. Along with some resins.
Hops, grapefruit as well as other citrus. Malt backbone is present but not the spotlight. Pine and some sweetness finish.
Great mouthfeel, just the right amount of bubbles with a full body almost in IIPA territory, but not, which I enjoy.
A great beer that I would love to have once a month if that were possible.

A big shout out to my Whole Foods in Valencia for stocking AleSmith. Highly appreciate it.

Poured into a tulip glass showed of its clear yellow hay hue, with lots of head retention, followed with some sticky lacing. Almost as sticky as Arrogant Bastard.

This is a very hop-forward beer, for a lack of better words. Smell is drenched with grapefruits, fantastic pine resin, citrus orange, and a big explosion on floral hops. I think I died and went into a hop coma from this intense aroma. Incredible to say the least.

Taste was a big burst of hoppiness that knocked me on my ass! This sucker has got to be on the best IPA's I have up to now (prior to this was Blind Pig). The cool floral hops come up front, but are in balance with chewy malts. If this beer was a bit higher in ABV. I would easily place it as a DIPA, thats how good and how close it comes.

The mouthfeel was full and chewy. The malt backbone really makes the taster savor every last drop, letting it roll around the tongue accompanied by superb carbonation.

This is a very good beer, amongst other great beers. Perhaps one the best IPA's I've come across. Drinkability factor is great, if one takes the time to fully appreciate its subtleties. Home run for AleSmith. Next on my list is Decadence.
