BEER INFO

Brewed by:
AleSmith Brewing Company
California, United States
alesmith.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Also known as YuleSmith (Summer)

Every year we anxiously await the warmer months to unleash this Double IPA, the summer edition of our former YuleSmith seasonals. The flavor imparts orange, grapefruit, and tangerine hop notes with earthy, spicy, and resinous pine undertones. A sturdy malt backbone balances out the profound hop bitterness to create a refreshingly assertive and vibrant beer that offers an unapologetically bold expression of fresh American hops.

YEAR ROUND: No – July / August

Beer is hazy golden in colour with a good-sized white head. Dissipates quickly. Good lacing.

Scent is a nice mix of toasty, bready malt and grassy, floral, citrusy hops. Hops are the focus but the malt is present and good. Very nice.

Flavour is similar to the nose- hop focused but not without a malt presence. Pine, grass and citrus (orange) flavours are all present. Bready, caramel malt providing backbone.

Full bodied, moderate to high carbonation. A bit oily.

Overall, very good. I was quite impressed.
