To start off: You can’t beat a good ole’ IPA. And this IPA delivers your standard fair of the experience.
Alesmith is a San Diego based brewery offering up American classics and specialties alike.
How’d it taste?
Delicious. It’s like any good IPA. A fresh, hoppy taste with slight notes of grapefruit and citrus. The flavor profile is not unlike that of any other IPA. A light, dry mouth feel with a little bit of bitterness peppered throughout.
It had a great pour and like you can see from the video, a perfect head on it too!
How’d it smell?
Dank. It was delightfully light and fresh. When you took a drink, the smell made the taste even better.
A solid 7/10. I’m not saying it was bad by any measure, but it’s a standard fare when it comes to IPAs.
I’ve had better, but this is always going to be a solid fall back option when you can’t find anything else to quench that thirst.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments and as always, cheers!
