AleSmith Brewing Company Double IPA

“Nice hops fruitiness with an even blend of blueberry, mango, and grapefruit rind. The hops bitterness and the light sweetness accentuate a piney hops character (a bit of Christmas tree) that helps balance and dry out the beer. A nice touch of boozy warmth also helps to fill out this beer. Bitterness lingers just a little too long, into the point of unwelcome aftertaste.”
