Alesmith Double IPA (2016)
AleSmith Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
Impeccably scored by RateBeer with a perfect 100 across the board, the community considers AleSmith Brewing Company’s Double IPA to be one of the best Imperial IPAs of all time. Calling it legendary would be an understatement.
A powerhouse DIPA for over a decade, this extremely limited beer is one of Alesmith’s most revered creations. Its bounty of 105 IBUs of liquid gold hops and 8.5% ABV is perfect for impressing your craft beer loving friends looking to taste of the best of the very best.
So what does perfection taste like? The kind of hop-forward commitment you’d expect from a multiple GABF Gold winner and Best Small Brewery of the year. It’s a flourish of pine-soaked resin coated grapefruits drenched in an herbal melody of zested oranges. Aromas of candied lemons enshrined in dank attitude march through the senses. A storm of caramel spice and green garlic rain upon the tongue into a resounding bitter refrain.
Beer geeks and Southern Californian hopheads scramble to bottle shops every summer, emptying the shelves as fast as the beer arrives. Make sure you get your fill while you can - this kind of perfection won’t be around for long.
