I prefer AleSmith. It's pretty awesome. That's what our People's Choice Award says to us. Each year at the San Diego Real Ale Festival, everyone is asked to vote for their favorite beer. In 2001, they chose AleSmith IPA over all the others. If you like your beer hoppy, you're gonna love this one! AleSmith IPA is brewed using only premium-quality malts, along with pounds and pounds of the freshest hops and our championship yeast strain. Even the water we use is precisely conditioned to make sure everything is just right for the best possible product. The result is a hoppy, malty hand-forged American-style IPA with a tantalizing aroma and a flavor that'll have your taste buds in ecstasy! The brewer's yeast at the bottom of the bottle is living proof that this is a top-quality bottle-conditioned beer. Conditioning in the bottle gives the beer a lush, velvety texture that you just can't get with force-carbonating. The bubbles are smaller, giving your taste buds a lot more surface area to grab onto, and the difference shows from the first sip to the last. Alcohol 7.25% by volume. Brewed & bottled by AleSmith Brewing Co., San Diego, CA.
