179th Daily Growler of Ever

Alesmith IPA $14/growler

Alesmith is a small, but immensely respected, brewery from San Diego. They’ve been around for almost 20 years, but we’re just starting to see their beer on draft. An American-style IPA to satisfy the yearnings of the most die-hard hopheads. Starts off with strong citrusy, resiny flavors, balanced by a nice malty sweetness, then fades to a dry finish with a lingering hoppiness and a faint hint of plums and black cherries. Smooth, medium-bodied. 7.3%
