X - Pale Ale

Alesmith Brewing (San Diego, CA)
"This refreshing, light-golden Extra Pale Ale embodies drinkability. AleSmith X pushes the limits by offering a level of flavor not often found in this classic style. Fresh American hops are abundant but carefully balanced by a light, crisp body and smooth bitterness. Notes of citrus and pine combine with a delicate malt sweetness to create a flavorful drinking experience."

Wonderful smell of orange zest and malt.
Wow is this a tasty beer! The citrus is up front but not overpowering. Crisp, clean with a nice combination of sweet and tart. Pleasingly effervescent.
The most enjoyable new beer I've tried in some time (and may have snuck into my top 10).

5.2% ABV, 24 IBU
