AleSmith Brewing Company Hazy .394 – American IPA at 6% ABV | 13 IBU

AleSmith Brewing Company Hazy .394 – American IPA at 6% ABV | 13 IBU (C$5.26 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 21-Apr-2021, acquired 15-Jul-2021, reviewed 26-Jul-2021)

Appearance: hazy medium gold with two fingers of dense pale ivory head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, doughy caramel, citrus, pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, low bitter. (7/10) Medium slightly creamy body, moderate-lively carbonation, off-dry medium duration finish. (3/5)

Slightly old-fashioned, in the sense that the caramel malt is definitely vying for dominance with a mixed bag of fruit, with a little pine coming up the rear. Not to be overly critical, but ultimately there’s not a lot to particularly distinguish this among a fairly crowded field. (14/20)
