Just had my first Ale Smith Beer, an IPA.http://alesmith.com/beers/alesmith-ipa/
What a great IPA, I could drink this everyday without tiring. The website and bottle does not give any clues about the ingredients.
"Deep golden to light amber color, and a nice off-white head, with good retention when properly served. Starts off with pleasantly strong hop flavors, balanced by a firm malt backdrop, then fades to a dry finish with a lingering hoppiness. Medium straw color, pale tan head. Rich malty aroma with a HUGE dose of hops. Medium-full body with sweet malty flavors and a delicious abundance of aromatic a bittering hops."
What is amazing I had my very own homebrewed Columbus IPA hours before I had theirs, it was identical in color, aroma, flavor. I don't know if this was coincidence or the B3 Columbus IPA # 462, which I tweaked, turned out to be a copy of it?

BEER, a mixture of malted grains, water, hops and yeast, that is transformed through the course of fermentation that transcends the simplicity of those basic ingredients, fundamentally into the drink of life.
