The Brü Revü – Alesmith Yulesmith (Summer)
Yulesmith is another great Alesmith beer I brought back from San Diego. They make the Yulesmith twice a year, in the summer and the winter. The summer version is an Imperial IPA and it is fantastic! Yulesmith hits all the right IPA notes with a good strong hop aroma and flavor with a nice malt backbone and a hint of vanilla that gave it a slightly sweet finish. It was a well-balanced beer that was velvety smooth with a rich complex flavor. It was highly drinkable despite the high alcohol content and one that I wish I could get regularly, but unfortunately it’s not available in Texas. There is not much else to say about the Yulesmith other than it was amazing!
