I finally got a summer Yulesmith last week and it exceeded expectations. Its color was a rich British tan and the smell was floral. Alesmith has had carbonation issues in the past. Carbonation was not a problem on this beer as a standard pour resulted in half the glass being head. The head was pure white and it took a few minutes for it to dissipate enough to drink the beer. The hops were prominent, like all good double IPAs, and the finish was balanced not overly bitter. I love the sweet and bitter conflict in a quality IPA. I have two Yulesmith's left and will buy more if the opportunity arises.
