4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours from the bomber to a hazy orange red with thick white head that lingered thru the entire drink and left great lacing on the glass. Aroma was a very pronounced citrus grapefruit hop, with a hint of apples and lemons, alomng with malted dark fruit. Mouthfeel was full (almost to the point of being chewy) and delightfully bitter, with just enough malty sweetness to keep from getting out of hand. The flavor of the taste just accentuated the aromas of the nose, and the finish was long, bittersweet and dry, as expected. By far the best I’ve had from Smutty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours hazy bright and pale golden with a nice creamy white head, good retention and lacing. danky hops - weed, citrus, grapefruit, spicy c’s, pine, some juicy oranges and almost tropical fruitiness, booze - fairly warming, doughy and pillowy spicy toasted maltiness - hint of caramel, fresh leafygrassiness, hint of coconut and sulfur. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, short to medium long boozy and grassy-citrusy-piney finish. tingling but nicely crafted.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. deep golden with small head. rather bland hop flavors -- seems stale and flat. i just don’t dig the earthy hops used in east coast IPAs. very pedestrian take on a double IPA.

A complex aroma of hops, citrus raisins and a hint of malt. Cloudy orange colour without much head. A bitter taste with a hint of dried fruit. Bitter palate of citrus zest.

For our hopping regime we went with Cascade and Nuggets in the boiling addition. Centennials were added every 5 minutes for the last 30 minutes of the boil

En mycket spännande lukt som slår hårt i näsan. Hög beska och mycket fin kolsyra. Fruktig men inte så att det tar över. Detta var min första Smutty och sen dess är jag fast. Mästerverk.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A nice aroma which fades as you drink like many IPA. Nice clarity with a thin lasting head. Citrus and Pungent Hops provide a nice flavor. Maybe a bit to pungent for my liking. Nice thickness on the tongue as expected for a DIPA. Overall nice DIPA, not a miracle but good.

Murky orange pour, nose of grapefruit, lemon peel, some resin and a hint of malt in the background. Slick palate, big grapefruit and resin on the taste. Good stuff

Smell of Curtis is outstanding! Beautiful white thick head. But the hoppy balance with the malt is slightly off. But still a very good beer. After taste is slightly off.
