COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smuttynose IPA is a physical salute to the glory of the American hop grower. The citrusy hop flavor coming from a mixture of Simcoe and Santiams is pleasantly balanced by a smooth bitterness from the Amarillo hops. The beer itself is light bodied and crisp with a golden color that will throw a slight haze, as we bottle it unfiltered. At 65 IBU’s, this is definitely not a training-wheels IPA, but is meant for hop lovers looking to satisfy their craving in a way that’s not easy to find. We think they’ll be quite pleased.

I like it and I don’t even have a trust fund. A six pack makes me want to play horse polo and join a secret society. Live free or die.

Speedle (266) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2007
poured with an average head, had a hard time determining the smell, grapefruit and pine and somewhat flat, crisp citrus/hop taste with good amount of bitter, favorite of the smutty nose beers...keeper

Nihon (247) - Vernon, Connecticut, USA - APR 18, 2007
Color of apple juice, aroma of sweet hops flowers. Bittersweet hop flavor, almost floral. Bitterness comes on strong at the end.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - APR 15, 2007
Poured in a pint glass with a hazy golden colour with creamy white head. Scents of citrus mostly grapefruit that is really strong. Good lacing. Flavor: citrus hop presence with grapefruit, aftertaste of slight spice and full hop bitterness.

very cloudy when poured. not much head (but my girlfriend poured it). Odd specks floating in it (what is that?). there’s more bitterness than the aroma would lead you to believe. light body. nice ipa.

Thanks to 46er3498 for this bottle. Clear amber in color with big dirty white head. Citrus hoppy aroma. Flavor is the same, but the finish is a nice balance with the malt. Not as hoppy as the nose might lead one to think.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2007
(Bottle) Pours hazy amber with floaters. Hoppy citrus fruit aroma with grapefruit, orange peel, lemon and lime. The maltiness is mostly wet grain like with some sweeter hints. The flavour is spicy and hoppy, mostly citrus with grapefruit up front. Full bitterness. Dry finish. Ok malty backbone but maybe just a tiny bit to thin bodied to be perfect.

Not bad. I must preface this rating with a disclosure of my dislike of IPAs. Smells heavily of grapefruit (at best), and quite a bitter taste. Not sure what all the fuss is about this beer -- it’s good and balanced for an IPA but by no means at the level of Dogfish Head. The IPA craze still eludes me.
