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.

A very nice beer. Pours gold and cloudy, looks like a belgian style ale. Very hoppy nose, very hoppy flavor with a very sneaky sweetness that is quite enjoyable. Nice long finish, a high quality beer.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Floral aroma with a good amount of head. Cloudy gold in color. Typical IPA flavoring with a good amount of bitterness. Not an outstanding IPA but certainly better than the commercial levels of the style.

Totally awesome IPA. Love the label. Pours lilke ditry golden dishwater with a creamy head. Tingles on the tongue million bitter hoppy explosions. Very smooth clean finish.

Bottle. Hazy orange-hued body with a wisp of white head. Lemon and sugar cookie aroma with orange highlights. Big grapefruit hop flavor - resinous rind and dandeion leaf. There’s no pronouced sweet background, the dandelion seems to satisfy the balancing act. Perhaps a bit of crystal malt. Medium mouthfeel with a light zip. This is a really typical but also really good-tasting IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2007 Pours to a glowing golden orange body with a creamy white head. Excellent lacing. The aroma is hoppy with fresh lemon cookies and light oranges. Could almost be confused for a lemon filled donut. The flavor is lemons, oranges, and bitter malts. Kinda hard to describe in overall taste but it is quite different than other IPAs. I’d almost call it bitter and citrusy malts than hops. They blend so well. It must be all the Simcoe hops... also, they say they use Santiams hops. I’ve never heard of them, but the beer tastes good. The palate is medium bodied with a noticeable hop feel. This is a good beer. Thanks Smuttynose!

TomDecapolis (4579) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Pours a hazy orange/slight amber with an off white lacing head and small floaties. Aroma of pine, citrus (mostly oranges), just a great overall hop aroma. Flavors of the same with a great malt balance. A very solid IPA.

BeerMountie (117) - Placentia, Newfoundland, CANADA - NOV 14, 2005
12 oz bottle. Hazy orange colour with a small head which quickly changes to a ring. Some sediment. Good aroma and overall appearance. There are a lot of hops in here. My only compliant is that there may even be too many hops.

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2005 strong fruity hop aroma - i mean really strong. Appearance loses a point because of the ’cloudyness’ Resembles a dark belgian wit with the ’sea monkeys’. The flavor is all hops- could be better balanced. I’m curious what ht IBU’s are- ’cause this is a bitter as Stones Ruinatuion IPA

Aurelius (4497) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Stock, hoppy PA aroma. Lightly hazy, orangey gold. Hoppy, pretty clean. Hops build, not too sweet, some crackery notes. Sturdy mouth, long finish with very light diacetyl. On tap, Blind Tiger, NYC. HHR 4th trip.
