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.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2005
On tap. Pretty standard IPA in most regards. Poured a rich orange/copper with the standard thin white head. Citrus and pine with a bit of a mild fruit undertone. Worth revisiting.

GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2005

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Hazed golden color with a small but stable off white head. Huge fresh hops/grapefruit nose. Mild dough and biscuit background. Light sweet pale malt start that gets balanced quite well by a light citric and slightly floral hops. Seems slightly thinner in the end and finish with a mild pine wood component. (7+). A mild malt return late in the finish. Seems to have more pine the further one travels into this one. Quite good.

jdjuice (390) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - DEC 1, 2005
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.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2005
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.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2005
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 (4592) - 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.
