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.

On tap at GBBF 05. Golden/orange beer, with a loosely bubbled head. Nice aggressive hoppy beer. Drinkable and fluctuates with a sweet and sourness. Falls off a little on the finish, but still very good.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2007 [bottle] Bright golden color. Aroma is citrusy with a nice bright hoppiness. Good, solid malts. I think this is unbeatable when fresh. Probably one of my favorite beers, ever.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Bottled in May 2005 Pours a hazy copper with a thin white head. Some lacing, not much. Smells of citrusy hops, grapefruit, lime and orange rind. Some hints of tangerine. Taste is bitingly bitter/lightly sweet citrus hops. Hops explode on the tongue. Some crisp pale malt. Orange rind and grapefruit. Mouth is crisp with a long lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Orange rind is prevalent. Well-crafted, it all works nicely together. i could drink these all night long. A very good IPA. If avaialable here in ATL it would be in my regular rotation...

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2005
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense GBBF 2005. A bright vibrant orange coloured beer. The aroma is lovely hoppiness with oranges and grapefruits. It grabs you from a distance saying smell me, drink me. The taste also has good lip pursing hops and dry grapefruit flavours. A really good IPA.

I think this was in trade, but I forget. Sorry. Pours slightly hazy, golden copper, decent head fades to film. Nice bitter citrus hop aroma, slightly herbal. Flavor is very oxidized and acidic. Falls very flat through the middle, slight skunk in the finish. Aroma and appearance really help the score.

harrisoni (16047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2015 Cask @ GBBF Golden beer, green hop and nettles on the aroma, nice hoppy flavours, some tea in the mouth and some sweetness typical of USA IPAs. Nice acidic nettle finish but after a while it was a bit cloying. 3.4/5. Bottle from GBBF 2015, Fresh grapefruit aroma. Juicy in the mouth, good bitter hoppy finish. A bit better in bottle I’d say.

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2005
This is a good ipa, not huge flavor, but the creaminess of the palate was amazing. A little more bite to the flavor and this would go way up.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Pours a nice golden color, with a big foamy head on top. Aroma is earthy, pine and citrus. Flavor is a bit mild, but the hops are clearly evident. Balanced well, though that makes it a little undistinguished. Still a nice brew.
