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.

Sampled at the Vermont Brewers Fest 2005. Clear golden pour with a ring of white lace. Aroma of citrusy hops. Flavor of citrusy hops with malt and caramel. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation.

Pours a somewhat cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma is mildly grassy with some grapefruit notes. Flavor is resiny and a "mixed bag" of hops, but very little in the way of maltiness. Body is med.-light. Finish is heavily bitter but not astringent.

Rich, slightly cloudy, amber color. Nice spike of hops to the nose that make me think of fresh cut hay. Splits your tongue almost completely in half with some sweetness up front, bitter in the back, and a solid bar of grapefruit across the middle. My batch was just a mite too grapefruit to warrant a better score

Hazy bodied, somewhat sharply bitter with some grapfruit, woody and earthy hops; hoppiness carries on throughout; some subtle toasty and bready malt notes; good, but not a standout for me.

Bottle. I am not a fan of the New England region being born near NYC but they make damn fine beer. A very hoppy nose from a dark yellow/orange beer. The hoppiness is not overbearing. Not too bitter but still has a little bite.

Not sure how I feel about this one. Tastes like the lovechild of grapefruit juice and beer. The citrus hop flavors dominated the malt throughout. I suspected my palate to be off, but my companion concurred - yup, Tropicana. Decent, but odd. I’ll have to try this one again.
