Nice light cloudy amber. Low carbonation gives it a thick mouthfeel, satisfying. Aroma is a nice fresh citrus. Taste is bold and hoppy, very pleasant bitter. Aftertaste clears quickly, asking for another sip!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear golden with medium white head. Some lacing. Lots of bubbles. Aroma is of malt, citrus, fruits, very slight smoke, sugar, resin. Taste is of malt, citrus, fruits, bitterness, pine, resin. Palate: Medium body. Overall: Good. "Light bodied and crisp" (as per commercial description), well, I don’t think so. Bitterness is a tad harsh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fairly annoyed that this wasn’t a varietal on the original Smuttynose IPA. Fairly average IPA. Scent is grassy and piney. Flavor is all nondescript bitterness. Bubbly and light medium. Meh. Bottle - Intown Market - Atlanta, GA
