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.

Brandman (2653) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 22, 2016
Cloudy orange body, white head. Aroma has resiny hops, alcohol, raisins, sweet caramel, pines. Very intense bitterness, bit tarish piney aftertaste. Huge "dark hoppiness". Cant say it otherwise, bit dank. Actually had this one couple of years earlier somewhere in New England. Liked the label then and like it now.
