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.

What to say about this beer? Well the bottle itself makes you curious. In the glass the beer looks hazy and has a nice foamlayer. It smells a bit fruity, it tastes a bit fruity but it is the bittersweet aftertaste that convinces me.

Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, citrus, grapefruit, and earthy pine. Flavor is citrus with caramel malt and grapefruit with a pine finish. Classic IPA. One of the best labels ever.

kalervo (1014) - FINLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Kivääritehtaankadulla 4/2016. Balanced and fresh India pale ale. Maybe nothing very special, very good anyway.

skmikeg (1740) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Pours golden amber orange with a one finger white head with good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, grassy hops, herbal hops, some dankness, bready sweet malts, and light caramel. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty, well balanced, east coast style IPA.

tlind2 (1590) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle. Slightly cloudy golden color, frothy white head. Pleasant aroma of dry straw and hops. Fairly dry, hoppy flavor with notes of grapefruit, aniseed, peppermint. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Not my personal favorite.
