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.

Pours an light amber from a bottle. Aroma of citrusy hops, flavor similar, grapefruit notes are heavy. Bitter, but not overly so, a little thin in the mouth, but overall a good beer.

Jyrsa (255) - - JUL 15, 2015
Tap as Finestkind IPA @ Oliver Twist. Clear amber with medium snow white head. Nose has pine and grass with caramel and raisin. Basic IIPAishs caramel body with hops, except on a lighter foundation. Nicely balanced though. Light, nonintrusive palate. Long, sweet and slightly hoppy after taste. A Heisen-IPA that’s between one I and two.

355 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, amber orange with a small, off-white head that laces. Nice hoppy, grapefruit aroma with a hint of pine. Sweet grapefruit flavour with a hint of peach and a dry, bitter, pine finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Simple but nice.

Don’t focus on the ingredients like all the other raters. Just know that you will love the look, smell, and taste of this IPA. Few get any better and more enjoying than this one.
